Power Supply Detection

This product will detect if the power supply device is an adapter, laptop or mobile phone.

  • If the power source is an adapter or notebook, the default brightness value will be 100.
  • If the power source is a mobile phone, the default brightness value will be 15.
  • When using a mobile phone to power the monitor, the default brightness level will be 15.
NOTE: Due to the limited power output of the mobile phone, do not adjust the brightness level higher as this may cause the display to flash or shut down.

Power Delivery - Further Information

Due to the design please note:

  • The first connected device will be the main input signal.
  • When a Type C port recognizes an external device as a power adapter, it will only distribute the power. It will NOT display the input signal.
  • Only when one of the Type C ports is recognized as a power adapter can the other one deliver two-way power.

If a laptop is connected first to the VA1655, then a mobile phone is connected second, the mobile phone’s battery will not be charged as neither Type C port recognizes the connection as being connected to a power adapter.

NOTE: If you want to display the mobile phone’s screen, you must unplug the Type C cable connected to the laptop.

If a mobile phone is connected first to the VA1655, then a laptop is connected second, the mobile phone’s battery will be charged as one of the Type C ports is recognized as being connected to a power adapter.

NOTE: If you want to display the laptop screen, you must unplug the Type C cable connected to the mobile phone.

Due to the VA1655’s design, do not connect two laptops or one laptop and a desktop computer at the same time. This can cause power distribution conflicts, resulting in flashing screens or the forced shutdown of the laptop(s).

NOTE:
  • If the laptop has a Type C port, please connect via Type C to the VA1655.
  • Do not connect the other Type C port of the VA1655 to another laptop or desktop computer via Type A and HDMI at the same time.
  • If the laptop only has HDMI and Type A ports, please connect via HDMI and Type A to Type C to the VA1655.
  • If the power output of the Type A port of the laptop is not greater than 10W, please use our power adapter to connect to the VA1655.
  • Do not connect the other Type C port of the VA1655 to another laptop or desktop computer at the same time.
