TL;DR: I'm looking for a portable printer.

I am looking for a printer that can:

  • Print A4 size paper
  • Be carried in a backpack
  • Connect to my Windows 10 laptop and Android phone (bluetooth preferred)
  • < $150

A thermal printer is preferred, though any type will work. I have found the Brother PocketJet series but they are out of my price range.

    Do you need battery operating mode?

I'm going to recommend the HP Deskjet 460c. This printer meets your requirements, though it is not a thermal printer. It supports printing directly from Android via a wifi connection (no router needed AFAIK) using their official free app. It has a bluetooth receiver built in, but I'm not sure whether the app uses it. It comes with a battery.
