XScreen Portable Monitor Series Connection Quick Guide

Before we start connecting our device with Lexuma XScreen Portable Monitor Series, you may pay attention to the following notes:

1) Your connected devices cannot deliver power supply to XScreen. You need to get an individual power supply for XScreen.

2) Besides the power adapter provided with XScreen, you may power up XScreen by using other power adapter which the power output should be 5V/2A, or using a standard power bank for the XScreen, XScreen Plus (1080P), XScreen Air and XScreen Duo models. For the  XScreen Plus 4K  version, you need to get a power supply with 12V/2A output or Power Delivery function. It may damage the built-in battery if you are not using the correct power adapter / power bank.
