When was the last time you’ve seen someone packing a printer for an upcoming trip? We bet you haven’t. Mobile printers, though are fast becoming great travel companions. A handful of models, in fact, are designed to be compact enough to easily fit into a travel luggage. Today, we’ll feature a few of the best mobile printers out on the market.
With these impressive wireless printers, you can print photos, reports, labels, and contracts wherever your pastime or job takes you.
Epson WorkForce WF-100
It’s certainly not the fastest inkjet around but, the Epson WorkForce WF-100 Wireless Mobile Printer is still one of the best mobile printers. Not only does it have all the connectivity features expected from a portable work printer, but it also handles a fair number of prints well despite its size.
Above all, this mobile printer has a lightweight design and built-in battery that makes it perfect for business travelers. And have we mentioned that the inks are reasonably priced?
HP OfficeJet 4650 All-in-One Printer
Trade-offs are expected when looking at entry-level mobile printers, but that’s not the case with the HP OfficeJet 4650 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer. It’s a multi-function printer (MFP) despite coming in with a bargain price, which is, frankly, a pleasant surprise.
Its low asking price isn’t the only thing we find impressive about it, though. You can also print, copy, and scan cost-effectively with it, too, thanks to its Instant Ink. Plus, it’s one of the easiest mobile printers to set up and use! And with it having decent cloud and mobile device support, we don’t see why anyone would ignore such an awesome printer.
Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer
Photos are meant to be seen, not hidden. That’s probably the reason our social media feeds are littered with selfies. But why keep your smartphone pictures trapped in cyberspace when you can turn them into a personal photo gallery with the Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer?
Indeed, you can showcase your talent in photography with this pocket-sized, ultra-lightweight, and inexpensive mobile printer. Whether you’ve got an Android or iOS device, you can directly print from either via NFC or Bluetooth. That, or you could use a microSD card.
Another thing that we find impressive about the Polaroid ZIP is that you don’t need ink to print at all! All you need is Polaroid’s Zink paper and you’re good to go.
Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2
Bring one to the next Christmas party and you’ll surely have lots of fun sharing photos among family and friends! The Fujifilm INSTAX SHARE SP-2 Smart Phone Printer has been made for such special moments, indeed.
A faster and more stylish successor of the original SP-1, this compact printing device weighs around 8 ounces and slips into a spacious purse just fine. It also connects to a mobile app that offers different filters and templates so you can edit your every shot like a pro! Best of all, it produces solid photo prints!
Unfortunately, its small image format (1.8 x 2.4-inch) may leave you feeling underwhelmed.
Canon Pixma iP110 Wireless Mobile Printer
All you need is an additional battery pack and you can be printing excellent photos and documents whenever, wherever. The CANON PIXMA iP110 Wireless Mobile Printer is a superb mobile printer, indeed. That’s perhaps why it has received wide acclaim since entering the market.
Beyond its excellent print outputs, though, this wireless printing device comes with connectivity options for a truly mobile printing experience. It connects by Wi-Fi, USB, and Wi-Fi Direct. It even supports Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPlay so you can print directly from your Android phone or iPad.
These compact mobile printers are definitely a smart investment for anyone who needs to print pictures and documents on the go. They’re small enough to be tucked inside a bag yet powerful enough to produce better-than-average prints.
