mirroring laptop on a monitor in the troll pit

When adding a monitor in the troll pit. Do you just get a long enough HDMI cord and a standard monitor? The monitor will be in a box and somewhat protected. Or are there more waterproof options?

thanks for any thoughts.

You will also need a power source if it's a 120v AC monitor. There are monitors available that use a USB cable and 12v DC power. Google "USB monitor", and pay attention to the brightness specs. The cheapo ones are not typically very bright.
