The new Charge 4 is slightly bigger by roughly a centimeter in every way, but it’s also heavier by 165 grams (7.05 ounces). While that obviously isn’t a huge deal, it’s not good news if you were relying on the portability of the speaker.

It looks similar to the Charge 3 a mid-size portable speaker with styling similar to Ultimate Ears’ Boom range. But unlike the Boom 3, this speaker sits on its side. Whereas Ultimate Ears has simplified its designs, JBL has kept the Charge4′s chunky passive radiator at each end.

On top of the speaker you’ll find all of the speaker’s physical controls. This includes , buttons for power, volume, Bluetooth pairing, media control, and JBL’s Connect + feature, which lets you pair two or more of the company’s other speakers to play in stereo or to amplify music.

The JBL Charge 4 is a directional speaker, so sound comes from the side with the JBL emblem. This may be disappointing to those looking for 360-degree sound but the speaker gets so loud that everyone can hear the music in a room.

The JBL Charge 4 is hardy all-round, There’s a chunky rubber foot on the bottom and the front and back are covered with a rugged fabric. As long as the chunky connection port cover on the back is sealed, Water resistance doesn’t get much better.

Its high-capacity 7500mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery provides up to 20 hours of playtime. The speaker carries a convenient USB charge out to quickly charge your devices, such as your smartphone, so you will never run out of power again. The Charge 4 features a rugged design, IPX7 waterproof rated exterior and comes in a suite of cool colors.
