Recommendation: meh 4.3 / 5 from 63 reviews

This thing sucks. $35 is a ripoff and as you can see from some of the Q&As, only certain batteries work. The positive terminal on some (most) batteries is too wide to make contact with the terminal connector on the battery pack. I only realized this though after I tried to fix mine and snapped off one of the terminals. So now I have to spend another $35 to replace a part that is basically a low budget radio receiver and battery box. Thanks Lego! Great design!

Recommendation: no 3.89 / 5 from 35 reviews

Even though I am extremely satisfied, although my LEGO Train fell off, and sometimes, the battery box came off, and shut off. After it falling off about 12 times (no exaggeration), it wouldn't work, even when it had fresh batteries just put in it.
