DIY Solar rechargeable Wiimote

Categories: Wiimote Hack.

After getting inspired from Shawn Blaszak’s work whose video is presented below, Instructables member cbm104 tried to create his own Solar Wiimote charger.


cbm104 has presented a nice tutorial that will surely help you to build your own Solar rechargeable Wiimote. Major components used by cbm104 in his build are :

  • Solar cells – I used 2x 3v 50mA for each remote
  • Rechargeable battery  – A couple of AA type would work but I had a wiimote one with connections on the outside.
  • Diode – 100mA
  • Wire
  • Paper-clips or sturdy wire

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my
iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can
be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to
share it with someone!
