Refreshabraille with multiple devices

Braille on Apple Products

Hi All,
I'm wondering how the experience is sharing a Refreshabraille between several Bluetooth devices. I am aware that it does not support multiple, simultaneous connections as the Vario Ultra and Smart Beetle do, however this is not what I'm asking about. Essentially, can the Refreshabraille be paired to more than one device, and simply connect to the first device which seeks it out? In this way, I could lock my iPhone and then unlock my iPad, and the Refreshabraille would connect to the iPad since the connection with the iPhone was broken. I have a Baum SuperVario that works this way and, as the Refreshabraille is built by Baum, I was wondering if it had the same capability. Has anyone tried this? I'm particularly interested in the third generation Refreshabraille.

I hav not noticed it to be problematic, other than if you have it connected to one device, and a second one unlocks and tries to pair with it. This sometimes causes the RB to freeze. I usually put devices I'm not using that are connected on DND, or turn off Bluetooth altogether to not mess with the connection.
