Medl Tech Panel: Portable LCD Monitor Runs on Battery Power

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 23, 2010

I am a rather messy geek. I drink lots of Dr. Pepper and hate to get up while I work, which means I tend to accrue many cans on my desk throughout a day. Back when I used dual LCDs, that means that I ran out of room for junk on my desk fast so I moved to a larger single LCD.

Portable LCD Display

In some cases, a single larger LCD isn’t ideal, like when you work form a notebook. A second LCD is the only option for many notebook users and MEDL Technology has a cool one. Their portable screen is 13-inches diagonal, and uses a bright, energy-efficient LED backlight. The screen resolution is WXGA and the display connects to Mac or PCs with a single USB cable.

The screen weighs 2.2 pounds and has a battery inside letting you work away from outlets. Once work is done, the screen can also hook to your Xbox or PS3 for some gaming or movie watching. Pricing is unknown at this time, but you can sign up here to be notified when the MEDL Panel is available for sale.
