The JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker for Nokia is currently riding high in our poll on Nokia wireless charging accessories. Question is, after a year on the market, is it getting equally showered with love elsewhere? We checked out what the web’s tech community is saying, and the answer seems to be yes. Read on to find out why you, too, should be besotted with the JBL PowerUp speaker – in the unlikely case that you aren’t already!
“The real advantage of purchasing this over other speakers is the Qi charging capability. It is great to set your Lumia 920 on top and listen to music while your device charges up.”
“One of my favourite things to do is use the volume control buttons on my phone (from my pocket) to adjust the volume on the PowerUp. This is really convenient if someone walks into the room and you need to engage them in conversation.”
“The PowerUp was more than capable of filling up my entire living room with sound.”

“This speaker is totally worth it… Not only because it offers you the opportunity to utilize the connectivity of your device completely, but also because the PowerUp speaker sounds just great.”
“It’s very easy to use, and on top of that it delivers remarkably punchy sound for a unit this size.”
PC & Tech Authority
“If you use a Lumia 920 or other similarly-equipped smartphone, the PowerUp is a no-brainer. This is a beautiful, high-quality speaker, and it’s highly recommended.”
