The JBL Charge 5 Bluetooth speaker can go anywhere and play for up to 20 hours


JBL has introduced the latest member of its leading Bluetooth speaker family – the JBL Charge 5 – which lets you take your music anywhere thanks to its waterproof and dustproof design.

The JBL Charge 5 offers the company’s trademark Original Pro Sound through the iconic racetrack-shaped driver, separate tweeter and dual passive radiators.

You’ll hear impressive clarity and a satisfying deep bass.

The JBL Charge 5 has an IPX67 rating so it can handle being submerged in water and will still be able to play your favourite music.

With this rugged design, the Charge 5 can go wherever you want whether it’s the beach or the bush.

“Whether listening at home or outdoors, the JBL Charge 5 sets a new standard for high-quality sound,” said Marcus Fry, General Manager of JBL AUNZ.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the next generation of our popular line-up and are beyond excited to offer listeners the unmatched power of JBL Original Pro Sound.”

The onboard rechargeable battery provides an impressive 20 hours of playback and users are also able to charge up their mobile devices through the onboard USB port.

JBL PartyBoost is also onboard and this allows users to connect the Charge 5 to other compatible JBL portable speakers to pump up the sound.

It’s also possible to pair two smartphones or tablets to the speaker at the same time so you and friend can take turns enjoying their favourite songs through the speaker’s impressive sound.

The JBL Charge 5 Bluetooth portable speaker is available now and is priced at $229.95.
