Inleiding

Has the battery life of your device become unusable? Does the battery seem to refuse to charge? A faulty battery is possibly the cause of these power issues. As the battery undergoes more cycles, it holds less charge.

  1. Insert the plastic opening tool in the crack in between the cover and the rubber spine with the power button. Pry off the cover, beginning with the side without the volume and bluetooth buttons. When prying the cover off, the six clips (three along each side of rubber spine) that attach the cover to the speaker will make snapping sounds.
    • Insert the plastic opening tool in the crack in between the cover and the rubber spine with the power button.

    • Pry off the cover, beginning with the side without the volume and bluetooth buttons.

    • When prying the cover off, the six clips (three along each side of rubber spine) that attach the cover to the speaker will make snapping sounds.

    • Pull the cover off with your thumbs.

    Important suggested edit to these instructions - make sure to pry off clips/ridges from BOTH sides before attempting removal of the cover.

    I interpreted these instructions as saying you only needed to pry clips from one side - then peel off cover. Doing this broke a clip from the other side. Bummer. I'd like others to avoid that.

    If you do break a clip - save it. They are relatively easy to glue back into the cover.

    My Flip4 had a single long clip on the non-button side that ran the entire length of the rubber spine. The other side (with play/ vol buttons) had three seperate clips (middle and both sides) as mentioned above.

    What if my speaker battery dies very fast and makes weird crackling noise, is it counted as faulty battery?

  2. Remove four 13 mm JIS #0 screws attaching the rubber spine to the speaker, located on both sides of the inside of the speaker. Use the plastic opening tool to release the clips holding the central part of the rubber spine. Pry away one end of the rubber spine with your thumbs and it should come off.

    • Pry away one end of the rubber spine with your thumbs and it should come off.

    • Prying off the spine may take some persuading.

    • The speakers are strong magnets. Keep it away from other sensitive electronics.

    Suggested Edit : Be careful when removing the screws that they don't get attracted to the speaker (magnet). They can scratch the speaker.

    kevmuldoon13 - Antwoord

    Note : screws don't need to be removed from their “channel” (it’s quite difficult). Just unscrew fully and leave in channel.

    kevmuldoon13 - Antwoord

    Note or precaution: Place a piece of cardboard over the speaker or use a plastic/rubber/nonmetalic handled screwdriver when loosening/removing the 13 mm screws. The speaker magnets are so powerful that the end of my metal jewelers phillips screwdriver was pulled into the speaker, tearing the plastic/rubber cone. I destroyed two speakers in the process of replacing the battery. Had to buy the speakers from JBL ($16 each).

    • Pull the end cap off with your hands.

    The end cap has some kind of adhesive on it. I’m a strong guy and couldn't pull it off. Sliding a plastic pry tool around the edge helped break the adhesive and make it removable.

    kevmuldoon13 - Antwoord

    You helped me a Lot!! There is som versions of these speakers that you need to Twist It a little bit before remove it but wasnt my case… thank you Very much!!

    Luis Frederico - Antwoord

    You have to possible sides, chose the one with an “R“ on it. In my version there are no 5 screws. Just lever the endcap lose to remove it.

    Ste fan - Antwoord

    In my version there are also screws. The end cap must be rotated instead to remove it.

    In my case there was no way to get the Battery out this way as it was a bit bloated and thus stuck.

    By removing the cap on the other side and removing the Charging Port I was able to push it out with the thick side of my screwdriver.

    I also have a slightly other version of the body where the caps are hold by a rotation/clipping mechanism not by screws

    Richardo Otros - Antwoord

    Similar to the other comment - I agree - this step was incredibly difficult. It took me about an hour of gentle prying, wiggling, and forceful pulling to get it out. In the end, VERY cautiously using a pair of broad nosed pliers was what allowed me to pull out it.

    Bloating I'm sure does play a role - but I think the main factor is the foam wrapper around the stock battery. It makes it stick to the battery channel.

    You have to be extremely cautious when doing this step, as you don't want to rupture the battery but need to apply a considerable amount of force to get it out with not much leverage for your hands.

    kevmuldoon13 - Antwoord

    As mentioned above, the battery is HARD to remove.

    You also need to be very careful to not tear or puncture the battery, as Lithium Ion can have a violent chemical reaction when it mixes with air (Google “Galaxy Note 7 Explosion” to see what I mean!) WEAR EYE PROTECTION at the very least.

    I don’t recommend removing the other side cover and charge port to push the battery out with a screwdriver. Danger!!

    What worked for me was first I inserted my this screwdriver down one side of the battery.

