I bought this remote to carry with me when biking. It is small but seems to have about the same range as the full sized version. The only possible negative is that to be small it uses a more costly battery. That said, I have been using this remote for over 6 months and it is still on the original battery and works very well.

This "Genie MAT90 keychain garage door opener" remote is the same unit as the "Genie MAT90-BL Mini Remote Controller" remote. I was looking for the smallest keychain remote that would work with a Genie garage door opener that was over 10 years old (without Intellicode). After I purchased this remote, I found and purchased the "Mini" remote thinking it was smaller. Both remotes are exactly the same. I was fooled by the advertised descriptions listed from 2 different sellers on Amazon.com. So Buyer Beware. \
BTW, I can use both remotes... the only problem is that I paid shipping costs from each seller, which means I spent $6-$7 extra.

I like the portability of this garage door opener because I ride a scooter. It was very easy to set up with my automatic garage door opener. I would like it even better if it could be made smaller.

This unit worked perfectly! I had previously ordered a random code unit (not knowing what my garage door opener required, nor what the unit was (Random vs. Fixed) that I was ordering). My garage door opener is a Genie Blue Max (home was new in 1994). So my opener needed a dip switch (now there's a named I never knew existed) remote, as opposed to a random code remote. Anyway, this one works great, I use it when walking our dog, riding my bike, etc. I tend to keep it on my dog's leash. Works well. The little 12 volt battery is easy to purchase at any drug store's batter display area (I found Energizer).

Supplier ships promptly.

I just ordered two of these as backups for the one that I bought over 15 years ago and is still working. DIP switch technology is dated, but it is extremely reliable.

As to range, I will ammend this review as necessary when the new units arrive, but the one I have now works from a little 8 feet away from the door inside my car from the center console. If I want to open the door from the street, which about 20 feet, I have to lift out of the console to where only the windshield is between the unit and the door, which is wood.

Purchased this for my mother to take with her when she goes somewhere with friends. She had been carrying a large remote in her purse, but didn't always remember to take it plus it took up a lot of space when she did. Now we've put this small Genie on a keyring and pinned it inside her purse. Can't get lost or forgotten, easy to use, and the small size is perfect. She's pleased and so are we!

It works, but the range is no place near that of the original full size. I have to be in the driveway and I have to lift the control to get the door to open. The original remote works before I reach the driveway and without pointing it out the window.

This item preforms as stated. I was looking for a smaller unit, and this one is small enough to fit in pocket, and still work like a larger unit. I would recommend this product.

Although I think it is expensive, I needed to replace my ancient garage door opener and this little thing works well. I have it hanging right by the back door. Meets my needs.

This is a great remote for me, but it is not the "key-chain"size. It is much bigger than that. The range to get my garage door opens is short than regular remote.
