JBL Flip 4 Wall Charger, Which AC Adapter Works Best

An adequate JBL Flip 4 wall charger, is a USB AC charger that supplies at least 2.1 amps at 5 volts (12 watts or more). Note that currently, JBL does not include a compatible USB charger with its Flip 4 speaker.  So, you’ll need to either have one already on hand, or purchase one.





Which JBL Flip 4 Charger Type Works Best?

We’ve successfully charged our JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker with the chargers, listed below. Note that all these JBL speaker chargers feature a USB A type female connector.  You’ll need an AC adapter like these to connect your speaker if you wish to use the orange USB charging cable that comes with the JBL Flip 4, pictured next.

5. JBL Charger for the Xtreme and Charge Bluetooth Speakers, Also Works on the JBL Flip 4

Finally, if you bought the JBL Charge 3 speaker, you probably got this JBL AC adapter included.  We’ve found that while this wall charger does not come with our Flip 4, it charges the speaker very well just the same.  See our JBL Charge 3 Bluetooth Speaker USB AC Charger Adapter Specs for further details.

JBL Flip 4 Wall Charger Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why Won’t my JBL Flip 4 Charge?

Defective charger or USB power cable can cause no charging problem.  Try different but compatible AC adapters and micro USB to A cables.  Also, a broken USB charging port on the speaker causes low or non charging on occasion.  For this, take the speaker to a qualified technician for a port replacement.  Finally worn out batteries refuse to accept recharging.  Replace the battery to solve.  Otherwise, a malfunction in the Flip 4 internal electronics can cause non charging.  Replace the speaker in this case.

JBL Flip 4 Won’t Turn On or Charge.  Why?  

The internal battery may have discharged completely.  Happens when the speaker is run down to non operating status without a battery recharge.  Prolonged battery “deadness” can permanently damage the battery, rendering it incapable of recharging.  Replacing the battery with a fresh one often solves this problem.  Also, a faulty AC charger or USB cable could be to blame.  Swap out each of these with a known good unit and see if the problem continues. Finally, see the previous question for further details.
