Hi I've recently gotten the critically acclaimed Logitech S715i and I must say I'm extremely impress by the sound clarity the speaker produces.
However, I've a little issue with the battery.
I plugged the speaker into my main through the AC adaptor immediately after I had gotten the speaker and it took about 4 hours to charge. I knew that charging was completed since the pulsing green LED vanished after the 4 hours. However, after I unplugged my AC adaptor and replugged it back into my mains, the speaker started charging again (as evident by the pulsing green LED). It took me another 4 hours before the pulsing green LED stopped. And when I unplugged the AC adaptor again, and replugged it back into the main again, the charging begins, again ... I wonder if this is normal, and if my charging cycle will be depleted as a result of this constant charging and recharging cycle whenever I unplug/replug the AC adaptor into my mains. Or is my battery pack faulty, and this issue can be rectified by changing the battery pack? I mean, shouldn't the speaker detect the battery pack as fully charged and should stop charging instead of charging it repeatedly whenever I unplug the ac adaptor and plug it back into the mains again?
Also, because of this charging issue, I was thinking of removing the battery so that whenever I plug my speaker into the mains it will not charge the battery. However, I'm having issue with removing the battery cover. Is there a proper way to remove it? I tried to pry it open through the rubber stopper, but got paranoid after hearing plastic creaking. The instruction manual made no mention or illustrations about removing it, other than "remove the battery cover" to get the battery pack (which is pretty obvious).
As such, technicians/moderators, please advice me regarding the battery charging issue, and the correct method to remove the battery pack. Thanks a lot

The speaker will stop charging once the battery is recharged, the light is just a timer. The battery also was not meant to be removed, you would have to dismantle the speaker to do so and that would void the 2 year warranty which would cover any battery related issues.
