@volt4ire And one can just use rechargeable AA batteries, which I think would be even more sustainable

@laggard @volt4ire Seriously, just shipping regular remotes with generic rechargables would be a better step forward than solar panel + integrated battery. And that sets aside the whole "wait, this TV is supposed to only last 7 years?" much bigger problem.

@volt4ire They had remotes in 1956 that didn't even need batteries and we've been powering calculators with solar panels for years, so I'm honestly surprised that this is what's being pushed as the state of the art.
