  • Whats the longest battery life on a portable projector?

    If you're looking for a projector that can run by itself all day long without mains power then there are not many options out on the market to choose from but it can be done.

    There are quite a few pico projectors these days with battery power lasting 1 to 2 hours and some even last 3 hours. But there are a few catches

      1. The brightness on some models can drop by as much as 50% when switched from mains to battery power. This applies to Qumi, Optoma and other brands. Brands like the PIQS and the Pico Genie tend to drop the least
      2. Battery capacities vary from model to model eg the Pico Genie M550 Plus has a 13000 mah battery without it being too heavy a projector and any drop in brightness is hardly noticeable to the
        eye. The next closest is around 8000 mah on Qumi products.

    What do you do after 3 hours and the battery goes flat? The best option here is to invest in a portable battery that's designed for pico projectors such as the Qumi battery. This offers 18000 mah of additional power so on the Pico Genie M550 Plus it easily double the battery life to 6 hours and over 8 hours if run in eco mode.

    The Qumi battery is compatible with projectors with the following DC 16v to 20v, DC 9v to 12v. 

    It also works to charge other equipment like phones and tablets via a USB output as well as a 19v input.

  • Large Audience Bulb-Free Laser 4K 5000 lumens with 5 year warranty: Casio XJ L8300HN

    If you need a super bright projector for an exhibition, hall or corporate environment but dont want to spend a fortune on maintenance or replacing bulbs then this laser true 4k Casio XJ L8300HN might be the projector for you.

    The video below shows Alan Garratt from Casio demonstrating the Casio XJ-L8300 projector at ISE 2019 so you can see what this projector looks like in reality.

    Alan explains that connectivity wise it has everything anybody could ever want. The image quality is superb even under bright exhibition lights and the image can be increased significantly beyond the size shown here.

    The projector has keystone correction and a huge lens shift option which means you wont have hassle installing it.

    In addition it has a 5 year warranty (or 10,000 hrs usage) and is pure laser rather than LED so there are never any of the worries lamp projectors suffer from with images going dim mid presentation.

    As Alan explains, another real plus point of the Casio XJ-L8300 is if you need to install the projector into an inaccessible area then you can do so without the worry of needing to get access to the projector again to replace bulbs or carry out any maintenance.

    This projector is great for schools, churches, museums, halls and businesses with a keen eye on great 4k image quality without the cost and hassle of maintenance and bulbs. For many organisations, once the time factor of downtime is factored in the Casio XJ-L8300 becomes a no-brainer with its 5 year warranty despite its large price tag - after all time is money!
