Looking for an affordable way to project your iPhone, iPod or iPad to the wall?
Most of the mini projectors out there that do this functionality and include all the cables cost a fair penny.
The Optoma EP-PK-101 not only projects your iPhone, iPod or iPad quite well but it is actually quite affordable and it comes with all the needed cables so you don’t have to go accessory hunting.
Mini Projector Features
The Optoma EP-PK-101 is an iPhone sized mini projector that connects flawlessly to your iDevice and lets you project movies and more.
It features a 10 ANSI lumen brightness rating and a contrast ratio of 1000:1.
While it’s certainly not the brightest mini projector on the market (not by a long shot) it’s probably one of the best featured mini projectors around at this price level. Currently it’s sitting between $100-120 which is super cheap for a projector.
What is even better is that it comes with all the connection cables that you need to connect to your iPhone, iPod or iPad.
Note though that this product does not connect to notebook computers, PCs, PDAs, cell phones, or other devices unless the device has composite output which is a bit of a bummer.
If you’re looking specifically for an iPhone/iPod projector though, it’s the bomb. It is quite small, just 1.97 x 0.59 x 4.06 inches (5 x 1.5 x 10.3 cms) and weighs just 4 ounces (~ 150 grams).
You can get a good quality, high contrast, 60″ (1.5m) image from the Optoma EP-PK-101 which is great for personal media sharing.
There are two rechargeable batteries included, and you can get up to 1.5 hours per battery.
Mini Projector Technology
The Optoma EP-PK-101 mini projector runs on DLP Technology with an LED light source. The LED light source has a lifetime over 20,000 hours.
Compared with conventional projectors DLP projectors will last years without color decay. So you could literally run this projector for 8 hours a day approximately 9 years without replacing the light source or experiencing too much quality degradation.
