You can recharge the JBL Flip 6 wireless speakers through their top-panel USB-C charging ports. To summarize how to charge the JBL Flip 6: First, pick a right sized USB power adapter, as this speaker does not ship with one.
Next, connect a USB-C cable included between the Flip 6 and the power supply you’re going to use.
Then, connect that adapter to a working AC or vehicle outlet.
Finally after two and a half to three hours, your speaker will completely recharge. Then, you’ll have music again for up to twelve hours (about), before you must charge it anew.
How to Charge JBL Flip 6 Wireless Speaker
1. Choose Right Size Charger
We suggest that the power supply you use to charge this speaker should be able deliver 15 watts (5 volts at 3 amps) to get the quickest charging times. Now for the absolute fastest charging, we recommend using a USB-C power supply, or one that supports USB PD or QC 3.0. Furthermore, to avoid having to get a cord with different ends than then one that comes with the speaker, pick a charger with a female USB-A output port. But unless the one you choose has QC 3.0 capability, it won’t charge your speaker the quickest.
For this demo, we use the Key Power charger station, along with a USB-C to USB-C cable.
2. Plug in the USB-C Cord to Continue with How to Charge JBL Flip 6
Insert the small end of the USB-C charging cable into the matching port in the speaker front, as we see next.
3. Plug the Other End of the Cord into the Charger Adapter
Next, connect the A (or C in our case here) end of the USB charge cable to your power supply of choice.
4. Plug that Wall Adapter into a Working Outlet
Now that the speaker and the AC adapter are tethered, we plug the charger into a working AC outlet.
At least a small part of the battery bar gauge should light up on the speaker when you apply enough USB power. Then as charging progresses, more of the bar illuminates.
5. Allow the Flip 6 to Charge Until the Battery Meter Goes Completely Dark
Recharging is almost done when all but the last of the battery gauge lights glows solid. The last one continues flashing though, for a few minutes more while the system tops off the charging.
After that, the battery recharge cycle finishes when the gauge goes out completely.
6. Unplug the Charging Cable
7. Done with How to Charge the JBL Flip 6 !
We have now fully charged our Flip 6. To further check this, look at the battery indicator just after turning the speaker on afterwards. The whole battery gauge bar should glow, as we show in the last picture. This means that the speaker has indeed fully charged.
Repeat this recharging every twelve hours of music play, to keep its battery in top shape. We charge ours when the battery indicator shows only one light glowing.
