Portable wireless printing

Has anyone found a reasonably small portable wireless printer that will print from an IPAD? I travel a lot and need something that I can pack in luggage (weight restricted) that will print from my IPAD? It needs to print standard paper, but not necessarily color.             Sharon

Re: Portable wireless printing

Hi,

 

Probably your printer uses Bluetooth and at this stage iPad does not support printing using Bluetooth. What is your printer ? Does it support WiFi ?

 

Regards.

Re: Portable wireless printing

That's the problem, I don't have a printer - because I need something quite portable that I can pack in a suitcase or carryon that will work with m IPAD, and there isn't one.  I was hoping someone had discovered something.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Re: Portable wireless printing

Yes, I did check the internet, but what I have seen are either too big or don't work with the iPAD.  Maybe Apple will come

up with something.  I guess I could try to send my notes to computer, then print them from there. But, that's the reason I carry my iPAD. Do you know if it would work with the new Google computer?

Re: Portable wireless printing

Yes, I checked Amazon, and other web sources. They do have a wireless, portable printer, but it doesn't work with the IPAD. Which I guess is Apple's fault.  But, that's what I'm looking for.
