The Wasp WWS100i cordless pocket barcode scanner comes with a 6' USB cable and a hand strap and can be used to scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. The barcode reader is small enough to be held in the hand, put into a pocket, or attached to a lanyard. CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors can scan barcodes from up to 5.5" away and at a speed of up to 240 scans per second in continuous mode. The barcode scanner can read barcodes with a print contrast ratio as low as 30 percent. Wireless Bluetooth capability allows the barcode reader to transmit data to an Android or iOS mobile device (sold separately) when up to 33' away. The USB cable can be connected to the USB port of a computer or host system (sold separately) to transmit barcode data and recharge the barcode reader. The lithium-ion battery enables the barcode reader to be used continually for up to 8 hours and make up to 5,000 scans on one charge. The hand strap can be used to hold the barcode reader securely. The barcode reader weighs 0.87 oz. and measures 0.71 x 0.94 x 2.6 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) It can withstand drops of up to 5' on a concrete floor.
Barcode scanners, also known as barcode readers, can be used to scan and decode barcodes and to transmit barcode data to a computer or another host system. Barcode readers with a single-line laser can be used to scan linear, one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. Some lasers can produce light in an omnidirectional pattern to allow scanning of barcodes from different angles. Other barcode readers contain CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors instead of a laser for accuracy and wear resistance. Barcode scanners with raster scanning, area imaging, and other scanning technologies can allow scanning of two-dimensional (2D) or Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes, among other types. Some barcode readers provide onboard flash memory to allow the storage of barcode data before transmitting it to a computer or host system through a USB cable or wireless WLAN or Bluetooth connection. Many barcode readers have a handle for handheld use and come with a stand or a charging cradle for fixed position applications, while others are designed for stationary use on a counter or another flat surface. Some portable readers are small enough to be carried in a pocket or attached to a lanyard. Barcode readers are used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale (POS) locations and in warehouses and shipping facilities.
Wasp Barcode Technologies manufactures barcode scanners, printers, labels and other data capture and tracking solutions for businesses. The company, founded in 1994, is headquartered in Plano, TX.

Top customer reviews
-Cheap vs competitors scanners on the market (I paid $158 vs $300 for a scanfob).
-Easy to install, connects immediately through bluetooth, no Serial Magic Gears needed.
-Thinner than Scanfob
-Scans relatively well
-Friendly and easily accessible customer support.
-Doesn't work perfectly with Profit Bandit (Enter must be hit manually after scanning, backspace must be hit to start a new scan, this is a huge waste of time and inconvenience).
-Scan range does not work as well as scanfob.
-Had some issues with it not working with Scanpower Webscout earlier, maybe just a one time glitch but it will be problematic if it happens again.
-Neatoscan - works perfectly no issues
-Profit Bandit - scans but you will need to hit enter and then clear previous data before next scan
-Scanpower Webscout - seems to work fine although I did have a glitch earlier (possibly a Wasp error, either way, doesn't bode well).
If you're looking to save a few bucks this is a nice scanner vs the more expensive options. If you're planning on using this with Profit Bandit avoid it and opt for a scanfob.
Since I had not scanned anywhere near the stated 5,000 between charges, I thought it odd. But, I connected to my laptop's USB charging port (it did not come with the stated BT adapter or a wall wort to charge) and waited another 4 hours.
After the wait, I disconnected the Wasp and tried to scan a ticket. It gave an odd series of beeps and seemingly died. I get no response when I push the button. I have yet to contact the manufacturer, as it has a one year warranty.
I will update this review with the response I get and if issued another one, how I make out with it. It's disappointing really, since if it would work correctly, I want my company to buy a bunch of them to help manage our inventory.
After a great discussion with WASP tech support, I was able to get it working again. As it turns out, the USB port on the device was a bit tight. So, I wasn't pushing the connector in far enough, which led to a bad connection when charging. As soon as I made sure to seat the connector fully, it's been charging and working like a dream.
