If you are using a JBL speaker and have misplaced the USB-C or USB-A cable, here are some replacement JBL speaker charger cords which you can use. Which cable you use depends on the model of your JBL speaker, so for example, the latest JBL speaker models will use USB-C charging cables which provide a much faster charge than USB-A. The much older JBL speaker versions such as the Clip 2 or the Flip 3 use micro-USB cables. Do note that if you are using the JBL Boombox speaker models, you need to use a dedicated replacement AC power adapter which we recommend below. For a complete guide on which replacement cord to use to charge your JBL speaker, refer to our list below.

Here are the replacement JBL charger cords you can use depending on which speaker model you have. These charger cords correspond to the voltage used for the JBL speaker model and some of them come with power adapters if you are using a larger JBL speaker such as the Boombox or Xtreme models.
JBL Boombox 3: 19V Fast Charger for JBL Boombox 3
The JBL Boombox 3 uses a dedicated AC power adapter for charging and we recommend using a DC 19V 65W charger which makes it compatible with the standard JBL Boombox 3 charger. This charger is made with ABS and PC flame-resistant plastic for protection, and provides stable charging with an anti-interference magnetic ring to prevent electromagnetic interference. All you have to do is to plug in the power adapter with the JBL Boombox 3 and the speaker will start charging as per normal.
During the charging process, the JBL Boombox 3 will display its charging status via the battery status lamps on the unit. These lights indicate the progress of the charge, lighting up in succession as the battery charges. Please do not attempt to charge the JBL Boombox 3 via USB input as this will damage the speaker battery – you should only use the appropriate AC power adapter.
Boombox 1 and 2: 19V Boombox Charger for Boombox 1 and 2
Like the JBL Boombox 3, the JBL Boombox 2 and Boombox 1 use a dedicated AC power adapter to charge the speaker, although it uses a 5.5 x 2.5mm connector rather than a figure 8 cable that the Boombox 3 uses. This would be a similar 19V 90W power adapter that will charge the JBL Boombox 2 or Boombox 1 speaker quickly. This JBL Speaker charger uses a 5.5 x 2.5mm connector with an AC/DC adapter. This replacement cord works exactly like the JBL Charger and provides the right amount of power for the Boombox 2 or Boombox 1 speakers.
The Boombox 2 features an LED battery bar that shows the current charge level, with each LED representing 20% of the total battery capacity. As the speaker charges, these LEDs will light up in succession. A fully lit LED bar indicates that the battery is fully charged (it typically takes 6.5 hours to reach a full charge).
JBL Xtreme 3: 65W USB Type-C Charger
The JBL Xtreme 3 speaker uses a USB Type-C charger to charge the speaker, however you will also need an adapter to charge the speaker otherwise the Xtreme 3 speaker will not charge quickly (if you just plug the USB-C into a standard USB port). This 20V 65W replacement USB Type-C charger comes with a power adapter that can quickly charge up your JBL Xtreme 3 speaker to a full charge in a couple of hours. Please note that you cannot simply get a USB to USB-C cable to charge the speaker as you will need an adapter for the USB-C port. We do not recommend plugging the JBL Xtreme 3’s USB port cable into your computer’s USB output because the output power will be too low to charge the speaker. You will need a dedicated power adapter for this purpose.
When the speaker is charging, you can observe the battery charge level through the LED strip on the lower front of the speaker. This strip consists of lights that indicate the current battery charge level, with each segment representing a certain percentage of the battery capacity. As the speaker charges, you might notice the lower part of the meter bar flashing white and gradually progressing upwards as the battery fills. When the entire light bar is solid white, it indicates the speaker is nearing a full charge. Once the battery is fully charged, all the LEDs will turn off.
One interesting thing about the JBL Xtreme 3 is that you can play music on this speaker while it is charging, and its audio output may be slightly louder when connected to AC power which is an added plus.
JBL Xtreme 2 and Xtreme 1: Replacement 19V 65W JBL Xtreme 2 Charger
The JBL Xtreme 2 and Xtreme 1 speakers use a 5.5mm x 2.5mm power connector together with an adapter to charge the speaker. We recommend a 19V 65W DC/AC converter together with the power connector to quickly charge up the Xtreme 2 and Xtreme 1 speakers. Do note that the JBL Xtreme 2 and Xtreme 1 do not use USB or USB-C connections, and you will need the standard AC adapter with AC power cord.
Once connected with the power port on the Xtreme 2 or Xtreme 1, you’ll notice the battery status LEDs lighting up, indicating that the speaker is in the process of charging. These LEDs will change color or turn off completely once the speaker is fully charged. It typically takes around 4-5 hours for the Xtreme 2 to reach a full charge when connected to AC power.
JBL Charge 5 and Charge 4: USB Power Charger Cable Cord for Charge 5 and 4
The good thing about the JBL Charge 5 and Charge 4 is that both speakers use the latest USB-C cable for charging. We highly recommend getting a replacement USB power charger with USB-C port to charge your Charge 5 and Charge 4 speakers as this would allow the speakers to be recharged quickly. This USB power adapter supports double sided plugging which allows you to easily connect the USB-C and the adapter into a AC power outlet. This replacement chord works really well with the JBL Charge speaker series and we highly recommend them.
