Less than a foot long, the Magic Wand Portable Scanner scans documents, photos, newspapers, magazines, receipts, and more, and saves them to a microSD card (included!). It's perfect for traveling, or even simply keeping at home as an alternative to bulky scanners. Slide it into the drawstring pouch for instant protection, and easily transport it in a purse or briefcase. Because the scanner is battery powered (batteries included!), there's no hassle of trying to take a charging cable everywhere. The device is capable of saving up to 200 scans per battery refresh, making it reliable anywhere you go.
Bring it to the library and scan what you need; capture your favorite fabrics to compare later when you just can't decide; save your child's drawings digitally; scan a poster, flyer, or magazine page to share with your friends on Facebook later; archive a friend's recipe, or even a school or work document. There's no need to waste paper or money on photocopies, because this eco-friendly device reduces paper usage considerably, while still giving you quality scans which won't become lost or stained. The scanner can capture images 8.27" wide and up to 98" long in as little as 3 seconds, and you can navigate the 1" LCD screen for resolution options of 900DPI, 600DPI, or 300DPI and your choice of PDF or JPEG output formats.
When you get home, simply connect the scanner to your computer with the supplied USB cable to transfer your scans to your computer (compatible with PC and Mac). If you scanned a text document, you can even use the bonus OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert saved documents into text editable and searchable files compatible with popular word processing and spreadsheet software (Windows only; not compatible with Mac OS).
Approximate scanning speed for standard letter size paper: 300DPI- LOW resolution ≥ 3 sec. 600DPI MEDIUM resolution ≥ 8 sec. 900DPI HIGH resolution ≥12 sec
