Duex Lite and Duex Plus add a second sliding screen to any laptop. Very useful for multitasking, and to increase productivity.

When we want to use it, we just have to slide it out, and connect it to the monitor’s HDMI or DisplayPort output. This new version is even capable of receive the image through a USB port, thanks to its hybrid signal.
The Dual Lite version is 12.5 inches, while the Duex Plus increases the size to 13.3 inches., and it has some additional functions: an extra USB connector to recharge the laptop or rotate 180 degrees so that the screen is glued to the back. Very useful for a presentation, for example.
In both cases they have a 1080p resolution (1920 x 180 pixels) at 60 Hz.
