Long Ranger Xtender(tm) from Next Generation Home Products, Inc. debuts at CES.

The patented AAA-battery size transmitter resembling a silver bullet is described by Next Generation Home Product’s President Bob Dolatowski as “…the greatest thing to happen to the remote control since infrared!”

The Remote “Long Ranger” Xtender(tm) transmitter is installed in place of one AAA or AA battery inside a user’s remote control … then simply point or attach the included receiver to the components they wish to control. The included AA-size adapter sleeve fits over the AAA-size transmitter, works in almost any remote control that uses AA or AAA batteries, and effectively replaces one of the 1.5 Volt AA or AAA batteries in order to power the remote control and perform the RF transmitter function; additional transmitters can be purchased separately.

Like magic … the user has upgraded their existing remote control to the latest-generation RF remote control giving them room-to-room control up to 150 feet or more from the receiver based at their components — perfect for controlling satellite, cable, DVD, TIVO, VCR etc. and multi-room stereo speakers from other rooms inside or outside, upstairs or downstairs since no line-of-sight is required.

Ideal for home theaters, the receiver can be hidden out of sight inside entertainment centers; and unlike older remote control extenders, the user doesn’t have to attach anything to the front of their remote control nor point their remote at a particular stand-alone transmitter within a room either.

The Remote “Long Ranger” Xtender(tm) with a suggested retail price of $59.95 operates using (2) included long-life #393 button batteries — a second model uses a rechargeable battery with the charger built into the receiver. In 2003 the AA-size Remote “Long Ranger” Xtender(tm) received the prestigious Innovations Award given by the International Consumer Electronics Show in the accessories category.

Next Generation Home Products, Inc. will be exhibiting the Remote “Long Ranger” Xtender(tm) at the Las Vegas 2005 Consumer Electronics Show, at South Hall Booth #21702 inside the Next Generation Home Products Pavilion.
