This extra base is for the Britax Chaperone carseat. The carseat itself does come with a base; this one is extra so that you can have a base in two cars and simply click the carseat in and out rather than un-installing and re-installing when switching cars.

The seat base is sturdy and well-made and holds the carseat in the perfect position for infants without going through the trouble of correctly re-installing each time.

This base is sturdy, heavy, and easy to install. You need this if you have the Chaperone infant carrier and plan on frequently switching it between multiple vehicles (I do). Otherwise, the carrier comes with one of these, and getting an extra is probably not worth the extra cost if it's only going into another vehicle once a week or less.
The underside is very smooth and rounded so that it doesn't dig into your seats and leave an impression. The LATCH straps and buckles are very high quality and one of the standout features. You need to REALLY cinch the straps down tight for it to stay in place, but once you do it feels very secure. There is a nice loop on the end of the strap which makes this task easier. The clips that clamp down the extra strap length feel brittle and cheap, and though I feared they would break, they did not. The rebound bar is an uncommon feature which adds an extra measure of safety in the event of a head-on or rear-end collision, at the expense of additional bulk and weight. I like it, and it can even function as a second handle if you decide to lug it around with the carrier installed for some reason. Setting the carrier in the base is a breeze, it snaps right in place with minimal effort. I found detaching it to be a little tricky, but maybe I just need more practice. It's better than the other way around - I'd rather know that it will stay in place.
I got two of these, because we both work and the carrier will be placed in different vehicles on a near-daily basis, saving us a lot of hassle. If this is not you, or your budget is tight, just stick with the one that came with the carrier.

The britax system is great and we researched high and low for ultimate safety. We have a Mazda CX-7 so not an SUV, but not a compact car. The base is very, very large. So large that we needed to put it in the middle seat because otherwise we would have had to move the driver/passenger seat up too far to be safe. This was okay for us as that is now reported as the safest place for a child due to side impact collisions. It does pose a little bit of an inconvenience getting baby in and out. It wasn't that big of a deal for me, but it might be for some.

Overall, this is a great base and car seat and will keep our baby safe. A little bit of an inconvenience due to size is well worth the benefits it provides.

With the baby arriving in less than three weeks we went ahead and assembled everything including the matching stroller that goes with this car seat and base. It was so easy to install that we spent an extra 30 minutes just going back over the manual for the car and the seat to make sure we had it correct. Total time spent should have been about 10 minutes the first time and about 2 minutes if you ever need to do it again. It's SIMPLE.

It is a bit large and makes putting the passenger seat all the way back impossible, but it goes back enough in my Altima that I can sit comfortably (and I'm a big dude) That's the only reason I deducted a star. And having the second base is a must for a two car family. Especially if one of you drops the kid off and another picks them up. So far so good.

My wife and I have been using the bases for almost 6 months. I can't imagine how much time we have saved dropping the seat into the base and not messing with the seat belt. One of us drops our son off at daycare (they have a room to store strollers and carseats) and the other one picks him up. Makes life easy. It can be tricky to remove the carseat if you don't fully pull the handle, but you quickly get used to it.

We went without the base for 2 weeks over Christmas because the base was too big for our luggage. I feel like the seat is much safer with the base, it felt like the seat could twist more without the base. The base also ensures the correct angle, independent of the car with the simple angle adjustment.

If you are a two car family this is a must have! After recently traveling and using the seat belt with the car seat, I can really vouch for the difference the base makes. So fast, and much, much more safe and secure. We are a Britax family, and we are using this with our 5th Britax car seat.

I ordered this to have the base that matches our grandson's car seat. The product is just as advertised and appears to be working perfectly. I really liked having it delivered to my door at a price less than you can find in stores.

We have been happy with the purchase of both of these based to go with our Britax Chaperone infant car seat. We bought one car seat, and one base for each car. Having both made it much easier to transfer baby from car to car. This was easy to instal in out 09 Tiguan, and our 01 4-Runner. One car uses the Latch system, the other does not and they fit snugly in both cars. The only thing that was a bit of a bother, was that you have to stand of sit on the base to get the straps tight enough. You have to push pretty hard to get the seat to fit tightly. This is a minor inconvenience to me, I would rather do that and feel that the base is tight enough. I felt that the base made the car seat fit in tighter than without it. It was easy to click the seat in and out of the base. We were never in an accident with either car, but the rebound bar makes sense, and gave me peace of mind.
