Really hope someone will comment on this. I just spent an hour on the net researching this and still come away confused. I want to temporarily (2 - 4 yrs) run a complete mobile office for my floral business. I'm in my van more than anywhere else...I want to be able to print out an invoice or estimate while in between two points thruout my day. I have a galaxy tablet and like the android system. But when I google info or even ask outright (@ a verizon store for example), I can't get a straight answer.

Is there such a thing as a mobile printer that I can connect to/thru my galaxy tab and use with a car charger adaptor?
If so, what do I look for and where do I buy it?
I want one bill...for my phone, tablet & printer usage. I do not want a cable bill; I do not want to run on Fios.
Does something like this exist? The internet seems to be giving me conflicting answers.

Thanks!

Doesn't HP's ePrint service do what you want. I believe you can print from anywhere using ePrint. I haven't tried it, but there is an app on my iPad for it, is there an Android App for your tablet?

Thx dkf747 for your feedback. I did see the hp eprint, but everything i see on site makes it seem as tho i can send document to print remotely, but it's still going to come out of a printer at home or office. I need a printer inside my vehicle. I cant find one that would (i am guessing) run off my van battery.

Oh, I see. I don't know how to do that.

1. Amazon.com: PrinterShare Mobile Print: Appstore for Android
I have it (I got it free from Amazon Free App Of The Day) and it works well with Android, finding printers and has a generic driver. I would not recommend it if you want color and images, but for basic invoicing I think it would be adequate.
It offers Bluetooth connection to printer.

2. Mobile and Bluetooth-capable:

Or....

2. A cheap laser printer, B&W, with wireless capability. I say cheap, because you will be running around and bouncing it and you may exceed the high or low operating temperatures for the device.

3. A power inverter that will deliver adequate 120V power for the printer from a power port in your van, or wired into its electric system.

4. A UPS with surge control, since the inverter will deliver "dirty power."
