At the 2021 CES, Sonos debuted a battery replacement kit for Sonos Move users to keep the music coming for hours on end.

When we reviewed the Sonos Move, we found it to be one of the most capable speakers around. it balanced incredible sound with AirPlay 2 connectivity, battery-powered Wi-Fi access, water and dust resistance, and Bluetooth control for on-the-go usage.

Batteries are a naturally consumable resource and won't last forever. Under typical use, Sonos says the Move should maintain acceptable battery life for about three years — roughly 900 charges — at which point a new battery may be needed to keep it running at peak performance for longer. To that end, Sonos is releasing its new battery replacement kit for users.

The kit includes everything you need from a guitar pick-like spudger to pry up the silicone on the bottom as well as a tool to remove the screws and replacement screws for the reassembly.

The Sonos Move Battery Replacement Kit is available in black and white for $69 and available through Sonos. The Sonos Move speaker is also available for $399.
