Aegis IR-HP5

The new Aegis IR-HP5 is the coolest infrared product for the 200LX that I have ever seen (and I've seen lots). The IR-HP5 is a serial infrared adapter made for connecting your HP 100/200LX to a desktop or laptop via the palmtop's built-in IR port. It works at 57600 bps so is the perfect hardware companion to the popular Transfile Win200 software distributed for free by Hewlett-Packard. (It also works great with the HP Connectivity Pack.) You can plug the IR-HP5 directly into your laptop or desktop's DB-9M serial port or connect through a cable. (A 6 foot DB-9M to DB-9F cable is included with the adapter.)
Cool! It works with Linux. As a bonus, the IR-HP5 also works very nicely with Linux and either lxtools or LXFileman. Setup is simple. Just use setserial to make sure your serial port is set for spd_hi. With the 200LX pointing at the IR-HP5, the Filer will answer commands from your Linux box via infrared!
The IR-HP5 is constructed inside a DB25-DB9 adapter shell so is very small and only weighs a few ounces. It will make a great addition to your Road Warrior Kit.

Price: $29.95 plus $3.50 for 3-day Priority Mail (In the United States only. International Air Mail is $6.00.)
