Cardo Scala Q2 battery replacement

Postby wingpilot08 » Mon Jul 11, 2016 10:52 am



I have been using the Cardo Scala Q2 headsets for about 5 years now and one of the units is not keeping a charge for more than 2-3 hrs..so I need to replace the battery or the unit. Cardo Scala no longer provides the service, so looking on line I found instructions to do the change and where to get the battery.

Just ordered the battery and should have it in a couple days..but here is a link to the instructions to do the change...also a video is on YouTube...

Just for a quick follow-up. I purchased my battery from EBay seller on Monday (11 July) when I posted this. Battery arrived on Thursday (14 July). Nice fast shipping and it was the exact battery needed. Opening the unit was a challenge, just because of all the sealant, but one opened it was about 5 minutes to replace the battery and was back in operating order. Charged the new battery overnight and will test the usit on Saturday! I ordered a second battery yesterday..just in case the second headset starts acting up!

Link to EBay seller. Can also be purchased on Amazon!

final follow-up..with the new battery installed in the Q2, we took a couple rides over the weekend..both rides were 3-4 hrs in duration with the headsets set to constant talk (not VoX). The new battery held a good charge and lasted for well over 8 hrs of riding...next test will be in Sept when we head out for Vermont camping trip!
