Nebula Astro Portable Projector, Kids Pocket Cinema, Mini Projector, 100 ANSI Lumens, Android 7.1, 2-Hour Battery Life (Renewed)
About this deal
The focus ring works well, although it isn't as easy to get a sharp image nor as convenient as the motorized auto-focus inside the Mars 2 Pro projector. The HDMI port makes the projector even more useful as a productivity tool if you want to plug in a computer. I do like the remote control on the phone app but it takes some getting used to, but easy enough to navigate and you don’t have to worry about forgetting the remote. Use it mostly in the evenings or with curtains closed, so brightness is still good considering it is only 100 ANSI lumens. You can also pair the projector with your Bluetooth speakers or headphones, or use the Astro itself as a portable Bluetooth speaker.
ANSI Lumens is really low, increase the brightness level to 200 ANSI lumens, helpful for projection during the day.In fact, although I had the projector already setting on the table, one of my friends asked, “Where is the projector? Astro's minimum distance requirement is just 23 inches (half a meter) with a 121 inches maximum distance.

The Nebula Astro projector is made entirely of plastic with a downward curvature on top that integrates a rubbery control panel, housing four built-in buttons and a status led to feedback low battery (flashing red) and full charge (solid green).
