The battery is located under the top cover of the UE Boom 2. It is held in place by 4 screws and can be replace with a single screwdriver and a spudger.

  1. First, remove the D-ring located on the bottom of the UE Boom 2, the opposite end of the power button. Remove by twisting in a counter-clockwise motion.

    Note - the end cap is an assembly of rubber pad glued to a plastic cap. Make sure you pry up from under the edge of the plastic cap, not remove the rubber alone.

    You don’t need to continue down the side as mentioned below.

    This step is a little bit hard. It requires little bit more force. Make sure not to damage the silicon part, push the tool more in where you can feel the hard plastic part.

    Quite difficult non to break the retaining clips: be slow and careful. Here is a close view of the clips… so that you know what you have to manage…

    Guide is missing a step as there are no screws under the rubber strip.

    In the picture, the instructor is taking off the top of the speaker. DO NOT DO THIS. You must take off the bottom.

    If you make the mistake of opening the top and pulling out the board that holds the power button, what may help you align the board back is undoing the fabric cover clips right on top of the volume up button and gently sliding that board back into place. The connectors aren't as forgiving (yup, it just slides through holes in PCB) as the bottom ones that have tapered female ends so go slow and gently as you can.

    Future readers: Do not.... I repeat, DO NOT follow ANY of this article. I now have a UE Boom 2 that is a complete sh@#show! Rubber I can't fix, and scratches all over like you wouldn't believe. Listen to the previous comments instead. I now have to glue the rubber back on to mine.

    Ok no screws - feeling really stupid for starting this and ordering the stuff from Ifixit

    Mary Johnson - 답글

    Same as above there are no screws visible and I am feeling really stupid from ordering the stuff from IFIxIt. Any solutions?

    You only have to open the bottom cap. No need to remove the lateral.

    In any case, after having replaced the battery, the cap does not close anymore like new: I’ve now about a 0.7-1mm gap. Not a problem for water (shower, not submersion) anyhow, as the impermeability is given by the second cap inside.

    But… my dear UE Boom designers… it’s really sad that such a nice sounding device is so badly designed to replace a simple battery (something that is mandatory after some 2-4 years of usage… especially if very limited usage): quite disappointed!

  6. Carefully un-loop the cable with a plastic spudger and unplug from motherboard. Slowly pull out the battery, and handle with care.

what kind of battery ?and do you have a link to buy one

wrig5235 - 답글

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

Frederic - 답글

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

Frederic - 답글

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.

Joseph Murphy -

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.

Joseph Murphy - 답글

Missing a step, after removing the rubber you are met with smooth caps on the top & bottom of the speaker, no screws holes

Jack Arnold - 답글

Be careful to unscrew only the bottom part and leave the top part in place (the photo is misleading, he removes the top part). the bottom is where the battery is.

Is this just a standard 18650 battery? Looks like it from the picture.

Then we buy a new battery or we just replace the same one. Please clarify me here?

GILBERTH IMBUN - 답글

What do you mean exactly? You need to buy a new battery and replace the one in the speaker with the new one.

Does Somebody also has this Problem?

I changed the battery, everything worked fine. But when I cranked the volume at the maximum, the speakers suddenly shut down and they only work again after inserting the original battery. I bought two batteries from different sources and both had the same problem. Is it just bad luck or does anybody else has this problem?

Elias Bürgisser - 답글

Doing this will cause cosmetic damage to the device around the base. This does not damage the waterproofing.

Waterproofing is provided by:

A) the rubber cap held on by the D ring protects the USB/AUX ports.

b) The purple O ring under the black plastic cap held in by the 4 Phillips screws.

So, if you put all that back correctly, the waterproofing will be fine.

I found that To more easily remove the top, Re-install the D-ring during step 3, then unscrew it 1.5 turns, and grip it with a pair of vice grips.

The vice grips in combination with the Spudger will ease removing the top cover. BE GENTLE, you don’t want to tear the rubber!

If you remove the blue rubber, and it’s smooth plastic underneath instead of 4 screws, you %@#%ed up, and separated the rubber over-molding from the top plastic.

Thanks Adrian!

Most helpful post here!

How this guide became “Featured” is beyond me. Some of the pictures show him opening up the wrong end of the speaker, but most importantly the technique shown here WILL break stuff. The way the top/lid is made makes it impossible to open like this without breaking the structure.

It will however mostly go back together, so it is possible to do it like this, just know that it wont be entirely like before. From what I gather the rubber seals are positioned so that the speaker should still be waterproof after changing the battery.

I took a lot of pics of mine after I opened it, shown here: https://www.reddit.com/gallery/iqq59a

The spudger isn’t the right tool to try and open the case. It bends way too easily. I used a large flat head screwdriver, which had the right leverage to try and open the case.

C W - 답글

used two small flat head screwdrivers to work around popping cap; worked fine, be sure to insert the blades between the cap teeth. I received a small circuit board with battery; what is that for?
