But its hardly a big deal. I mean I personally am unlikely to do that, even if it were using that tiny trickle of juice.
Somewher in this groups history is pictures of a PEz that has bee dissasembled. In that group is a screen that is clearly detached. There is a image on the screen (STILL).
No power needed except to make the screen CHANGE
