While holding the cover back, pull straight up on the battery to remove it.

Before you purchase a battery call Bose and speak to a technician . I thought I needed a battery but the tech instructed me what to do and now my battery is charging again.

Leonardo Sedillo -

What did he tell you to do?

australianperson - Reply

Yeah, what did he tell you to do? My battery is always telling me it's 30% charged or 40% charged even after it's been plugged in and not used for over 12 hours.

Go to the Bose updater webpage. install the software and plug in the speaker to your computer. it will update your speaker and hopefully fix some battery bugs. Worked for me for a little bit but now I'm back to flashing red light and looking for a replacement battery.

soundlink will not hold a charge. if speaker sits around 4 a while u have 2 recharge it again. dont think it should do that. bose was no help! if some 1 has a solution?

You can actually open that battery pack up when you are careful. The glue is not very strong. There are 2 x 18650 batteries in there. I'll replace mine once I get the new ones and see if it worked. I ordered 2 Samsung from Amazon for $15. check out the picture.

Wolfgang, did replacing the batteries work?

Nick Hinckley -

Hi Wolfgang, did you get your soundlink mini to work after you replaced the batterys, also there are 3 wires red,black and green, where did the green wire go and do you need it thanks?

Peter wreford-bush -

Wolfgang are you there ?

krzysztof marfjak -

how does it worked with the replacement; was it difficult? on another page i read something about needing solder tails for the batteries and that there is a lot of glue and residues on board.

is it right that bose replace batteries after calling service? does anyone know how much this cost?

I tried many things, but was unable to charge my battery. Then, while attempting to download the new software, I followed the instruction to have the unit attached to the base charger AND then attache the unit to the computer using a USB and a second connector to the side charging slot. Now the battery is charging!

If u have problem on charging the battery, reset the system by pressing the center button fir 10secs and then release it. Then continue to re-charge it using the cable and charger provided with the system. Tony Lopez

I don't know if this will help anyone, but I was having trouble with my Soundlink Mini (version 1) running for anywhere between 5 and 45 minutes before suddenly turning off and not being able to turn back on for an indeterminate amount of time. No amount of product resetting or letting the battery die and recharge worked, but after I followed this guide and simply took the battery out and put it back in, my speaker is working perfectly now.

I guess this is the equivalent of unplugging it and plugging it back in.

I got a replacement battery for Bose SOUNDLINK Mini fromebay, it works great! here is the link:

And it also has battery for SOUNDLINK I II III...

Opening the battery case is easy with the help of a knife fitting between the bottom and the housing of the batteries.

In my case a lot of glue and rubber like material is attached to the battery cell and also to the charge controller board.

Be careful not to use metal tools to remove the white rubberlike material from the board to prevent a short cut, which happend to me.

I yet have to find a way to remove the cells out of the case. Anyone being successful on this alteady ?

Bose used two Samsung cells type ICR18650-26H M

Here is my replacement cell I will eventually order if I find a way to remove the cells from the case.

they offer two capacities: a smaller with 2600mh for ~ € 20,- and a bigger one with 3400 mh for ~ € 30,-

So this would be still half the price eBay sellers are asking for a replacement battery and way cheaper than Bose.

They will charge you € 80,- but you get 1 year warranty :-)

I’ve tried everything to get my soundlink mini working. It flashes red battery, I plug into the wall and hold the mute button for 10 seconds until all the buttons pulse white, then hit power button. The bluetooth or Aux button will pulse white for about 20 seconds, then the speaker dies. I can’t upgrade software as it won’t power long enough. Any advice?

You can get this bose soundlink mini battery replacement at Amazon

Nathaniel Estrada - Reply

The Sound Link Mini has a user replaceable battery.

You can order it from Bose, or if you read the Model No. on the bottom of the battery and you can internet search it for purchase. Amazon, Ebay, and other places carry them for purchase.

If you have a Sound Link Mini II that requires disassembly of the whole unit as the battery is not user replaceable. They are also unavailable for purchase. you have to send it in to Bose to test and replace the battery. That Battery has a ribbon cable soldered on it with a board.

I posted a comment on the battery removal guide for Sound Link Mini II on how to purchase a replacement, so look for it under the appropriate guide title.

I have heard people say the earlier Sound Link Mini II’s might have the earlier user removable battery, but I have failed to see one yet.

Helo everyone, I have a bose sound link mini one, but I don't have the old battery with me, so how can I find out the suitable battery for my unit? Somebody please help me on this :(

Mohamed fikree - Reply

Hi. I had the ‘flashing red power button’ issue and the mini would not take a charge. I contacted Bose, reverted to a previous software version and all is good. The system is charging again.

Geoff Thomas - Reply

I used my speaker almost everyday and then randomly one day it just wouldn’t turn on. I tried to charge it but all it would do is show a orange light as soon as I plugged it in but then went away and wouldn’t charge or make any noises or lights. Do I need a new battery?

I purchase a replacement bose mini battery on Amazon from Emaks.It do a well and save my bose.

The Sound Link Mini II seems to come in two flavors, one with a battery #061384 with accessible/detachable leads, and another version with a battery labeled 088796. The latter one is extremely hard to replace. In that version, the leads at both the battery end and the small PC board are soldered in with a 4-wire flat cable, so even if you could get a suitable replacement, you’d end up disassembling the entire unit.

I noticed that pictures of the right replacement battery (although they are usually sold out) show the black battery assembly together with the small board, so I’m assuming there’s no other way of replacing it.

Since the USB charger delivers just 5V, the board looks like it holds a DC-DC converter to step it up to 9V or so (although I don’t recognize the part). The battery wants at least 7.4V to charge, and I suspect that that converter is the problem. The battery on my unit went from no problem at all to “dead” in a week, so it looks like more of a charging issue than an actual battery issue.
