Why you should buy the JBL Charge 5 Bluetooth speaker

JBL has been making quality portable speakers for some time, with some of them among the best Bluetooth speakers and the best wireless speakers. The JBL Charge 5 portable Bluetooth speaker is one of its most popular models. It produces high quality sound with an optimized long excursion driver, separate tweeter, and dual pumping JBL bass radiators. These deliver rich and clear audio, and sound great with music but can playback movies and other entertainment with great fidelity by connecting to a laptop or other such Bluetooth device. It’s able to connect to two smartphones or tablets at a time, which makes source audio swappable and a potential community experience.

One great thing to know about the JBL Charge 5 portable speaker is that it’s IP67 waterproof and rustproof. This makes it a great option for the beach, the park, or rainy barbecues in the backyard. It’s able to reach up to 20 hours of playtime on a single battery charge, and it also has a built-in powerbank that allows you to charge your other devices. This will keep the party going longer should anybody’s smartphone battery start running low. The JBL Charge 5 can connect to a second JBL Charge 5 with PartyBoost mode. This allows the speakers to work together to produce stereo sound or fill larger spaces with music.
