Just tried the IR on a M5StickC (using esp-idf and rmt to send commands), and noticed the range is about 2 meters. Is there any way to improve it without adding hardware? (I know I can add a transistor and a IR led to get more current, I was wondering if there is a way to do so with the built-in IR led).

M5StickC - Improve IR range
Does the Env Hat cover the IR and LED?
I'd like to use the Env Hat and the IR at the same time.
From the photos, I can see the hat has a cutout where the IR led is, but I can only see it on the side where the connector lies.
If I connect the hat, is the IR and led covered by it? Or can I still use those?
