The most obvious question that would have arisen in your mind until now is, How are we going to print via this device?
Good question, all you need is a smartphone. Yes! It could be an iPhone or any Android device. That’s all you need. You just have to install an App and launch it whenever you need to print. You can connect your smartphone to this device via WIFI-Hotspot, or your network. One thing to note is that both devices need to be connected to the same network. You don’t need to carry your laptop everywhere to connect to this device.
The PrintPods can print at a density of 300 dpi. It is the standard dpi at which almost all the printers print. At this dpi, PrintPods should be able to print images or text in a clearly.
This device consists of a 500mAh battery. That means it has enough power to let you perform 1,000 prints on a single full charge. But, if you have a lot to print, you might have to carry a power bank with you.
As many great features, this device comprises, there are a few limitations too. The first being unclear on what kind of print are they actually talking about for confirming the number of prints on a single full charge. Also, It can print up to a maximum of 1.02 inches (26mm) tall. So, it narrows down the range of the type of images and text styles and designs that you can print. However, you can make a few adjustments to overcome this drawback. You can part your print into multiple portions fo 1.02 inches and print it sideways. But, this can incur the possibility of errors while printing.
But we can surely know that they will be working on these limitations and launching a new sibling of this device that will overcome these limitations.
