Changing the oem battery into 18650 li-ion cell

Upgrade the capacity

  1. To get the battery out, you have to take out the right side radiator. - Notice there is two plastic latches, you need to lift both up using some small metal part as the leverages
    • To get the battery out, you have to take out the right side radiator.

    • - Notice there is two plastic latches, you need to lift both up using some small metal part as the leverages

    • - While both latches are up and hold the speakers, trying to turn the radiator anti-clockwise

    • - This can be hard as first but no worry and there is no cable connect to the radiator

    • - As you turn about 1.5cm (or can not turn further), just take out the radiator cap

  2. Disconnect the cable connect to the battery to the board inside the speaker before taking out the battery The JBL battery is Lithium Polymer Brand: GreatPower
    • Disconnect the cable connect to the battery to the board inside the speaker before taking out the battery

    • The JBL battery is Lithium Polymer

    • Brand: GreatPower

    • Model: GSP1029102A

    • Rating: 3.7V 6000mah 22.2 Wh

  3. Option A: is to purchase the exactly same battery then replace it. It is straight forward. No explain needed. Option B (my choice): is to replace with the readily available Li-ion 18650 to save the time order from China and can be assured of the capacity.

    • I decide to pick up 3 cells from Panasonic 3400mah NCR-18650B. Two un-protected and one protected.

    • WARNINGS: make sure all the battery is same voltage before replacing in the speakers | CAREFUL not to short circuit them. Maybe balancing and equalize them.

  4. You need to wire them in Parallel (i.e. 1s3p pack). Two unprotect will be wired to the JBL BMS board. I solder the black wire to the B+ and the red wire to the B-. For easier next time replacement, I only connect the battery by twist the color coded wires together and wrap with electrical tape

    • One unprotected cell will be in the original battery compartment inside the cell holder (as shown) connect to one side of the BMS board.

    • Two cell will be inside the speaker compartment behind the Bass Radiator. The unprotected one (right hand side radiator) will connect directly to the BMS board

    • The protected one (after I open and rearrange the PCB of the battery for better fit into the speaker compartment) will connect parallel to the protected one from other side of the bass radiator.

  5. For your reference. After Finished! NOTEs: I put a few pink foam to make sure no rattle of wires, secured everything and heats isolation (if any :))

    • The cell holder is glue to the battery compartment by silicon.

    • The cells in the battery compartment is just right side and just barely fit so will stay in place without any glue.

  6. Putting everything back in reverse order. Careful with the screws, they can be easily stripped. For a peace of mind, I use plumping tape to ensure 100% waterproof as after all we may have temperer/opened the original speaker seals.

    • Note: make sure everything complete seal, otherwise you will hear the rattles noise from the speakers when you play heavy bass songs.

    • GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN !!!

まとめ

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Cant i only replace the one 18650 battery? Or do I need These silver packs?

Robert Rpunkt - 返信

You probably can use only one 18650 battery but then your speaker will run out of juice much quicker ^^

The way I connect everything is parallel so if you only use one then just direct soldering to the positive and negative of BMS

Note that you can only charge the battery only when you connect the battery through BMS.

Cheers

Hi! How are you? Some bottom leds are failing in my charge 3. Do you know if this could be repaired? Does it afect any other function? Thank you! Dario.

Hi, I do not know if you can replace the bottom leds. My guess it would not affecting the function of your speaker, you can test when open it up and checking the charge on the battery to see before charging and after charging is 3.7 volts. Meaning it is charging and how long the speakers battery should last 10 hrs per charge on high volume.

can u both use the stock battery and 18650 battery ? thanks
