I was looking for a battery replacement all over the place. Came up with this site that carries parts for the Boom 2:

Why is this set to difficult though? It doesn’t look THAT hard… And will this affect waterproofing of the feature?

Because you do not simply stick the plunger in and pop those tabs. They are a force of evil and I even bent my metal tools to open mine.

People replacing the battery be warned, you can buy a battery from China for 17 shipped on eBay, however what this guide does not tell you is one you open it, and re close it, there will forever be a gap on the top and bottom between the mesh and the rubberish spine. I have not since then tested the water proof feature because of this gap. You are warned and he should have warned us as well.
