A small HDMI-capable pocket projector can be extremely useful for business and entertainment. Sales people can use it to impress their clients with effective presentation without worrying about whether there they will have the right equipment at their disposal. Thanks to its small size and low weight, it can also be placed in any backpack and used as a capable little movie projector in dorm rooms, parties, and even outdoors.
The heart of this projector is its 100-lumen bright LED lamp that is able to last up to 20,000 hours and project images up to 80″ diagonally. The projector is able to accept videos up to 1080p in resolution and project them in 480p (854×480 pixels). The built-in battery lasts up to 2 hours, which is perfect for most movies and all TV series. It can be charged with an included AC adaptor and while we would like to see USB charging functionality for use with external power bank, this solution does a sufficiently good job.
The picture quality is surprisingly very good even in somewhat unfavorable lighting condition. We were able to get a clear picture even with 60-watt lightbulb lit in the room. The same can said about speakers. They produce a warm, relatively loud sound that will be clearly hearable under most condition. Of course, you can always plug in external speakers for better audio quality.
The projector uses standard HDMI connectivity to plug into most devices out there. This includes smartphones, tablets, computers, video players, cameras, and more. When you purchase this projector, you will receive one HDMI cable and one MHL cable. One end of the MHL cable plugs into the micro USB port on your phone or tablet while the other end plugs into an HDMI port of the projector. Users of iOS devices will have to pay extra to purchase a compatible HDMI adapter from Apple.
This handy little projector managed to surprise everybody who saw it. It’s bright, last a relatively long time, and can be easily carried in a backpack or purse. It is definitely a great choice for all who are in need of mobile video projection.
