A second monitor might be a must for productivity. When you’re on the road it can be difficult to get much work done without one. With the BladeX Monitor, that’s no longer a problem.


The 1080p portable monitor offers a 15.6-inch display that can help turn your smartphone into a laptop. Or, you can simply use it as a second screen. BladeX has an extremely slim 4.5mm profile so it fits comfortably in a laptop bag or backpack. It has a built-in battery boating three hours of continuous use, and it connects to your device through an HDMI cable, USB-C or 3.5mm jack. Not only can you use to it to work, but it’s great for gaming, too. The BladeX Monitor doubles as a screen for your PlayStation 4, Xbox, tablet, Switch and more.


The monitor can be positioned in three different modes: landscape, portrait, and studio. Landscape mode is perfect for creating added workspace, while portrait mode makes it easy to read. Studio mode allows you lay the monitor down at a smaller angle for more comfort while watching videos or playing games. BladeX also contains a touchscreen so you won’t even need a mouse.


If that’s not enough to suit your needs, you can upgrade to the BladeX Pro. The Pro elevates your experience by offering 4-K viewing on the same slim design.


The base version of the BladeX Monitor is set to retail for $359. First shipments are expected to begin soon, so check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.
