Thank you for your inquiry about the USB port on our earlier G-BOOM models. There was a recent update to the current production of our G-BOOM speaker in which the USB charging port has been removed. The earlier G-BOOM models did feature a USB port that could be used for charging external devices, however it was only active while G-BOOM was plugged into a power source and did not work while G-BOOM was on battery power, which was a frustration for customers. In addition, the output power of the standard USB port was limited and not meeting the power demands for lots of the newer phones and larger tablets out there today. Due to these reasons, it has been removed.
