dead battery, dead item?! (Scala Rider battery change)

Recommended Posts

3 weeks ago my scala rider battery die, I try to find another battery to buy but surprise!!! the scala raider batteries can`t be replaced.. hmmm, contact scala raider customer support and the answer was something like we don`t change batteries in europe for our intercomunicators... really? I don`t give a F if you change or not batteries, I want buy a battery where I can found one? the answer was "you can`t found"... hmmm... again.

so, if your battery is dead, you must pay another over 100 pounds for another new and shiny scala raider

I do some search and the only place I can buy this battery, is on the company who produce them... and you can buy just if you want more than 1000 pcs... ok, I like my scala rider but not so much to buy 1000 batteries.

after another search I found on website some forums where the people had the same problems and some find a way to solve this problem... there is on the market an IPOD battery with the same specification you can use to change your scala rider battery so, you need 2 screwdrivers (cross and star)... don`t know what is the name for this 2 kind of screw drivers but I`m sure you know what I speak about, also you need a knife to cut the protective film on the battery and a soldering gun.
