DIY TV B GONE built into a Nokia phone case

Posted on Friday, June 1st, 2012 in project logs by DP

Exapod built the USB IR Toy on a DIY PCB and programmed it with the TV B GONE firmware. To give it a stealth touch he stuck it into an old Nokia phone case. It’s powered by the phone’s battery, which runs 4 IR diodes for extended range and usage time.

…found an old nokia around the house and use the case for the tv b gone. The circuit is similar to the adafruit kit’s one, i use the phone battery that is a 1000 mAh Li-on. The switch is under the number 7.

The range is incredible bigger than anything i build before, it passes glass, and in a store is super funny. In the future i will add a switch so i can choose wich code to send, european or american.

Via the forum.
