An adequate JBL Flip 5 charger type, is a USB AC wall or car charger that supplies at least 2.4 amps at 5 volts (14 watts or more). Note that currently, JBL does not include a compatible USB charger with this speaker. So, you’ll need to either have one already or purchase 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 3 amps, and this gives the fastest charging performance. But in order to get that, you’ll need a charger with a USB-C output port, rather than the USB-A style connector. So we suggest that you get a USB C charger that can deliver 15 watts (5 volts at 3 amps) for the most rapid charging.
Which JBL Flip 5 Charger Type Works Best?
We’ve successfully charged our JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker with the chargers, listed below. Note that all these chargers 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 black USB-C charging cable that comes with the JBL Flip 5. 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 suggested chargers.
USB-C Chargers that Work Well with the JBL Flip 5
This section is under construction while we get the following chargers into the shop here to test. But will mention them here along with links to more information about each one. In the meantime, this group of chargers can recharge the JBL Flip 5 at the maximum power that the speaker can take (15 watts). Plus none of these is very expensive, although for most of them, you will need a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect each charger to the speaker.
