My speaker has been great but in the last couple of weeks it is constantly turning itself on. Inside the case, outside the case. It is becoming a problem. Is this a common problem?

Can I plug a guitar into the mini jack? I tried a phono to mini cable. I get noise plugging it in, but no sound from instrument.

Asked by Inspectorzu April 7, 2021

Answer

That mini jack is called an auxillary port and only a 3.5 mm auxillary cable goes into that port. The auxillary cable connects to your source device then into the speaker if you don't want use Bluetooth pairing. These source devices are your smartphones, laptops, tablets and personal computers.

Does charging time increase from 4 hours if the speaker is being played while it's charging?

Asked by gkp1 March 27, 2021
1
Answer

There's no harm in using the JBL Charge 4 while charging. The battery increases depending on the charging time, and it will not overcharge. You can pick it up, unplug it from the charger and be on your way, knowing that you have a full charge. However, if you’d like to conserve electrical energy, disconnect from charging.

Hello. I bought a Charge 4 ... it's great. But when i turn on / off the speaker at night ... the sound that it make is to loud ... i can't turn this on at night because of that ... why i can't mute that sound or bluetooth finding sound is too loud too.

Asked by Fran8411 March 16, 2021

Answer

There is a new feature through the JBL Portable app that allows you to turn off all internal tones on our BT speakers. Please turn on the speaker and open the app. Once the app recognizes your speaker, navigate to the gear symbol to the right. Then, go into settings, you will see the option to turn on or off the "Audio Feedback Sounds". If it's greyed out, that means that you have turned off all audio tones to your speaker.

I have two Charge 4's in my home.  Can I name one something other than JBL Charge 4 to avoid confusion when two people want to play music on the separate units at the same time?

Answer

Yes, you can rename your JBL Charge 4 using the JBL Portable app. The app can be downloaded in the Play Store for Android and App Store for IOS devices.

Makes Work Enjoyable
I work in an automotive shop - we have been sinking our JBL’s up at work. Someone plays DJ and you can here the tunes throughout the shop. It really makes work enjoyable lately. It’s nice to share music with everyone. Thanks! A happy customer!

Awesome Speaker
I had a Sony speaker and it gave out so I was looking for a new speaker with a long battery life and good bass. I did a lot of research for the best quality speaker for the money and JBL topped most of the charts. I ended up choosing the JBL Charge 4 and I am very happy with my purchase. I took it to the beach and it lasted the whole day at a high volume. The sound quality is great. I have already been recommending this speaker to friends and family.

Great sound, bad battery
Bought a refurbished Charge 4 about two weeks ago. I am very impressed with the sound quality and the portability of the speaker. The problem comes in trying to get my speaker to charge. I've had it plugged in for over a day and the battery will not charge, even after using different cables. Very disappointed. I will be sending this back.
