The JBL Flip 5 is a popular portable Bluetooth speaker that provides high-quality sound and a long-lasting battery life. However, like all rechargeable devices, you will eventually need to recharge its battery. In this guide, we will show you how to recharge the JBL Flip 5 safely and quickly.
Firstly, let’s take a look at the battery indicator located on the speaker. When you press one of the buttons on the side of the speaker, the battery indicator will turn on. If only the low end of the indicator is illuminated, this means that the battery is 20% or less charged and needs to be recharged.
To recharge the JBL Flip 5, you will need the original cable that came with the speaker. One end of the cable has a USB Type-C connector, and the other end has a regular USB Type-A connector. You will also need a charging cube or another way of supplying power.
Before using a charging cube, make sure that its output is 5 volts and that it can supply at least 3 amps. If you use a charger that cannot supply enough power, the speaker will work hard to pull the power, which can damage the cable or the charging port.
To start the charging process, connect the USB Type-C end of the cable to the charging port on the JBL Flip 5. Then connect the USB Type-A end to the charging cube or power source. The LED strip on the speaker will start blinking, indicating that it is charging. The fuller the bar on the LED strip, the more full the battery is.
It takes up to 2.5 hours for the JBL Flip 5 to fully charge with a 3-amp charger. If you use a 1-amp charger, it will take a lot longer. Once the battery is fully charged, all the bars will be full and the LED strip will stop blinking.
The JBL Flip 5 can be used while it is being charged, which is a useful feature. Once the battery is fully charged, you can unplug the speaker and keep using it.
In conclusion, the JBL Flip 5 has a long-lasting battery life and can be recharged safely and quickly with the original cable and a charging cube that can supply at least 3 amps. It is essential to use a charging cube that can supply enough power to avoid damaging the cable or the charging port.
