    I'm not able to remove the battery, it looks like it soldered to the board. An more detail on how to remove it please?

    the mini 2 battery is soldered to a smaller board, either u desolder it or buy it with the small board, but with that it is even harder to replace

    Yeah this guide is just like the original Bose Mini which looked like that model had a way to replace the batter easily. I purchased a battery off Amazon thinking it was the same. This is not the same. The Bose Mini II has a battery hard-wired directly to the board. Might be too late but read this guide’s comments first to get the low down. The guide is very misleading. The BOSE SOUNDLINK MINI II **DOES NOT HAVE A REPLACEABLE BATTERY**

3 Contributors and none of them know how to remove the battery, brilliant... Honestly if you want to do this right, do it right from the begining. The battery is connected with a cable to the device, please explain how did you remove it properly.

Hey Timo,

no, there are just two different battery versions of the Soundlink Mini 2: One without a cable from the battery to the PCB (as shown in this tutorial, i think this is the older version of the Soundlink Mini2) and one with a cable...

I have one here with a cable and I?m desperate to find a new battery for it but can`t find it anywhere on the net... I`m thinking of trying a battery without the cables and try to connect four cables to the battery and then solder them to the PCB...

But how do I disconnect the battery having a cable?! - That’s actually the hard part.

If you have the Soundlink  Mini 2, you can send the battery to Bose and they will rebuild it for $75. It is not user replaceable, although if you are electronics savvy you can remove it.

Problem is there are no replacements out there, and these batteries have a control board soldered to the battery with a ribbon cable. This will require soldering and unsoldering if there was a battery replacement for it. This also requires taking the entire Soundlink Mini 2 speaker apart to remove the board and battery.

If you send the battery to Bose expect a 3 to 6 week turn around for a return, which includes about 10 business days of shipping both ways as its a Lithium battery and can only travel ground. Plus the $75 for the repair as mentioned earlier.

They really did a wonderful job in limiting your options on this item.

Bose Hold this L for us as in Losers!

Tutorila is good for opening, but when it is welded to the battery board, there are no option for tying it apart…

Good product altrough this is badly serviceable for this kind of price

What part model number for that battery ? …. there not all same battery

Be aware that there is a circuit board attached to the battery on some models and this cannot be replaced by yourself. I would suggest checking your current battery to see if this is the case before ordering. I am trying to return my battery to ifixit and haven’t received instructions for the return yet.
