Recent world events have changed the way a lot of people are now are working. Thanks to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic many people are working from home, and if they are lucky enough, have probably taken with them a company-issued laptop. Though, if you are someone who is used to working with multiple monitors at the workplace and is unable to bring those additional monitors home, or perhaps your work-from-home area is limited in space, fear not! What you need to look at is a portable external monitor and this is where a Lepow 15.6″ portable monitor can save the day. Portable monitors, such as the Lepow 15.6″ Z1-Gamut monitor, are designed not to take up a lot of space and are easily moveable to where you need it when you need an additional screen.

The Lepow 15.6″ portable monitor is packaged in a fairly consumerized box. There is no imagery of the monitor itself on the box so it is a bit of a hidden surprise when first opening it up. The backside of the box gives you some basic information such as the diagonal size, the output ports, product name, where it was manufactured and some URLs for technical support. The monitor itself sits in a thin plastic insert with some cut-to-fit foam to help protect it.
Once you open up the box and removed the monitor, the accessories are hidden underneath. The Lepow Z1-Gamut Portable Monitor comes with the following:
- Mini HDMI to HDMI Cable x1
- Type C to Type C Cable x1
- Type C to USB A Cable x1 (Power Supply)
- Smart Cover x1
- Screen Protector x1
- User Guide x1
- Note: Please check if the Type C of your laptop is a full-featured Type C port. If it is just a Type C for charging, it will not be available.
It is nice to see a monitor come with all the included cables one might need. The added screenprotector is almost like a bonus too.
