What’s bad is when you purchase a printer, cheap or pricey, it does not include the USB printer cable. Why? That’s like not including the power cord. Worse yet, the USB printer cables, six feet long, in most retail stores will cost you $20 plus. What a scam!
Forget that non-sense and run down to your local .99 cent store and look in their small electrical section. I can almost guarantee that you will find a six feet long USB printer cable for the most reasonable price anywhere, a mere .99 cents. Heck, you might grab a few of them! Get one each for your friends and family. My employer, a non-profit company, bought 10 or 20 for future needs. You can’t go wrong having extra. We pull them off the shelf any time we need another. Enjoy!
Most cell phones and other electronic devices have travel chargers sold as accessories… for additional $30 plus. Try buying an inverter for your vehicle, with a one-time cost for $29 and use the standard wall charger that was included with the original purchase of your electrical device instead. As often as we upgrade cell phones or have multiple cells: work, home, and other small rechargeable devices, it could amount to some savings and greater versatility in the long run. This is essentially a universal travel charger.
I’ve personally been using the one that you see in the photo, purchased at Radio Shack for $29 dollars + tax. I commute an hour to and from work daily and charge my work and personal cell phones often. The idea came to me, when our work cell phones were upgraded, yet this time I wasn’t offered a travel charger. Either I buy it myself or risk having my work cell phone lose it’s charge, and it did, a few times. Not long after that, I realized I had this inverter just laying around and thought I’d give it a try. This may or may not be for you, but I’m not complaining. I love my new handy dandy universal travel charger.
