The Lowest of the Low Power

Do you need a display that draws the lowest current possible? Want long lasting battery-powered LCD project? Well, you have come to the right place. We compiled this list of digital displays that consume the least amount of power. These displays are perfect for when you are trying to extend the battery life of your product by pulling the least amount of current possible.


Low Power ePaper

Other than a pen and paper, ePaper provides the lowest power consumption available for electronic displays. It does this via an electrochemical process that requires zero power once the pixels are in their desired location. These displays are ideal for when the content is not updated very often. Low-power ePapers only use power during updates, so the longer time between updates, the lower the power consumed.

A selection of our ePapers is below, or browse all our ePaper displays.

Low Power OLED Displays

The beauty of OLED displays and power consumption is that OLEDs only draw current for pixels that are on. For instance, when displaying a black and white checkerboard pattern, an OLED display consumes 50% less current than when displaying a completely white screen. Keeping that in mind, user interfaces can be designed to conserve as much power as possible by limiting how many pixels are lit.

All the OLEDs on this list consume less than 15mA MAX supply current, but have varying voltage requirements.
