Presenting with a regular projector can be a bit of a mission thanks to their awkward size and weight and need for power and input cables.
Acer’s latest portable projector, the C202i, overcomes these complications with a built-in five-hour battery and the option to present wirelessly with iOS and Android cell phones.
For those who don’t mind cables, it also connects to more traditional video sources via HDMI, and even supports devices (Mac/PC, iOS/Android devices) connected to it by USB cable.
The highly-portable projector can project at various resolutions (FWVGA native, UXGA max) and create a 70-inch screen at a projection distance of just 2 metres.
That’s more than big enough for meeting-room presentations, and its 300 ANSI Lumens brightness and 5000:1 contrast ensures images and colours come through nicely. There’s even a 2W speaker, so you won’t need to connect external speakers to showcase any videos you might have embedded in your pressos.
The primary appeal of this projector is the fact that it can be carried around quite easily, and is thus super handy for workers who travel a lot. To make this possible, Acer’s design is impressively compact and lightweight: the C202i measures 150 x 150 x 32 (mm), and weighs just 350g. Definitely not a back-breaker!
It’ll pop easily into the carry bag it comes with, too, making carrying it around super convenient as well as easy on your back.
The other value-add Acer includes is a handy tripod. This lets you arrange the C202i without the need for feet adjustment or having to balance it on a pile of books!
It doubles as a battery bank
Arguably the most innovative feature of the C202i is the fact that it can double as a portable battery, as it’s able to recharge devices connected to it over USB thanks to the built-in 9000maH battery.
This isn’t the projector to go for if you need to replace the one in the board room as it’s just too small and light to meet the projecting needs of such a demanding location.
However, if you travel a lot but still need to present to your clients, it’s a brilliant addition to your arsenal of work tools. It’s small, lightweight, does what you need from it, and best of all it doesn’t cost a lot.
