ASUS Zenbeam E1 by Best Buy Canada Product Videos Youtube review
Description: ASUS Zenbeam E1 is truly portable and designed to be carried as a mini projector and a powerbank. You will receive a unique carrying hard case that has special output at the top so you can keep charging your devices inside your bag without even worry for the projector to be scratched.