    This pushes the battery all the way to one side of it’s little compartment.

    Then I sprayed some WD-40 on the side after removing my screw driver.

    Then I switched my screw driver to the other side and repeated with the WD-40 on that side.

    Finally, I clamped the wires in a vise and gently pulled while wiggling the batter back and forth in it’s little compartment.

    Still, it took maybe 7mins of carefully pulling while wiggling to finally get it out.

    The wires were destroyed but who cares. The point of removing the battery is to replace it anyway.

    takentrashout - Antwoord

    Thank you!!! Your WD-40 idea made this work. What a pain in the ass but I got it!

    James Egan -

    Mine was really bloated and stuck so I also had to push it out from the other side. You have to disconnect the first connector as you look down the tube from the charging port. Then take out 4 screws from the charging port and pull it out toward the exterior as much as you can (there is still another connector on it). That will give you enough room to snake in a long screw driver beside the ribbon cable and push the battery. Be careful around the ribbon cable!

    Flaviu Ciobanu - Antwoord

    Can confirm, it’s the hardest part.

    Push from the other side +WD40 was the solution.

    Thanks guys!!

    Juan José D'Ambrosio -

    At the first try i couldn’t move the battery - totally stuck.

    Next day i bought a can of WD-40. After adding some drops an waiting for a couple of minutes the battery was pushable from behind (remove the charging port). ;-)

    Tammo Meyer - Antwoord

    Mine was also bloated i had to take out the charging port, and start pushing it from behind until it got out, you have to be really careful since it is a lithium battery and if you pierce it there is a risk of explosion. Great step by step guide!

    Melvin Ulerio - Antwoord

    Same “stuck” problem here too.. WD 40, patience and a Card helped… after ALL, I put some felt around the New battery to prevent vibration noise. Take a look: https://photos.app.goo.gl/BH5wGmBpQXRW7g...

    Since the Flip 5 have a 4800mAh cap, can I change the battery capacity of the speaker from the current 3000mAh?

    Randl Manigsaca - Antwoord

    Didn’t work at all! The contacts came off, and the battery is still stuck. Have throw the whole thing away. Thanks!

    Another stuck, bloated battery. Using an eyedropper to add a few drops of isopropyl alcohol around the sides seemed to somewhat dissolve the sticky rubbery foam tape, but wasn’t enough to free the battery from the front. In the end I removed the charging port and used a pair of pencils (blunt eraser side toward the battery) to get enough reach and grip to force the battery out from the rear with firm pushing.

    Jason Gerecke - Antwoord

    Agree with other commenters. Remove the other end cap, remove 4 screws around charging port, remove first cable from charging port and kind of pull the charging port out of the body a little bit to give yourself some room to see the battery behind (be careful because there are two more cables connected). Apply a few drops of oil around the battery and wiggle the battery back and forth a few times. Use the eraser end of a pencil (nothing sharp like a screwdriver, if you pierce the battery it may catch on fire) to push the battery out from the back side, being careful to avoid the ribbon cables. You may have to push pretty hard. Use a paper towel to clean up the oil before installing the new battery.

    Kyle Winfield - Antwoord

    apparently I have been lucky that my battery didn’t explode! The battery was stuck and I used a tiny flat spatula with some vinegar to get rid of the sticky black material around the battery and then a corkscrew into the battery and took it out as I open my favourite wine! Worked best for me; however, I don’t suggest doing it if there is a risk of explosion!

    Mine was bloated too, but it was enough to remove the other end cap and push the battery out with a screwdriver.

    guys, as mentioned above, be very careful! my battery kinda exploded while pushing with screwdriver (stupid idea) luckily just a little smoke/steam came out, finally i got it done but please do not use sharp tools at all. good luck!

    p.jiranek - Antwoord

    The pencil and “triflo” did the trick. I removed the other end and, careful of the ribbon cable, put the pencil in and used a small hammer to tap the battery free!

    Paul - Antwoord

    No joy. Tried for one hour but could not move the battery by even a mm. Nicely done, JBL. Next speaker is another brand.

    Sebastian Bernhardt - Antwoord

    You have to use a fair bit of force. Just make sure you're using a blunt object that spreads the force as much as possible and be careful of the ribbon cable

    Kiraely Adam -

    I had to put the blunt object and flipped it around and tap it against my table

Is the battery glued into the socket like the Flip 3?

Kenneth - Antwoord

No it isn’t. but the black rubber around it makes it really hard to get out. try to push it from the otherside by removing the charging-port.

