Sumit Chauhan from Harman India told that this speaker is going to last for long hours and will prove to be a milestone in future for Bluetooth Speakers in India.
With a weight of 5.25 kg this is one heavy speaker. Not sure how portable it would be, given it’s heavy weight but as this is a Bluetooth speaker, definitely it gives speaker a portability in terms of connectivity.
The powerful 20,000 mAh battery is the USP of this product. JBL claims to have a battery life of 24 hrs. Even if it lasts for more than 12+ hrs, it would be a great product in itself.
20,000 mAh battery and 5.25 kg weight – dauntingly large speaker.
The charging time for this speaker is around 6.5 hrs. Given it’s outrageously 20,000 mAh battery, 6.5 hours is quite impressive time to charge it from 0 to 100%.
With dual charge option, you can charge other devices at the same time, while you are listening music from it. So, not only it is a Bluetooth speaker that can last long, but it will also serve the purpose of a powerbank to charge other devices.
IPX7 makes it waterproof. It can withstand extreme weather conditions and you can take it easily to pool side or river side without worrying about the water splashes on it.
Like most of the previous JBL speakers, this too has the JBL Connect + option, which means you can easily connect 100+ JBL speakers with it at the same time.
The speaker is bass heavy and not to mention, this is one loud speaker. It has two bass radiators and four active transducers, which produces extraordinarily loud sound.
