How can this be a battery replacement if "no parts required", like it says?

Also, this fixit is really only half done without information as to the model of the battery needed for a replacement, or at least some specs like size, volts, mAh, etc. You've already done the hard work it would seem, so why not share it. Otherwise everyone doing this is forced to take it apart before trying to then figure out the battery they need to replace... then more waiting to order and ship and etc. etc.

This is foolish as you needed the internet to post. Type in “JBL clip 2 battery replacement” (copy the quotation if your laziness knows no bounds) to the search bar, no “specs necessary” and when it arrives you will have no problem following his perfect directions. Don't try to be an articulate troll.

Are you sure your watching the right instructions for the model you own? If 2 wires, and the right battery was bought, then it also should have 2 wires. IF 3 wires on the battery, perhaps the wrong model battery was ordered for your device. Watching a teardown video just now, this “ JBL Clip 2” has 3 wires. It is always a possibility that JBL used a version 1 and version 2 battery / motherboard in the JBL Clip 2’s.. you would be the one to determine that.

Just Me -

Motherboard anchored into shell with thick black adhesive/epoxy that would destroy components when accessing battery for replacement. Guide TOTALLY fails to note this. This FixIt is incomplete/inaccurate.
