JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker gets bigger sound better battery life USBC

first_img JBL Flip The new JBL Flip 5 in front of the Flip 4. It’s really only a little bigger than its predecessor. David Carnoy/CNET Lay the JBL Flip 5 next to last year’s Flip 4 like I did at this year’s CES in Las Vegas and you’ll notice that the Flip 5 looks pretty similar but is slightly bigger than its predecessor. That increased size has allowed JBL’s engineers to equip the Flip 5 with a larger battery and more power so that it delivers a little bigger sound. It also now has USB-C charging for quicker battery charging. Like its predecessor, the JBL Flip 5 is fully waterproof, has a buillt-in microphone for speakerphone calls and comes in multiple color options. It’ll ship this spring for $100 and should gradually come down in price over the course of the year.I’ll have a full review shortly before it hits stores. jbl-flip-5-colorsEnlarge ImageAll the new color options.
