I purchased this remote for my daughter, who saw it online while I was browsing the DX website. When I got it in the mail and I opened the package, the box had been partially crushed in shipping. A couple of pieces of stiff cardboard in the bubble pack envelope would have really helped protect it during shipping. Despite the crushed box, the remote itself was not damaged. Unfortunately, the CR2032 coin cell battery that came with the unit was Dead On Arrival. I ended up spending nearly as much on a new battery at the corner store as I paid for the remote! I initially had trouble making the Bluetooth "pair" with my Nexus 7, but after turning off Bluetooth and then turning it back on I was able to pair with the remote with no problem. My daughter had the exact same issue making the unit pair with her Samsung Galaxy Avant. Once I had the remote paired, it worked faultlessly with both my Nexus 7 and my daughter's Samsung Avant. The manual claims that the device will work for up to 6 months on a single battery if the remote is used 10 times daily. I don't have any way to test that claim, but I think that as long as it's turned off after each use (there's a slide switch on the side), the battery should last a while. Pros: Handy loop makes it easy to attach to a lanyard or key ring Bright green color makes it easy to find Works with both iOS and Android (although I didn't test it with an iOS device) Cons: The battery in the unit I received was Dead On Arrival. It's entirely made of plastic and probably wouldn't survive being sat or stepped on. I suspect that if you forgot to turn the unit off after use, the battery would run down quickly.
