How Long Does it Take to Charge Jlab Earbuds/Headphones?


As the world continues to move further and further away from wires and physical connections with technology, batteries, and their charge become more and more important. If you have a pair of JLAB headphones that function via Bluetooth, you have a limited amount of time before they need to be recharged.

Thankfully, it’s also quite simple to recharge those devices as needed.

How long it takes for your JLAB headphones & earbuds to fully recharge from no power depends on the model, but generally speaking, it is around two to three hours.

Recharging your JLAB headphones is pretty easy but we’ll still go over it down below.

There are many models of JLAB headphones out there, and naturally, they don’t all have the same specifications. This means there is no universal charging time that applies to all JLAB headphones. Because they all have different battery capacities, they also have different required charging times.

Obviously, the more battery capacity your headphones have, the longer it will take to charge them from empty to 100%. However, that is not the only factor to take into consideration, as it also depends on the strength of your USB cord and your power source. Some cords may not transfer energy as well as others, thus slowing the charging process.

As for power sources, plugging your headphones into a wall will almost always charge them faster than plugging them into your computer or a similar platform. Generally speaking, charging your headphones from empty to 100% should take about two or three hours.

Determining When to Charge

As always, different models of headphones function a little differently. But because they are all made by the same company, most JLAB headphones follow particular design choices. Some of the models have a voice system that will verbally tell you when your headphones need to be charged. Others might have a solid or flashing red light.

Of course, if your headphones stop working suddenly and the cause isn’t damage or disconnection, they probably need to be charged in that case as well.

That said, those signs will only be provided to you if your battery gets quite low or nearly dead. If you’d like to avoid that, as well as avoid full-length recharging times, we recommend charging your headphones whenever possible if they are not in use. That way you never have to go without music for a long period of time.

The Simple Charging Process

Thankfully, it’s not particularly difficult to charge your JLAB headphones when the time comes to do that. They usually come with a micro USB charging cable when you buy them. Such cords have a USB plug on one side and a micro USB plug on the other side, the latter of which will plug into a port on your headphones.

Once that’s done, you can pretty much plug your headphones into any USB port for power. This can include an adapter for a wall outlet, or just the USB port on your computer. So long as the power source being used is adequate, that’s all that matters.

In order to ensure that your headphones are actually charging, look for a light on them. Solid red usually means the JLAB headphones are charging, and when they are fully charged, that light is usually solid blue. 

Charging Issues

If you notice issues with your headphones charging, there are many potential causes. First, you should make sure everything is connected properly. If the USB cord is loose, damaged, or not properly plugged into the headphones or the charging port, it might charge inefficiently or not at all.

Also, keep in mind that batteries have a limited lifespan even when you take care of them. When you first buy your JLAB headphones, they may last six hours on a single charge, but as the months and years go by, they may only last four or three.

This is completely normal and there’s no way to avoid it. All batteries lose some of their longevity over time, no matter how frequently or infrequently you charge them.

That’s also why you should take into consideration the maximum battery life of whatever JLAB headphones you want to buy: whatever their full capacity is when you first buy them, it will gradually decrease from there. Buying headphones with a higher starting capacity will serve you well in the long run.

Summary

Well, that’s all there is to it! Charging your JLAB headphones is simple and easy, and generally doesn’t take more than two or three hours, though it depends on your cord and the power source you are using.

Our best advice is to let your headphones charge whenever you are not using them if you can. That way you never have to go through a musical drought while they are charging!
