Connecting my Switch to a portable monitor with only one por

Recommended Posts


I would love to connect my switch to my portable monitor; "ASUS 16" ZenScreen MB16ACM". Unfortunately, this monitor only have one port (Usb-C). Therefore it needs both the data and power delivery through this port.

Connecting my monitor to a laptop works seamlessly with any USB-C to USB-C (And even USB-A to USB-C).

However - the HDMI cable from the switch dock does not seem to have any power delivery. When I tried connecting my portable monitor using a HDMI to USB-C cable, the screen didn't turn on. (No power)

Is there a way to "Add" power delivery to a HDMI signal?

Would this adapter work for example? "USB C/Type C to HDMI Adapter, Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI Hub, USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter/Converter for Mac-Book/De-ll XPS13/Sam-sung S10/S10+ with USB 3.0 Port and PD Quick Charging Port (Silver)" (Not able to post Amazon link)
