Easiest movie night ever: This popular mini projector for iPhone is a mere $52 — that's nearly 70% off

Why is this a good deal?

Aside from the impressive discount, the Elephas is one of the most affordable options in its price range. Right now, it's marked down lower than even the budget-focused options. Most other miniature projectors start around $65 and go up from there. This is also one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for this little gadget.

Why do I need this?

Despite its small size, the projector uses an efficient cooling system that keeps fan noise to a minimum — so you can hear what's happening on the screen instead of an annoyingly loud whirring.

The screen size goes up to 200 inches. For reference, most movie theater screens are anywhere between 700 and 1,500 inches. Since you likely don't have a space that size to project onto, this nifty device can re-create the theater experience at home on a smaller scale. It works with your iPhone but is also compatible with a variety of other devices, including laptops, streaming sticks and even Blu-Ray players.

The built-in speakers are small but powerful (although you can extend the audio to an external system if you have one). Unlike many projectors, this one is bright and color-accurate enough that you'll get a viewing experience faithful to what the director intended.

What reviewers say

"I’ve had this set up on my deck under an easy-up with a waterproof cover over it for storage for three years! It stays outside all summer. I bring it inside when the easy-up cover gets taken off in really bad weather or in the winter, but we do use it in all seasons, including wintertime. It’s been a wonderful little projector," one watcher raved.

Another user commented on the ease of use. "This is the perfect little projector to take on the go. Its compact design and convenient carry case make it a great option for traveling, with quick setup and take down. Used with my iPhone so I needed to purchase an extra cord, but was referenced in the listing so the expectations were set. Streamed multiple apps from it so far with no real issues. Highly recommend!"

One fan said, "This is a great small, portable projector. We bought this to watch movies outside and to take camping. Comes with a nice storage/carrying case. Great picture quality and brightness! Performs better than expected. The only downside is it doesn't have Bluetooth audio capabilities. Easily fixed by using an aux audio cable, though."

This makes it possible to carry a huge screen in your pocket.
