The Best Travel Printers
Print standard documents or digital pictures on your travel printer. (paper feed image by Glenn Jenkinson from

Being able to print out documents, pictures and letters may be an important part of your business practices even when you are travelling. Travel printers are designed to be small enough to carry with you along with a notebook computer and other office items (weighing between two and five pounds). They can also work with a wireless connection and your computer, and most come with battery packs as well as car chargers so you can use them any time, anywhere.

Canon PIXMA iP100

According to the SmallPortablePrinter web site, the PIXMA iP100 is "one of the top mobile printers in the industry." It was designed to print colour photos as well as black and white images and documents, and can be plugged directly into your digital camera. You can also connect to this printer using a wireless connection, Bluetooth or USB. As of 2010 the PIXMA iP100 cost around £162.

Canon PIXMA iP90

PCWorld ranks the Canon PIXMA iP90 as one of the top travel printers for several reasons, including its ability to print both colour photographs as well as documents. It weighs almost five pounds with the optional battery, but only about four without. While it may be larger than some travel printers, the PIXMA iP90 can print 6.3 pages of documents per minute, which beats the time that some desktop printers work at. The PIXMA iP90 retails at around £161 (as of 2010).

HP Photosmart 375

PCWorld also places the HP Photosmart 375 at the top of its list for best travel printers. At only 1.72 Kilogram with the optional battery, it is one of the smallest mobile printers available (as of 2010). Unlike the Canon PIXMA models, the Photosmart 375 cannot print both photos and documents. However, its print quality for pictures is very good (according to PCWorld). This printer also costs around £162.
