You can charge JBL Clip 2 wireless Bluetooth speakers conveniently via the hidden USB charge port. Here, we run through how to charge the JBL Clip 2 speaker for these beach-ready wireless speakers.
In short: First, select an powerful enough USB charging adapter. Why this? Because JBL does not include this with the Clip 2 as a standard accessory.
Next, connect a micro USB charge cable between the Clip 2 and that adapter. Then, plug the adapter into a working wall outlet. Finally after a few hours, your JBL Clip 3 speaker fully charges, and you’ll be able to play it again for up to ten hours before needing to charge it again.

1. Choose Right Size Power Adapter
In this demo, we’re using the RavPower 24 watt dual port USB charger adapter, as shown next. The JBL Clip 2 needs 5 volts at approximately 0.6 amps to charge fully in a reasonable amount of time. So this RavPower USB adapter is indeed beefy enough to recharge the Clip2 with lots of time to spare.

Use a penny or a dime to work open the waterproof seal port cover on the Clip Twi. This reveals the micro USB charging port inside, as shown next.

Then, plug the small end of your micro USB charge cable into the matching micro USB port in the Clip2 , as shown next.
5. Plug the Other End of the USB Cord into your USB Power Adapter

The status lamp lights up solid red on the JBL Clip 2 when you supply enough USB power. While no battery status gauge shows percentage of charge, te red lamp means that charging is in progress. Then it goes out when charging completes.
