Pico projectors are hot commodity these days. They are also expensive. However, there are ways to get a decent picture in dark environments for less than $100 if you don’t need a lot of high tech specs.
The Tronfy TP-50 mini projector is capable of projecting whatever is showing on your iPhone screen onto a wall, white screen, or even sheet and you won’t have to break the bank to get one.
The projector has a native resolution of 320 x 480 with an image size of between 30 and 100 inches. The contrast ratio is 500:1 and the distance range is between three and 10 feet (customers recommend a seven-foot optimal distance).
This device features five different types of ports, including Micro USB, VGA, SD, HDMI, and standard USB. So, your projecting options are practically limitless. Using a Lightning digital AV adapter and an HDMI cable, you can connect your iPhone 6 to project whatever is on your screen. So, whether you are playing games, watching movies, or even reading iDB, you can watch what is happening on a larger screen, even in the outdoors. Grab a power bank and take it with you camping for up to five hours of video playback.
The Tronfy TP-50 mini projector costs a mere $83 on Amazon, which is hundreds of dollars less than most pico projectors. Of course, for less than $100, you won’t be getting a business presentation-quality device. However, for watching movies in the dark in the backyard with your friends, this will serve you just fine.
