    • Once you have exposed the screws, use a #1 Phillips screwdriver to remove the four 9 mm screws.

    • It would be wise to use a magnetic mat for the screws for safekeeping.

Looks like a great solution to fixing the speaker with a battery with a short life span. But what's the amperage of the lithium barberry and where can I purchase one ?

Did you ever find out where to purchase a new battery for it?

My Bluetooth speaker just has a rubber suction on the bottom. There is no area to replace a battery. Is there any way to reset I?

Not sure if it is just mine or if this is actually how it charges. When I plug my HMDX Bluetooth earbuds, the light will turn red for a little bit then it turned off. Is it still charging or is something wrong with my earbuds?

Should the red light come on as soon as I insert the usb cord?

Instructions above were helpful for my HMDX Jam model HX-P230A. To replace the battery, I bought a 3.7V 550 mAh battery on eBay for $7.50. (I believe the original battery was 500 mAh). See eBay listing at http://www.ebay.com/itm/251453907013. There's no manufacturer but the UPC is 737590401657 and the Model number is 053035. I'm not a great solderer so I did not unsolder the old battery. Instead I clipped the leads about half way. I then twisted the new battery wires onto the wires dangling from the circuit board. BTW - the wires are really small. After twisting, I soldered the twisted wires and then wrapped with electrical tape. So far, works like new again. Good luck with your battery replacement!

"What replacement battery?" (in general)

Two Parameters:

1) Voltage:

3.7V should normally the default voltage (V) of this build-in Lithium batteries. I suppose you could choose any other Lithium Battery, with the same voltage. To the best of my knowledge.

2) Ampere:

The origin battery of HX-P230A has ~500mA (=0.5A). You could also take a higher A (ampere) to prolong use-time.

I personal chose Battery “NB-6L” (3.7V, 1600mAh). The physical dimension of this battery are nearly perfect for HX-P230A.
