Q: I am looking for a portable (7-10 inches) screen/monitor that I can plug an external hard drive into and play videos. It doesn’t need to really do anything else other than just play videos from a hard drive through usb 2.0. Suggestions?

 
 

Things to look for in a portable TV

Q: The portable hand-held TV’s that I am looking at all run on battery power. I am wondering if the battery is dead if I can plug them in and they will work while also recharging, much like a laptop?

The reason I ask is I want to get something in case we lose power due to a hurricane.

A: The first big thing everyone needs to remember is that we have switched from analog TV to digital TV so you need to make sure you get a digital TV. Technically stores are only allowed to sell digital TV’s so this is only an issue if you are buying a used TV from someone on a site like ebay or if you are planning on using an old portable TV that you have had for a few years.

Will a portable hand held TV run on an AC adapter? 

by on June 18, 2010

Q: Portable hand-held TV’s all run on battery power but will they work on an AC adapter? There is nothing said they will work using it although it is obvious that the AC adapter will charge the batteries. The problem is that Batteries last about 2 hrs. I live in a hurricane prone area and I need another power source until I can get a generator going or the power comes on. Can you tell me if they will work using AC power?
