The Source: JBL 10W Charge Bluetooth Speaker Was $160 | Now $89.99
The Source has yet again discounted the JBL Charge 10W Bluetooth Stereo Speaker with Built-In Bass Port for just $89.99, originally $160. This was one of the Black Friday door-crasher deals at The Source, so it is nice to see it making a comeback.
I price compared the JBL Bluetooth speaker with Best Buy Canada where it was on sale for $129.99 and is now sold out. They listed the original price of the JBL speaker, model number JBLCHARGEBLKAM, as $199.99 (thus $70 off). This is quite obviously a markup to make the discount look better at Best Buy than it really was. I also found the same JBL 10W unit (in black) at Amazon Canada for $112.99. It is important to use model numbers when price comparing as different models or years may look very similar.
This speaker has a high-capacity 6000mAh Lithium-Ion battery for up to 12 hours of playback time on a single charge. You can also use this power bank to charge your MP3 player, smart phone, or other devices while on the go. There is a built-in USB port to accommodate any charging cable.
The speaker itself features dual stereo speakers with 10W total output power and a built-in bass port. The unit sounds very good according to reviews:
I just got mine today and I love it so much I haven't stopped using it! It gets so loud and it's so clear! For the price it's way better than Jambox mini or even the Beats Pill. Pill killer for sure! Must have for portable music lovers!!!
Connect your device to the JBL speaker wirelessly with Bluetooth. The only negative appears to be that the speaker does not work with laptops. I never use my external speaker system with my laptop, so that is not a deal killer for me. This JBL 10W speaker is meant to be ultra-portable so I would see pairing it with my cell phone most often.
I am excited this deal has made a comeback. When this was a door crasher for Black Friday, Mooser Stephanie decided to pick one up. She said:
Just ordered the JBL charge speaker on sale. I can’t wait to get it. I’ve heard the sound out of this thing and it’s fantastic!
I hope the speaker is everything you wanted! The Source Canada is currently offering free shipping on orders of $25 or more, thus this speaker will ship for free.
