My only complaints are that we really could use a second remote, the remote itself has a stupid keychain attachment that is molded on (we removed ours with a Dremmel...why would anyone want to attach this thing to their keys?). The battery is also a pain to change since you have to unscrew the remote to do it, but it's one of those 12V cells that last forever so you won't be doing that very often (though prepare to pay when that time comes).
If you aren't afraid of a soldering iron you can easily change the channel assignments. Just look for the contacts labeled A0 through A3 and think in binary. Of course doing this will void your warranty, but it's a fast way to get multiple remotes for the same outlets, and multiple outlets controlled by the same selector. (There are 16 possible channels, making the "buy two sets and hope they match" approach impractical.)
UPDATE: December, 2010
The latest version of this product (as of Dec 2010) has a much smaller remote powered by a button cell battery and a small, telescoping antenna. The battery is much easier to change (there's a slide-out holder on the bottom of the remote) though I found that at first the battery wasn't making good contact and I had to re-seat it a couple of times.Read more ›
Contrary to another reviewer's experience, my units do support channel selection. Each receiver and transmitter has a 4-position slide switch on the back, allowing you to configure the set (transmitter and 3 receivers) to one of four different channels. That works as expected - you can control the same receivers from several transmitters, or you can put the transmitters on different channels so the sets are disjoint.
The transmitter battery is a standard CR2032 lithium coin cell - inexpensive and widely available. It is easy to replace - the battery holder unsnaps and slides out.
One of the transmitter units didn't work out-of-the-box. I fixed it by unscrewing the back, wiping the pushbutton contact pads with a cloth, and putting it back together. The contact pads are the same kind that are routinely used in television remote controls, so in general the reliability should be similar to TV remotes.
The transmitter has a retractable antenna - extending it gives better range.

Stopped working after a few years, still switches on, but no way to switch any of the channels off again. No support anywhere, so $70 down the drain. They were barely used at all.Published 6 days ago by Amazon Customer
