On a single charge you can get anywhere up to 25 photos printed. You even get 10 photo sheets free with the Sprocket Plus. You can buy further sheets later, in packs of 20 after you run out of the original bunch.
Where the Sprocket originated:
Going hand in hand with the selfie trend, which is all the rage these days, many companies started making printers which could print photos wirelessly. But none of them were pocket friendly in that I mean that none of them fit in the pocket.
Then came along the HP Sprocket, which was pocket friendly, if you know what I mean. Measuring less than a 5 inch smartphone, it fits easily into one’s pocket. HP came up with the printer for the “millennials” with their new HP Sprocket.
Cool Thing about Zink Tech:
The HP Sprocket Plus as well as its predecessor prints images using zink tech which means zero ink tech. The HP Sprocket plus comes with zink photo sheets that already has crystals embedded in the sheets which the printer heats up to lay color.
