Amazon Cyber Monday deal: final few hours for Nebula Capsule mini projector

Think portable mini projector and it's the Anker Nebula Capsule. The great news is that this mini projector is an Amazon Cyber Monday deal. The bad news is that its time is nearly up. There's just a few hours left before these projectors are back up to full price.

The Nebula Capsule and Nebula Capsule Max are a smart, portable, outdoor-friendly projectors with app stores built-in, and they can also be used as dedicated Bluetooth speakers. Prices are still low in the UK (£240 (opens in new tab) and £370 (opens in new tab))  but it's only the Nebula Capsule that's left on sale in the US for $300 (opens in new tab). If your local cinema looks like it's going to be out of action for a while, then this is the way to add ramp up your home movie nights.

When reviewed, we praised the Capsule's "neat design, solid sound and access to streaming services". Its resolution of 854 x 480 pixels is par for the course when it comes to miniature projectors. A brightness of 100 lumens means you'll need a dimly-lit room. Not perfect but it's the best mini around.

As above but direct to the page on Amazon US.

At the original price, the Nebula Capsule got an average review score but, with over a tonne knocked off, it's an absolute steal. It's one of the best portable mini-projectors around and makes perfect sense as a cost-effective way to supersize your viewing.

It has an HDMI connection for source material and micro USB port for charging the Capsule's four-hour battery life. It runs apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer which you can downloaded from Aptoide – a marketplace that runs on its Android 7.1 operating system.

The Capsule also allows you to stream video from mobile devices through AirPlay, and there's Miracast too. Note that while it has Chromecast connectivity, its Android operating system means it can only send video, not receive it. 

If that's not quite enough portable projector for you, then the slightly higher-specced Anker Nebula Capsule Max is the place to go.

(opens in new tab)Not one we've looked at but the Max edition is the 720p, 200 lumens version of the Capsule above. It has an Android 8.1 OS, some solid app access and a 4-hour battery life.

The Anker Nebula Capsule Max is a worthy upgrade in cost considering the benefits. Display resolution jumps up to 720p, the peak brightness to 200 ANSI lumens and the OS becomes Android 8.1. It's not one we've had the chance to review but it looks decent on paper.

While the prices of these little projectors fluctuate throughout the season, you won't find them lower than today's. Remember, you've only got until the end of Cyber Monday before those prices get jacked up once more. Go grab one.
