I purchased a teal colored Charge 5 a couple months ago! I love it and have listened to it about 18 hours a day. I just purchased a matching pair to get even better sound.

Love This Speaker

After my last Bluetooth speaker died I was in need of something, & quickly. Friends of mine have had various models of the JBL Bluetooth speakers so I went to give them a try. These pack a punch for it's size, with loads of depth & bass. Great for travel due to the size and the battery life is excellent. It does what it says and it's a good value for the price!

Good sound. hard to use

Love the sound, but hate that I have to reset the Bluetooth connection every single time I want to use the speakers...even if I have stopped playing music from my phone for a minute. Most frustrating

Horrible battery

I will not recommend the charge 5 to anybody. If you work in a factory and you have it loud to hear it it doesn't last but maybe an hr if your lucky. Will never buy the charge 5 again. I'm so mad. Waste of money. You always have to have it plugged in at work.

Not close to the 20 hours of playback advertised

I bought the Charge 5 about a month ago and I’m probably on my 4th full charge and the playtime advertised at 20 hours is nowhere near what I’m getting. On a full charge I’m getting about 4 hours worth and that’s playing music not even at full volume, probably around 60% of the volume.

I'm not actually asking about Party Boost (Party Boost is two or more speakers playing mono at the same time). I'm wondering about pairing them to make STEREO. Thanks!

According to JBL, "The Charge 5 supports the Partyboost feature. It can only connect to another JBL Charge 5, Pulse 4, JBL Boombox 2 and JBL Flip 5 as they also support Partyboost." Hope this helps.

How do listen to my call thru it
Asked by: Denise
According to JBL, "This unit can be used to listen to calls using bluetooth while you are in a call, but apparently this unit has no speaker phone features that which allows you to use as a microphone." Hope this helps.
