JBL Flip 5 Speaker Specs

Lists the JBL Flip 5 speaker specs.  Firstly, these cover the speaker’s length, width, weight, output power, and music play time per charge.  We also give the frequency response, and Bluetooth support details and other interesting tidbits.

Moreover, it’s clear from the specs, that the JBL Flip 5 speaker, released in August of 2019, sounds pretty good. Indeed it sure plays loud enough, with its twenty watts of mono audio power. Plus, the passive yet hefty radiators give more bass than models like the prior Flip 4.

Furthermore, even at max output, the lithium ion polymer battery lasts up to twelve hours per charge.

The specs certainly do not bely the great features JBL put into this medium level waterproof Bluetooth speaker.  Finally, the USB-C charging system provides faster recharging times as well.
