Not wanting to be left out of the party at IFA 2018, JBL has introduced the latest bluetooth speaker, the Charge 4.
Information is scarce but here’s what we know for the moment. The Charge 4 is a bluetooth speaker that’s s able to connect two devices at once. Like it’s previous iteration (Charge 3), the Charge 4 is rated as IPX7 (Waterproof), so take to the pool or to the shower, it won’t be a problem.
Multiroom playback is supported with up to 100 speakers using JBL Connect+. Charging is via a USB-C port, an inevitable trend that we foresee happening to more and more devices. Speaking of charging, battery (7500mAh) is touted to last 20 hours per full charge and the Charge 4 – like the Charge 3 – also acts like a powerbank. Available colours are Desert Sand, Mustard Yellow, Dusty Pink, Grey Stone, River Teal, Fiesta Red, Ocean Blue, Midnight Black, Steel White, and Forest Green.
Price and Availability
The Charge 4 is priced at USD$205 (RM843) and will be available in October 2018.
We suspect JBL Malaysia to bring it in, but we don’t know when. Stay tuned to jumpadevice for future updates.
