High Peak Mini Projectors offer very different features and considerations compared to traditional machines. They’re comparatively cheap. They come with built-in speakers, so there’s no need for an AVR or external sound devices. They often have apps on board as well as storage options so that they can supply the content too. And, if you’re really lucky, they’ll have a battery which means you can take them with you wherever you go.
Think of them more like the Swiss Army Knife of the cinema world. This is why portable and mini projectors are a great choice for many. There’s no need to replace your TV. Just pull out your portable when you want to go big. You can even take them around to friends’ houses for movie nights.

This is Anker’s best Nebula projector to date and also a very, very good portable in its own right. Feature-wise, it’s got almost everything one could need in an outdoor/portable projector. There’s an excellent smart platform, a three-hour battery life, a good degree of brightness and plenty of source material options.
What tops it off, though, is some really rather impressive picture quality. There are brighter machines out there but, for this price, there’s a great blend of both punch and subtlety to the image. In the right setting, it’s just the ticket.
The onboard speakers are a touch weedy but the quality and spread of sound from them is good.
Do be warned that the app platform is missing a few of the UK catch-up services, iPlayer included, but otherwise, this feels like one of the best projectors out there for taking on your travels. It’s small, convenient and very well appointed.
