Imagine this scenario: You’re on a business trip and need to scan some important documents. But your hotel doesn’t have any computers with scanners. And the nearest library? Too far away. Those apps that convert a picture of documents into PDFs? They can be a little rough around the edges – not exactly a sure bet when you need precision and accuracy. You could avoid all that with the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX100 Wireless Mobile Scanner.
The ScanSnap Ix100 is exactly as the name implies: a fully wireless document scanner that converts physical documents to a digital format. Just open it up, feed the document through manually, and watch them become PDFs, Word documents, JPEGs, among others. And with an optical resolution of 600 dpi, it can create faithful high-resolution images.
The iX100 is designed for portability, too; it weighs just under 15 oz and fits easily into your backpack, briefcase, or luggage bag, with an internal battery rated for about 260 scans on a full charge. Connect it with either your USB or the WiFi, use the cloud storage function when necessary, and even edit some documents directly in the scanner using some included software choices; different apps are are suited for scanning certain types of documents, such as receipts.
You probably never thought you would need a portable scanner…but if that need should ever arise, this one looks like a solid option.
