The Brother PT-H500LI Handheld Label Printer is a handheld label maker that can run on either battery (included rechargeable Li-ion or optional AA) or AC power and can connect to a computer for increased functionality. The PT-H500LI has a printer resolution of 180 dpi, providing a good resolution for text printing. It works with the TZe tape family and can hold a max tape size of 0.94" x 26.2'.

The printer features thermal printing technology so that you do not have to worry about ink levels while printing. There is even an automatic cutter for producing labels with the precise length needed for the job. This allows the PT-H500LI to print at speeds of up to 1.2" per second with AC power or 0.8" per second with the rechargeable Li-ion battery. Additionally, you check what you print with the 16-character by 3-line backlit LCD display and utilize the built-in QWERTY keyboard.

For additional features and capabilities, this printer can be plugged into a computer with a USB cable. You can then use the included P-touch Editor software for Mac or Windows to design more elaborate and exact labels. The PT-H500LI includes the AC adapter, battery, USB cable, CD-ROM, and a Black on White Standard Laminated TZe Starter Tape that measures 0.94" x 13.1'.
