Whether you’re constantly moving around your house now that you’re working from home or you simply want the option to print out photos/documents on the go from your phone, then a portable printer could be just what you need.

What is a portable printer?

Unlike traditional printers which are big, bulky and have to be plugged in, a portable printer is a small wireless device, which you can connect to your laptop or phone via WiFi or Bluetooth and lets you print documents and photos on the go. There are all-in-one portable printers that will do everything a traditional printer can do (such as scan, copy, print and print photos) and there are portable printers specifically made for one purpose, such as printing pictures from your mobile device.
