We were searching on the web for a mini portable projector and found at least four candidates worth mentioning. By “portable” we mean projectors that you can carry in your pocket, lightweight and have the plug and play ability almost instantly.
We have selected 2 DLP projectors. DLPs are better than the general projector with LCD or LCoS when it comes to high-quality large screen projection. The images are more sharp and robust.
Let’s take a look at the list.
You can get this one from Amazon and you can check it here. The projector is DLP based with LED lamp. Its native resolution is 640 pixel x 360pixel, max input resolution is 1920 pixel X 1080 pixel.
Brightness is 300ANSI Lumens. It can throw images at 0.4 to 3.5 meter. The P1 DLP projector uses 950amp at 3.7 volts.
This cube projector is pretty cute and will look compact in your hand. Also, the price is pretty low and you can move it with anywhere. The image is pretty sharp even at 3 meters distant on the wall.
The sound is not loud enough.
This is obviously a better one than the P1 DLP projector. The price is also higher. This android projector box has a handsome outlook, super portable and compact design. It can project HD images up to 150 inches.
All types of images and videos are supported as this is an Android 4.4 device. RAGU Mini Pocket Pico projector comes with 1 GB RAM and 8GB ROM.
– Built in Kodi player
– Built in WiFi
– Easy interface for plug & play to use it with your phone, speaker, laptop, and PC.
– No dedicated port for keyboard or mouse. Although there is an option to use it via USB.
If you buy it from Amazon, you will get a year of warranty, which is pretty good. Mostly the sharp image and being able to play all kind of videos including from YouTube, Netflix and Kodi made this device an awesome one.
The SK UO Smart Beam Portable Mini Projector is compatible with both iOS and Android. The black square box is pretty nice to look.
The best thing about this device might be it can easily integrate with all the video streaming devices like Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google Chromecast, Apple TV etc.
So, this can be the perfect device for using it as an entertainment tool and for office use also.
