Epson’s WorkForce WF-100, the Lightest & Smallest Wireless Printer

0

Let’s face it — while you can certainly use a hotel’s printer if they have a business center or special room for business travelers to work, it’s not always convenient.

Many hotels will let you print out a page or two by emailing it to reception, but often this is convenient too and many will even charge you for it. What about the times you’re staying up late working and simply want to review a report you’re working on — a hard copy that is?

Epson’s WorkForce WF-100 is the ideal product for both leisure and business travelers, because it’s both small and lightweight. Bravo!

The above shot is of the WorkForce unfolded, showing its convenient tray for paper – it’s great to keep you organized when you’re full force on a project.  What’s sweet however is that it also folds up quickly and easily, making it easy to pack, even for long weekend trips.

They tout this printer gem as the world’s lightest and smallest wireless mobile printer, making it a godsend for any traveler who wants to be efficient and productive on the road.

You can print from your laptop, tablets and smartphones wirelessly, a necessary for mobile warriors. Its Wi-Fi Direct combined with an integrated rechargeable battery, makes it easy to print from anywhere.

We have tested it out in four different scenarios but not for long enough to validate whether the battery life is as long as they say it is, but they claim it will run for 100 black and white pages or 50 color pages. So far, so good.

Epson’s WorkForce WF-100 is as small, portable and lightweight as it says it is, weighing in at only 3.5 pounds.

Another sweet factoid is that it not only prints business documents, like contracts and 8×10 documents you’re working on but borderless 4×6 photos as well and as fast as 77 seconds, a great add-on for lifestyle travelers.

The maximum paper size it can handle is 8.5x 14 and it supports 3.5×5, 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 8.5×11, A4, A6, half letter and executive paper sizes.

It has a bright 1.4″ color LCD and control panel for simple set up and use as well.

Additional features include support for Android and Kindle Fire printing using its Epson Connect, a suite of free mobile printing solutions. It also supports Google Cloud Print with Gmail or a Google Drive account.

The product comes with a CD-ROM for product set up, a built-in lithium-ion battery, AC adapter, USB cable, manual, ink cartridges — software includes an Epson printer driver and there’s a one year limited warranty in the U.S. and Canada.

It’s reasonably priced and can be easily ordered over on Amazon. Two thumbs up!

We also recently reviewed and recommended the Epson ES-200 Portable Scanner and are becoming fans of Epson’s products — also available over on Amazon.

Other useful products for travelers include the Jam Audio speakers, Harman’s noise-cancelling on-ear headphones, LSTN Headphones, and Belkin Arm Bands. Be sure to check out our Technology section as well as our Lifestyle Product reviews.
