The BlitzWolf Portable Display
The BlitzWolf BW-PCM1 is an 11.6″ portable monitor designed for function and performance. The versatile screen has a number of features that other portable monitors, don’t have. This expanded ability seems to usher in a new era of portable monitors.
The Idea Behind the Portable Display
The BW-PCM1 was designed to a greater extent to use a gamer’s model for resolution at Full HD for 1920 x 1080 and auto-refresh at a range of 24 – 60 Hz. It is inexpensive and has a number of positive features and some negatives as well.
The screen needs to be plugged into a power source and there is no indication that there will be a battery option. That is not to say never, just at this time there is no battery available for the unit.
The BW-PCM1 Cons
The display is designed to be lightweight, and thin, but not the most in either instance. There is a remote control, that is convenient but requires a CR2032 coin-cell battery that is apparently not included with the unit.
BlitzWolf BW-PCM1 Portable Display Specifications
The BW-PCM1 has 2x mini HDMI 1.4 ports, 1x USB Type-C port, an audio jack, and built-in stereo speakers. There is a button series on the side of the screen for power, volume, settings, and back, which many other portable screens do not have.
There does seem to be a requirement that both a HDMI and USB must be connected to the mobile device in order to function properly as a second screen.
The BW-PCM1 can be connected to Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PS4, which is a distinct feature for a portable monitor.
Optional Sizes and Pricing

Those prices do not include internatinoal shipping though. For reference, international shipping (for 1kg) with China post adds around $39 (Zone 2) or $47 (to Zone 3) based on a shipping calculator I found on the web.
Well actually they need to be much cheaper than this. USB C carries native displayport already, and there are lots of EDP displays which can be driven with a usb c and a small microcontroller to handle display and alternate modes.
I dont know why they are using hdmi and converter chips with this products, it just creates cost.
I was looking at these earlier, they seem to support a one cable setup
Because it’s what people have on their side and people want to connect easily.

Not every owned desktop, laptop, phone, or game console came with a fully featured USB C port. That’s before you start to consider Amazon and Google TV sticks or the vast number of ‘micro’ computers such as the Raspberry Pi 4.
