Backlighting the DMG has very little effect on its battery life. So why is it that when backlighting the Pocket, its battery life is reduced by about 70% (10 hours reduced to 3 hours)?

It's due to the fact the original gameboy ran on 4 AA batteries and the pocket runs on 2 AAA batteries. So there is more power for the backlight to draw on.
