    Would also like to know how to replace the battery and the battery specs. I didnt use the headset for a couple of years and the battery died in the meantime.

I had the same problem... the battery is part # 501235 and is 3.7v 150 mah (yes, it's tiny). Searching for this on the web yields such a part at various places but not any retail options that I could find.
I took it apart per the instructions at (above) and then jump-started the battery using a maglight penlight. Sometimes rechargeable batteries get "stuck" on empty when they drain down to absolute zero and have trouble accepting any charge... To jumpstart it, do this:
Get a Maglight AAA or AA penlight (2 cell) and unscrew the end as if you were going to replace the light bulb. The bare bulb must be on when the reflector is removed (or, perhaps the batteries are dead).
Remove the bulb.
Obtain two short (1") pieces of bare 22-26AWG wire and insert them into the holes where the bulb wires were previously inserted.
Using a multimeter, determine which wire is positive and which is negative
Align the + terminal of the rechargeable battery in the Jabra with the positive wire identified on the flashlight - do the same with the negative terminal. Hold the flashlight on the battery for a minute or so to allow some of the current from the light to slightly charge the jabra battery.
Before putting the Jabra back together, try the AC or USB power cord - you should now get a solid red light if it is charging.
If not, try to "jump" it again for another minute or two or three.
If this doesn't work, the battery is probably totally shot - maybe you'll have better luck finding a replacement than I did.
The Maglight isn't necessary, but it is a simple way to obtain the 3.0v DC power source. You could use a similar power source to obtain the same effect (probably 2.7-3.7v DC is best).

    "Jumpstarting" the battery worked for me. I used a small DC power supply to provide the charging current to the battery. Thanks for the tip!

  • warmoes Nov 17, 2010

    this was a very good advice. Thanks to you I brought a very old Jabra 250 BCE back to life.
    The Jabra helpdesk told me that a replacement of the battery was not possible.
    I used also a DC power supply, it was dificult because it is all so small but th headset is working very good again.
    Thanks Ruprik.

    I taped together 2 AA batteries in tandem with bread ties , one at each end for wires, and held them to the Jabra battery terminals, and it WORKED! It's attached to the USB on charge now, and the light is solid RED, whereas, before, it would flash green once when I hooked it up to charge, and then nothing. Thanks for the tip! I paid $4.00 for this thing at a yard sale, Don't think it was ever used. Let's see if I can get it resurrected!

So for pictures of disassembly, and of the interior including the battery, see the instructables link above. No pictures of actually jumpstarting, but here's a description that I hope is clear enough to be useful.

For me, I didn't need a multimeter to determine the battery polarity: the + and - were marked right on the top of the battery, about 8mm from the edge of the battery that attaches to the motherboard. Look for it, it's small, but it's there.

As for the jumpstarting setup, I simply used some scotch tape to put 2 1.5v AA batteries together in-line, attached a wire (actually, 2 xmas tree ornament hooks bent straight) to each end (also with scotch tape), and then touched the wire on the + end of the AA battery contraption to the + lead on the Jabra battery and the - end similarly. (+1 to asweber411 for this idea) Held for about 30 seconds, got tired of holding the whole bloody thing (it's small, my hands are shaky and my eyes are not great) but even 30 seconds was enough - this worked like a CHARM! I was totally skeptical at first. Props to Ruprik for this fix, it recovered a 2-year dead Jabra BT350 today and made me a very happy camper.

Important tip, don't reassemble the whole thing before trying to plug in the charger to see if the red light will stay lit after this procedure. If you have to do it 2 or 3 times (or, if like me you're shaky and not 100% sure you had good contact) it will save you from a disassemble/reassemble cycle.)

This worked perfect.
I was a little confused and had the battery only on the + Bluetooth + terminal.that didn't work. I re configured my two double aa's batteries taped together with two small pieces of wire.hardest part so far was holding the wires on both.
I only held mine on for ten or so seconds.
my foil got trashed when I was taking it off it all stuck to the device. I think im going to hit it with a sharpie or cut some foil and glue the faceplate back on.
I have no training in this field. Thank you your instructions are very good.

    also if they made the black piece that hold the ear piece removable you would be able to do this without opening the device.

Crazy thought do you think it would be a similar solution to jump start a dead laptop battery? don't try this unless one the gurus gives us an answer. it would be very dangerous to try it without their thoughts on the matter.

H550 repair battery

In certain cases you are able to pop them open very carefully and replace the battery, all depends on what kind of battery it is. Most are now going to the small battery packs so if yours is new that is probably what it is and there isnt a way to replace.

How to replace a battery

I checked the manual, available here ;
I can see no mention of battery replacement.
I looked on eBay and found no-one selling replacement batteries for the BT330.

The battery type used in headsets only lasts two to three years, so you may have to replace your headset. I noted a Jabra model BT2040 available that uses non rechargable AAAA batteries.

Does this take batteries??

Yes, it has a battery in the headset, but the battery is not replaceable. You can purchase a replacement headset that works with the base. Here is a link where you can purchase the replacement headset:

My scala rider battery won't hold a charge in standby - typically goes flat in about 8 hours. And I cannot get a reply about it from Cardo

Guys, if you roll out a device that can detect the battery if you own a soldering iron it can be easily replaced by a similar or even greater capacity.

No sound, not able to pickup receiver

On the CS55 headset itself, right below the speaker that sits on the ear is a cover that can be removed.  Inside is a small special battery.  The battery life tends to last about 3 years, and at that you should be getting 8 - 10 hours of talk time.  Once it's decreased to about 4 hours of talk time in a day, it's about time to replace the battery.

BT250V battery

The battery is not replacable.

Bad news: The battery in the Plantronics M2500 is NOT replaceable under ordinary circumstances. And unfortunately, this trend of non-replaceable batteries seems to be catching on with manufacturers, like with Apple IPods. But here it's even worse, because you can't even open the battery cover unless you're willing to DESTROY the case in the process!

But when my Plantronics M2500's batteries stopped taking a charge, I figured it was as good as destroyed anyway. So if you're a lunatic like I, and are DETERMINED to revive your dead M2500 rather than recycle this rather expensive bluetooth headset, it is possible -- though very difficult -- to replace the batteries.

First you have to find two 1/4 AAA NiMH batteries (10mmX14mm), preferably with solder tabs. These are not easy to find, especially when you just want two of them. So if you can't get these, this is the end of the story. But if you can get the batteries and have successfully soldered them together, you then "simply" (ha ha!) pry off off the battery case (under the dark gray rubbery stuff) by cracking the glue line and pulling it off.

Be sure to keep the mangled bit of plastic case that WAS covering the battery compartment. No, you can't use it again, but it will remind you never again to buy electronics with non-replaceable batteries.

Solder in your new battery pack, and see if the M2500 will charge up and then turn on. If it won't, THIS may be the end of the story. But if it does, congratulations! You have replaced the batteries! You're finished except you just have to figure out how to rebuild the case. I used epoxy clay, which can be molded into any shape, and then hardens into a rock-hard chunk of plastic. That works pretty well, but once you do that, you'll not be able to do all this again. Which may be a good thing. :-)
