Recomendations for a good compact ink jet printer

I'm looking to get a printer on board to make life easier when checking in to various ports where I need to print out documents. Most of the printers I have seen are quite large and I'd rather not take up that much space. Any recommendations? Something that could be powered off of USB-C and have bluetooth or wifi would be ideal. I don't need to print photos or anything fancy, just plain old b&w documents.

Re: Recomendations for a good compact ink jet printer

I had Canon mini printers on board twice.. They were terrible. the printing heads would go bad and were very expensive. Like half the cost of a printer. The mini printer was expensive in the first place.
I'm not sure what to tell you, but I would probably see if there is a mini laser printer so you dont have to deal with ink and it's problems drying out etc for a minimal use printer.
Hopefully someone has more up to date info than me.

I've been using a Brother printer at home, it cost $60 new and has worked for 4 years or so now. The previous one lasted about 4 years. Ink is readily available for $1-2.

I see they have smaller ones too now.
