The compact Magic Wand Portable Scanner With Auto-Feed Docking Station from VuPoint Solutions combines the best of both a portable scanner and a desktop scanner in 1 unit. The Magic Wand scans documents, photos, newspapers, and virtually any smooth surface onto a microSD card up to 32GB. The scans can be saved as either JPG or PDF files. The scanner can be used anywhere thanks to the unit's rechargeable battery which lasts for approximately 400 scans. When you're at your desk, simply attach the Magic Wand to the docking station and automatically feed pages through the scanner for more accurate scans. With a scan area of up to 8.35 x 130.0" (at 300 dpi), the scanner can store any letter or legal size document or image. For higher quality results, the resolution can be set to 600 or 900dpi, or 1200dpi when docked. 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 via the supplied USB cable and transfer your scans and charge the battery. If you scan a text document, once your file is on the computer, you can use the included OCR (optical character recognition) software to convert the scan into editable text (Windows only).
