A dead battery can be an inexpensive fix for devices that will not charge, or have a short battery life. This guide will show you how this part can be replaced.

  1. Locate the ends of the speaker. Put a plastic opening tool in-between the rubber end and the mesh. Apply a upward force in order to pry open the end.
    • Locate the ends of the speaker.

    • Put a plastic opening tool in-between the rubber end and the mesh.

    • Apply a upward force in order to pry open the end.

    • Apply this procedure to the other side as well.

    • Will take force.

    • Using metal tools may permanently mar your device.

    Pry all the way around with the tool as there are “clips” that hold the cap in place all around beneath the cap. Avoid trying to “pull the lid open” from the opening of a half opened lid.

    No need to remove fabric or remove both sides.

There is a way to take it apart without all these steps and a complete tear down.

This is huge overkill. Only the bottom cap and circuit board need to be removed for a battery replacement.

I agree. The battery is located on the bottom end only.

^ the person who says that you only need to remove the one end-cap to replace the battery is correct. The process outlined in this article is more likely to damage all the fabric and other end-cap than just opening one end and gently prying it back until you can slide out the battery. FYI, the pull tab on my battery broke right off, and I had to pull it out with pliers.

I just completely destroyed the opposite endcap trying to get it off when apparently only one needed to come off. It’s probably worth editing the instructions to reflect that

YOU DONT NEED TO TAKE THE OTHER SIDE AND ENTIRE VOLUME PAD OFF. This makes the material look tampered and wavy after reinstalling. Just simply remove the side that has the charging port. You can replace the battery just fine from there. I don’t know why it even bothers instructing you to take apart both sides of the speaker.

You do not need to take the outer cloth layer off to get to the battery.

This guide for battery replacement is totally wrong and misleading. You only need to remove the cap where the UE plugs in. Removal of the other cap will undoubtably damage the fabric and cap as it is glued down at the non battery end. There are other more informative sources on youtube giving complete step by step instructions on replacing the battery.

There are a couple of clarifications that would help this guide - besides what was mentioned before around only needing to get the bottom cap off in order to have access to what is needed for a battery replacement. 1) include pictures of how to remove the bottom circuit board and to clarify that it should be extracted as level as possible to prevent damaging the speaker connector. 2) for the section above that talks about removing the rubber sidestrip that covers the volume buttons, emphasize that you want to dig your jimmy into the grove of the bracket - not simply behind the rubber - as you will simply remove the rubber from the bracket. More pictures would be useful here too - like show the remove end caps + rubber side with the bracket attached (ie inside view)
