Uses an impossible to find battery
on May 8, 2012
I wanted to like this but can't. Didn't buy it here but this is what I discovered: This small version of the Vupoint handheld scanner (also referred to as magic wand jr.) uses a 4.2 V rechargeable polymer battery that's impossible to replace. Mine came with a dead battery that won't charge. Called Vupoint who instructed me to mail it back to them and they'd replace the battery for me. I searched high and low for someone online who sold these and guess what? Nobody sells them. I chose to return the scanner and purchase the larger model which takes plain old AA batteries.
