The device can be charged quite simply, through its micro-USB port you can plug to any standing devices.

The Magnasonic PP60 does come with an internal audio speaker so you can hear the sound component of your video, but given the hardware limitation, it instead allows you to make use of the 3.5mm headphone jack to connect to other sound devices/speakers to make sure your audience can hear the audio, should you choose to do so.

These amazing features are packed into a sleek package with rounded corners and a glossy black finish that makes it so stylish yet simple. Near the lens is a simple focus wheel so you can adjust the same to your liking. The interface on the device is also user-friendly and allows the user to instantly turn on or off the device by a switch and to increase or decrease the volume through the typical buttons on the side. The projector also has a peg that allows it to be placed on top of a tripod that comes with it; to make sure your device is stable and even when you’re projecting.
