The Pico Genie P100 LED pico projector is ultra small & light (matchbox sized). This compact LED projector was designed for use on battery power, meaning you consistently get the high 85 lumens of brightness whether powering it from its inbuilt rechargable battery or the mains.
This ultra portable device is perfect for connecting to your other portable electronic devices such as smartphones, tablet computers, laptops and more with the HDMI input. Utilising the latest DLP chip technology means it provides rich colours and high contrast images from any connected device.
Compared to its rivals, the P100 is smaller, lighter, better designed with higher performance from battery and mains power. Use it in the office, at home or on the road to share your life on the big screen.
Key Unique Features
Other Main Features
Power this projector and your other devices for longer with an Energizer XP18000 external battery or the Energizer XP8000 battery. The emergency charger powers up to 3 devices at once and comes with 'Free Tips for Life' so it will always work with your latest gadgets!
Although the P100 is a HDMI passthrough device, it can be used with laptops which only have VGA output. To use with a VGA device you will need to purchase a VGA to HDMI adapter (available seperately online and through electrical retailers) and connect that to the included HDMI cable to mirror the screen. The image quality will depend on the quality of the VGA to HDMI adapter.
If you plan to connect to a smartphone via MHL cable, we recomend you check the list of MHL compatible mobile phones before purchase by clicking here
If you plan to connect to an Apple device, we recommend that you also purchase the Apple Digital AV adapter and check Apple's list of compatible devices by clicking here. The P100 can mirror almost all HDMI devices inlcuding the iPhone 4s, iPad 2/3 and iPod Touch (4th Generation onwards), please note that it will not mirror the screen of the iPhone 4 or below. It will mirror pictures and videos displayed on the device, not the full screen or Apps.
The P100 will work with Apple devices such as the MacBook Air. For this you will need to purchase the appropriate adapter (available separately, from Apple) to convert Apple's connection port (usuall the lightning port on the MacBook Air) to HDMI. You then use the HDMI cable included in the P100's box to connect it to the projector.
