Please be advised that the Bose support website has a firmware update that fixes some battery issues. I took my dead - non-charging Soundlink Color II apart and then found the website and fixed the issue with the firmware update! The update website is located @ http://btu.bose.com

Beware that, after the battery gets undervolted (like 2.4V), the device does not seem to accept an externally charged battery and continues to act dead, until it finds some form of comfort over its USB input. Not from a dumb 5V power supply, but from an USB charger or PC supporting some level of power delivery extension, and an appropriately wired lead.
