im having problems with my homemade ir pen, the wiimote cant track the ir LED when i point it onto the monitor i power my IR pen with a 1.2v AAA battery.

Is there any way to reflect this or do i need a more powerful powersource?

What IR LED are you using?

Maybe the wavelength of the IR is not suitable for the Wiimote.
