Hey Bev, Looked for you in Whitehorse, YT this year but missed you. Are you going back to South Louisiana this winter? I understand Thibodaux and Houma are high and dry but, everything from Amit to Gonzales, and across the river all around New Iberia and Lafayette is flooded. That's gonna take a lot of work to clean up. I will head down to Ascension Parish once I get home and get thing there in order. Hope you are well and still traveling with that Attack Cat. I will be in Buccaneer State Park for the winter, on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Take care in you travels.

Hp Officejet 150 Mobile All-In-One Fits the bill!

Iíll begin by saying this is just the printer I was hoping to find when I asked for help on this subject.

Thought I'd add this follow up for any who helped me or have followed this thread.
Thanks to the help I received on this thread and my own personal research I purchased the HP 150 from an Ebay vendor.

It's a refurbished unit so I paid less than half the price of a new one, $159 to be exact. I've received and tested it and it seems to work perfectly. The HP150 software (which I had to download from HP) was not designed for windows 10, but seems to work relatively well. I struggled a bit to get the Bluetooth connection working, but I did and it works well. I believe Bluetooth can only support printing however. Any scanning needs to be done with the USB tether (included) connected between printer and computer.

Pros:

  1. It's very compact, and like one contributor said it will fit in an overhead cabinet, which is just what we wanted for travel.
  2. They seem to be fairly ubiquitous, so if youíre like me and hate paying for new, youíll find many available on Ebay.
  3. It also has its own battery so it can be used when AC power is not available. I love this feature. (I'm not sure how long the battery lasts and the battery is not new and did not come with a guarantee. It seems to work fine at this point.)
  4. You can print with just black ink if desired, thus saving the color ink or not using it altogether.
  5. It appears after perusing the user Guide that the print heads and such are user replaceable. Clogged Print heads are what killed my Epson only the print heads on my Epson are a different story.
  6. I didnít pay a fortune for it so even if I only get a couple of years out it Iíll feel like I did okay.
Cons: These are minor, but good to know for some folks.
  1. User Guides and Start Guides must be downloaded from HP.
  2. Wireless connectivity is by Bluetooth only. So, even if you have wifi you'll have to have Bluetooth capability to go wireless with this printer. (Confession: Even though I've enabled a connect with my Samsung GS5 smartphone I have not yet figured out how to get it to use the HP150 to print.)
  3. Tri-Color ink cartridge. I'm not a fan of the tri-color ink cartridge which HP seems to prefer, but I can concede that for this compact printer it probably makes sense and I can print with just black ink in draft mode and economize that way.
  4. My biggest disappointment learning while reading the user Guide that it will only scan paper. So, I canít scan pre-digital photos with this scanner, but I can live with that.
Overall I'm very pleased with this printer. If you too are looking for a small compact printer, copier, scanner, youíll want to check this one out. Data Sheet Link.

If the HP150 is like the HP Envy you just scan and then email it to yourself or anyone else you've set up. That takes data, however, and HP has a copy of your scan. I think regular printing takes data too, since it's wireless. At home I'm wireless but on the road I use the USB cable, it's faster anyway.

For your smartphone you need to download an app or two. HP ePrint and HP All-in-one Remote. I use both apps to print from my smartphone.
