Playing your PlayStation 4 on the go can be a tricky and cumbersome experience, but it doesn’t have to be thanks to portable monitors. While it won’t be portable in a handheld sense, you can make it far more comfortable to not only pack up and travel with your PS4, but also play it anywhere you can find a power outlet.
We’ve highlighted these monitors based on some factors including portability, ease of use, and resolution.
Lepow 15.6 portable monitor
A portable, crystal clear option
Want a bigger screen without breaking your back to carry it? This 15.6-inch, 1920×1080, Full HD, IPS monitor weighs in at under 2 pounds — 1.76 to be precise. Thanks to the included screen cover-stand, you have one and a half fewer things to worry about when packing.
Kenowa Portable Monitor
This Kenowa portable monitor is 15.6 inches and has a resolution of 1920×1080. It also has a dual HDMI input, headphone port, and built-in speaker. You can power this device through the USB port or directly connecting the power cable to the wall. It even comes with its own leather carrying case!
ASUS Portable Monitor
A tiny, powerful choice
Here we have another 15-inch monitor, this time from Asus. The monitor supports up to 1920×1080 resolution, so you’ll be able to play anything here with crystal clear graphics. It’s powered by the USB port or provided power cable.
Fast-paced response time
This is a Goldilocks of portable screens with an 11.6-inch IPS panel, a resolution that supports up to 1080p, and a 14ms response time. It’s not too big, not too small, and the response time is just right. With a display and response time like that, it won’t be “Game Over” due to delayed input.
In many respects, the GeChic 1102l is quite similar to the 1101P with its 1080p display, though its claim to fame is a big screen and built-in speakers. This means you only need one power outlet to enjoy your games on the go.
Elecrow 13.3 Inch IPS monitor
A budget choice for those looking to save
Elecrow’s 13.3-inch 1920x1080p monitor has a built-in kickstand and two HDMI ports. It doesn’t have its own power supply, but it does have a USB port that an average 20,000 mAh battery capacity power-bank can fuel for just over five hours. Or you can use the AC adapter.
