MHL to VGA Adapter - Black

Display the video from your Android device on your VGA monitor with this MHL Bridge to VGA and Stereo Audio Adapter from Monoprice!

This adapter uses the Mobile High-Definition Link technology to convert the micro USB output from your Android phone or tablet. The adapter has three short cables attached. One cable has the micro USB male connector to plug into the phone or tablet. The second cable has a female micro USB connector, which should be connected to a USB power source to power the adapter. The last cable has a female 3.5mm stereo audio jack and is intended to connect to an AV receiver or a pair of self-powered speakers.

The adapter supports uncompressed video up to 1920x1080p, 2-channel stereo audio, and the HDCP copy protection protocol.

The current list of MHL compatible devices can be found on the Official MHL Consortium Website.

* The Samsung Galaxy S III, Note II, and S4 require the use of an 11-to-5 pin Micro USB adapter to use a standard 5-pin MHL adapter.

NO Signal

Pros: Works with Samsung S2 cell.

Cons: Does not have signal recognition on two different VGA projectors or a VGA connected monitor.

Using MHL to VGA adapter to connect Samsung Tab 4 to projector. Charges well. Does not allow signal to be transferred from tablet to projector. Will allow signal from Samsung S2 cell to project and display on monitor. Seems to be a durable quality device.

Pros: Hard to say if I can't get it to work.

Cons: Doesn't work. Hooked up to Samsung notepro 12.1 to vga projector and the projector doesn't see it and no image is produced.

For a device like a tablet you may need an item such as this for better compatibility.

Let me know if you need to set up a return on this item. Thank you!

Pros: the item was received in less than a week and works great

This was one piece needed to use my Galaxy S4 as a video test pattern generator. It works great. Now all I need is a better test generator app

Works well with one exception

Pros: Works well converting signal on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition with the recommended 5pin to 11pin Micro USB Adapter for MHL Adapters and Samsung Galaxy SIII & S4. No trouble communicating between tablet and VGA projector. Build quality seems solid.

Cons: None really. I did have trouble with the female 3.5mm jack at first I could not get the male speaker jack to fully engage, but firm pressure (more than I've had to use with other jacks) worked. Once you figure this out, there are no cons.

It works flawlessly and as advertised. Thanks Monoprice!

Samsung S4 to 5/11 pin adaptor to MHL to VGA

  • Nitchvideo,

Pros: It is very handy for testing all kinds of video hookups.

Cons: To many connections. A fundamental flaw in the design 5/11 converter I need to hook this to my S4 is the length of the plug that goes into the phone is to short in many cases (manufacturing variation). The length as designed works every time if you have the phone with no protective cover. In fairness the plug is not actually to short the body housing the adapter is to large and interferes with the connection. I suspect the vast majority of failures involving the 5/11 converter are just this issue.

When I get it working it will be very useful. I got the MHL to VGA and the MHL to HDMI adapters to use with my Samsung S4. I bought two 5/11 converters knowing I will loose or break one. The MHL to HDMI works fine. I could not get the 5/11 converter to MHL to VGA to work. I tried both my 5/11 converters. Comparing the MHL to HDMI units MHL connector on the 5/11 converter it was obviously to larger to fit it int allowed space in most protective cases.
