I have a portable scanner.


@Virginiarogers43- I use my IPhone to scan an ID and upload into snapdocs. However, for multiple page documents, I use a regular scanner.
@marcia3641 - what type of portable scanner do you use? I am trying to find one that is reasonably priced and works well.


I also use a scanner - Brother ADS-2200


I have a scanner at home but was press for time today so I went to Staples. Huge mistake! I paid over $20 for 35 pages. Never again. I need a portable scanner.

YIKESSSS!!! :open_mouth:

I have the Epson WorkForce ES-300W Wireless Portable Scanner. Should have invested in this years ago.


I have a scanner on my laser multifunction printer and (for fax backs) and I have a HP 7000s3 scanner. I use my phone to scan ID’s and additional docs.

:hushed: :astonished:

I just got a Doxie pro SE wireless portable scanner. Going to try that out after some “practice” to get a workflow right when scanning huge packages.

I have an Epson ES400 wireless scanner. Love it!!

I recently bought a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX1500 and I love it!
At first I bought the Epson Workforce es-500w but exchanged it for the Fujitsu because it didn’t bring any instruction on how to maneuver the scanner :roll_eyes: and for the cost ($400) it wasn’t worthy.

I use my phone for smaller scans but i have a Brothers ADS-1700W portable scanner. When i started, i didnt have this. Now that I do, it was a life changer. In my trunk of my car there is a cigarette lighter thingy where i plug in a converter. The converter has 4 usb plugs and two regular plugs. The one i bought converts to enough voltage to power my scanner. I also use it to charge my laptop. I have this outlets in the front seats and the back seats of my car that i can plug my converter into, but i find it useful that i can plug it into my trunk and sit comfortably (I have a Mazda CX-5). This converter would not power a printer. The Brother ADS-1700W has the continuous scanning function, this allows me to scan a full package quickly.

I still don’t buy a portable scanner because my clients don’t demand scanbaks, very rare, except to upload picture IDs, and that I can do it with my phone. It’s still needed, the scanner, you’ll never know when they request the whole package or part of it.

I have the ES200, it’s all that was available. I love it. So fast.

Which one? is it high volume? How many pages are a typical scan back?

Is anyone charging additional for scan backs?

No, I never charge extra for additional documents or scanbacks, because they may pay me more if I ask, but then may never call me again for work. I have a wireless mobile scanner (Epson ES-300w) and laptop (Microsoft Surface Laptop Go) to scanback documents from the signer’s table or from my car. Drop docs and head home. It’s definitely worth the investment.

Do it scan legal and letter without issues?

Yes, the Epson ES-300W will scan both legal and letter sized pages and borrower’s ID’s also.
