JBL Flip 5 Specs, Specifications

Here, we list JBL Flip 5 specs.  First of all, these specifications cover the speaker’s length, width, weight, battery recharge time, output power, and music play time per charge.  We also give this speaker’s frequency response, and Bluetooth support details as well as other interesting tidbits.

Moreover, it’s clear from the published specs, that the JBL Flip 5, 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.
