PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE ORDERING. Menu options ---------------------- Pocketjet 6 Plus Bluetooth Has some marks/wear from use, over all good condition and tested to work 100% Working W/ Issue -READ DESC. Has a non working power button with damaged plastic cover, see picture.
Also has velcro under the printer. I have set the bios settings to automatically power on when plugged in.You will never really need to use the power button, it is fine to leave it on all the time. I can also adjust the settings to power off after some time if requested(or you can do this yourself with the settings program), then just unplug and plug it back in when you use it again. ------------------------- Power adapter and usb options New power adapter and usb cable included. Choose 100x 4x6 labels, 100x 4x8 labels or no labels. Also includes 10 sheets of thermal paper.
Printer only and DIY power cable option Includes the printer and a power cable you can wire up to your own power adapter, see 4th picture. Your power adapter must be between 12v and 16v and must be atleast 3 amps. No power adapter, usb cable, thermal paper or thermal labels included with this option. Video will open in a new window. Why this printer instead of other label printers?Prints 2x7" on 4x8" size labels(see video) or 4x6" on 4x6" labels. 2x7 labels are best for smaller packages and are a more professional looking label, see picture. No other thermal printer other then the few 3 label printers, the thermal label rolls to print these are also costly. No need for your inkjet or laser printer anymore. Pocketjet's are very reliable built with high quality circuitry/components. They have been around since 1995 and are the only full page thermal printer on the market, no worry about it breaking down. I use mine everyday for three years without an issue.
This model has high 300dpi print resolution, label printers have 200dpi or less. I have offered pocketjet printers for more then 5 years now. Note: if you look elsewhere for a different model pocketjet no other models other then this or pocketjet 6 plus will work, I have tested them all.
This model has different components to allow it to print labels correctly. Compatibility of printer on different computers/devices. Some computers with only usb 3.0 ports will not work thru usb mode. Usb 3.0 ports are blue inside, usb 2.0 ports are black inside. Most computers with usb 3.0 work, I have only seen newer tablet/laptop computers like Surface and similar with more advanced touchscreen(touchscreens that work like mobile phones) with usb 3.0 ports to be an issue.
All model macbooks or computers with the new usb-c ports work fine. Apple computers do not support bluetooth mode unless using windows boot camp, will only work thru usb mode in mac osx. USB mode is best since print time is slower with bluetooth.
Note: apple computers are not recommended as I have problems with larger amounts of labels. This is the same issue with other printers, it has something to do with the mac version of abobe reader. Using boot camp windows on a mac works fine, that is what I use and no issue's ever. Does not work with Ipad/Iphone. Works on android devices using the brother iprint&scan app.
Average label and full page paper costs. 2.5 ¢ to 3 ¢ per label, -two labels each sheet 1.5 ¢ each. Based on the average 5 ¢ to 8 ¢ a sheet cost for an ink printer you are not loosing anything. Notes for using printer to print labels. Labels must be loaded one at a time so you must use fanfold with perforation.Each label must be torn before printing. This doesn't take long, about 20 minutes for a month worth of labels. Prints on 6"x4" size labels or 4"x8" size labels. 7x2" labels -Two labels on one 4"x8 label, cut in half when applying label. This is a great option for small bulging non flat small packages, easy for the postman to scan a vertical bar code on smaller packages that are not flat.
The easier it is to scan for the postman the more likely it will be scanned and not end up with the dreaded "tracking not updated" or not scanned at sorting facilities. Or a single piece of tape will cover the label for extra protection.However I will fix accidental damage for the cost of parts only.
