Yep, 80 percent of the display power. And yes it may allow all-day power on something with, say, a big netbook battery. That's quite a different beast than the pathetic little batteries they cram into ebook reader devices.

Just for a quick example...if you have a netbook with a power consumption of, say, 8 watts altogether including 2.5 watts for the screen, and then stuff in a Pixel Qi display and run without the backlight, you'll be saving about 2 watts, or 25% total device power consumption. That's a pretty conservative estimate too for a netbook, IIRC.
