JBL Flip 6 Charger Type

An adequate JBL Flip 6 charger type, is a USB AC wall or car charger that supplies at enough power to recharge the speaker in the specified time of 2.5 hours. Note that currently, JBL does not include an AC 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 either a charger with a USB-C output port, or one that has the USB-A style connector but supports the QC 3.0 or USB PD charging protocols.  So we suggest that you get a (either USB-C, QC3.0, or USB PD) charger, that can deliver 15 watts (5 volts at 3 amps) for the quickest charging.

Which JBL Flip 6 Charger Type Works Best?

We successfully recharge the JBL Flip 6 Bluetooth speaker with the chargers, below. Note that a few of these have 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 6.  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 6 BT Speaker

This group of chargers can refresh the JBL Flip 6 at the max power that the speaker accepts (15 watts).  Plus all of these are affordable, although for most of them, you will need a USB-C to USB-C cable to connect each charger to the speaker.

USB-A Chargers that Also Work Well with the JBL Flip 6

1. Gearmo Ten Port USB Charging Station

This hefty household wall charging station delivers all the current you need for charging your Flip 5.  It delivers full USB 2 power on each and every one of its ten output ports.  This means that you won’t increase the speaker charging time when you charge more than one device on it. In fact, this charging station supplies enough juice to recharge all models in the JBL Flip line of portable Bluetooth speakers, and you can charged them all at the same time to boot. Find this useful USB accessory here at Amazon.com.  We also reviewed this charging station here.

But this charger outputs a little less than the optimal charging current for the Flip 6.  So with it, you may notice slightly longer charging times.  But still, this is quite the useful charging station for devices like this speaker.

2. CE Tech 4 Port USB Wall Charger 

This CE Tech charging station is another beefy unit, well suited for recharging most JBL Flip speakers in the shortest time possible.  This well built USB power hub is available occasionally on eBay for under thirty US dollars.  We’ve also reviewed this quad port charging system here.

Note that like the power station above, this wall charger supports neither QC 3.0 nor USB PD.  So again, it will charge the Flip 6 more slowly.  But not too much slower… perhaps an hour or two longer to full charge.

3. GE Jasco Y14 11307 USB Wall Charger

This charger is available at Amazon.com.  See an equivalent charger’s product page at Walmart.com, here.   At less than twelve dollars, this dual port AC USB wall adapter, with its folding plug prongs, is small enough to fit in any mobile device accessory travel kit.  It’s also great when you take your speaker on vacation, because it features a night light.  Makes finding your way around strange hotel rooms a cinch.  See our   GE Jasco 2.1 Amp USB Charger, Y14 Review   post for more details on this affordable and practical JBL Flip 4 USB charger solution.

Once again, like the others above, this charger will recharge the speaker a little more slowly due to its max current output being less than 3 amps (it’s 2.1 amps).

4. JBL Charger for the JBL Flip 6

Finally, some JBL speakers come with this JBL AC adapter included.  We find that while this wall charger does not come with the Flip 6, it charges the speaker fairly well just the same, albeit a slower than the USB-C chargers above.  See our JBL USB AC Charger Adapter Specs for further details.

So, we hope this short list of compatible AC USB adapters helps you choose a suitable charger for your JBL Flip 6 wireless speaker.
