  • NEW: Aiptek PocketCinema V150W Review

    The Aiptek PocketCinema V150W is a tiny pocket projector that packs a surprising amount of features into its tiny dimensions. It's only 2.5cm thick, weighing just 285g, but despite this tiny size still offers 100 lumens of LED brightness as well as up to a 2 hour battery.


    That's impressive enough, but it gets even better when you look at the extensive list of connectivity options this tiny unit has. The V150W has built-in WiFi, allowing full wireless mirroring of your phone or tablet, as well as an array of connection ports for wired connections in the back, including HDMI, USB, micro USB, micro SD and even a VGA port, as well as a 3.5mm jack for connecting external speakers. The V150W does have 1W speakers built in which are perfectly serviceable for presentations or quiet environments but it won't give you that booming home cinema feel.

    Amazingly, the V150W also has 2GB of internal storage and an inbuilt document reader so you can load content onto the projector itself and project without an external source. The document reader even works with .pdf and .ppt files, so you're not restricted to saving your presentations as image files.

    If that isn't enough, the projector ships with a wealth of accessories, including MHL cable, HDMI cable, AV cable, and a carrying pouch, so everything you could ever need comes in the box!

    Overall, it's a powerful tool for presentations or getting a big screen for your home cinema. Granted, it's not as bright as the Pico Genie P200, however it makes up for that with a huge range of features and connectivity options that not many other projectors of this size can offer.

    Customer reviews:

    "I wanted a versatile decent projector with wireless connection and came across this neat projector.
    First thing is the size , it is small and very compact. I was pleasantly surprised how good looking it is.
    The other surprise was the carry pouch and complete set of cables so no extras to purchase.
    I charged the battery for 8 Hours to condition the battery, but after this it only took a couple of hours to recharge.
    Picture quality is good, the focus wheel/lever on the side does its job very well.
    The picture is bright ,colourful and sharp.
    I loved the app for my laptop pc and my android device. Setting up the wireless side of things was short and simple.
    Click on the app , put the number key in and job done.
    The advantage of the wireless connection for me is that the sound can be switched to blue tooth via the laptop.
    My sound bar with base box added to the cinema experience and works a treat.
    All the cables are provided yet I havnt needed to use them yet. This is such a bonus to be able to sit the projector down on a shelf or coffee table without tripping over or fussing with cables. I will try my dvd with the HDMI at some point , but I have stacks of converted movies on my hard drive.
    I am very pleased with this projector for its looks and wireless connection . The picture quality for movies works for me.
    I would recommend this neat projector if you're looking for a pocket type projector." - Amazon customer

    "So this little piece of tech is amazing, it is really bright in a well lit room , the focusing wheel is sturdy and leads to a crisp image ,and the menu is very intuitive. Having had a little play with the progector I inserted a 128 gb sd card and it played all of my movies no problem. The on board speaker is very clear and loud not tinny at all ,but I did install my wi fi which can give you a wireless sound source if you need it. As the other reviewer indicated , you should give the unit a full charge but you can still use it with the adaptor. It comes with most of the leads that you are likely to use and the charger has all of the required USA euro GB pins . There is a tripod base that I tried using my quality tripod that I purchased from poundland , and it worked perfectly. The remote control is a useful feature and you don t have to go far to produce a large image . So all in all a really quality piece of equipment that outshines all of the others I have used. So if you take the plunge you should be pleasantly surprised." - Amazon customer

  • What Is The Smallest Image I Can Project?






    Want to know the smallest size image your projector can create?

    Most traditional projectors struggle to project anything less than A4 size images whereas the Pico Genie range of projectors can project ultra small images as low as 12cm x 12 cm in sharp focus with an ultra bright image just 10cm away from the screen.


    Here is a contrast of the Pico Genie P50 Pro projecting at 12cm square versus the A4 standard image (45 cm away).


    20150923_103547 20150923_103657

    It’s ideal for artists or anyone wanting to use a projector for creative installations in small places as the projectors are not much bigger than match boxes and have good battery power as well.


    The Pico Genie P100 is also very popular with artists and used for installations in museums and visitor attractions around the world or for creative pieces hidden inside sculptures.

  • Taking a ride with the stunt cars

    We visited the Toys for Big Boys Show this weekend in Dublin which was an interesting mix of electronic products ranging pocket projectors to the usual remote control helicopters as well as some other products you really wouldnt expect to find at the show such as candles, chocolates, make up artists and fortune tellers.

    Pocket projectors were very thin on the ground at the show although there were some interesting mixes of projectors with DVD hi fi, projector camcorders and even kareoke projector machines.

    We had great fun at the event arena where we took a ride with a drifter car and sampled the bikers wall of death.

    We had a great time riding in the specially converted drifer cars and took a ride with Mike who showed us how to spin a car around a car park.

  • The Perfect Pico Accessory: Aiptek all in one HD Camcorder, HD Still Cam and Web Cam

    Aiptek HD Camcorder / HD Still Cam / Webcam


    The Aiptek Camcorder AHD C100 a great 3-in-1 gadget offering high quality HD video, a web cam and excellent HD still pics. Its quite a unique gadget with good value for money at £99 plus its simple to use and provides excellent video/picture quality, portability and pico projector compatibility. It also syncs perfectly with Aiptek pocket projectors providing instant playback without the need to use a PC to convert video files.

    If you haven't bought a video camera in a few years you will be impressed just how small and light these devices have now become, not to mention the value they offer. The last camcorder I bought was a few years ago and it cost £600 and its staggering to think this £99 camcorder offers better picture quality, is far lighter and much easier to operate. The ability to use SD cards to hold video footage also makes it very easy to record and store a large amount of video on high capacity HD cards.

    A key feature of this camcorder is its simplicity and ease of use, in fact even your Grandad could easily operate this device as there are only 3 buttons and the menus are childs play.

    SD card with USB


    The AHD C100 is similar to other devices such as the flip cam which is also very popular due to its simplicity. Whilst the flip cam uses a flip-out USB stick to transfer content from one device to another the Aiptek AHD can take advantage of folding SD cards which transform into a USB stick. Thus you can easily transfer not just to a PC but to a whole range of devices including cameras and pocket projectors. This also means you benefit from wireless connection so there's no hunting high and low for that cable with the right ending to fit the camcorder!

    Aiptek Pocket Cinema


    One of the best features of this Aiptek camcorder is it's the perfect accessory for the Aiptek range of pico projectors as it syncs perfectly between both devices. Compatibility between Aiptek devices means there is no need to convert video files on the PC prior to watching them. Simply press record on the camcorder and then take the SD card out and slide it into the Aiptek Pocket Cinema (V10 or V10+) and the video will playback instantly on the projectors 50" screen. This is great for quick and easy playback, especially if you've just taken a video and need to play it back to a large group. It would be ideal for training, education, learning and development. Its also possible to connect a cable and playback in real time so you can record your friends doing karaoke down the pub and play it back in real time onto a large wall! Also great for weddings, so people can record content cheaply during the day and then easily play it back later.

    Project without wires or laptop


    Connectivity is also good and it comes with all the cables you would expect to playback video on your TV. If your looking to upgrade your webcam as well then this would be a good solution too as its simple to connect directly to the laptop/pc.

    To find out more visit www.personalprojector.co.uk where the product is available for £99 and can also be bought as a package with the Aiptek V10+ and folding USB/SD card.

  • Aiptek T20 Pocket Cinema Projector
