The JBL On Beat Micro is a compact speaker with an impressive amount of volume. Using a digital signal processor, this speaker allows you to turn up your favourite songs without distortion. iPods and iPhones can connect via a lightning connector on the top and a USB port supports playback from flash drives and MP3 players. When operating from the mains you can charge your device via the USB port as well. No more power problems, just great sounds.

Does the speaker use batteries and how long do they last?
You can achieve up to 5 hours playback from 4 AAA batteries or you can power the speaker via the supplied mains adaptor. Devices can charge from the USB port when the speaker is plugged into the mains so you’ll never have to worry about your iPod running out of charge in the middle of a party.

What devices are compatible with the speaker?
A lightning connector on the speaker supports a range of iPods and iPhones and for devices such as tablets, MP3 players and laptops, a 3.5 mm jack cable is supplied to connect these to the JBL On Beat Micro.

How loud is this speaker?
Two full range transducers rated at 2W each drive a powerful sound from the speaker. Bass tones will bounce with deep and rich production whilst maintaining a vibrant high pitch range. A frequency response of 110Hz to 20kHz ensures a fantastic sound stage for any genre you decide to listen to.

This seems a bit misleading a Maplin technition has just told me that it will charge any iphone - and I specifically asked about 5s and 6S - this review page indicates it will not recharge the 6S ! How do I find out if it charges both?

Asked by: Rich
As both of these phones have a lightning port, they will work with this product.
