After more than 2 years the Adapt 305 pocket projector is now ‘end of line’ and is no longer available. Having served as one of the best pocket projectors on the market we've put together a list of the next generation alternative pocket projectors.
Adapt 305 projector was 45 lumens, VGA, Battery and £269 inc vat. :-
- Vivitek Qumi Q2 (300 lumens, WXGA, WiFi, Battery optional, i-ready) - £459: Best Overall
- 3M MP180 (30 lumens, VGA, Wifi, Bluetooth, Touchscreen, MS Office inc PPT & PDF readers): Closest to Adapt 305 and feature packed
- LumaFire M200 (100 lumens, XGA, HDMI, USB/SD): Best Value (without battery)
- Pico Genie A100 (iPhone sleeve projector case, 15 lumens DLP): Most convenient, simplest and Easiest
- 3M MP220 (65 lumens, Android, up to 2 hrs battery life, 2GB internal memory, VGA)
- Optoma PK301+
Only slightly larger than the Adapt 305 this is the best overall alternative pocket
projector. Superior image quality sets this projector apart. It’s the first of its kind to offer WXGA resolution (1200 x 800), be 720p compliant and the only one to offer 300 lumens with DLP. It’s the brightest HD ready mini LED projector ever produced and comes with all the connections and cables you will need, including extras such as free iPhone/iPad cables.
Weighing only 617g (1.4 pounds) and easily fitting in the palm of your hand, whether you want to present PowerPoint slides to 20 people in a boardroom or simply watch a movie then this is the perfect product for you.
We are currently offering an exclusive 3 year warranty as opposed to the 12 month standard warranty and a free Wi-Fi dongle as well as the option to buy and attach a battery dock (available separately from us).
If you can afford it, this is the best projector currently available as packed with so many features.

Whilst slightly larger than the Adapt 305, the LumaFire M200 still easily fits in the
palm of your hand and weighs not much more than a couple of iPhones.
Described as "awesome" by Jason Bradbury at Gadget Show Live 2011. This amazing new 100 lumen palm projector offers XGA (1024 x 768) resolution and enhanced colour technology. HDMI input allows connection to most modern electronic devices, combined with composite, VGA, USB and SD input meaning that you’re covered for almost any device.
The projector has similar dimensions to the iphone (13 x 12.7 x 4.9 cm / 5.1 x 5 x 1.9 inches), weighs just 500g and comes with a very small lightweight power pack. Overall it’s our best value for money projector, suitable for business, education, training, personal use, gaming or travel.

Charge your iPhone/iPod or simply watch TV, videos, or photos on a large screen from the built in Pico projector.
‘This is a very useful device...and a very good idea, good concept and good design. We like it.’ – Suzi Perry, Channel 5’s Gadget Show
After being awarded 4/5 stars by Stuff TV, featuring in T3 as a top iPhone 4s case of 2012 and appearing on the Gadget show as a top gift, we think that this is the perfect gift for apple users thinking of using a Pico projector.
