A mini projector is a portable projector! It’s small and compact, and you can easily fit it in your bag or even larger-sized pockets.
A portable projector can come in various sizes – from the mini varieties to larger ones that can be transferred from room to room (but may not fit in your pocket!).
Portable projectors are often used in business meetings or classroom environments where presentations are made. You’ve probably seen one being wheeled into a room once in your life!
Mini projectors need the room to be quite dark to give you the proper viewing effect. They are effective for homes, outdoor viewing at night, and in conference rooms that can be darkened.
However, if you’ve got a more well-lit area (daytime viewing, convention centre spaces and so on), you will find a larger portable projector much better.
If high quality picture imagery is important to you, you may find the quality of a mini projector is generally lacking compared to a larger projector.
