ScalaRider G4 on helmet charging?

I am going on a longer trip next year with a friend and we both have the G4 from Scala.

I was wondering how we could charge or keep the device charged while we are moving?

It seems to last 6-8 hours, but we are looking for 10-12 hour days.

any advice?

I have gotten 12 hours out of the G4 without problems. Of course that depends on how much chatting there is.

Last April when Karen and I returned from Alpine we left Alpine at 6:30Am and arrived in Houston at 9PM all without charging.

Re: ScalaRider G4 on helmet charging?

Here is what Scala had to say

Thank you for contacting Cardo Systems Support Center regarding our
products.

The Scala Rider G4 is not designed to be used while charging, doing so
will damage the charging port and void your warranty.

However, the Scala Rider G4 will last you for 10 hours of constant use,
and you can buy a car charger to charge the headset while it is not
being used during your ride.

Oh and we never got 10 hours.

Of course my riding buddy and I must be very chatty.
