I would not recommend a product that lasted only 4 months.
UPDATE: Yesterday I reported that the first of a pack of 2 had failed after only 4 months. Well, today the second one failed with exactly the same symptoms.
Which goes to prove that the quality of these units is very poor.
Do not purchase unless you only need them for a short time.
Does anyone know of a decent set of remotes ?
Having a little remote control to turn my lights on and off is an absolute godsend. I didn't realise just how handy this would be. You can program up to 4 plugs per remote and it even has the handy option to turn on and off all 4 at the same time.
You don't need a clear line of site either. My lights are plugged in to an extension lead which sits buried under my laundry bag and it works perfectly every time.
When Christmas comes and it's time to plug in more lights I will definitely use the other 2 plugs as the plug socket is hidden behind a cabinet and can be an absolute pain to try and turn on and off.
Second one just stopped working after a year - the light still turns on and off via the remote but there's no through-put power.
Quality control issue I suspect., would not recommend.
Normal battery compartments are such that the spring end is positioned against the flat end of the battery, normally negative. However, in this case, as with normal button batteries, the flat end is positive. Unfortunately, even when in the correct way there is still a problem because the spring tends to slip slightly off centre and again short circuits the battery and I suspect this could be the cause of many of the 1 star early failures.
I should have thought that a bit of intelligent design could have solved this problem before production started. However, apart from this I am pleased with my purchase.
Added after a couple of days.
I have now modified the battery arrangement after repeated failures due to the spring slipping to one side and shorting the battery . The plastic molding prohibits physically reversing the batteries so I finally removed the cover to get at the battery terminals and reversed the position of them and the soldered connections to make a more sensible arrangement and it is now totally reliable.
The only thing you have to remember is if you generally have the remote socket turned on all the time, and have a power cut or something, you have to reset the remote socket when the power comes back on as it will always be off after it has lost power. Not a problem at all just have to try and remember it.
