What is the best portable printer?


by @matthiasezeitler | 6yr  | 4 comments

Any recommendations for a portable printer that is light and can print A4 sized pages?
At times I have bought cheap โ€œthrow awayโ€ printers when I stayed longer at a location, but I havent really found a good solution that I can just keep in my luggage.

Any recommendations?

I would like a zutalabs mini printer (b/w only). I think in principle it could print ANY format (even several square metres), as long as the ink lasts. The principle is that the printer moves, not the paper. Alas, the price โ€ฆ

Just did my search before posting the same question and came across yours. Weโ€™re swimming in similar waters Matthais! It was nice reading your survivor story from coboat. :slight_smile: Hope all is well.

I came across the Brother pocketjet, which is a thermal printer @ 300dpi. Canonโ€™s Pixma iP100 has excellent review and is inkjet, but a bit bulky still - 12.7 x 2.4 x 7.2in and 4.4lbs.

I usually only print b&w for legal/business docs, so thermal may work, but damn itโ€™s expensive. Iโ€™ll stick to internet cafeโ€™s at the price.

Curious to know if anyone here has recommendations or has used one of the above.

Yes, the pocketjet is the most portabe solution. but pretty expensive. Even old/used ones on ebay are still over โ‚ฌ200 without the battery. And spending โ‚ฌ600+ just to be able to print seemed to much.

I changed my behaviour since asking the question to print significantly less when traveling and use the hotel or coworking space for things like boarding passes.

The Zutalabs device would be a good option, but it is not relased yet. And there are doubts on their Kickstarter comment section if and when it will be available.

Anyone wants to learn to sail in the Mediterranean? (Sep or Oct)

 

by @viktor | 5h 5 hours ago | 0 comments

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?

Where do you work from in Lisbon? ๐Ÿงณโ˜•

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @dominiksobe | 2d 2 days ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone,

I am going to move to Lisbon in July and I was wondering where you guys work from? Do you have any recommendations for working on a budget? Any good cafรจs or cheap coworking spaces?

I did some research and found some coworking spaces for > ~ 100โ‚ฌ p. month which is pretty reasonable but too much for me right now.

Thanks!

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 5d 5 days ago | 37 comments

Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Wonโ€™t keep my US Verizon account due to cost and currently plan to use local sims at each destination (T-Mobile and Project Fi are NOT an option as they terminate for continuous roaming). In summation, I wonโ€™t have a US mobile account.

Unless Iโ€™m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue Iโ€™ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Canโ€™t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.

Bali to focus on attracting remote workers when the island reopens for tourism


by @levelsio | 13d 12 days ago | 0 comments

When reopening for tourism, Bali says it will focus on attracting remote workers to choose the island as their workplace:

"We will focus on a new pattern of how Bali is not just for leisure, but indeed to work in Bali as well"

Recommendations for a portable speaker system suitable for a DJ monitor while travelling? Preferring size over loudness


by @jack700 | 2yr 1 year ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™ve got myself a DDJ 400 DJ controller, and the compact size makes it ideal to throw into my suitcase while I go travelling next year.

It made me wonder if there was a decent portable speaker system thatโ€™s loud (and clear) enough for light bedroom DJing I could pack alongside the 400 to practice new tracks and record mixes.

I currently have a Bose Soundlink Mini II which was surprisingly good for the job. Although I feel itโ€™ll probably damage if I keep pumping at full pelt, and itโ€™s not quite loud enough for what I wanted but not far off at all.

I ordered a pair of iLoud Micro Monitors, and although seriously impressed with the sound quality, I ended up returning them for KRK Rokit 5 G3โ€™s as they were too heavy for permanent (Digital Nomad) travelling so thought Iโ€™d get some solid DJ speakers in the meantime.

Portable external laptop battery for MacBook Pro?


by @pezmc | 4yr 4 years ago | 4 comments

Hi all,

Iโ€™ve been doing some research on external batteries for the MacBook having seen a HyperJuice in someoneโ€™s desk shot. There was also a thread on this about a year ago: Whatโ€™s the best portable battery charger for a MacBook?

My findings so far are that itโ€™s very important which laptop you have. A MacBook โ€˜Newโ€™ (USB-C) seems to have the most options, followed by a MacBook Air which has a low power requirement, the MacBook Pro 13" which has a medium power requirement and the MacBook Pro 15" which has a very high power requirement and very limited options.

Iโ€™ve found the below, have any of you used/tried them? Do you know of any alternatives? Personally Iโ€™m looking for something that works well with the MacBook Pro 15" but share anything as others may find it useful!

  • HyperJuice - comes in sizes 60/100/150/222WH - requires a modification to your MacBook charger as they canโ€™t use the patented MagSafe2 adapter.
  • BatteryBox - 60 Wh - uses a custom compatible charger that works with the Air/Pro/MacBook
  • ChugPlug - 65 Wh - MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13" only, small battery capacity
  • Xiaomi power bank - ~80 Wh - MacBook USB-C only

Iโ€™m an illustrator, and I really need a scanner since most of my illustrations are handmade. So I would like to know if thereยดs any portable scanner you guys recommend or how easy is to find scanners in the coworking spaces. Thanks =)
