WEN RESTOCK?! RESTONKS TAKE PLACE APPROX ONCE PER WEEK. SIGN UP ON THE WAITLIST TO BE NOTIFIED AND TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW MANY TO DROP! ALL ORDERS ARE ESTIMATED TO SHIP WITHIN 1 WEEK FROM THE UNIT…Read More…
Well, you still need the built in IR on the flipper to program the flipper with new IR Signals as this is ONLY a transmitter. This said, when running unofficial firmware, you can turn on the "Debug IR" feature which will allow you to use this module. This will allow you to transmit at a might higher power than the built-in IR, which means you can turn on / off devices without having to point the flipper at the device directly. Advice: Don't test device in the next room while your significant other is watching TV 😂🤣
The IR Blaster is comprised of 7 high powered IR LEDs driven directly from the 5v rail. this operates the LEDs at their theoretical maximum brightness ensuring the signal is broadcast as "loud" as possible into the room. As long as the IR Receiver can see even a reflection of the IR being emitted, it should respond to the code being sent by the blaster.
There has been a little confusion on how to use this module so I wanted to put together a quick guide to help you get started:
You must be using unofficial firmware as currently the official firmware does NOT support the forwarding of IR Signals to the external GPIO Pins. I suggest Unleashed, Xtreme, or RogueMaster firmware.
You must enable "Debug" mode: go to settings ---> system ---> debug ---> ON
This is a 5v Module! You must turn on 5v to use it go to GPIO ---> 5v --> ON
After you follow the above two steps, when you enter the "Infrared" menu option, you should see an option for "debug" and then an option to send to Pin A7(2). Make sure this is selected or it will not work.
Q: The green light doesn't turn on, what's going on?
A: Make sure the board is fully seated in the Flipper, if you have a silicone case, you may need to adjust it slightly as the module is designed to fit snugly into the case. Also - Make sure you turn 5v on as this is a 5v module! This can be done under the GPIO settings. NOTE: Removal and re-insertion of the module will turn off 5v. When plugged into USB (such as a power pack) 5v is always on, and this step can be skipped)
Q: I have tried to turn on/off a TV / at a bar, store, menu, school, etc and it's not working.
A: Do not mess with devices you do not own, or do not have permission to mess with. Period. This said, if you do have permission, make sure that the device itself is working properly with IR to begin with. many systems, use RF or bluetooth instead of IR to actually communicate (I'm looking at you Fire-stick/TV) Also, try capturing an IR signal with a known working remote using the on-board IR Receiver, and then transmitting the saved signal with the blaster.
Q: The IR LEDs don't light up when I look at them with my naked eye
A: Infrared is not visible (or barely) to the naked eye. You need to "view" the IR using a camera (any cell phone camera will do). additionally, the LEDS used on the blaster, WILL illuminate SLIGHTLY red to the naked eye, if you are in a completely dark room, and I mean COMPLETELY dark.
Q: My Blaster gets a little warm after extended use, is this normal?
A: Yes, the blaster puts out a decent amount of power, and in turn creates a decent amount of heat, which is absorbed into the board. While the board might get a little warm, it should not get HOT. if your board gets HOT, discontinue use and reach out to me and I can arrange a replacement if it is deemed to be a manufacturing defect. Please note that every board is stress-tested before it is shipped and I cannot replace boards due to user misuse/abuse such as running higher voltages, illuminating the IR steady-on as if it were a flashlight, or modifying the board in anyway.
Q: RESTOCK WEN?!
A: SOON ;) - No seriously, I can only build so many of these at a time as it is a very time consuming process. Each unit is hand-made, and fully tested before being shipped, so please be patient :) I plan on restocking at least once per week, if not more often. Sign up for the Wait-List to be notified on restocks.
Q: Handmade? you mean you don't get these manufactured?
A: Yes, each and every Board is hand-made, all SMT is soldered by me, and all through-hole soldering is also soldered by me. As such, it takes time to build each and every board. Sure, it prevents me from stocking more, but it also ensures I can have a tight control on quality, and well, I enjoy it :)
Q: My order says it has been shipped, but the tracking says the USPS / UPS / DHL / etc. is awaiting the item and it's been a day or two, what's going on?
A: I work a full time job, I build these boards (and ship them) in the evenings, when the post office is closed. I try my best to get everything dropped off the following day, but sometimes circumstances (Looking at you NJ Traffic) gets in the way of me making it to the post office in a timely fashion. Just please know I make every effort to get packages dropped off to the post office at the earliest.

Thanks! We'll let you know when the seller adds shipping rates for your country.
|Shipping Rate||Tracked||Ships From||First Item||Additional Items|
GERMAN CUSTOMERS - We comply with applicable LUCID recycling requirements set forth by VerpackG LUCID identification number: DE2197487135237
While Tindie allows up to 14 days to ship, I try to ship all items on average 4-5 days once an order is received. If you need the item sooner, please leave a note in the additional comments section of your order and I will reach out / try to accommodate.
International orders - Please contact me for custom shipping options if there is no available quote displayed. Customs Duties / VAT / Taxes /Fees are the responsibility of the receiver. Unfortunately many changes have been made in regard to how customs is accepting packages, and I have seen an uptick in packages being "returned to sender". in these cases, please reach out to me and I can work with you. International shipments via USPS are shipped using "Asendia Logistics" which leverages USPS and local postal couriers in the receiving country. this often cuts down the costs, as well as the the time required to ship (For instance, Retail USPS price to Overseas is around $55 and can take 4-5 weeks.)
I work Full-Time Monday-Friday 8-6 PM. As such, I perform all shipping in the evening and when tracking information is sent out, it will show as the item is "awaiting acceptance" by USPS / UPS / etc. What this means, is that your items have been packaged, a label purchased, and has been placed in a shipping crate ready to be dropped off at the post-office / logistics carrier. If your item has not moved from the "awaiting acceptance" after 72 hours, please contact me immediately so I can send a replacement as there is a risk the USPS misplaced the package as I hand-off the packages in a shipping crate and it is up to them to scan each package one by one.
For international customers using DHL: While service IS expedited over USPS (3 days vs 3 weeks) the service points to drop off packages are not near my home, which requires a special trip to deliver them. As such, there may be a small 1-3 day delay in dropping these off. If you need the item sooner, please reach out to me via direct message and I will do my best to accommodate.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to message me and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I am able.
