External antenna

Hello forum,

is there a way to extend the BT range with an external antenna or is it a better idea to change the firmware?

Thank’s a lot!

Why would you do that? To drain the battery faster? What do you do via Bluetooth, that needs more range?
As you can read in the blog, it was a challenge to create the antennas the way they are. I don’t think you can just use another antenna without deeper knowledge and outsmart the flipper developers.
(since you’ve posted in the NFC forum, this should be close enough: One step away from finishing hardware, can’t find the other antenna article at the moment.)

Would like to be able to see more peripherals/slaves in my surroundings :slight_smile:

You can’t even scan for BT devices with flipper at this point … Unless you want to use BT Keyboard/mouse over a long distance … and this is the NFC section of the form anyway so if you want to extend NFC range you are out of luck as well … Flipper was not made to scan the cards of the ones living several houses away …
