TV-B-Gone Pro SHP works the same way the TV-B-Gone key chain works, but it is way more powerful because it has more emitters and uses a bigger battery. Instead of the batman-like key chain, it comes in a lightweight case that looks like a smart phone. It is easy to trigger whenever you desire with the switch on its front. A dim visible light lets you know when the TV-B-Gone Pro SHP is transmitting (Stealth-Mode is available with double-click activation). Like the TV-B-Gone key chain, TV-B-Gone Pro SHP has Instant Reactivation Feature so that you can turn off many TVs in quick succession.

This thing is awesome, went to the mall and turned off the menu screens (which had like 3 tvs) at Cinnabon. Then I tried it on some gamers in the middle of mall, they were really into the game and then poof, their disappointed confused faces were priceless. Sorry guys...no not really. Also tried it at a BBQ restaurant while ordering to-go, turned off the 2 tvs while waiting and talking with the guy cutting the meat and he had a confused face. I also brought it to my friends house and kept turning it off, he was about to take the TV back so I had to tell him it was me.
The best thing about this is that its slim and can pass as a phone. It is best to wear a long sleeve while executing. 1 downfall from it is that it may take a bit to scroll through the codes until it finds the tv brand to turn it off. You just have to have get good at angling the device so it doesn't look suspicious. It just takes practice, its the art of the prank. There are also some tvs that have some option to always be turned "on" so no matter how many times you turn it off it will always turn back on by itself.
I have often wreaked havoc at big box stores and food courts with TV menu systems. Amazing distance and even works through glass.Hold it up to your ear and have a fake conversation and no one will suspect it's not a smart phone. The entire front panel is fake. The only real thing is the "home" button which is how you activate it.WARNING: Be stealthy. If not, you might find yourself permanently barred from a sports bar.
I was an early adopter of this product, probably somewhere around 10 years ago, at least, I got one of the first generation batman-shape keychain designs. A few years later I got a revision of the batman keychain which could be re-activated mid sequence, a nice upgrade. Can you believe the first generation, you had to wait for the entire transmission to finish to send again?
Well, I took it to Costco and Walmart for a real world test, and yeah, it's quite powerful. The IR LED emitters inside are arranged in a slight arc, so the signal pans out horizontally. There are two different types of emitters, 4 of each, I am guessing one type sends out a wide angle beam, and the other type is more focused to a narrow angle?
I was initially a little worried about some other reviews which said the product would overcharge and swell the battery, but I have not seen this. In fact , I disassembled it out of curiosity, and there is a dedicated lithium ion charge control chip inside, so that really shouldn't happen. It's good to know there is protection in the device, so maybe they just were unfortunate duds?
With a USB power dongle, I measured the charge current of this at 400 milliamps to start, with the current tapering down to zero towards the end of the charge cycle, which is in line with how a lithium battery should be charged (CC/CV). There is no LED indicator that charging is happening though, that's something I would have liked to see.
So yeah, this can be a fun little toy for the inner child shenanigans you may have in you!
It works as advertised. I usually just turn off the TVs that no one is watching. It is kind of cool to have the power to do so. A couple of times I’ve turned off the TV during an important sporting match and it’s fun to hear people say things when the TV goes black. But I have to tell you in a bar with 10 TVs if you turn off 6 or 7 that no one’s watching, no one complains In 45 minutes and so you are saving electricity For the world the carbon footprint and all that. It’s also fun to turn them back on, if it looks like nobody knows what to do
Like a moth to flame, I can't look away from a flashing and colorful telescreen. If you're reading this review, you probably already know you need one of these, but just to reiterate, the power of a simple box to kill any propaganda box in the room cannot be overstated. Have a real conversation! Be present! Kill the box! Buy 50 of these and give one to everyone you know! Be one of the free.
1: It's worked like a charm.
2: Brings me joy.
Waiting for a big sports event to use this at a sports bar. So far I've mainly hit big box stores,restaurants and some hospital waiting rooms.Got a local yogurt shop that has like 7 TV's and I'm able to hit all of them in one shot. The kids start complaining right away and the staff are scrambling to figure out what just happened.
Hit or miss. I charged it up for more than 4 hrs and tested it in a variety of out TV brands. we got Sony, Samsung, Emerson, Visio, and LG. It does worked all the time. Another thing that I found out is that there is no power indicator if the button was pressed. You have to use an android phone to look at the infrared LEDs. The LEDs were working but they don't seem to work all the time. I just returned it.
This thing really works! Wow I was surprised at the range of the signal. Loads of fun in the casinos where they have millions of TVs! I had the smaller one before but this one is much more powerful and faster too. A few years ago I took my previous TV B Gone to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES) where all of the major manufacturers were demonstrating their latest and greatest HUGE screen TVs. It was hilarious zapping all the new Samsungs and Sonys just as the large crowd was watching the demonstration! HA! (I'm sure there's a special place in He!! for me, but it was crazy funny!)
