    I've used Sena for about 7 years now and I will tell you first hand no matter what manufacturer and their claim to be "universal intercom pairing" they're full of s**t. You CAN pair them but what they don't tell you upfront is that doing so will replace the pairing of your cell phone. For some of you that might be okay but for me that's a hard no. Tried it a few years ago with my Sena SHH-10 and a coworker's Cardo unit and no joy, it knocked out our cell phones. Tried it last year on the Void Rally with a friend from OH as we were going to ride as a team and he had the newest Cardo Packtalk Bold which was supposed to be improved and better support the pairing with other brands. Once more after about 45 minutes of fighting with them they would pair but we'd both lose our paired cell phones. Easiest way to use mixed brands to communicate is this: Pair your cell phone to your headset and the other rider should do the same. Use your phone with voice command and call the other rider. This increases bike to bike range to whatever the range of a cell phone would be. Doesn't' significantly decrease battery life and makes things simple. If you regularly ride with a group of Cardo users and don't have a com unit yet then by all means join their party and buy a Cardo. If Sena is the choice f most friends buy Sena. Both units work well have have their advantages, both units have flaws. Just don't expect to be able to mix brands anymore than expecting to fit Ford Ranger parts on your Toyota Tacoma.

    I'd prefer a not china brand. Especially since I'll very rarely ever use it, seeing as I ride the bike at a bare minimum of once a week. Only time it'd sit for longer than a week is if I go on a vacation

    +1 for the noco products

    though even they also have manufacturing in hong kong, no matter how much they advertise being designed and engineered in the states...

    I have their jump pack and it worked great the 1 time I had to do it. I just don't want the straight made in china, sold from china, product page info is broken english because its from china type one that will break after a month. I'll prolly get a NOCO that @spencermarkd linked for me

    I'm just going to get the NOCO 2 since the unit doesn't plug directly into the outlet and I know I'll need some extra cable length.