When the JBL Charge 5 is connected to power, its battery level indicator which is located just below the JBL logo on the front will show the charging status. This indicator is a vertical line that lights up, displaying the battery’s current charge level. The line will flash while the speaker is actively charging and become solid when the charge is complete. It takes approximately 4 hours to reach a full charge when charging via USB-C.
JBL Charge 3, Charge 2 and Charge 1: Replacement USB Charging Cable Cord for Charge 3 and 2
The JBL Charge 3, Charge 2 and Charge 1 speakers use a micro USB cable together with an adapter to charge the speaker. This speaker charger comes with a thicker tinned copper core with lower wire resistance to reach 3A of input current and deliver a quick charge for the older generation JBL speakers. It comes with a charger plug and one charger cord which you can use to directly charge the speaker (you can also use this micro-USB cable to charge your smartphones if required).
When the speaker is connected to power, the LED indicator light on the front will turn on, showing that the speaker is charging. The Charge 3 speaker is fully charged when the LED indicator light turns off. After charging, disconnect the cable and replace the rubber cover on the port.
JBL Flip 6 and Flip 5: USB Type C Charger Cable Cord
The JBL Flip 6 and Flip 5 speakers use a standard USB to USB-C cable charger for charging. Because the Flip 6 and Flip 5 speakers are not as massive as the Charge or Xtreme speaker series, you can simply plug in the USB cable into a power outlet or your computer to charge the speaker. This durable charging cable supports a maximum of 3A current and works as a perfect replacement for your JBL speaker charger. This cable is also made from high-quality PVC flame resistant materials and provides good conductivity to quickly charge your speakers.
A recommended adapter should be capable of delivering 15 watts (5 volts at 3 amps) for optimal charging times. Using a USB-C power supply that supports USB PD (Power Delivery) or QC 3.0 (Quick Charge 3.0) can also speed up the charging process. The Flip 6 takes approximately 2.5 to 3 hours to fully charge. While charging the speaker, a part of the battery bar gauge on the speaker will light up which indicates that the speaker is charging.
JBL Flip 4, 3 and 2: Replacement Micro USB Faster Charger Cable
If you are using the older versions of the JBL Flip series speakers such as the Flip 4, Flip 3 and Flip 2, we highly recommend this replacement micro-USB cable which can quickly charge up your Flip speakers. This cable comes with silver plated metal connectors together with bare copper conductors that provide faster charging speed. The micro USB cable is also capable of charging your device from any power source including your PC, laptop, USB wall charger outlet or USB car charger, which makes it a very versatile option to charge your JBL Flip speaker.
Open the port cover on the Flip 4 speaker to reveal the micro USB charging port. Connect the small end of the orange micro USB charge cord to the speaker and the other end to your power adapter. The JBL Flip 4 has a battery status gauge with lights that illuminate in succession as the battery charges. The charging is complete when all the lights are solid, and the last one stops blinking (which usually takes between 3-4 hours to reach a full charge).
JBL Clip 4: Fast Charger Cord USB Type C Cable
The JBL Clip 4 currently uses a USB to USB-C cable and can be easily charged by plugging it into any power source such as your laptop or power bank. This charging cable comes with a high-quality PVC sheath which provides better durability and convenience, and is also relatively lightweight to carry around. The cable is also 5 feet long which provides enough length to charge the Clip 4 speaker from any power source that supports USB ports.
When you connect the speaker to the power source, a status light will light up solid red which indicates that charging is in progress. The Clip 4 speaker does not have a battery status gauge that shows the percentage of charge, so the only indication of the charging progress is the red light. Charging is complete when this light turns off.
JBL Go 3: Charger Cord Cable USB-C Power Cord
The JBL Go 3, like the JBL Clip 4, also uses a USB to USB-C power cord for quick charging. This durable charging cord supports a maximum 2A current and supports USB 2.0 for quick charging. The cable is also 5 feet in length which makes it very convenient to connect to any power source. This speaker cable is durable with good conductivity and can charge up your JBL Go 3 speaker in no time.
To charge the speaker, first find the USB-C port, which is located on the left side panel of the speaker beside the carrying loop. You can charge the speaker while it is on or off, though turning it off may speed up the charging process especially with lower current chargers. Next, plug one end of the USB-C cable into the speaker and the other end into your charger adapter.
The speaker has a status lamp that lights up solid red when it receives power from the adapter which indicates that charging is in progress.
JBL Clip 3, 2 and Go 2: Replacement Micro USB Charger Cord Cable
The JBL Clip 3, Clip 2 and Go 2 are older versions of the Clip and Go speaker series and use micro-USB chargers. We recommend this replacement micro USB charger cord which is compatible with USB port chargers, wall chargers and your laptop or PC. This allows you to charge your JBL speaker with a wall charger or multi-port USB charger on the go. The cable is made from PVC material which provides good protection over your cable. The entire cable is 5 feet length which is the industry standard and connects to any power source that supports USB.
To charge the JBL Clip 3, locate the micro USB charging port on your JBL Clip 3 which is protected under a waterproof seal port cover. You can open this cover using a small tool like a penny or a dime and then connect the micro-USB cable to the speaker. When the speaker starts charging, a solid red status lamp will light up. This red light indicates that the charging process is underway and the battery is fully charged when the red light turns off.
