I think you still need to connect another USB type C cable to power via wall socket or powerbank. According to the lazada reviews and the YouTube video they all did that. Without a power source I don't think the switch is powerful enough to output.

When you use switch dock to output to monitor or TV the switch dock also needs the charging cable. So logically the same setup should apply even to this portable external monitor that's how I think. Unless the external monitor was built with some special circuitry and an inbuilt battery powerful enough to achieve video output from switch without an additional power source..

Based on the lazada Q&A seller says the external monitor doesn't have inbuilt battery. So means it needs a power source from somewhere. My conjecture is that the switch isn't able to supply enough power to the external monitor. Also from what I know the switch USB type C port isn't two way charging, so it doesn't even supply power out, only takes power in.
Hi Bro, ya Iím using this method.
Switch USB C to monitor, external power USB C to monitor another port.
The monitor able to charge Switch but showing no signal den peer saving mode.
However the same monitor port can be use for PC, so I guessing my switch got issue if really can works.
