You ask. We answer. The most common questions we receive about Celluon pico projectors (PicoAir, PicoPro, & PicoBit) are answered here.
Of course if you have a question that isn’t found here, please contact us with your question and our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

What's the difference between the PicoAir, PicoPro, and PicoBit laser HD projectors?

The PicoAir connects to mobile devices only via wireless protocols and is specifically designed for Miracast-enabled Android devices. It is not recommended for iOS devices and has limited connectivity to Windows devices.
The PicoPro has the same wireless capability but also offers HDMI wired connectivity making it the best choice for iOS users, other mobile devices that don’t have Miracast and for anyone who wants to connect to multiple device types.
The PicoBit has the features of PicoPro, along direct WiFi connection capability, Micro SD card feature, and embedded Android OS which you can flawlessly navigate using the embedded touchpad.
The PicoBit’s brightness is about 2x brighter than PicoAir and PicoPro.

How do I connect my pico projector via Miracast?

Miracast-enabled devices may have different names for the Miracast function. For example, Samsung devices may have a “Smart View / Screen Mirroring” function, where other devices may have a “Cast Screen”, “Media Output”, and “Screen Share” function.

Do I need to leave my pico projector plugged in to operate or does it run on battery?

Celluon pico projectors run on a battery that will take approximately 3.5-4 hours to recharge. You can use the projectors while plugged in but it will take longer to charge.

I see that the projectors use laser technology, is it safe?

The laser class of Celluon pico projectors is a Class 3R laser product sometimes known as Class IIIa. A Class 3R laser is considered low powered. We recommend not staring into any strong light source and that holds true with any laser of any class. A Class 3R laser is not a skin or materials burn hazard. As with any technology, responsible use is tied to safe use. We emphasize that our product is marvel of modern technology and is not a toy. The PicoAir/PicoPro/PicoBit are designed for responsible reasonable use. Also, as with any lasers do not shine them at vehicles or directly at people.

I have an iPhone, how do I connect it wirelessly?

The PicoAir does not go with iPhones. Long answer: We recommend our PicoPro for iOS devices. Using a separately purchased Lightning Adapter connected via the HDMI cable provided with the PicoPro purchased through the www.celluon.com website, you will have full screen mirroring functionality. It is possible to connect to iPhones via the PicoAir’s DLNA connection, but we do not recommend it. It requires a a third party application and you will be limited by the viewing options the application supports. We have found it to be a sub-optimal experience.

The PicoBit, however, allows you to connect directly with iPhone via screen mirroring (AirPlay) capability. Restrictions may apply to contents purchased through App store. For more information, please refer to PicoBit’s user manual.

I plugged my separately purchased Apple Lightning AV Adapter and HDMI cable into my iPhone/iPad with the PicoPro/PicoBit and it's not working, what is going on?

If you purchased your PicoPro from Amazon, you will need a separately purchased Apple Adapter and HDMI A to D Cable (HDMI male to microHDMI male). Please be aware that some HDMI A to D Cables transmit data differently. For example, Insignia’s HDMI A to D Cable microHDMI connector can only input data and is not configured to output data which is required for the PicoPro. If you need recommendations on a cable please contact our Customer Support Team. If you purchased through www.celluon.com, you will need a separately purchased Apple Adapter and the HDMI cable that comes with the package. If you encounter problems after connecting the required cables, please contact theCustomer Support Team for additional assistance.

I lost the charger that came with my PicoAir/PicoPro/PicoBit pico projector, can I use other chargers?

Yes, you can use other chargers to charge the PicoAir/PicoPro/PicoBit, however it will take longer to charge. The adapter that comes in the retail package is specifically designed for the pico projectors. It is recommended that you do not use this charger for other devices.

The colors seem a bit blurry, is there a way to adjust?

Yes, you can use the laser alignment function built into the PicoAir/PicoPro. You can download the instructions from our Resources section of our online Support site. The PicoPro instructions are the same except you must start from the HDMI screen.

What are my sound options aside from the internal speaker?

You can connect speakers or headphones directly to the PicoAir/PicoPro using the 3.5mm aux out port. You can also Bluetooth a speaker to your Android device at the same time the PicoAir is connected via Miracast (Be aware, some Samsung devices do not allow Miracast and Bluetooth to connect simultaneously). Unfortunately, you will NOT be able to Bluetooth a speaker to your iPhone/iPad and stream due to Apple’s DRM constraints.

However, with PicoBit’s embedded Bluetooth 4.0 feature, you can bluetooth any speaker or headset to PicoBit directly to enjoy stereo sound.

I turned on my PicoAir/PicoPro and it got stuck on the load screen. What should I do?

Please turn off your PicoAir/PicoPro, wait 5-10 seconds and turn it back on.

Can I play a movie/video through PicoBit for a long period of time?

It is not recommended to use PicoBit continuously for more than 4-5 hours. Due to the structure of the projection module, heat problem with module may occur if PicoBit is continuously played for a long period of time. We recommend users to cool off the device by turning it off after playing it for 4-5 hours.

Can I use Google Play Store to download apps on PicoBit?

Google Play Store is not supported by PicoBit. Therefore, if a specific app  requires Google Play account or doesn’t work properly on PicoBit after installation, it is not compatible and cannot be supported by PicoBit.
Instead of Google Play Store, users can install desired Android apps on PicoBit by installing applicable APKs.
However, if the APKs installed by users do not work properly, Celluon is not able to provide technical support.

My micro SD card is not being recognized by PicoBit.

PicoBit supports FAT32 file system. If your SD card’s memory size is more than 64gb or if the memory format is FAT64, PicoBit will not be able to recognize the card. Therefore, any individual files that are larger than 4GB cannot be copied and played via PicoBit. Please change SD card’s memory format to FAT32 to use with PicoBit.

Air Pico Connection : I cannot play movies purchased from App Store through PicoBit.

Due to Apple’s DRM restriction, PicoBit cannot play contents purchased from the App Store.
To play contents purchased from App Store, we recommend users to connect PicoBit via HDMI wired connection (Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter and HDMI cable required).
