Why is my Marshall speaker not charging?
One of the issues that you might experience with Marshall Stockwell II Bluetooth speakers is when it won’t charge. This can be an annoying experience especially if the battery life is already low.
Here’s what you need to do to fix the charging issues on your portable Bluetooth speaker.
Solution 1: Check the charging port, USB charging cable, and charger of your Marshall Stockwell II
If you’re facing issues with charging your Marshall Stockwell II speaker, don’t panic. The first step is to check the three critical components required for charging. These are the charging port, USB-C cable, and charger.

Unlike some other Bluetooth speakers, the Stockwell II model doesn’t come with a charger, so you’ll need to provide one. Thankfully, you can use your smartphone charger to power up your speaker. You can also charge the speaker from a USB power source like your computer or power bank. It’s much better if you use a charger with a rated output of 3A.

- Once connected to the power source, the indicator light on the top of the speaker will turn on to let you know that it’s charging.
