The JBL Charge 3 is the follow up to the popular JBL Charge 2 Plus midsize portable Bluetooth speaker.
For a midsize Bluetooth speaker, the JBL Charge 3 is priced very competitively. Similar offerings from Beats, Bose, and UE are all undercut significantly by the Charge 3 manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
The JBL Charge series sits comfortably between the JBL Flip series and the JBL Xtreme series. It represents the best of both of these speakers – it’s smaller, more portable, and cheaper than the Xtreme, but louder and with longer battery life than the Flip.
