If you’ve ever debated adding a portable monitor to your tech arsenal, this 15-inch USB-C powered monitor makes a compelling argument as to why you should.
If you’ve ever debated adding a portable monitor to your tech arsenal, this 15-inch USB-C powered monitor makes a compelling argument as to why you should.
We took a look at Lepow’s 15.6-inch portable gaming monitor to see whether or not it was worth adding to our setup. We were surprised to find how much we enjoyed being able to use it, and it’s small size and reasonable price makes it an excellent alternative to traditional displays.
The Lepow Portable Monitor features a 15.6-inch screen on the diagonal, making it feel remarkably similar to laptop screens that you may already be used to using, making it a great desktop companion for those who want to expand their laptop screens.
The slim size makes it extremely portable. It only weighs 1.76 pounds — just a hair more than a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and at little over 7 millimeters thick, it’s half the thickness of a MacBook Air.
Its lightweight and minimal profile make it perfect for tossing into a backpack and hitting the road.
Getting connected to the monitor is relatively easy, though it depends on your device. For example, if you’ve got a phone or laptop that can support video through USB-C or Thunderbolt 3, you’ll need one cable.
It will drain your battery fairly quickly though, so it may be worth it to power the monitor with the included USB-C wall adapter instead.
If your device doesn’t support it — like the Nintendo Switch — you’ll want to use the included HDMI-to-mini HDMI cable. You’ll need to provide additional power to the monitor when connected to HDMI.
