Pogo Products' new EZPower Universal remote looks great. Not because its a universal remote, which replace the convenience of a few different remotes with the nightmare of figuring out how to program an all-in-one device, but because it takes no batteries at all. Instead, give the knob at the bottom a few turns and you'll have enough juice to power the EZPower for a week at a time. Even better? It's only $25. We'll take it (and never program it).
