FLEx Lighting and their website aim to solve big problems when it comes to using mobile devices in the field. Improving the battery life of our devices remains one of the tech industry’s biggest challenges, and the most inefficient draw on power comes from the display, more specifically, the backlight that illuminates most displays. On most devices the backlight is as powerful as a car headlight, and uses most of that energy fighting light sources it could be using.
The only screens that don’t fight the sun are ones with reflective displays. Displays that use Reflective LCDs and have a front light system (e.g., a FLEx system) can use sunlight or any ambient light in a room to illuminate the screen, and also have their own light for low-light conditions.
