I have discovered you can buy "Vishay TSAL6400s" IR-Led's from Altronics www.altronics.com.au in Australia  :D

NO YOU CAN'T  >:( >:( >:(

The guy on the phone said they were Vishay, but after hooking up I find only 20deg viewing angle so it only works when I point it direct into wiimote!

However, http://au.farnell.com/jsp/home/homepage.jsp have the actual Vishay part number as their part number, so hopefully this is the one! (didn't charge me postage either).

After blowing my second IR-Led I actually read yours and others instructions and found that 2x 1.2v batteries are not good for these parts (how I love experiential learning)  >:(

This is the same part as JCL recommends and is far stronger (100mA) than the www.dse.com.au (20mA) part

I'm going to by a few tomorrow and I think I will also invest 15c for a resistor ;)
