    I don't sell many of the Napco 4 button remotes, but I do have one setup for
    one of the test/training system in my office. I keep the remote on my
    keychain for realistic demo operation when a client is interested.

    Anyway, I went for a wade in the river saturday to straighten my boat on the
    trailer when we were pulling out after a bass tournament, and of course I
    forgot to take everything out of my pockets.

    The stuff in my wallet was no big deal. Some gas station stamps got stuck
    to one of my credit cards, but otherwise no problem. In my other pocket was
    my keyring along with the remote. Of course it hasn't worked all week. I
    decided to open it up and see what batteries it takes. They are friggin
    spot welded in place. NOT REPLACABLE. My question then is, "what is the
    battery life of this remote?"

    I can't very in good faith sell an expensive remote to a customer knowing it
    will die and have to be replaced in a short time.

    Although I don't have specifics on Napco keyfobs if they are like any others
    I've worked with they should last 4 to 5 years depending on useage
  3. The newer keypads now have replaceable batteries. I think Napco will
    replace the old ones if asked.

    Gas station stamps?? You mean like Green Stamps? They still give those
    What's it made of? Those little lithium batteries should last 8 to 10 years
    I would think.
    I bet the remote will be broken or wear out before the battery does.
    Nice boat.
