Factors to consider when buying a portable car DVD player

A portable car DVD player is an excellent way to turn a long and boring trip into an exciting and enjoyable one for the whole family. However, before you head out the door to buy your portable DVD player, here are some tips to consider and help you to choose the right item for you.

The basics

Below are the must-have features that you would want your car portable DVD player to have. Essential features Car DVD screens tend to be small. Look for a DVD player with high-resolution wide screen, built-in stereo speakers, headphone jack, car mounting kit, and AC/DC adapter so that you can connect it to your car's power outlet. Also, make sure it comes with anti-skip technology to prevent image chopping as you go over road imperfections. Long battery life Most batteries in portable DVDs are good for two to three hours of playback time. Find a model with a long service life battery with up to six or seven hours that allow you to watch complete movies, as an alternative to your car’s power outlet.
