Sony VCD Remote Control Mod - Ultra bright LED torchlight

This is a neat Sony VCD/TV player remote control, now retired because VCD players has longed been replaced by DVD players that also play VCD movies.

The good thing about this remote control is that is uses two AA size battery. This makes it very useful for powering a ultra bright LED as the battery will last longer when compared to a AAA battery.

I decide to convert the remote control to a single ultra bright LED torchlight. The result is a nice convenient torchlight that lights up when any button on the remote control is presssed. No more fumbling in the dark looking for the button. And you can lose it also as the remote is larger than a normal pen light. The next few post shows the process and the result.
