Does a good gopro remote require a lifetime warranty?

Gopro Remote manufacturers offer all kinds of guarantee plans for any taste. The cheapest models usually come without any warranty. Decent gopro remote with the average price have a one-year or two-year long protection. Finally, the most expensive products are offered with the lifetime warranty. We believe that the five-year warranty is more than enough for any gopro remote. You can consider buying good gopro remote with a lifetime warranty, but such models are usually overpriced.
