Simple, elegant hack to a digital timer remote

It’s almost like cheap hardware was made to be hacked, and macpod knows it to be true.  He’s got a simple digital timer remote for a camera, but it doesn’t have an on off switch and he’s worried about wasting batteries.  After a little digging, some calculations and measurements it will actually be fine without a power switch.  But for the hack of it, he’s going to do it anyway.

What I like most about this is the art of this hack.  The research and process in the beginning, finishing up with a clean mod that probably looks like it came that way from the factory.  I recommend checking it out and paying attention to the fine details, the wet napkin taking away the dust, the flux to make sure it will stick, etc.  Well done.
