JBL Flip 6 Charge Time to Fully Recharge

You charge JBL Flip 6 Bluetooth speakers conveniently via their USB-C charge port, and to get the shortest charge time and fullest charge when the Flip 6 runs dead, be sure to use a large enough USB-C power delivery adapter.

JBL Flip 6 Charge Time: How Long to Fully Recharge

According to the specs for this speaker the time it takes to charge the JBL Flip 6 Bluetooth speaker is two hours and thirty minutes (2.5 hours) when you use a 5 volt, 3 amp, 15 watt (at least) adapter.

JBL Flip 6 Charge Time: How Long it Plays Per Single Charge

On a full charge, the JBL Flip 6 speaker can play for up to twelve (12) hours from a single charge, due to its 4,800 MaH, 3.6 volt, 17.28 watt-hour lithium ion polymer battery.  But when you play it extra loud, particularly with lots of bass, you will see shorter playing times.  We’ve seen this speaker run dead in around nine hours when run at full volume. So to get the most charge time from it, power conservation is key.  Only play it as loudly as you need to.

The Charge Time Shrinks Over Time

If you own this speaker over a few to several years, you may notice that the time it plays from a single charge decreases as it ages.  This is normal for devices such as this one, that rely on lithium ion polymer batters.  But by exercising the battery, you can slow this wearing out.  To exercise the JBL Flip 6, run the battery dead and charge it again every three to six months when you don’t use the speaker.

Also, we suggest that you not leave the speaker plugged into a charger once it is fully charged.  Once the charging lamps completely go out, disconnect the speaker right away to avoid overcharging and battery damage.
