Why won't it work without the battery.
My JBL Charge 3 battery has been bad for quite a while, and just recently it began to swell. The swelling made the cover breech. So I find your web page and I removed the battery and attempted to find a new one. A new battery with postage is almost expensive as buying a whole new charge 3. So with that in mind I chose to just plug in the charger and run it off the charger without the battery it will not run off the charger. I threw away the battery well actually I left it at batteries plus so they would properly dispose of it. I kept the harness off the battery thinking that I would just have to twist the right wires together to make it run again with the charger. Any inside on this would be appreciated thank you.
