  • 98" Maximum Scan Length
  • Scan Almost Any Flat Surface
  • Battery Operated
  • Stores Images on microSD Card

The handheld Magic Wand Portable Scanner (Blue) from VuPoint scans documents, photos, newspapers, and virtually any smooth surface onto a microSD card. With a scan area of 8.27 x 25" (or up 98" inches at lower resolutions), the scanner can store any letter or legal size document or image. Take the portable scanner with you to the library and scan what you need for later, no need to waste paper or money on photocopies. When you get home, simply connect the scanner to your computer with the supplied USB cable to transfer your scans. If you scanned a text document, once your file is on the computer, you can use the included OCR (optical character recognition) software to convert any printed material into editable text (Windows only; not compatible with Mac OS).

The scanner runs on 2 AA batteries so you can easily replace them when they run out; no need to carry a charger around with you. Using standard AA batteries, the scanner can perform at least 180 color scans or 200 monochrome scans. The LCD displays the device's status and other important info. The scanner weighs only 6.9 oz (including the batteries) and is only 10 x 1.2 x 1 inches, making it a great way to store documents and photos on the go.

Please note that the Magic Wand requires a microSD card to operate

        Comments about VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner (Blue):

        It's hard to get a straight scan without using some kind of guide. And, of course, you need a flat surface to roll the wand across the page so magazine scans are a bit awkward. And the high resolution scan doesn't really preserve any more detail so 300 dpi is the most useful setting. On the plus side, it is very lightweight, easy to use, produces excellent color and gradations. With a guide or using the table (which I bought based on a previous review), the scans are comparable to the ones off my Canon Pixma 530. You do have to scan slowly at about 1 inch per second to avoid scan errors.

            This portable scanner worked great right out of the box. The small size and easy operation make it a great tool.

              I love it, It is easy to use and very portable. But you should advertise a little more..the optional scanner table that makes scanning even easier.One would have to be a person who is never satisfied to find fault with this unit..
