Wemax' success with its ~1-inch high Go portable projector allowed the brand to take it off Indiegogo and onto 'normal' sales channels earlier in 2022. Now, it has been able to do the same with the device's Advanced Edition. This model is the one capable of the series' highest-end specs, which include an estimated max brightness of 600 ANSI lumens.

The Ampula Inc. brand Wemax met with a great deal of acclaim and funding during its crowdfunding campaign with its Go "smart laser" projector. It was touted as the world's thinnest example of its category with ALPD technology of the time, and was also backed as capable of markedly bright and clear images even in less than perfectly dark conditions.

On the other hand, those properties may only have been achieved in the Go's Advanced edition, the 'business-class' iteration of its slim form-factor that comes in black and gold rather than the slightly cutesy white of the base model. Wemax also claims that it can play "true 1080p" video for up to 1.5 hours on its in-built battery (rechargeable via USB type-C).

Accordingly, many DLP projector fans might be glad to know that the Go Advanced has joined its vanilla sibling on the open market. It is available on Wemax' own website from now - albeit at a price of US$1,198 rather than its original crowdfunding deal level of $599.

It does at least have an introductory 10% discount code (WXA1OFFS) that is in effect from May 1, 2022. Then again, the brand also currently advertises NEWWX20 as a code rated to work for 20% off should this be the buyer's first purchase from
