Hello, I wonder where I could buy a raplacement battery for my Bose Soundlink III. (I'm from Belgium)

Thanks for the response.

Gabriel, ik heb Bose gecontacteerd en ze zeggen dat ze dat niet apart verkopen. Het enigste wat ik heb gevonden is dit:http://www.ecrater.com/p/25268626/batter...

Of als het nog onder garantie valt, gewoon terug opsturen.

Gabrial, I've contacted Bose and they say that they didn't sell them seperately. The only thing that I've found is this:http://www.ecrater.com/p/25268626/batter...

If it still falls under warranty, send the speaker back.
