How to Put JBL Flip 2 in Pairing Mode

To pair the JBL Flip 2 speaker with a Bluetooth source device for the first time, or to fix the connection information stored on that device, you must know how to initiate pairing mode on this speaker.  In pairing mode, the JBL Flip 2 signals its name and current pairing data over the BT airwaves such that nearby devices can find it, and pair to it.  So in this piece, we show you how to put the JBL Flip 2 into pairing mode (another name for discovery mode).  In this mode, you can then link to it and finally, play music through it from tablets, phones, smart speakers, and computers.
