JBL Clip 2 Charger, Which USB Charger Replacement




An adequate JBL Clip 2 charger is a USB car or AC charger that delivers a nominal 2 amps at 5 volts (10 watts or more). Note that currently, JBL did not provide a compatible AC or car charger with its Clip 2 Bluetooth speaker.  So, you’ll need  one already on hand, or buy an accessory charger.
