Controlling TV, HiFi, DLP and similar IR controllable stuff is easy and fun from a smart phone using previously built smart remote, until it runs out of battery. Despite that Bluetooth Low Energy device (smart remote is built on it) uses so little of it, the battery will eventually run out. To overcome that, the old device was improved by adding a solar charger. Now the device runs from a Lipo battery and includes a solar charger, thus it should newer run of battery ever again. For housing this new remote and a solar panel some case is needed. As usual, the case was designed and 3d printed. Here are some photos of the case and its internals.

The solar version is now available on the Tinde, the source code and models are at the Github.
