I have a 70B where the internal USB receptacle broke away from the main board. I opened up the unit and concluded there was no way I was going to reattach it, so I decided to run a wire from the battery out the side of the case which will allow me to connect to a charger to charge the battery.

I see three wires connected to the battery:
thicker red wire
thicker black wire
thin blue wire

I soldered two wires to the red and the black and connected it to a 5v 700ma charger and the unit powers on and works fine as long as it's plugged in. Connecting this way allows me to use the unit, but does not charge the battery.

Since my goal was to connect a lead that would allow me to charge the battery, I would like to know which wires I should connect to in order to charge the unit.

Thanks!

Turns out that it was actually charging the battery, but the way it's connected won't let the system know it's being charge. In other words, the system is still asking me to connect the charger because it's not unaware.
So I'm all good - battery is being charged through my external connection and I can run off battery power (without the unit being plugged in).
