What is HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer?
HP Socket Photo Printer is a wallet size photo printer, which is much convenient to use. It prints photo from tablets and smartphones. It is a pocket size device which is quite easy to use.
HP Sprocket Photo Printer connects with Android or iOS device through Bluetooth. It promises to be perfect for tablets, but it seems to be designed for smartphones only. Wallet sized printer may prove inappropriate or costly for relatively bigger devices.

Working mechanism of Printer
Tthe printer doesn’t need any sort of virtual configuration or set up. Only prerequisite is to download Sprocket app from the app store and device is ready for use with your smartphone.
The second step is opening up of Bluetooth and pairing of your smartphone device with the printer. Once the printer is connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, you can easily share photographs from your library to this printer. Pairing of device is also not much difficult. At times Sprocket app is enough and it does the task automatically, once you need to share.
The device also needs HP’s special Zink sticky backed papers. Re-filling papers is also very much easy. One only has to lift the lid and place papers in it.back to menu ↑
Quality of Photo
The most important feature that any one should be concerned about is the photo quality. Usually, such printers are not efficient in offering high definition results.
Getting a fine quality photo or at least one that doesn’t leave any smudges is going to be a tricky process. After taking or sharing one photograph user has to wait for at least five minutes to take the next print. Reason is that consecutives prints can give the results with smudges.
Working mechanism of Zink papers is a bit different. Apparently, papers may seem white but they have colors that are invisible to users. Prints are created by sensing the temperature difference. Further, Zink printer is likely to heat up different coloured parts more accurately.
Apart from less HD quality, photograph size is only 2×3. Such photographs are indeed a great option for taking instant photos when required. One can’t rely on this device for getting photo prints from a wedding function or other such party due to size and quality limitations.
Further, device is great for doing fun in a friends gathering and immediately getting results.back to menu ↑
Agood photo printer also needs to be portable. HP Sprocket is the best device in this regard. The design is light in weight and device weighs overall 6.1 Ounces only.
At once, it can hold 30 prints. One battery life accounts for almost 50 prints. Being in far off area or on outing carries the chances of running out of the charge. A micro USB cable for charging the device is available. The cable comes with the package.
As per as design and weight is concerned HP Sprocket is the optimum choice.back to menu ↑
