I’ve had this board for about 2 years and went through two remotes so far. I absolutely love the board. I use it everyday to walk my dog and use it at the race track on weekends.
It's worth the extra money. You get more control, and I already had a crash and this time the remote didn't break. So essentially there it paid for itself. The $30 remote is way too fragile, this one is significantly better.
this remote and the original aren't even in the same universe! cruise control is awesome! the dial sensitivity gives you tons of control. Smash the remote that came with your board( actually, dropping it 6 inches will probably break it...) and order this. You won't regret it!
I had lost my other remote and bought this one it works just fine. It’s a lot nicer than the original that came with the Breeze II. It was super easy to pair when I first bought it. It has everything the original had from 4 speed options, 4 break options, Cruz control, odometer, battery indications, vibration to let you know battery close to dead, speed, max speed . I don’t think it comes with a reverse mode that the original had
