Pixel testers with remotes that require a CR2025(not included) are great mini controllers so you can test your lights. They can be used to test your RGB products that are WS2811 & many other protocols. They can also be used as mini controllers if you have some lights set up in your house or office. This tester can be used with products ranging from 5V-24V. Match your power input to your products you want to test to ensure safe operation of the controller. These mini controllers can run up to over 500 nodes.
To power these controllers you can do it in a few ways.
The easiest is to use a barrel plug available here. Which is 2.5mm inner and 5.5mm outer diameter. If you are trying to power 12V products you may find a power supply on some of your laptops, modems, or other computer products that require 12v inputs.
Another way to power them is to cut the barrel plug off of the tester and wire the 2 wires directly into your power supply.

Perfect for testing lights
Took a little getting use to but works great. Makes me want to know more about it so I can build one myself.
Great Little Tester
This is a great little tester for testing lights after they've been soldered to ensure a good connection.
Great little test controller
This was a great controller to test my new pixels. I just repurposed an old d-link 5 volt router power supply and tested a batch of pixels.
As expected and great quality
Perfect for testing
Need to test a new string or quickly test a prop, this is great. Super easy.
Great for testing
Great Works as expected
Easy Light Shows
ok so I have a learning curve happening trying to get up to speed on a computerized show. These mini units are great for stand alone props. Example I built PVC pipe frames for my windows, added the strapping they sell here for pixels and pushed pixels until they where finished all the way around. I cycled thru multiple times until I found the pattern I wanted and it looks perfect and will make my display look 1000 x better this year. good price good product easy to use, will buy again.
