Terminate virtually any television!
This gadget can put virtually any television into standby mode and is tiny enough to hide in the palm of your hand, so no one knows it's you that's terminated that TV! There's nothing worse than going out for a quiet drink or intimate meal and having a TV screen ruining the experience for you. Now there's a solution! The Telly Terminate!
Small enough to attach to your keys and keep in your pocket so it's always ready to turn off televisions wherever you are. There's no way to tell it's been used, so if you're discreet enough, it'll just look like the TV has gone into standby mode on its own. Handily, the Telly Terminate also features an LED torch, which is useful on its own, but also means that if you do get asked about the Telly Terminate, you can just say that it's a tiny light that you carry with you.
Of course, being able to put TV screens into standby mode could be used for various pranks, wherever there are TV displays, but that's up to you and we'd never suggest anything like that. No. Of course not!

Not fit for purpose.
Yeah I said it, and I mean it. This wasn't a serious buy on my part, I just figured it would be a useful gadget to have on my person, so I bought it together with my Christmas shopping. But on arrival, I instantly saw it was a waste of time. It's been very poorly made, the key-chain supplied broke at the slightest jolt. After carefully reading the directions and instructions, simple as they were, I attempted to use both functions, the LED light and the remote standby. Neither worked. I changed the batteries, still nothing. I tried percussive maintenance, still nothing. There's a reason this is so cheap. I was actually kind of surprised, because usually IWOOT's little gadgets and gizmos are always quite rewarding.
The Telly Terminator looks good, but it feels so cheap and light upon picking it up. I tried it out on my home TV and after standing there with it pointed at the screen and pressing the button repeatedly it eventually registered and turned the TV off. This is supposed to be a surreptitious device. If I wanted to be obvious I'd turn the TV off at the wall.
fun, fun, fun
This Telly Terminator is unbelievable! It's the best gadget I've bought so far and I've used it almost everywhere. At the coffee shop, at the bar, the mall, a friend's house, school, karaoke event. Be careful though not to get caught, I feel like a god! It only works with flat screen TVs but who uses the old TV types anyway. I recently discovered that it's not only a telly terminator but also a telly activator! It can switch off and on any flat-screen TV. Well, that is awesome. You'll definitely want one of those!
Great for Videogame widows...
I bought the Telly Terminator as a present for my friend whose other half is married to his Xbox. Now whenever she wants to get his attention she can discreetly turn the TV off and interrupt his killing aliens/driving into walls etc without any blame being laid! Might work out more expensive in the long run though as he's planning to buy a bigger, more expensive TV that doesn't 'turn itself off' all the time...
After getting this Telly Terminator I wanted to make sure I hadn't been ripped off. Turns off virtually 'any television' eh? We'll see about that, I thought. So I walked into an Argos store and strolled over to the huge bank of TVs...Sony, Samsung, Phillips, LG, Toshiba... The perfect place to see if this thing would work. I fiddled with the Telly Terminate, contemplating the havoc I was about to cause. Should I or shouldn't I? Of course I should. I clicked the button and one by one all the TVs turned off. It was truly awesome. For the constant fun and games you will have, it's well worth the money!
According to the article, this device can "Teminate virtually any television!". I think that should say "Terminate virtually any new television made by a major manufacturer". It doesn't work on my nice, cheap Wharfdale, doesn't work on the old LG that's in the bar at the hotel I work at, but does work on the 2 year old LG in my living room. So I'm going to guess that any newer Sonys, Panasonics & Samsungs will fall victim. When it does work, the range seems to be about 2 1/2 to 3 metres, and it works better from directly in front of the TV. The LED light is, however, very reliable, and perfect for someone who works nights to find the keyhole of a door rather than turning a main light on and waking up half the house.
