 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I'm looking for an ultra lite weight display for an arduino. I'm currently using a 16*2 LCD (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9052) which consists of a large chunk of glass which pushes the weight up to over 35 grams.

Anyone know of anything lighter? I don't need anything bigger or better, 16 * 2 characters is plenty, it's just the weight that needs to change. I guess it's likely to be some form of thin film flexible OLED display or something similar, the weight needs to include any chips/controllers required to use it.

any suggestions?

Thanks

Here is a 1.8" display it weighs 12.5 grams and has a micro card slot on back.
Good viewing angles, not bad in direct sun. Quite easy to use.

Thanks, that looks ideal, but where did you get the figure for weight from? I can't see it anywhere n the spec. Or have you got one in front of you?

Cheers

After reading your post I weighed one of them on my digital scale.
