    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 instructables.com (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.

How do i replace built-in battery in apple iPhone5?


  • According to my information your one-year warranty for iPhone includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. First check it whether your iPhone is within warranty or not. If it is out of warranty, Apple offers a Battery replacement for iPhone, subject to local tax. For the products like built-in batteries, only Apple should replace the batteries or an Apple authorized service provider. Apple and its authorized service providers will ensure the spent battery is recycled properly, since batteries should always be recycled or disposed separately from household waste.

When does the batteries need replacement?


the shaver will slow down as the batteries discharge. To suddenly stop suggests either loose batteries or faulty switch. There should be a charging cradle for the shaver to keep it working but if you need batteries then open the battery cover and replace with the same batteries.

When should I replace my backup battery?


The back up battery should be replaced immediately upon seeing the message "Backup Battery Very Low - Your back up battery is very low or missing. Data loss may result from failure to replace the battery very soon. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for directions on replacing or charging the backup battery." Warning: It is important to note that the back up battery in the MobilePro 900 is not rechargeable, thus, to prevent data loss, it is important to change the back up battery immediately when this message is displayed.
