JBL Charge 5: JBL has presented the latest addition to the JBL Charge series. We are already ready for the fifth version with the JBL Charge 5. The design has been renewed and made completely water and dust proof. The sound has also been improved.
JBL has adapted the design of the Bluetooth speaker. It is still a tube, but slightly less round and smooth than the Charge 4. For example, the bottom has been made wider towards the sides and the top is slightly shorter. We find the physical buttons on top of the speaker. The JBL Charge 5 has a racetrack-shaped driver, separate tweeter and dual passive radiators. This should ensure a clear sound and deep bass. According to the company, the speaker delivers JBL Signature Pro Sound in a durable design.
The Bluetooth speaker has a playback time of 20 hours and can also serve as a 7500 mAh power bank to charge other devices. You can connect the speaker to other portable JBL speakers via JBL Partyboost to amplify the sound.
This new version is equipped with silicone bumpers. On the side you will find the company’s signature logo. The speaker uses Bluetooth 5.1.
