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.

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 VA1655’s 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
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, and the mobile phone’s battery will be charged as one of the Type C ports is recognized as being connected to a power adapter.
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).


  • 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.

Follow the key guide that appears on the screen to select the option or make adjustments.
