A decent JBL Clip 3 charger, is one that delivers enough juice to fully recharge this speaker in the least amount of time (around 3 hours). Note that currently, JBL does not include a USB charger with the Clip 3. So, you’ll need to either have one already or buy one.
Also, the speaker has a micro USB charging port. So if you decide to buy one of the USB-C charger options below, then be sure to also get the right USB-C cable. You’ll use this to connect the speaker to whatever charger of choice. Details follow.
Furthermore, the maximum current this speaker accepts is 0.6 amps to get the speediest recharging performance. Either use a USB-C to USB-C cord, or a USB-A to USB-C cable if you go with one of the older USB 2.0 chargers below.
Which JBL Clip 3 Charger Works Well ?
We’ve successfully charged our Clip 3 speaker with the AC chargers below. Note that some of these feature a USB A type female connector. So, you can use an adapter like these to connect your speaker if you wish to use the USB-C to USB-A cord that comes with the JBL Clip 3. Or, if your charger only has USB-C output ports, then you’ll need a USB-C to micro USB cable, which they do not include with the speaker.
Now, to the chargers we suggest.
USB-C Chargers that Work with the JBL Clip 3
This group of chargers can recharge the JBL Clip 3 at the max power that the speaker can draw (3 watts). Plus none of these is too expensive. But for some of them, you will need a USB-C to Micro USB cable to connect each charger to the speaker.
