I purchased this to replace the two way lcd remote that originally came with my Coolstart RS-7 remote start. The original remote had a lot of issues from the start. It would vibrate and chirp for no apparent reason, I would have to pull the battery and replace it sometimes to get it to function, and would go through batteries like crazy. I was hesitant to purchase this for a couple of reasons. One would be strictly from the reliability of the previous remote. I also wasn't sure about a rechargeable remote, would the battery last? Will it be dead and take 8 hours to charge?
I can honestly say this remote far exceeds the original one. Reliability has been spot on! It has a better range than the original. As far as the rechargeable battery, I received it on December 31, charged it (took about 2hrs), it is now January 23 and still has 3/4 charge showing on the lcd with quite a bit of use!
I would definitely recommend this remote to anyone who is needing a replacement.
