For example, a Windows tablet has a long battery life of up to almost 10 hours. That means you can generally get through an entire working day off one full charge! This battery life amplifies your ability to be on the go because your tech can only be as portable as the battery life allows.
An Android tablet is just as portable and lightweight too. In fact, one of these tablets can weigh less than one pound! Of course, this figure will go up slightly if you add in a keyboard, but even so, the weight will range around 3 pounds or less.
They can walk through your store with your clients, pointing out specs and pricing as they go. Since they don't have to be tied down to a desktop, there is no limit as to how portable they can be with the best small business tablet!
Well, sometimes you need something smaller than a desktop or laptop that you can bring with you on the go. That doesn't mean you need to sacrifice any power or features, though! If you need more of your questions on tablet reliability, portability, and efficiency answered and to see if one of these portable devices is right for your needs, check out our tablet FAQs.
The best portable printers allow you to print from wherever you are, whether you're on a business trip or relaxing on a beach. By combining the ability to print into a compact device you can slip into a laptop bag or backpack, you can print documents and photos anytime time and anywhere. With Wi-Fi connectivity and often an optional battery, a mobile printer gives you the freedom to print even if you're away from an outlet.
Most portable printers are small, coming in at less than 5 pounds. Many even come with rechargeable batteries and car chargers for use on the road. Despite the small size, a lot of portable models still offer full-page printing with the same inkjet technology you're accustomed to. Many even have scan and copy capability to give you full functionality even when you're away from the office.
Better yet is a small, 10-page automatic document feeder for copying and scanning. This is the only portable printer we've tested that offers copy and scan functions, but with no flatbed scanner, the printer draws paper through the body of the OfficeJet for scanning and copying. Scans weren't always straight, and the paper path's 60-degree bend left me nervous about it possibly damaging photos. But having scanning and copying capability on the go is well-worth these compromises.
Ink costs for printing text documents are about average for portable printers, at 9 cents each. With standard cartridges, cost per color page is high, at 23 cents per page. Using high-yield cartridges, you can lower this to 17.3 cents, though this is still higher than the 15.5 cents per color page you get with the Canon iP110 when using standard cartridges. You can save even more money by using HP Instant Ink, HP's subscription service for ink refills by mail.
One of our favorite portable printers is the Canon Pixma TR150, a compact inkjet that's small enough to carry in a backpack, but still offers excellent document and photo printing. With a two-cartridge ink system and printing for text documents, graphics and even glossy photos, the Pixma TR150 is a solid choice for portable printing. It doesn't offer copy or scan functionality, but at $199, it's also a great option for your pocketbook.
An optional battery lets you use it when you're away from a wall outlet, but even without it, the Canon Pixma TR150 is one of the most portable and travel-friendly printers out there, weighing less than the HP OfficeJet 250 and offering a more affordable print-only option.
In addition to its great mobility, the portable Pixma TR150 made high-quality photos faster than other competing portable printers, and delivered excellent color and detail. It can also handle larger photo prints, but unlike some of our photo printing favorites, there is no copy or scan capability. You do get a solidly-built portable printer with optional battery and even support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice controls, but we love it for the great photos and low ink costs it offers.
Of the four models outfitted with a battery, the Epson WorkForce EC-C110 is the least expensive. With the WorkForce moniker, this mobile printer is sold by business equipment resellers, and might be the best portable printer for business users. Of the inkjet models here, it is the lightest, weighing just 3.5 pounds.
The HP Tango X is a small printer made for home use and portability. It's lightweight compared to most desktop models, at just 7.5 pounds, the Tango X is less than a pound heavier than the HP OfficeJet 250. This printer has no USB port; it is wireless-only. But unlike other portable printers, the Tango X does not offer the option of a battery.
Like other portable printers, the Tango X has only an exit slot instead of an output tray. You need a PC or smartphone to use this portable printer, because it does not have a screen or control panel.
Text printing costs per page are below the average for portable printers, at 8.5 cents. Cost per color page, however, is above the average, at 21.8 cents, though you can reduce that to 18.1 cents by using high-yield cartridges.
When selecting a portable printer, you'll want to consider a few key factors, such as how you intend to use the printer, what your document printing needs are and what level of portability will be best suited to your circumstances.
Functions: Most of these portable models are single-function printers. They are too small to have a flatbed scanner for copying and scanning. One model does scan and copy, however: The HP OfficeJet 250. It has a partial lid that you fold forward to reveal a slender automatic document feeder. In addition, the HP Tango X offers what HP calls "copy" and "scan" functions via the smartphone HP Smart app. However, all this really amounts to is using your phone to take a picture (or "scan" if you will) of a document and then print it (or "copy," in HP Smart parlance). As outlined in our full review of the HP Tango X, the results were sub-par.
To test portable printers, we performed a variety of everyday tasks. To make the results comparable to desktop inkjet printers, we performed a few of the same printing speed tests, from a Windows 10 laptop: A five-page text document, and a six-page PDF with text and graphics.
While desktop models printed text pages at 8.8 ppm, on average, the portables were not far behind, at 6.9 ppm. The portable printers almost matched the desktop printers' 2.7 ppm average on color graphics, clocking in at 2.4 ppm. This average excludes the Brother PocketJet 773 because it prints only in black-and-white (and even so printed only at 1.6 ppm on this test).
Abstract: Featured ApplicationThere has been an increased demand for, and there are potential benefits of, creating three-dimensional digital models of existing objects in the automotive, aerospace, cultural heritage, and medical industries. Non-contact data acquisition systems are in great demand owing to their higher data acquisition speed and movability. The application of unsuitable data acquisition may result in inaccurate data, thus making the reverse engineering ineffective and inefficient. Therefore, it is crucial for the designers to select the appropriate data acquisition technique, depending on the application requirements. Hence, this work provides the methodology and guidelines for the users to evaluate and compare different scanners for applications in the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries, etc. AbstractThe process of generating a computerized geometric model for an existing part is known as Reverse Engineering (RE). It is a very useful technique in product development and plays a significant role in automotive, aerospace, and medical industries. In fact, it has been getting remarkable attention in manufacturing industries owing to its advanced data acquisition technologies. The process of RE is based on two primary steps: data acquisition (also known as scanning) and data processing. To facilitate point data acquisition, a variety of scanning systems is available with different capabilities and limitations. Although the optical control of 3D scanners is fully developed, still several factors can affect the quality of the scanned data. As a result, the proper selection of scanning parameters, such as resolution, laser power, shutter time, etc., becomes very crucial. This kind of investigation can be very helpful and provide its users with guidelines to identify the appropriate factors. Moreover, it is worth noting that no single system is ideal in all applications. Accordingly, this work has compared two portable (handheld) systems based on laser scanning and white light optical scanning for automotive applications. A car door containing a free-form surface has been used to achieve the above-mentioned goal. The design of experiments has been employed to determine the effects of different scanning parameters and optimize them. The capabilities and limitations have been identified by comparing the two scanners in terms of accuracy, scanning time, triangle numbers, ease of use, and portability. Then, the relationships between the system capabilities and the application requirements have been established. The results revealed that the laser scanner performed better than the white light scanner in terms of accuracy, while the white light scanner performed better in terms of acquisition speed and triangle numbers.Keywords: reverse engineering; handheld scanners; laser scanning; white light scanning; design of experiment
