In this article, we will show 10 recommended mobile projectors that can be used by connecting to an iPhone. Active from watching videos to presentations.

A "mobile projector" that is convenient not only for business use but also for private use such as enjoying video content such as movies. The lineup includes a variety of products, including a thin type that fits in your pocket and a model that has a long battery life.

How to choose a mobile projector for iPhone

1. Brightness projected by the projector (lumens)

Since the appearance of a projector depends greatly on the situation of the place where it is projected, the brightness (lumen) to be projected is important when selecting a product.

In particular, the degree of brightness of mobile projectors is kept low due to the size of the main unit and the capacity of the built-in battery. Therefore, it is important to select a type with a high maximum brightness (lumen value).

2. Projector battery capacity

Depending on the place and situation of use, it may not be possible to secure power from the outlet. Therefore, the capacity of the built-in battery is also a very important point when choosing a mobile projector.

The model with a built-in large-capacity battery is recommended for long-term continuous projection and use as a mobile battery. However, the larger the capacity, the less the lightness that is the advantage of mobile projectors. Choose a model that has a good balance between maximum operating time when fully charged and usability.

3. How to connect the projector

There are two types of mobile projector connection methods: HDMI port connection and wireless connection. Especially when using it on iPhone or iPad, it is necessary to check the compatibility with iOS. When choosing a mobile projector, check the connection method as well.
