Enjoy Big Screen Entertainment with a Pocket Projector

Also known as a mini or pico projector, a pocket projector allows you to watch movies, make presentations, and share content from a single device. Due to their compact and lightweight designs, pocket projectors can be easily transported and used wherever you want to go. You can find a huge choice of both new and used pocket projectors at prices to suit a wide range of budgets on eBay.

How do pocket projectors work?

Pocket projectors work by sending out digital images like light beams via an LED or laser light source. The beamed image can be projected onto many types of surfaces. To project images, they utilise a number of components that are tucked away in their small casings, including a rechargeable battery, chips to decode and process image data, as well as optics to focus and direct images. Many pocket projectors also feature built-in speakers, so you'll have everything needed to showcase your content in one neat, compact package.

What can you use a pocket projector for?

The only limit is your imagination. You can take along your pocket projector with you everywhere you want to go. You can use it for presentations, gaming, or watching movies and TV shows. You can even use it to display holiday photos from your smartphone.

What features do pocket projectors have?

Exact features will vary according to the make and model. Some common features to look for include:

  • Bluetooth: Allows users to wirelessly stream content from their smartphone, laptop, or tablet.
  • Built-in memory: Store content directly on the projector. Some projectors also have micro-SD card slots, which allows you to expand storage capacity.
  • Built-in operating system: Smart projectors allow users to install apps on the projector, so you can watch or stream media directly from the internet.
  • Wi-Fi connectivity: Connect your projector to the internet via any Wi-Fi network.
  • HDMI connection: Connect other devices to your projector via a high-definition media input cable, including DVD players and set-top boxes.
