  1. Jaded Regrets

    I own the original 500 lumen nebula mars, and was always interested in the capsule, but the 480p and the inability to use usb otg and charge it at the same time, made me hold off on it.

    So what do I think? The only reason you should choose this 600$ (value w/ tax) projector is if you plan and moving it alot! and you need the smaller form factor.

    Its true that this is the smallest form factor available for a portable 720p projector, but you can get the Nebula mars Lite (300lumen) for half the price for the same quality plus! 3d. For the same price you can get other projectors from optoma or lg that have much higher lumens but its either they need to be plugged in, not as portable (like the mars) or the speakers suck.

    ~Smallest projector in its class (720p portable)
    ~Brightest projector in its class (pico projectors)
    ~Full sized hdmi, alot of other pico projectors use the smaller variants
    ~Can charge off a regular power bank (while in use, says to use anker charger instead, but it still works fine, dont get this issue if you use USBC PD power banks)
    ~usb c charging port, can share with modern phone chargers (I use the same anker charger for my laptop, tablet, and nintendo switch)
    ~ great for travel, and easy to move around
    ~loud perfect for personal or couple use
    ~doubles as a bluetooth speaker
    ~autofocus and keystone pretty accurate

    ~Expensive! i think 400-450$ is a much more reasonable price. Its actually double the price of the nebula mars line. If your willing to sacrifice the size and portability get a different projector
    ~No 3d function
    ~No Netflix or Amazon Prime. Its stupid, they even have stuff like crunchyroll and viki, but not prime? their primary distributor is amazon.
    ~Easy to tip over. Happened to me, someone bumped the table, fell on its side and rolled right off the table. Use a tripod.
    ~no included lens protection, exposed at all times (coming from the mars, which has a built in lens cover)
    ~during use there is light spill around the frame of the projected image. Like the rectangle image and a blob of dark grey light around the frame. its not that noticeable.
    ~i wish the ports was 1inch higher, some of my USB end up below the lowest point of the projector, ended up needing to use an extender for some devices.
    ~no quick access setting option (on the mars, hold home, and you get brightness, color, orientation, and 3d w/o exiting the app. On the capsule you need to exit app to adjust anything everytime.)

    This has fully replaced my nebula mars as my portable projector. Although its half the brightness (its a big difference). The size and ability to charge off usb vs proprietary chargers, made it a huge win for me. But for parties and such id rather bring the Nebula Mars instead, for its brightness and sound. too bad at this time there are no dedicated cases for the capsule 2

    Update: 5/23/19

    Battery life is:
    Standard: 1 1/2 hours
    Standard + Firestick4k: 1hr10min
    Battery: 3 hours
    Battery + firestick4k: 2hr30min

    I’ve been using it for about a week now, and noticed a couple of things. Tried sideloading netflix both the normal android and android tv version. neither work. Nice feature with pointing up to the ceiling still keystones correctly. And lastly still annoyed there’s no way to quick access settings, (i change the projection settings pretty often) Its nice though that unlike previous versions of the nebula projectors when you exit the app to change a setting, it still runs in the background so you can pick up where you left off. For me with how often i move it around, i dont regret the purchase.

    Update 9/14/19

    I’ve owned the capsule 2 since the first day of its official release, and only noticed now that there is a cheaper version of the capsule 2, that would actually fix one of the gripes that i had (netflix support and ios airplay). At first i regretted my purchase and wished that i could return it and get the cheaper version, but i was way past the return window.

    As for the ios airplay and netflix, you can get them working, but netflix is cumbersome to use and airplay tends to disconnect when you lock your device after 10-15 minutes sometimes, but other times it works just fine, i dont get why it acts up.

    Despite the fact that the Capsule max is 100$ cheaper id still probably get the capsule 2 all over again just for the usb c, over the capsule max’s dc barrel connection. the convenience of only having to bring one charger for my phone, laptop, switch, and projector, doesn’t quite make up for the 100$ difference but it’s a sacrifice for convenience.

    So my recommendation is if you REALLY need the portability with quality image and brightness, get the max, if you think the convenience of usb c is worth 100$ get the capsule 2. If portability is important but you can sacrifice a decrease in image quality and brightness get the original capsule (or other pico projectors there are several under 200$ but with poorer battery life and bad gui) if you dont need portability look elsewhere, there are brighter, higher-res projectors out there for the same price or cheaper.

    Nebula Capsule 2 ,Design and concept are great,sound quality is good,portable and convenient,Set up was smooth,but when comes to picture quality it’s equivalent to my $150 Apeman projector.and without the stand its hard to find a perfect spot to put on,So to use it properly you have to buy its stand separately..and Netflix is not smooth on it,it freezes lot.

    The Nebula Capsule 2 is amazing! I bought it with portability in mind, but ended up getting a device with so much more. It runs full Android TV. It features all the main streaming platforms (YouTube, Netflix, Prime, Disney+, Spotify, Twitch, Crunchyroll, even Firefox browser). I have also tested the Capsule using a flash drive (NTFS format) and even an external Western Digital hard drive – I can confirm you can watch videos (even 4k movies in .mkv format) on the Capsule 2 (ensure to download a file explorer like ES or FX file explorer and VLC media player apps- both free from the Google Play store on the Capsule). Despite being 720P, the picture quality looks really crisp!

    I also tested console gaming, the Nintendo Switch and PS4 looks amazing and plays just fine! You can switch between projector and a dedicated bluetooth speaker mode via a button on the back.

    Also, to dispel what a lot of reviews are saying; you can in fact sign in to your YouTube account and access your playlists/subscriptions/etc. Netflix is not natively supported, but it is so easy and so quick to access it (especially with the Nebula app that basically acts as a remote control and keyboard). Another thing to note is that the projection is much brighter when you plug it in – so a battery pack (recommend Anker as well) or extension cable is highly recommended.

