Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer via Amazon
White Polaroid ZIP POLMP01W is an innovative, compact, mobile, iOS and Android compatible standalone printer without the messy ink cartridges, that is created for printing coloured photos fast- in under a minute from different sources like your tablet or your smart phone. It comes with a micro-USB cable, a 500 mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery that is not removable, 10 premium ZINK photo papers that you put inside at the top part of the printer. With the quality of photos having increased a lot over the years, there is now the trend of having the print-outs and with some options from Polaroid itself, this one is actually the most compact of them all. Your digital photo becomes touchable and water-proof with the Polaroid mobile printer.
Polaroid ZIP Printer weighs just 6.6 ounces (186 grams) with measurements of 4.72 x 2.91 x 0.9 inches so it is like the size of a mobile phone (only twice as thick) and will fit in your hand or just slip in your pocket comfortably. It will let you print photos that are shot by your smart phone in just under a minute and on a single charge of its lithium ion battery (that charges in about ninety minutes) it can print 25 sheets. There is no ink cartridges, ribbon or toner but Polaroid ZINK- zero ink papers with layers of no-colour dye crystals with a polymer coating that simply gain colour with the unique colour-forming molecules in paper’s layers as the printer processes them as they are exposed to heat by the little Polaroid printer. It is a simple small box that you conveniently hook up to your tablet or your phone via Bluetooth or NFC technology. You just open the ZIP app on your phone and simply choose a photo from your gallery or take a new one and edit it with different settings or filters then simply press ‘print’ and you’ll get the 2 x 3 inch colourful smudge-proof photos with OK quality.
It is definitely a cool little device if you need something that can print out photos with even deep and vivid colours to little pieces of Zink papers right on the spot, considering how small, fast, convenient, hassle-free, smart and practical this little gadget is. Polaroid ZIP is rather easy to use with just the power button and nothing confusing on the gadget itself and you do the editing or adding text or whatever you want to do on the ZIP app directly on your phone or tablet. With the regular micro USB port on it and the USB to mic USB cable included you will not need any other cables or expensive adapters to make it work. You will be able to just plug it directly into your laptop, desktop or even a power outlet which works with an optional adapter.You can easily create a business card with a quick photo that you can edit quickly prior to printing and you put in your details- text, email address, address, phone number and web page and you can stick it anywhere you want.
