An artical in USNews claims plasma tv's use 3 times the power and LCD 75% MORE power than the old picture tube type. (Just for those who need the boob tube while dry camping).

Yes, I guess that fluorescent lamp uses up more power than one would expect. Wait for the LED panels.

I also heard that LCD TV's use about 8x the power of a tube TV that might be another problem with my battery's.Has anyone heard this?
