Just order Scalarider G9

We were originally looking at the G4, but after reading the reviews, decided on the G9. Did a search on this forum, but didn't find much. There are supposedly some upgrades and fixes on the G9 as compared to the G4. Looking for some real world feedback to re-enforce my decision.

Re: Just order Scalarider G9

Doug, Sammie & I along With Jim & Tonya all have the G4. They work great but we are limited to only connecting to 4 total people. The G9 will connect to 9 plus it has a few more bell & whistles. Bo has the G9 & likes it but the down side is the battery life is only about 10 hours. I've run my G4 for over 18 hours before it died. For me the extended battery life makes the G4 a better set up. Myself , Jim & Tonya talked together most of the way to breakfast & back this morning & it makes riding together much better.

Yeah, the battery life is a somewhat less, but from what I saw, they offer a 12 volt adapter, so should be able to charge on the bike if needed.

But you can not use it while charging. When Bo & I ride across the USA every year I take Sammies G4 so when his dies he can use Sammies while his charges on the bike.

Well, I guess that depends on who you're connected with.

Re: Just order Scalarider G9

Is the G9's speakers and audio quality any better than the G4?
