Interesting article to read, http://www.digitallifesavers.com/portable-inkjet-vs-dye-sublimation-printers
Thanks, TTT, but I need to be able to offer 8x6 inch prints, not just 6x4 inch.
Good to know, though, and thanks for the answer.
I don't power a printer, however I do power other 240v products using an inverter connected to 12v car/leisure battery. However depending on your power requirements a car battery may not be necessary. I can power a 40w moth trap bulb on a small 15amp sealed lead acid battery all night and the battery only measures 6x4x4 inches.
Advice on choosing the right inverter for your needs can be found by visiting this SITE which is where I bought my last one. I'd imagine you wouldn't need anything more powerful than a 150-300w to power a printer, but that's something you'll need to check for yourself.
Cheers, Ade. Someone else mentioned leisure batteries - I'll read up!!
Leisure batteries are designed for long discharge at moderate current whereas car batteries are designed to deliver the enormous current that a starter-motor needs but only for a short time. Also, leisure batteries are intended to be carried around.
Is anyone using a battery powered printer such as a Canon PIXMA iP100, please?
