Anker Nebula Mars 3 Air portable projector arrives with 400 ANSI lumens brightness
Anker has revealed the Nebula Mars 3 Air portable projector, due to go on sale in November. The new model was unveiled alongside the Capsule 3, which will arrive on the same date. The Mars 3 Air has a similar design to the Mars 3, launched earlier this year, but is less powerful.
The Mars 3 Air has a 1.2 throw ratio, with automatic focus and keystone correction tools. Compared to its predecessor, the new projector has a lower peak brightness of 400 ANSI lumens compared to 1,000 ANSI lumens. The light source is expected to last up to 30,000 hours, and the device uses a DLP 0.23-in DMD chip. The model uses Google TV and comes with the Netflix app pre-installed, which Anker claims is a world first for a portable projector.
A 64.8Wh battery allows you to watch video for 2.5 hours or listen to music for 8 hours; fully recharging via the DC input takes 3 hours. Ports include HDMI, USB-A and AUX, and the device has two integrated 8W speakers. The compact gadget weighs 1.7 kg (~3.75 lbs) and has a built-in handle, making it easier to transport. You will be able to buy the Anker Nebula Mars 3 Air portable projector from November 20 for US$599/£549.99/€599.99.
