If you don't change the current limiting resistors, the backlight uses about
3 times more current. It is a lot brighter than original, so if changing the
resistors you could compensate.
But it has to be noted that the backlight consumption is very low. From the
voltage I measured across the resistor it should be ~2.2 mA originally.
Total consumption of the box is ~100 mA in idle mode.

I got mine from ebay, sold in packs of 12 for Nokia phones. You should look
for warm white, to avoid my blueish shade.
