Should You Charge a Bluetooth Speaker With a Mobile Charger?[Answered]

The life of any party or long trip is a pair of Bluetooth speakers. A dynamic speaker not only makes the event lively but also adds personality to the experience.

With Bluetooth speakers becoming more and more popular, people are looking for ways to charge them on the go. Some people have wondered if it is possible to use a mobile charger to charge a Bluetooth speaker.

The answer is yes you can charge your Bluetooth speaker with your mobile charger if both of them share the same charging pin and has the same voltage requirements.

This means if the charger meets the power requirements and fits perfectly into the Bluetooth speaker you can use it without any problem.

In this blog post, we will discuss the things that you need to check before you charge your Bluetooth speaker with your mobile charger.



First, you need to check the voltage requirements of your Bluetooth speaker. You can find this information in the Bluetooth speaker’s manual or on the manufacturer’s website.

Then compare it to the charger that you want to use. The mobile charger should have the same voltage or slightly higher voltage output.

If they don’t match, it is not recommended to use it to avoid any damage to the speaker.

Since most Bluetooth speakers and mobile chargers require a voltage of around five volts, in most cases, you can use a mobile charger to charge your Bluetooth speaker.


The next thing you need to check is the amperage. Amperage is the amount of electrical current flowing through a circuit. Most Bluetooth speakers usually require an amperage of around one or two amp.

You can also find this information in the Bluetooth speaker’s manual or on the manufacturer’s website.

Now repeat the above steps and see if the charger is able to supply the required amperage needed by the speaker. You can find the amperage output of the charger on the charger itself or in the manual.

It is a good practice to verify the power output of the charger before you use it. Because using a charger with low power rating than what the speaker requires can delay charging and using a higher one can damage the speaker or burnt the charging port.

Charging pin

The next thing you need to check is the charging pin. Bluetooth speakers usually use a micro-USB charging port.

Since most mobile chargers come with a micro-USB charging port. You can use them to charge your Bluetooth speaker without any problem

However, if you find yourself using a lot of force to plug in the charger, it is a good idea to stop because this can damage the port completely.

How to check if the Bluetooth speaker is charging?

If you want to check if your Bluetooth speaker is charging or not, you can do a simple test. First, turn off the speaker.

Then plug in the charger and check if the charging indicator light on the Bluetooth speaker turns on. If it does, then your Bluetooth speaker is charging.

If the indicator stays turned off when the speaker is connected to an AC outlet this means either the battery is fully charged depending on the model or there is a problem with the charging port or charger.

Can a phone charger charge a Bluetooth speaker?

Yes, a phone charger is perfectly capable of charging a Bluetooth speaker. In fact, most Bluetooth speakers use a micro-USB charging port which is the same charging port found on most Android phones.

This will make it more convenient for you because you won’t need to carry around multiple chargers at once.


I hope you found this article helpful and that you now know that it is perfectly fine to use a mobile charger to charge your Bluetooth speaker.

All in all Electronic devices require a charger with the same port/interface and the corresponding power ratings. They can be powered by an AC source.

You can dependably use a mobile charger for charging if it meets all the Bluetooth speaker’s power requirements.
