From a Bang&Olufsen Dealer.
I hope they are still available.

I was just in contact with the B&O service in Finland and they told me that it shows as an expired spare part... Doesn't some sort of consumer law dictate that spare parts should be availlable 5 years after EOL for consumer products.

Last I checked they were available... at a pretty ridiculous price.  I think it was about £140.

I stripped one down (battery) and found the supplier - it's a company in Germany.  I emailed them and asked if they'd be interested in making another small run of them (say, 500) as B&O no longer made them, and they didn't supply them to B&O any more.

No reply.

I did try..........

What kind of a battery is it? Provided it is some fairly standard NiMH cells welded in series in some odd physical shape, there are services who can rebuld them. It's not exactly cheap as you could guess from being mostly manual labour, but nothing near £140, I would expect.

Even many Li-ion battery packs can be rebuilt with new cells.

Just a quick follow up, I just got mine replaced at a dealer so they are still produced. Quite expensive though but cheaper than buying a new speaker, plus I really like the wifi option in the 12.

Hi. Interested to know which dealer replaced it for you. My battery has now packed in 5 years after purchasing the Beolit 12 but there are no spares available and I can’t find anything on the internet that would be a direct replacement.

Battery no longer available. Virtually impossible to find one or even a compatible one.

Specifications of the original rechargeable battery:

- 14,4V
- 2000mAh / 28.8Wh

uses a custom case:

Spare part?

Maybe the cells can be rebuilt by an electronics distributor / service company.
I remember that such services existed for Sony AIBO robot batteries after production ended.
