This technology consists of fluorescent tube connected to the high voltage inverter board for backlighting and consisted of sometimes 2 bulb with 2 inverters. These are thicker and heavier and cost less by having shorten life span.
- LED (Light Emitting Diodes) backlight: LED technology is the most popular technology used in the laptops. LED's use a strip instead of tube. LED backlight does not use inverters. It is now very much used in mobiles and laptops. It has an advantage that it is smaller in size and consume less power than CCFL backlight. LED's having a longer life span and are more expensive.
