This post shows how to pair a Charge 4 Bluetooth speaker with common source devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad line of Apple phones and tablets. A routine with some small variation also works for Android phones and tablets.
How to Pair the Charge 4 Bluetooth Speaker, Step by Step
With your Charge 4 switched off (power button is dark), run through this routine to pair it to your mobile device. We use an iPad Air tablet for this demo.
1. Find your Way to the Home Screen on your Tablet or Phone
Press the Home button to uncover the mobile device’s Home screen.
2. Find the Settings App
We found ours on the second page of our Home screen.
3. Bring up the Settings App
Thirdly, tap the Settings app icon.
The source device then displays the first page of its settings, as shown in the next step.
4. Go to Bluetooth Settings to Continue with How to Pair a Charge 4 Speaker
Our Bluetooth Settings screen displays as follows. Note that Bluetooth is enabled here. But since this speaker is currently powered OFF, it does not show up in the Bluetooth Devices list. Also, we don’t see it since we’ve never paired this speaker with this iPad Air before. See this as shown in this list of previously paired Bluetooth devices, shown next.
5. Turn On your Charge 4
Turn on the 4 with a quick press of its Power button. See this pointed at by the green arrow in the next picture.
The speaker then powers up.
But since our iPad Air does not know about this Charge 4, it will not pair with it automatically.
The light in the Power switch then comes on white. The white glowing Power button denotes this not-paired state as shown next.
6. Put your Charge 4 Speaker into Discovery Mode
Now, to see the Charge 4 on your source BT device, put it into Bluetooth discovery mode. To do that, press and release the Pairing button, as shown in the next picture.
When you press the Bluetooth Pairing button, the speaker makes a repeating single pluck guitar note sound several times. Also, that same button starts flashing white. See this next,
7. Find your Charge 4 on your Source Device
See the screen shot next. We found our Bluetooth speaker, as we point out with the green arrow, as shown next.
8. Pair with your Charge 4 Bluetooth Speaker
Tap the listed speaker in the Other Devices section of the Bluetooth devices list, shown above.
Your mobile device then pairs with the speaker (“Tom’s Charge 4” in this demo).
The device’s Bluetooth Settings screen then changes to look something like the following.
Note that the Charge 4 now shows as paired, as pointed at by the green arrows in the last picture.
9. Done with How to Pair the Charge 4 !
Finally, we have now successfully paired this power bank speaker with our iPadOS tablet. Again, this routine also applies when pairing with Apple iPhone and iPod devices, although the screen faces may differ slightly on the iPhone.
