Bypass bluetooth speaker not working without a connected battary

Hello,

I have a very nice looking bluetooth speaker from Teufel called Bamster (no model number, only SN available at the back).
Because the speaker of my monitor are deteriorating I wanted to use the bluetooth speaker with two wires: Micro USB for power and an AUX cable.
To my surprise there was no battery inside, a bigger surprise was that there are no aftermarket batteries in sale ALSO no disassembly videos for this speaker. I guess it wasn't sold for a long time.

Anyway, the battery connector has 3 Pins. I connected it to my power supply, middle pin was ignored and I got it working, I could pair it with my phone and play music. However, no sign of life, if I connect it to the power socket.

How can I bypass the battery is not connected issue? I thought about connecting the 5V micro USB with the + battery connector pin and same with ground. This way I could close the unit and keep the aesthetics. Other way is of course to make a hole and connect straight to the battery connector pins. I guess I have to remove the micro USB to make space for the wires and this way I wouldn't need to drill holes.

I am curious though:
Would you be able to solve this issue, if you would have schematics for the board? I think is not possible, right? There must be some IC which checks the battery. Maybe some kind of a hack would help.

Thank you.

Edit:
I salvaged a small LiPo battery with 3 pins from a 2016 JBL wireless headset with 650 mA and soldered it to the battery connector. With AUX I had a very loud noise but with Bluetooth the speaker works fine. Great sound, great design and I don't need to fix my monitors speakers.


Had to use a Bluetooth dongle to connect to PC. I am worried that the battery will be charging all the time but luckily the battery has a small PCB, in case something goes wrong, I hope it will shut the battery. The led on the device indicates charing, it charges all the time. I hoped it would get the current from the micro USB.

I have to keep testing, because I noticed few things:

-In one of two restarts, I had to reconnect the speaker via the Bluetooth settings in Windows

-I lost audio in game but Windows had sound, had to restart the game, didn't happen again

-The PC is near my bed, the speakers goes in safe mod after 10 and it turns off after 20min. according to manual, I hope it makes no sounds while doing so

-I think I will turn off ErP (USB power after PC shutdown), so the speaker don't draw current.

it will show its charging anyway, its the same if your phone battery is at 100% it will still show its charging if connected to the charger, a 3 pin connector is likely postive, negative and battery data line, if the battery you connected has 3 wires just make sure each wire is connected to the correct line

Do you have experience with batteries?

I have a new battery for a Bluetooth speaker (JBL Flip4) with 5 wires (2red, 2black and one white).

Could I merge two reds to one red, same with black and connect it to the PCB of the Teufel Bluetooth speaker (which has 3 pins)? I mean I would have 3 wires at the end.

OR should I only connect one red, one black and the battery data line?

@forbiddenfume reds are positive and black are negative, white could be a data line
