80ma Power Usage on CFAX12864CP1-WGH?!?


New member
Why is it that the CFAX12864CP1-WGH has an 80ma power usage? Most other LCDs I've compared from Hantronix and Seiko, as well as the tab version of this Crystalfontz lcd only use 1.5ma. Is there any way to get them to use less power? I am considering this LCD for a portable device where battery life is important.

Please accept our apologies.

The data sheets for all of the ZIF versions of the CFAX* series of displays have been upated with the correct typical current consumption of ~1.5mA.
