We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Whether you want to hook up your gaming console for a Call of Duty session on the road or you want to expand the screen real estate of your mobile workstation, one of the portable monitors on our list is sure to do the trick. These devices need little more than a power cord and an HDMI cable to give you a second high-resolution display, and some can do it all over a single USB connection. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best portable monitor on Amazon.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
