If you are interested in printers for Linux computers, here is a site I
use to check out printer compatibility:
They list printers and how well a particular printer will work or is
implemented under Linux, BSD, etc. and supply drivers, if needed. They
once had a chart of printers and listed how well they work.
Another option for running printers off 12 volts could be an
"inverter". They are reasonably cheap at places like Harbor Freight
and others. You can probably find one to power a printer. Beware that
some of these inverters may not put out a sine wave, so best to ask both
the printer supplier and the inverter supplier about this compatibility
issue. If the printer has a switching power supply, it shouldn't be a
problem. But if it has a transformer power supply (even some
"wall-warts") then it could be a problem.
Hope this helps.

Does anyone use or know of good portable/mobile printers to carry with you when you have to work-on-the-move? I have already asked at LinuxQuestions but many of my company's outreach workers use Windows. Anyway, here's the LQ thread ...
We are hoping to prepare a funding application detailing how much it would cost to provide 1 outreach workers with a tablet and a printer and then we can show how much we need for all of them or how many we could "make do with". Obviously it takes a long time for funders to respond and even if successful the money takes even longer to arrive so i'm not looking for cheapest one-off deals. I'm looking for reasonably reliable models and manufacturers and then i can look-up how much they cost.
I've had a lot of questions about printers generally this year and they always seem to be a pita to
look after. So, on LQ i am hoping to start a poll to find which manufacturer people prefer.
Unfortunately i can only think of a very few; Hewlett Packard, Cannon, Brother, Oki and Ricoh. I
feel like i am missing some very obvious ones. If you can think of any please can you let me know
in this thread or at LQ
