SunMod Remote Kit

In MAKE Volume 25, Sparkle Labs showed how to hack your TV remote control to make it solar powered. Just add a tiny solar panel and rechargeable batteries. It works with any AA- or AAA-powered remote.

Now they’ve put together this easy kit: a flexible 4.8V solar cell with soldered leads and connector pads, and double-sided tape. NiMH batteries not included.
