Removing Swollen Battery from JBL Flip 4

My Flip 4’s battery went kaput. I researched how to swap the battery, purchased a replacement and was doing great until I realized that the original battery has swelled to the point that I’ve not been able to remove it.

In trying to remove it, the wiring harness ripped off and a little fire started!

I have a certified JBL repair facility two blocks away, but was hoping to get this done myself.

What’s a safe way to remove a swollen battery from a Flip 4?

The exact same thing happened to me. I'm totally unable to remove the battery. Such a loss!

Same happened to me. Great answer below.

the battery in mine was swollen to the point getting it out is IMPOSSIBLE. I have to trash this unit. LESSON: on the first sign of battery wear, CHECK and replace sooner rather than later.

I had the same issue. What I was able to do was to remove the other side speaker and move the charging port a bit to allow a number 2 pencil (eraser side… there are other things I could of used but this was right at my side when I got to this) to be pushed against the bottom side of the battery. It still took a good push but it came out.

Push it instead of pulling it. you can do that by accessing the bottom of the battery behind the charging port. remove charging port first and then you are free to push it.. i pushed it using the short edge of an allen wrench. Just avoid puncturing it while pushing.

Yok Yok! You sir, are a GENIUS! Many thanks for the advice on removing the charging port. Last week when I opened it up I couldn't see the battery from that angle because of the charging port. Now I just need to get the replacement battery...

I was ready to throw out, couldn't see the bottom end bc of charging port. And was getting fire sparks when using tools from top down. Used the rubber coated handle of a wrench to slowly push it out from the bottom as far as could go, and then had enough to latch on with hand and wiggle rest out. Just saved $60 in buying a new one, compared to the cost of a new battery.

bought replacement battery but the removal of bloated battery stuck inside, original battery stuck after cables got ripped out.

carefully read YOK YOK (THANKS !!!) managed to carefully dislodge the charging casement cover and cables, use a test pen to gently pushed the battery out, the base of battery looked like its part of battery enclosure but it not, some flat white wiring visible so push with care. Thanks Again YY!

I used a plastic coated phillips head screwdriver and it took almost all of my might and it was fine. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else but I took the chance and it was fine. Thanks!

Thanx for the tip! Totally got it out but was not aware I was also pushing on a ribbon cable, I thought it was just more of that black tejp I had to remove all around some stuff (not seen in the youtube guides). Well..... Now that is ripped and I'll have to find a replacement, but the battery is out at least. Let this be a warning for others not to do my mistake.

Kyle Petrozza  the worst “the wiring harness ripped off and a little fire started” is over. Use a small spudger or hook and try to remove the rest of the battery. After that discard the battery properly depending on your state/county etc.

There is still a chance of flare up though, correct? If the metal end of a spudger or needle-nose pliers gets into the guts of the battery, it'll react, no?

完成的

Kyle Petrozza I'd be more concert with humidity than a metal tool. Lithium can react violently with water. Use some common sense and you'll be fine. No explosion, no swelling since it is already punctured

I used the largest bit I had that fit into my iFixit Driver. For me, it was the 5.5mm nut driver.

I used rubber coated handle of wrench. Try to use something sturdy that is plastic or rubber and “not sharp” at the point of pressure. May need alot of strength in pressure to push out.

Well that was fun. Not! Bloated battery. Got it out by force (blunt tool to the back of the battery and a hammer to push it out)! Givning birth is easier!! Well… one of the cables to the USB charger was probably disconnected, even if I tried to reset them. Now I have a dead JBL Flip 4 and I’m !#^&@@.

Maybe once the steam has worn off, I’ll try to figure out how to find any tools to see if I can get the USB charger hooked up. But then again, it might just be a wasted amount of money for a new battery and now a new Flip 4. Anyway, it’s dead as a door nail.

I feel your pain. As much as I loved my flip 4, I now have a soundcore motion+ which is decent for the money. For repairability, it seems much better to me now if a speaker is powered by 18650 cells instead of lithium polymer batteries.

完成的

I just took my battery out using a pair of long nose pliers forced them a short distance closed them tightly and it slid without any trouble

How do I removing the charging port? Mesa Mess
