Last year, Amazon released an updated version of the Alexa voice remote that comes with devices like the Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K. It was a terrific update and it was long overdue. All Amazon did was add two little buttons, but it’s the functionality they added that matters, of course. One was a volume toggle that lets you adjust the volume on your TV up and down, and the second was a mute button. That’s it, and yet this simple change meant that many people would now be able to ditch their TV remote and use a single device to control their Fire TV player and their TV.

It’s a nifty update indeed, and you can actually buy the new 2nd-Gen Alexa Voice Remote on Amazon if your Fire TV predates the newer models that ship with one. That said, it’s a $30 upgrade and we don’t recommend getting it. Instead, allow us to introduce you to your new favorite Fire TV accessory. It’s called the SofaBaton F2 Universal Remote Attachment for Amazon Fire TV, and it turbocharges your Alexa remote. In fact, you should definitely get one even if you already have the newer Amazon remote with volume controls for your TV.

The SofaBaton F2 attaches to your Fire TV remote and extends the length at the top, adding a bunch of universal remote buttons above the Alexa button on your main remote. You’ll find volume buttons and a mute button, sure, but you’ll also get two power buttons, channel up and down buttons, an input button, and three additional buttons that are entirely user-configurable. In other words, adding this attachment means you can control your entire setup with a single remote, truly allowing you to ditch your other remotes. The 2nd-gen Alexa remote is really only good for people who only watch content on a Fire TV device. This accessory, on the other hand, lets you switch input sources and even control other devices.

SofaButon’s F2 normally sells for $40 on Amazon, but a discount and an extra coupon you can clip on the product page cut the price down to just $21.99. Definitely grab one while it’s on sale.
