Vamvo ultra mini portable projector 1080p review

Design

Sleek design, with touch buttons and folding lens protector; seems like a very well made product. It’s intended to be small enough to be stuffed into your pocket, not unlike a phone. 5.8 x 3.1 x 0.8 inches, 1.48 pounds.

it uses a similar rectangular build. It’s WAY more portable however due to it’s smaller size and light weight. The topside has a small LED which can indicate the status of the battery. It also has a variety of touch-keys that can be used for operation. On the left-and-right arrow icons, the “OK” button.

Ports

On the left side of the Vamvo Ultra Mini Portable Projector, you’ll find a small focus wheel, which resembles a volume scroll wheel. Beneath that wheel, you’ll find a HDMI port, SD card port, 3.5mm audio hack, Lightning connection, USB-C port, and a DC power plug.

Protective cover

The Vamvo ultra mini portable projector 1080p uses a sliding lens cover. It can be secured across the front lens with gentle pressure. Sliding lens covers are always a favorite because there’s no chance for you to lose the cover.

Supported screen size

Matching its native resolution, the minimum projection size is 15”, which makes the display comparable to a smaller PC monitor. Screen size can be stretched to 130”, making it about the same as many of the largest TVs on the market. That’s also about half-as-large as a full-sized projector in the same price range. The 0.3” DLP display allows for the projector’s distance to be between 1.6 feet and 10 feet.

Lumens

The most important factor is usually brightness. If you’re willing or able to reduce the brightness from its native 1800 lumen maximum towards the lower limits, then you could plausibly squeeze another 30-minutes of battery life out of this projector. 1,800 lumen display is enough to be played inside rooms that have subpar lighting conditions. Darker rooms provide far greater performance, and you need to keep the screen size within its lower limits.

Image

The resolution seems to be 800 x 480 which is perfectly fine for this kind of portability. There’s minor pixelation and that’s due to its 480p native resolution. Small text is not sharp but it’s readable without issues.

Battery

The Vamvo S1 Ultra Mini Portable Projector is powered with a 5200mAh lithium-ion battery. Relative to the size of this projector, that’s a fairly large battery. It really lasts more than 2 hours. It charges quickly since it only took 2 hours and 18 minutes to fully charge the big 5,200 mAh battery from a low battery warning.

Sound

The 0.3” DLP display allows for the projector’s distance to be between 1.6 feet and 10 feet. A simple 10-watt speaker would be a great companion, and could rather easily connect with the Vamvo S1 Ultra Mini Portable Projector. But if that’s not an option, the 1.5W speaker setup is passable for a small presentation among two or three people.

Lamp life

The LED used inside this projector should last about 20,000 hours before you need to think about replacing it. You’ll may notice the bulb slightly dimming around the 15,000-hour mark, but you won’t have to worry about that.

EZCast app

Once you download the EZCast app and connect your phone to it, toggling in the menu will prompt you to trust the device. Long story short- try to follow the directions first before assuming it’s straight plug and play- it is not. But if you are willing to spend 5-10 minutes to download the app, do the firmware upgrade (it prompts you automatically), and tweak your settings, you can set it up just fine.

Setup

Very simple to hook up, mount is very easy to attach and adjust. Focus on the right side makes it quick and easy to focus the picture. Touch buttons and remote allow you to change a significant amount of settings including picture brightness, color, sound, image scaling, etc.. The folding lens protector automatically shuts off the projector and turns back on when opened.
