    Note that after replacing the battery from the recall, the speaker only gets about half as loud as it used too with the original battery. As such, I would NOT buy this speaker again, and I am not longer happy with it. I understand the need for the recall, but it is a shame as I really liked this speaker and was going to buy a 2nd one because you could pair them and run 2 at the same time.
