Portable speakers JBL Charge 2

I ordered in the Internet-shop «Joom» portable Bluetooth-column «Charge 2», allegedly from the firm JBL. The offer on the website «Joom» you entered only the name of the model «Charge 2», without specifying the manufacturer. On Aliexpress you can buy the original here for about the same money.

On one of the photos in the online store, the column was exposed to the backdrop of cardboard boxes, similar to the original, with the name of the model, but no manufacturer.

The seller of the speakers was the supplier «IKAI Electric», with rating of 4.6. In the proposal it was stated that there is a small size, cost about 1300 rubles, and large size, price — 1521 ruble. I chose a large.

Currently, the website removed the model name «Charge 2», just says portable Bluetooth speaker, however, typing in a search engine «column JBL», You will still find this column.

The deadline for the delivery of Internet-shop in the city of Nevinnomyssk, Stavropol territory, was exhibited on October 30, 2018. The parcel was tracked until 18 October 2018, the latest location — customs of the Russian Federation. And here October 29, 2018, in the mailbox put the notice on the parcel on the same day, I took her to the nearest post office.
