Mobility: Experience the Freedom of True Mobility. Scan without a Computer, Cables or Software
What is mobility? It means easy-to-use technology that is flexible enough to use anywhere you are, untethered, fully compatible with your world and gear. It means information at your fingertips, integrated devices, small in size, high in performance, all the while being affordable and reliable. Until today, scanners have been, at best, portable. They were small and easy to travel with. But now it is time to think about mobility in a whole new way. Introducing Visioneer Mobility, the first truly mobile scanner that lets you scan anywhere without a computer, cords or software. You can even scan to your smartphone using the USB cable that came with your phone.
Reliable and Easy to Use
Visioneer Mobility is a small color scanner that is powered by a rechargeable battery. No computer or power connection is required to start scanning. Simply turn on the scanner, select one of three file formats (color PDF, black and white PDF or color JPG), and insert your document. Your scanned items are saved to an SD memory card (2GB card included) or a USB flash drive. Alternately, if you attach the scanner to a smartphone, your scans are saved to the phone's internal memory. Visioneer Mobility takes only 10 seconds to scan a full page at 300 dpi, and you can scan 300 pages per charge. With Visioneer's AutoLaunch technology, scanning begins as soon as documents are inserted into the scanner.
Optional Wireless Capability
Mobility can also scan your documents and wirelessly transfer the scanned JPG files with an optional Eye-Fi card (not included) inserted into your scanner. Eye-Fi is an SDHC memory card that has built-in Wi-Fi. It stores the images on your card and uses your wireless network to effortlessly transfer these images to your computer and over 25 online destinations such as Evernote, Picasa, Facebook, Shutterfly, and MobileMe. Don't run out of space on your Eye-Fi card with the Endless Memory feature that automatically makes space when your images have been safely delivered.

Top Customer Reviews
All of my applications (some are 10+ pages) need to be reviewed before I leave the client's home. The legal updates require copies of the old documents (sometimes 28+ pages). Before I got the Visioneer, I was using a fax-copy machine (large and 12+lbs). Now I can use this easy to carry scanner without a computer, without a large fax machine and without having to use lots of ink and copy paper instead. When I used the fax machine in a client's home, I had to find an electrical outlet and a phone jack close together. This is not always easy. Now I can handle everything at their kitchen table.
I have done so well with this that my district manager and other sales people in my office have already bought one for their use as well. Now others in my company are purchasing the visioneer to work with their phones instead of the old, heavy fax machine-copier.
I used it at my family reunion to scan in old photos and they turned out well too!
I use my visioneer with the data cable from the visioneer to my droid. Other's in my office have the apple phones and use either the eye fi or the camera cord to work with the visioneer. So far, we are all happy. The first charge lasted over a month with my using it to scan and transmitt over 200 pages.
With the USB aux power cord, I can even recharge using the USB outlet in my car if needed. So far, 1 full charge every month seems to work great.
One con - you can not see the pages as they transfer to your phone. You have to go into the SD card file after transmission to verify receipt of the pages. I wish there was a way to see the pages as they transmit, but I have learned to work with that and it hasn't been a problem. Just don't unplug the scanner from your phone for at least 1 1/2 mins after the last page has gone through the scanner. This will insure that all pages are in the SD card memory.
If you need to scan on the go - from your car or from out of office locations - this battery powered scanner is great.
I mainly use this for business and scan using B & W PDF for documents. I love not having to lug around the large fax-copier. I love not having to move furniture and clients' homes to find phone jacks and electrical outlets and I love how fast the scanner is compared to the older fax machine I have. If you travel for business and need copies of documents/ppwk or application or even business cards and you would like to utilize your phone instead of computer or ipad - this scanner is great. It does work with the computer and ipad; I just hate to carry phone plus everything else.
One of the tasks she's saddled herself with -- and the reason I bought her this portable scanner -- is the quest to archive her entire family's existence. To that end, she has our home office filled with large boxes of old, old photo albums. Additionally, she will be going "on site" to one of her great aunt's houses to scan photos that are (for some reason) not allowed to leave the premises. We thought about bringing a full-size flatbed scanner, but that seemed impractical. Plus, at about 30 seconds per photo, it would take her many, many hours.
On a whim, I picked up the Visioneer Mobility cordless scanner. This thing is absolutely amazing and ultra-convenient. In just a few evenings, in front of the TV watching "The Big Bang Theory" reruns (recall that this is a cordless, COMPUTER-less scanner), she managed to archive over 2,500 photos from my side of the family. Sitting tethered to a computer desk with a flatbed scanner, this accomplishment would have easily taken her ten times as long. The photos are all scanned at 300 DPI, and unprocessed, meet or exceed the quality of my $400 Epson flatbed scanner. With the supplied 2GB SD card, we calculated that you could fit ~12,000 4x6 scanned prints before needing to offload them to a PC or file server.
My wife has thanked me at least a dozen times for this handy, dandy little scanner (our agreed-upon limit is three "thanks" per gift), so in retrospect, the Visioneer Mobility mobile cordless scanner has been better received than any previous gift I've given, exceeding the appreciation of diamond earrings and expensive French perfume. If only I knew the secret to a woman's heart earlier ...
If you have mass quantities of photos or documents to scan, pick up this scanner right now. Even if you already have a high quality flatbed scanner, you'll find that this quick, handy, portable scanner will soon become the primary/exclusive method of importing photos and documents.
UPDATE: the scanner no longer works, the light flash and then it just turns off. I've checked the batter and it's fully charged. I've tried different memory stick and SD cards to no avail. He's dead Jim!
So easy to use. A power button and one button to change the format of the scanned file. Powers up in about 5 seconds.
It comes with a great case! I didn't expect that.
If I was forced to complain, I would prefer that the icons on the settings for PDFs/JPEG be larger. It's very easy to use but the icons are very small. Absolutely not a big problem, just something that would make it even better.
I can't speak to the longevity of the product but it feels well built.
If you are looking for this type of product, you found the right one!

The build qua little felt sturdy but it's too soon to see how long it holds up.
