Re: which display is best for a handheld monitoring device

The displays with the lowest power drain (best for batteries) are LCDs without backlights that have a reflective polarizer. This includes monochrome character, Graphic and segment. Most can operate on as little as 1mA of current without the LED backlight.

Re: RGB backlight possible
