I have been looking to pick up a bore-scope/endoscope like this for some time. So I jumped at the chance to take a look at the PONATIA 2 in 1 USB Borescope for Android and PC 2.0 MP HD Endoscope Borescope, IP67 Waterproof OTG Endoscope, Snake Tube Pipe Camera, Video Borescope (5M).
The Endoscope comes in a nice sturdy tin box that will survive being chucked into the bottom of the tool bag. Along with the endoscope you get 3 attachments (a Magnet, a Hook, a right angle mirror and a cleaning cloth. (One slight point which might have made the difference would have been to include a bag to store the wrapped cable in while inside the tin but that’s just me opinion.)
The Actual Endoscope/Borescope has a nice “dual” USB connection. It can be a full USB connector or the tip can flip up to expose a Micro USB connector used in Android phones. This feature is a nice touch, the metal tip is very sturdy and will last a long time under constant use. The USB end also has a button to turn the LED lights at the tip of the Endoscope on and off. The USB end also lights up when powered and connected to a suitable device.
Although the camera is working perfectly under Windows and Linux, Ideally you just need to download the “Endoscope App” from one of the 2 Provided QR codes and plug in into the phone to use the endoscope.
Under Windows you can download the app from the enclosed QR code and plug in the device.
With Linux it’s a bit more user friendly. No need to install any additional software, just plug it in and open any playback software. I use VLC, it will generally play anything and in that I just need to select the endoscope “webcam” from the list of available video sources and off you go!
Unfortunately my 2 different Android devices refuse to work with the camera.
One is the ”Honor 7” it’s OTG enabled and should work with the Endoscope but It just throws up an error. This might be use to low power provided by the phones micro USB port.
My Other device is a Nexus 7 (2013) it is listed as compatible, but on some forums it’s an issue with some versions of Android OS has problems with USB Webcam’s like the Endoscope in general. Unfortunately it also seems the USB connector on my Tablet is damaged and needs replacing, Something I plan to do in the very near future I’m 85% certain this is the reason I can’t get the Endoscope to work with the tablet..
The 5 meter length is long enough to get into the smallest of places, the 6 LED lights are bright enough to see what is ahead of it in the dark. I have used it with my Laptop to check out a few places around the the house. One being down the back of the couch. I found a USB stick I thought I lost and £2.79 in change! I also used it to check out the drains in my kitchen. The water has been slow to drain and using the device I could see the blockage a few meters down the drain and remove it with a few pokes of the tip.
Adequate picture quality
Easy to install and use
Sturdy carrying tin
Fickle support for USB Webcams in android devices Though not the fault of the device, it is annoying that there is no clear way to see if your phone will work.(Double check and send a question to the seller to see if your phone and Android version is compatible)
The LED’s can heat up and can be worrying, but this is normal under periods of long use.
I’ve got a few ideas of what I can do with the Borescope and a Raspberry-Pi or Raspberry Pi Zero, to turn it into a wireless borescope.
Despite problems using the device with Android devices It is a nice product that does what it says on the tin (pun intended). That is NOT the fault of the device itself. It works as expected in Windows and Linux systems. I will keep trying to get it to work via Android boards like XDA-Developers forum and will update if and when I get Android devices to play nicely with it.
