Graphic rich labels, wireless communication, quick production of receipts, resistance to accidental damage, or just a reliable workhorse printer - whatever you need, the Printek MtP300 Mobile Thermal Printer can provide. All popular wireless options, including IrDA, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, are available. Truly mobile, this lightweight printer can be used in any orientation and can be mounted or carried.

Couple that with the printer's wide range of media options, and you'll find the MtP300 the perfect mobile printing partner for your needs. The standard MtP300 model accepts a large continuous roll for a maximum number of print jobs between reloads. The MtP300LP (label printer) includes enhancements such as positioning sensors to optimize printing of labels.

The printer is overmolded with shock absorbing elastomer, capable of withstanding repeated 4' drops to concrete. A Li-ION battery pack provides enough power to print over 500 times on one charge. The battery can be recharged in about 2 hours, using the built-in charger or the easy to use external battery charger (option).

MtP series printers feature best-in-breed power management, full on board menu selections, a useful suite of integration and configuration utilities and tools, advanced security features on bluetooth models, and emulations of popular printer brands. MtP printers are a virtual drop-in solution for many existing mobile printing applications.
