Make Any TV Remote Solar Powered

For the DIYers out there, MAKE magazine has a video how-to detailing what you need to do in order to convert your standard, battery-powered TV remote into a solar-powered TV remote. The project makes use of the $18 SunMod Kit and requires rechargeable AA or AAA NiMH batteries, multimeter, soldering iron, and a Dremel tool to make room for the wiring. On the level of difficulty, I’d give this an EASY to MODERATE. As you’ll see it’s not the prettiest thing when done, but you’ll definitely boost your “geek cred” and beat out the rest of the CE industry on a product that should be on the market already. FYI, this project was featured in MAKE Vol. 25.