Be careful not to pierce the battery

Richardo Otros -

Yes with me the battery was glued

Diter Freeman -

Be careful and don’t do like me: my old battery was bloated, so I had to push from the other side, but when doing so, I ripped the ribbon cable from the power button… now trying to find a replacement cable

très bon tutoriel, toute l’opération réussie à un bémol prêt, ma batterie aurait chauffé (?) et demeure inextricable de son logement soit elle a gonflé sous l’effet de la surchauffe, soit la bande noire en caoutchouc des extrémités de la batterie ont fondu.

Va voir le truc du WD-40 dans les commentaires de l’étape 5, c’est comme ça que j’en suis venu à bout.

benoitbensimard -

Am I correct to assume that the speaker will no longer be water proof after performing this? or would it still be able to keep the water out even after the repair?

valenzonap - Antwoord

Step 3 seems to be outdated, apparently in newer models the caps with the membranes can be twisted off, no more screws.

Other than that, thanks for the great tutorial! I too encountered the removal problems with the battery (which was on top of that somewhat bloated).

Philipp Wagner - Antwoord

Yep, the new models only have two screws inside the body that connect the caps and the outer shell.

Two other points to consider, the screws are absolute trash so it is VERY easy to strip them out. It’s almost easier to take the speakers out by unscrewing them (no need to disconnect them, just pull them out and to the side) so you can get a straight shot at the screws. The other thing is that the new caps can also be quite hard to twist back on. Rather than break your wrists, the body or the caps by wrenching them on, apply a small amount of lubricant like evaporating silicone to the little clasps inside the cap rings. The caps will twist on easily from there

Mike - Antwoord

This was an excellent tutorial, but should be amended to note that, if the battery is swollen, you can remove the end cap from the other end, remove the USB port (carefully) , and push the battery out from the other side, instead of trying to pull it out.

julian cruz - Antwoord

Buenas noches, mi FLIP 4 luego de sonar un rato comienza a distorsionar el sonido y se apaga; será la bateria defectuosa?

Freddis Rivas - Antwoord

My battery was very swollen so in the end I had to completely disassemble the speaker removing everything including pcbs, antenna, speakers etc. Finally I soaked the battery in oil and after a lot of very hard pushing with a big tool on the back of the battery it came out. My battery was so swollen that it curved the roof of the battery compartment.

Carl - Antwoord

Battery is likely swollen. push it out from the other side. use something blunt long and strong. I had to force it. be careful ware safety glasses. good chance you will puncture the battery. I did it outside. bad smell came out but no fire or explosion. battery was badly damaged. safety concern about how to dispose of a punctured battery. works like new again though. Good luck.

Lioneye - Antwoord

There is a data/power cable wrapped around the end of the battery preventing its removal. Can’t identify where this is Connected…

Chris Vincent - Antwoord

Decided to ‘go for it’. It is a short length of ribbon cable Just securing the battery.

Chris Vincent - Antwoord

This cable runs from the on/off switch, under the pcb, through a very fine slot in the speaker body & around the battery. So. This cable needs to be disconnected from the on/off switch pcb then partially fed back through the slot to allow the battery to come out. DO NOT PULL THE CABLE ALL THE WAY OUT. You’ll never get it back through the slot under the battery once the new one is in place. Hope this helps you…

Chris Vincent - Antwoord

WARNING - power ribbon cable.

If, like me and many others, your battery is extremely swollen then force from the bottom is the only option to remove it. That said, please take care to try and avoid the power button ribbon cable. In successfully forcing the bloated battery out of my JBL Flip 4 I have severed the ribbon cable connection and the speaker is now unusable as the power button and charging lights do not work.

Now I have a new battery and a broken speaker!

If there is a way to fix the ribbon cable I’m all ears but it looks very busted to me.

Cheers

Cal - Antwoord

Use a non metallic screwdriver if possible. I ruined both side speakers when the magnates grabbed hold of the screwdriver poked holes in them.

Larry Alfonso - Antwoord

for those who like me ripped out the ribbon cable that connects to the power button circuit board due to a bloated battery

i highly recommend salvaging your ribbon cable! there is excess ribbon cable that is tucked under the speaker (note that the ribbon cable is attached to the center port peel back the foam adhesive and you’ll have excess ribbon cable to route)

after which use a scissors to make a fresh straight cut followed by either a straight razor or a craft knife to scrape the plastic revealing the copper wires underneath. do about 2-3mm worth or just follow the ribbon cable that is still attached to the port on the circuit board.

a small note is to reuse the blue plastic piece to shim the newly exposed cable into the port and close the tab and it should work! (at least it did for me.)
