The bigger screens, 9'-10" will have a longer battery life. Typically 5-7 hours as opposed to 2-3 hours on a 7" screen model.

Note, reducing the brightness of a DVD player makes huge difference in battery life.

 

  • Some manufacturers may sell extended batteries for more cordless life.
  • Is there a car nearby, see if the portable DVD has a cigarette plug in to get more life.
  • Just got back from a road trip.  The rental van DVD system made a huge difference to keep bored kids occupied.
  • Some movies may have "digital copies".  I wonder if that allows you to load the content onto flash drive so you can watch the movie without a spinning disk that would shorten the battery life.
