Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer
Polaroid hold a place in every retro loving Joe’s heart, so we’re always excited when they release new products. The company’s latest offering is their version of an instant printer, and they’re calling it the Polaroid Zip.
The Zip is the size of your phone and it wirelessly prints photos in less than a minute. You can edit your photo, add text or graphics before printing it off and giving it to your mum.
You can connect to your Zip to your phone using either Bluetooth for longer distances or NFC technology if you’re no more than 4cm away from your phone – most handy if you’re in a crowded space and can’t find your Bluetooth connection! Either way, Polaroid have got your covered.
Zip uses ZINK paper that contains dye crystals which are activated upon printing. There is no ink whatsoever involved. No toner either. Just fresh hot prints whenever you want them. It’s powered by an internal lithium-ion battery. One charge handles up to 25 prints, and you can recharge it using the accompanying chord.
The Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer is due for release of the 1st May and will set you back around £110 for the Zip. Prints will set you back around £15 for 100, which is pretty good compared too other on the market. We know there are a few other similar products on the market but instant printing is Polaroid’s bread and butter so we’re certain it’ll be high in quality.