    The Capsule 2 also has Google Assistant, so you can get it to control smart devices hooked up on the same network in your home. Amazing

    Overall: expensive investment but well worth it considering what you are getting + hyper portability and feature rich. Even more so considering the (sadly nonreplaceable) bulb lasting 30 000 hours (equivalent to watching straight for 3.42 years), you’ll get your use out of it 🙂

    FINALLY got the projector out after getting it as a gift for our wedding last October!

    We use it for NHL playoffs outside when having a bonfire and overall its not bad!! Except… The battery. It advertises up to 2.5 hours in video mode, not sure if that means streaming per say, but we only ended up getting about 1 hour and 40 minutes off a full charge. Thankfully, it can run while plugged in, but that meant I had to run an extension cord which is a pain. Honestly though, having an internal battery at all is awesome, but you wouldn’t make it thru a whole movie let alone an entire hockey game.

    I also knocked a star off for brightness, I can’t be too critical because it is only 200 lumens – but it does have to get pretty dark for it to display it’s full potential. Note the picture difference, when it’s lighter out, it has to be closer to the screen so it shows up, whereas when it’s darker outside, we can back up the projector to take advantage of the bigger picture. Again, not a biggie, but something to keep in mind!

    Overall, I love Anker as a brand and am always a fanboy of their products!

    I have now used this product for well over 5 months and can tell you that it has performed perfectly. It is intuitive to use and works flawlessly. I had some questions about hoe to read a USB stick and the support was simply awesome – fast and gave me the answers I wanted. I also had some minor issues which Customer Support handled with perfection! Honestly I do not work for them and am very direct on my feedback to products , but I have never seen a company so dedicated and caring in customer service than this one – bar none!!! Repondto emails, and gives answers to all my questions. Very happy with it thus far. FYI I would get this higher-end Nebula model as it has more channels to choose from, and is much more intuitive for shutdown and sleep modes. Works well also with Rooku stick!!! Their customer service is bar none thank you Sharon!

    Super crisp and clear. Fun to use….I’m still playing with it. You can do so many things with it. But if you plan to use it outdoors away from a power source I’d bring a battery pack or 2. I dont know if you can manually adjust the size of your display from where you sit instead of moving it around. It does automatically focus pretty quickly..I have yet to try using a flash drive/external storage to see what I can play or do if I take it to a beach or something. If you are far from your router/service provider box then I’d suggest getting a dlink or a device to expand the wifi in your home..makes it easier to avoid any lagging

    Condo living. This was a great alternative to a TV.
    – No mounting to installation
    – Easy android interface
    – Quality is good
    – HDMI , USB and Type C capable

    – Power cable provided is very short
    – Doesn’t connect to iPad through App
    – Must be on a white wall for best picture quality
    – Phone App needs work, sometimes a little glitchy
    – Fan is noticeably loud while it’s on

    I spent 2 months watching various YouTube videos, learning about portable projectors, & how to shop for them so let me save you the headache. This thing is good. Not the best, but definitely the best bang for your buck in the portable mid tier range.

    Pros: Android TV (run apps, games, whatever is on the Android TV version of Play Store) no proprietary OS nonsense. A couple GBs of onboard storage have allowed me to install a custom build of Kodi, VLC, Twitch, & RetroArch, WiFi AND Bluetooth You can totally screen mirror Android and I’ve had no issues hooking up my Xbox controller or my headset. The 8 watt speaker is AMAZING for how small this thing is. ACTUAL Native 720p resolution! I learned really quick that the cheaper projectors like to list HD but they’re full of crap. That’s not the projector resolution they’re listing, that’s the video resolutions you can input to it. Most of the cheaper ones project 480p. This thing is legit 720p. The auto focus & keystone are great (there’s a con to the keystone though & we’ll get to that).

    Cons: 200 ANSI Lumen isn’t all that bright. It’s better than most portables but this is definitely a dark room projector. The battery life sucks. You’re only going to get the advertised 2.5 hours in battery mode (1/2 brightness) with the WiFi/Bluetooth off and at about half volume. HIGHLY suggest pairing this thing with a 10,000mAh USB brick. I even hooked it up to an invertor & an old 12 volt car battery once just fine. Netflix doesn’t work. That’s not the projector’s fault btw, Netflix are just SUPER picky about what can use their apps. You can’t even screen mirror Netflix to this thing. On the bright side there IS a work around. You have to download the Nebula Manager app on the projector, run Netflix through THAT, then download the Nebula Companion app on a separate phone or tablet. Netflix will work but the trade off is your remote is almost useless in there & you have to then use a virtual remote on your phone or tablet in the Nebula Companion app. It’s definitely not ideal but it DOES work. We just binged the new Cyberpunk anime that way. Lastly, and the only REAL pain for me is no horizontal keystone. It’s super frustrating because it’s running a digital keystone & the vertical is REALLY good. Anker PLEASE push a firmware update & give us horizontal keystone already. Lastly the price. I waited to catch this thing on sale for $429.99 & that’s a decent price for what all you get in one tiny unit. I wouldn’t pay more than $450 for it given the the lack of digital horizontal keystone. There’s cheap $100 projectors that have that. I know it’s just a software fix & I KNOW you’re only doing it to sell the Capsule Max. Plenty of people will still buy the Max for the better battery life, push the update you cowards!

    All in all I’m happy with my projector. If you NEED more battery life you can get the Max that has all the same specs as this thing and allegedly does 4.5 hours as well as horizontal keystone too. Literally the only difference is this one has real AndroidTV and runs off of USB-C. Those were the deciding factors for me. Hope this helps some of you in your decision.
