Technology is a funny thing. One day we’re talking about self-driving cars, the other we’re praying for our printer to really impress with that document we so urgently need. Yes, it does seem that printers didn’t catch up with all the technological trends.

But fear not! We’ve compiled the 4 best portable printers that won’t let you down when you really need them.

1. HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer

At less than three inches wide and five inches long, the Sprocket is portable in every sense of the word. Simply connect your smartphone or tablet to the printer using the included HP app and print beautiful HD-quality prints anywhere.

Simply connect your smartphone via Bluetooth and turn any social media pic into an instant classic. You can even choose from a wide range of customizable options, including seasonal templates, sepia filters and more.
