      Answer

      If the Nano has bluetooth, then yes, it can connect through bluetooth. If the Nano does not have bluetooth, the answer is still yes. You can use an audio cable to plug it into the aux input. Keep in mind if you use it this way, it will not be waterproof. And the sound quality will be slightly less because it is analog. Hope this helps.

        Answer

        To keep the battery healthy, it is not advisable to drain the battery before charging it. Small, frequent charges are better than charging it 0-100% at a time.

      Probably a stupid question, but is this the new Charge 3 speaker? The name listed just says "Charge", but the specs match the Charge 3, so I just want to confirm. Thanks!   (2 Answers)

          Answer

          The CHARGE 3 is definitely louder, and generally more powerful, also provides more bass. It has 2 x 10W of power, a 6000mAH battery that can last up to 20 hours of non-stop playing, and it is an IPX7 waterproof certified. While the FLIP 3 has 2x 8W of power, a 3000mAH battery that can last up to 10 hours of play time and IPx4 Splash-proof certification.

          Answer

          This product is actually the Charge 3. Best Buy, for whatever reason, is incorrectly listing it as the "Charge". So, to follow-up on JBL's answer...YES-you can use Connect to pair this with other connect-enabled devices.

              Certainly. The CHARGE comes with factory charge and can be used right out of the box. There is no need to do initial charging before using it.

              Answer

              Pretty comparable! Both have great sound and bass, both are easy to set up with Bluetooth. I have no complaints with my JBL, I think you're just paying extra for the "Dre" and "Beats" name.
