  • Hello west,

    Thanks for posting! We would like to help you out. It sounds like you may need to replace the battery on the Block Rocker. To order a new battery, parts and accessories for your ION Audio product, email parts@ionaudio.com or call ION Audio’s Parts Department at 401-658-3131 ext. 1407, 8:30 AM – 6:30 PM EST.

    The Block Rocker/Tailgater uses a Lead-Acid Battery. Please read the following article on care for your Lead-Acid Battery.

    LEAD-ACID BATTERIES

    Rechargeable lead-acid batteries are the same type used in automobiles. As with your car battery, how you use this battery has a significant impact on its lifespan. For example, if you forget to turn off your car's lights and drain the battery, a jump start might work a few times. But after a few full discharges, even a jump won't help and the battery will need to be replaced. With proper use and treatment, a lead-acid battery can last for years. Here are some recommendations for getting the longest life from the internal battery.

    GENERAL USAGE

    • Fully charge the battery before using it
    • Avoid completely draining the battery
    • For maximum life, drain the battery 80% once a month
    • Charge the battery completely after each use
    • When fully charged, the battery may be left for up to a week
    • You may leave the unit plugged in for up to two weeks

    STORAGE

    • Avoid storing in high temperatures and moist places
    • For long-term storage, periodically recharge the battery
    • If you do not charge the battery for six months, it may not charge

    DISPOSAL

    • Bring the unit to a recycling center or dispose of in accordance with local ordinances

  • Hello west,

    Is this a bluetooth speaker or one of older speakers that have an iPod dock? If bluetooth, what type of phone are you using?

    I have a problem with charging it won't charge and won't work on mains either
    So I read on here that the battery could be at fault so I changed the battery from my other one and it all worked fine until that battery died and now it won't charge again
    Please help

    Many thanks Clive

    Hi,

    I am French. Sorry for my poor English.

    I have a problem with my ION BlockRocker (I think it's an iPA06).
    Last week it was working but today, when I plug in the device, the charging light comes on for about 5 seconds and then turns off.
    During this time, the battery lights (1..4) remain off.

    I tested the battery: it only comes out 1.4V.
    Before changing batteries, I would like to be sure that the problem comes from there.

    I left it plugged in during the night, but no charge. It's always like that. The appliance does not light even when it is plugged into the wall.

    If you are sure that it is a battery problem, can you tell me the reference and where can I buy one?
    (I am live in France)

    Thank you.
    Regards.
