When it comes to gadgets, bigger is never better. Gadgets that are small and compact and which can work as well as their bigger counterparts are a plus for economy of space and portability. A small printer is the wish of many small office owners and those who work from a home office. There are many reasons why one would need a portable printer. You can print photos, reports, letters and other documents that often need to be changed on a whim.
Mobile and mini
Small printers fall into two categories. There is the mobile printer which is small and compact enough to fit in a backpack or a school bag. This kind of printer is especially a hit with amateur mobile photographers, business travellers and home workers. This printer uses miniaturized thermal printing. A mobile printer runs on DC power meaning it can be charged using a car battery or rechargeable batteries. A mobile printer is typically pricier than a standard mini printer.
Mini printers are not necessarily made for mobility but for lightweight and economy of space. These printers are popular with small offices, students and those who work in small spaces. The mini printer is ideal for printing the occasional document and scanning. Mini printers are cheap to purchase.
