Why a mobile black and white inkjet printer isn’t the best idea

A lot of people who want mobile printing just want a device which is capable of basic black and white text/picture printing (otherwise referred to as monochrome). // // The issue is that most models produced in the last 7-8 years are very advanced, being inkjet based devices capable of advanced tasks such as lab-quality photo printing.  A lot of people who want monochrome–only printing as clear resolutions as well as Bluetooth capabilities would be much better of going for a thermal device as you can find on WPP’s homepage. The reason that a lot of people head [...] Read more...

Black and White Small Portable Printers

You’ll find that for serious travelling where you need printing a device based on thermal technology which is both small and portable is your best option.  The only downside is that it’s monochrome (black and white) only, and so this is aimed generally at people who only need basic work printing off. // // One of the first critical aspects which make them so useful is one that you won’t hear about anywhere else.  Now I will move onto the more conventional reasons why thermal monochrome portable printers they’re the best choice, but before this [...] Read more...

Almost No Moving Parts in Thermal Technology

When it comes to mobile printing you’ll find that many of the hardware issues are caused by the malfunctioning of moving parts, a problem which generally isn’t seen in printers based on thermal technology. // Seeing 25 year warranties isn’t uncommon, and those old yellow tills which look ancient are printers based on thermal technology which is why they’re so reliable. The issues with moving parts…   The main problem is that moving parts are easily broken when they’re… moved around, and seeing as we’re dealing with pieces of mobile technology it’s very easy to understand [...] Read more...

Portability of Thermal Printers

The most Mobile Technology Available If you’re looking for the absolute most portable printing technology than thermal devices are certainly what you must be aiming for. // // Firstly, if you’re interested in learning about all aspects, check out the thermal technology mobile printers for further details. There are two core characteristics which you need to look at when you’re assessing the transportability of this type of device: Weigh in pounds. Physical dimensions in inches. You’ll find that in both of these areas thermal devices are vastly superior to their inkjet counterparts, the average amounts [...] Read more...

Monochrome Printing using Thermal Technology

I’m writing this article to clear up the misconception of color and monochrome (black and white) printing using thermal printers. // // Firstly, if you’re interested in learning more about thermal technology mobile printer page. Secondly you’ll find that by fast the vast majority of printers based on this type of technology are monochrome–only. The only color which is possible is red, this is achieved by heating the thermal paper at two different temperatures. There’s no such things as thermal printers which are mobile and capable of ‘usually’ printing color, there’s only red. Even though printing [...] Read more...

Problems Caused by Moving Parts

Moving Parts cause the most Breakdowns…   You’ll find that time and time again that moving parts within an inkjet printer are a significant cause of problems regarding the device’s hardware. // // Firstly, if you’re interested in learning more about this device, check out our portable printers based on inkjet technology page. There are several areas of an inkjet portable printer which let down the overall design: Firstly the inkjet head, but most importantly the sections which power it are the most susceptible to breaking. Picture a finely calibrate piece of hardware which was [...] Read more...

Portability of Inkjet Technology Mobile Printers

Defining Portable?   A lot of people worry exactly how ‘portable’ a device is, and what this encompasses, because generally people aren’t experienced with regards to mobile printers. // // You’ll find that there are two critical areas in how a device should be constructed: Mass (generally the weight in pounds) Physical Dimensions (the width, depth and length in inches) If you want to learn more about printers based on inkjet technology, check out our mobile inkjet printers page. The Mass (weight) of a Mobile Printer based on Inkjet Technology You’ll find there’s a somewhat [...] Read more...

Printing Speeds of Portable Inkjet Technology Printers

What you should expect in terms of Printing Speeds… As you would expect mobile printers are a sacrifice between capabilities and portability, and in the case of an inkjet based device it’s no different. You can expect it to be slower and less responsive than desktop counterparts of which are ¼ of the price. If you want to learn more about mobile printers based on inkjet technology then visit here for more information. They’re much Faster than many People Presume But it’s not all bad news, not by a long shot, and ultimately you’ll find [...] Read more...

Photo Printing with a Mobile Inkjet Printer

Printing Photographs using Portable Inkjet Printers You’ll find that surprisingly photo printing is not only possible but far higher than people expect it to be.  Printing out regular lab-quality photographs at 4 by 6 inch size is easily possible, and you shouldn’t expect any decrease in quality. // // If you’re interested in learning more, then we suggest you check out our page on portable photo inkjet printing. There are just two resolution figures that you’ll get, assuming you’re buying a device that was made in the last 8-9 years. The Canon iP100 is capable [...] Read more...

Best Mobile Printers of 2011 List

When it comes to making a list of the best portable printers of 2011 you’ll find this a short, but certainly comprehensive list.  There are just a few things you need to understand first… // //   The first is that the only manufacturer’s to make this list is Canon and HP – no, this isn’t because I’m lazy.  It’s because you need to realize that only these two companies are large enough to support producing of inkjet technology based printers. You will find a few companies which are producing consumer targeted thermal printers, but [...] Read more...
