[FCC] Solar Portable

Nebula’s upcoming Solar Portable was just approved by the Federal Communications Commission… Take a look!

This is Nebula’s first portable projector with a 1080p FHD resolution! The battery capacity is believed to be 6700mAh. There are also indications that this may be using Bluetooth 4.2, and the input could be USB-C; however, those specs have not been confirmed. Stay tuned for updates as the release nears.

Nebula’s Solar series is expected to be larger than the Capsule series but smaller than the Mars Series.

Note: Nebula is also developing Solar (non-portable), Vega (non-portable), and Vega Portable. Nebula's Vega series is expected to be less premium than the Solar series, but details remain scarce at this time.

I was confused by “Solar” @Insider :crazy_face:
@Shenoy are you back to original name?

Yeah, I don’t think it means solar input, but who knows, maybe?

yep, back to old :slight_smile:

Alright, @professor, we need your help.

The FCC test report reveals that Solar Portable has a battery capacity of 6700mAh. This seems quite surprising given Nebula’s other projectors:

  • Capsule II (200 ANSI Lumens): 2.5 Hours Playtime (Advertised) at 720p with 9700mAh Battery
  • Mars II Pro (500 ANSI Lumens): 3 Hours Playtime (Advertised) at 720p with 12,500mAh Battery

How could Nebula possibly deliver a reasonable playtime at 1080p with a 6700mAh battery?! Assuming decent brightness and a smart OS (implied by Wi-Fi), I cannot fathom how this is possible. Do you suppose the processor is that much more efficient?!

Obviously I have to guess here.

The three most obvious reasons are:

  1. FCC info is incorrect. Anker’s errors are notoriously high.
  2. From reviews here of the other battery powered projectors, they have not been getting the quoted times anyway, it requires to be not using full brightness and other battery saving modes like local media projection. So this could just be under different assumed levels of brightness below maximum. For example a brighter 500 Lumens can still do 100 Lumens so quote 100 Lumens battery performance not 500 Lumens.
  3. Most of the power loss is in the projector technology, what makes the light, not the processor (hardware digital) so it could be a genuinely newly more efficient. If that were true I’d expect it shouted from the marketing rooftops.

Assuming no errors, then I’d recommend when this comes for sale, a method of keeping it going with some suggested Powercore is included so those wanting particularly longer operation know what to buy, such as a bundled option. Some Nebula models are compatible already, others need a non-Anker 5V-9V adapter.
