HARMAN has launched the JBL GO+ Bluetooth speaker in India on Flipkart at an initial price of Rs 1799/-. The speaker features a number of upgrades over the popular JBL GO. For instance, according to JBL, the battery capacity is 20% higher, which might lead to longer durations of music playback but can also make it slightly heavier. According to the official JBL India website, the GO+ features a 730mAh battery, which is about 130mAh (or 20%, as mentioned earlier) bigger than the JBL GO's 600mAh battery. However, both claim a battery life of 5 hours. Also according to the official website, the JBL GO+ also takes one hour longer to charge from zero power to full as compared to the JBL GO and is also about 80g heavier.
