Start in a corner, where the casing and the side meet. Use a pointed metal spudger to pry apart the glue holding these seams together. Slide the metal spudger along these seams to separate the back casing from the rest of the speaker.

Feed the battery cable through the hole and remove the battery.

  • This entire white piece needs to be replaced (if replacing the aux/usb port)

Why does the whole White piece need to be replaced if replacing the USB port. I just took apart the case just to replace the USB port (not the battery). It looks like I can replace the port and not need a new case.

It looks like it would be difficult removing the USB assembly because mine looked very well glued in that little space meant for the module to fit.

Thanks for this guide

I need help.

My speaker no longer takes a charge.

Not even that old

Where do I get replacement battery. And what kind

Rose -

Your instructions state to replace the white cover, but do not say why it has to be replaced. Can you expound, please? Thank you,

Delton Eason Jr - Reply

Hi Delton, that is a good question. The entire cover has to be replaced if one is replacing the aux/USB ports.

You can ignore that note in this battery replacement guide. Good catch!

Hi, I am Shashikant Shinde,

I have bought JBL Flip 3 ( Black ) few months back. Surprisingly the battery is not sustaining for long time. I feel the life of the battery should have been stronger than this. Within a year itself the battery has gone bad I think. Has any one a guide to replace the battery in JBL Flip 3 speaker. It is difficult to give the speaker in the service centre, as it is closed on saturday and sunday.

From where can i buy the battery for jbl charge 2

pjraysvarghese - Reply

Hi all,

Just realized i need to change battery in my JBL Charge. First would like to say thanks for the explanations on how to get to that bloody battery ^^

I have one question:

Is it possible to upgrade that battery with one that will last longer and maybe charge quicker?

If yes what battery can i use?

Thank you in advance.

Great instructions. Slightly diff on my charge 2+ but i got the whole idea from here. My charge 2+ started with batt issues about 1 month ago i could only do 1hr playback at mid vol…. i guess since oct 2015 with high usage (upto 2hrs per day) and most wknds for 5hrs and more. it was about time. New batt working great so far. Be careful not to drain your batt till red light flashes. Recharge when ur down to 2 lights and stop when the 5th light flashes. That way u protect from overcharge.

The charge 2+ is a great device.
