JBL Charge 4 Charger Details

An adequate JBL Charge 4 charger is one that supplies enough power to fully recharge this speaker in the least amount of time (around 4 hours). Note that currently, JBL does not include a USB charger with this speaker.  So, you’ll need to either have one already or buy one.

Also, the speaker has a USB-C charging port. So be sure to have the right USB-C cable on hand, to connect the speaker to whatever charger you decide to use.

Furthermore, the maximum current this speaker accepts is 2.3 amps, and this gives the fastest charging performance. So you’ll get that whether you use a USB-A or USB-C charger.  Just be sure to get the right cable, depending on the charger you have.

Which JBL Charge 4 Charger Works Best?

We’ve successfully charged our Charge 4 speaker with the AC adapters we list below. Note that some of these feature a USB A type female connector.  So, you can use an AC adapter like these to connect your speaker if you wish to use the USB-C to USB-A cord that comes with the JBL Charge 4.  Or, if your charger only has a USB-C output port, you’ll need to get a USB-C to USB-C cable.

Now, to the chargers we suggest.

USB-C Chargers that Work Well with the JBL Charge 4

This group of chargers can recharge the JBL Charge 4 at the max power that the speaker will draw (11.5 watts).  Plus none of these is very much money. But for most of them, you will need a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect each charger to the speaker.

USB-A Chargers that Also Work with the JBL Charge 4 Speaker

1. Gearmo Ten Port USB Charging Station

This hefty household wall charging station delivers all the current you need for charging your JBL Charge 4 speaker.  It delivers full USB 2 power on each and every one of its ten output ports.  This means that you won’t increase the speaker charging time when you charge more than one device on it. In fact, this charging station supplies enough juice to charge all older models in the JBL Charge line of portable Bluetooth speakers. Furthermore, you can charge them all at the same time as well. Find this useful USB accessory here at Amazon.com.  We also reviewed this charging station here.

2. CE Tech 4 Port USB Wall Charger 

This CE Tech charging station is another beefy unit, well suited for recharging most JBL Charge speakers in the shortest time possible.  This well built USB power hub is available on eBay for under thirty US dollars here.  We also review this quad port charging system here.

3. GE Jasco Y14 11307 USB AC Charger

This charger is available at Amazon.com.  See an equivalent charger’s product page at Amazon.com, here.   At less than twelve dollars, this dual port AC USB wall adapter, with its folding plug prongs, is small enough to fit in any mobile device accessory travel kit.  It’s also great when you take your speaker on vacation, because it features a night light.  Makes finding your way around strange hotel rooms a cinch.  See our   GE Jasco 2.1 Amp USB Charger, Y14 Review   post for more details on this affordable and practical JBL Charge 4 USB charger solution.

4. JBL Charger for the Charge 4

Finally, some JBL speakers come with this JBL AC adapter included.  We find that while this wall charger does not come with the 4, it still charges the speaker very well just the same.  See our JBL Bluetooth Speaker USB AC Charger Adapter Specs for further details.
