5 Best Android Endoscope In 2019

Inspection cameras have a lot of great uses, even in everyday tasks. You might be a mechanic who needs an up close look at a fuel injector, or you might just need to see in a corner where you cannot get to. A waterproof inspection camera or endoscope can be used to look down water pipes or drains, and you could even use it in veterinary applications. They’re great for looking up air ducts and HVAC equipment as well. The applications they can be used in are endless, so you might be beginning to see why it’s worth having one around. Want to pick one up? The good news is that they don’t cost too much, but you do want to get a good one so you can see a high quality image.

Android Endoscope

Follow along below, and we’ll show you the best Android endoscopes! Here are our top picks.

Depstech Wireless Endoscope

First up on our list is the Depstech Wireless Endoscope. This one has micro-USB support, so it won’t work directly with a USB-C phone without a USB-C to Micro-USB adapter. It’s a 2-megapixel high definition camera, so you should be able to see some pretty good detail in whatever you are inspecting. It can go quite a distance as well, having a whole 16-inches in length, perfect for inspecting a pipe or drain. It’s waterproof, and it can go wireless with its 1,800mAh battery, which can last about 3-4 hours without the LED light on.

Depstech Wireless USB-C Endoscope

If you need a USB-C application, we recommend the Depstech Wireless USB-C Endoscope — it’ll work flawlessly with USB-C phones like the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8 and similar smartphones. This one actually comes with an adapter for use with a micro-USB phone, too.

This one is waterproof, so it will work in liquid applications without fail. It has great vision, and has a length of up to 16ft, according to its product description. That’s a substantial amount of cable, but will get you through almost any job, especially traversing some of the longer pipes out there.

Fantronics Endoscope

Fantronics offers a on-the-go micro-USB endoscope inspection camera on the cheap. This camera doesn’t have its own independent battery, so it does rely on your Android phone for power — simply plug it in, connect it with the companion application, and you’ll get a real-time video feed on whatever the endoscope is seeing. It has 3.5 meters of cable, so you can see quite a distance away. It does have a couple small LEDs built into the camera so that you can see in darker places. The best observation distance you’ll get is up to 4-inches away from the camera. That said, you will need to get pretty up close to something to see the problem. Fantronics offers a USB-C version of this exact camera as well.

Fantronics 3.5mm Rigid Endoscope

Next up is Fantronics’ 3.5mm Rigid Endoscope. The rigidity is really nice, which means the camera line isn’t going to flex all over the place. You’ll be able to mostly control where it goes, all thanks to the rigidity. It has 6 adjustable LEDs, so you’ll be able to see in dark places fairly clearly with them turned on. This doesn’t have its own battery, so it does rely on your Android phone for its battery powered.

Prostormer Endoscope Inspection Camera

Last, but certainly not least, we have the Prostormer Endoscope Inspection Camera. This wireless endoscope is able to connect up to your phone by way of Bluetooth, and has a cable length of up to 5 meters. It functions with all devices, and has a semi-rigid cable to give you more control over direction. The battery supports up to 3-4 hours of working time without the LED turned on. It’s worth noting that the inspection camera itself is waterproof, but the wireless box it is attached to is not.

Whether you need an endoscope that can work with your Android phone for auto repair applications or HVAC uses, veterinary uses or even in maintenance applications, there’s an endoscope for you on this list. Really, no matter which one you pick up, they should all be able to serve you quite well, but do keep in mind what you’re going to use it for. If you’re going to use it to examine water pipes, keep in mind that the endoscope you choose has to be waterproof, otherwise you might ruin it or dirty the lens with water spots to the point where you cannot see.
