Gechic is a relatively new company offering what it calls “On-Lap monitors”, i.e. light weight monitors that you can easily carry around. One of those monitors is the On-Lap Monitor 2501M that is peculiar thanks to its 9300 mAh Li-Po battery, which allow you to use it anywhere. You just need to connect your smartphone, camera, laptop (for 2nd display), etc… via the monitor’s HDMI/MHL/VGA inputs.
Here are the specifications of this portable & battery-powered monitor:
- Screen size – 15.6″ HD LCD.
- Aspect Ratio – 16:9
- Resolution – 1366×768
- Inputs – MHL, HDMI-D, VGA (Optional Cable Required) and audio Jack
- Battery – Li-Po 9300mAh battery
- Speakers – 1.0W (Max.) x 2
- Power – 5V/2.0A (Max.)
- Dimension – 387mm x 260mm x 12.8mm (without cover)
- Weight – 1088g (1312g with cover)
The monitor is sold with a protection cover, a Micro HDMI cable, a VGA cable, a 5-pin MHL cable, a Micro USB Power cable, a charger (5V,Max.2A), a smartphone holder, 2 stand bricks, a cable clip, one QIG, and a user Manual.
You may need an extra adapter for devices such as iPhones (using Apple proprietary crap), Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Note 2 (using 11-pin MHL).
MobileTechReview got hold of the display last month, and provided a good overview of this monitor. The reviewer claims they only needed to charge it every 2 to 3 weeks for their use (Monitoring camera output when filming).
