    I bought several from MPJA for $2 and they have the E/L backlight on them already..
    What was your Stock Number? Mine was 6421-OP. All they need is a Controller Card and an Inverter to power the E/L Strip.

    E/L is electoluminence. It is the same as Indiglo in watches. LED backlight is what lights most Car Stereo Head units. E/L is very hi-tech looking and is the best in my opinion (blue color) LED is just normal LED's that can be yellow or Green. Both will work fine for a Car however E/L requires an Inverter which ups your 12 volts to around 115 or so at .5mA.

    yes i agree.. blue el is awesome.. i have one myself from eio.. 40x2 and it fits perfect into my dash with 5 buttons hooked to the parallel port.

    i wanted to light up my buttons in front with some blue leds... my question is... why are they (blue leds compared to red/green/yellow leds) so much more expesive?!??

    the 40x4 lcds from mpja doesn't have backlight (led or el)... i think someone mentioned it before. I may be wrong though.
