The stunning Memobird G2 is, to the best of my knowledge, the newest and smallest WiFi thermal printer that supports remote wireless printing of text and pictures.

This is handled quickly and effortlessly through the friendly Memobird app. The innovative printer is targeted at the mainstream computer user, ensuring that it's both easy to use and affordable price (just $57.36 on Gearbest). What's more, the printer provides support for adding friends and sharing moments for even richer interaction possibilities. Thermal printers were previously only used for commercial applications, however, the Memobird G2 has transformed our expectations and is designed for everyone to use. The question is: do we really need a portable WiFi printer? Let's find out!

Pros   Cons

Incredibly compact and lightweight for easy carry and storage.

Change the way you make memos, personal notes, or menus, conveniently attaching them to visible locations.

User-friendly design with easygoing appearance.

Great for retro, or black and white copies of your favorite pictures.

Equipped with Memobird app for fast and easy prints of your mobile phone photos.

Ideal for both home and commercial/retail users.


× Resolution is comparatively low, grayscale provides limited options. However, it's enough to meet the majority of your daily needs in most situations.

× Designed for short-medium term printed output; thermal printing paper gradually fades after approx. 4 months.

× Doesn't come with an English user manual, so I write this article to help you wonderful people!

× Software is not perfect. The Memobird app is not very international, it doesn't support sharing on Facebook.

× Unable to use external battery power. It would be better if we could use this cool WiFi printer without needing to plug it in to massively extend its versatility and the number of usage cases.

Memobird G2 Overview

As soon as I received my review sample from our supplier, I literally could not wait to unbox this! So what was in the box? One stunning looking printer, a single US plug power adapter (integrated design with micro USB cable) and a simple user manual. That's it! Incredibly minimalist and simple – just like the printer itself.

Memobird G2 Overview

The design of the Memobird WiFi printer is distinctive and full of charm, the rounded egg shape gives this portable printer a fun and friendly appearance that also serves to underscore that it's suitable for everyone. The smooth curves are immediately beautiful and welcoming. Simply put, the overall design language is a massive improvement compared to the previous generation's G1.

Looking behind the WiFi printer, we find the power port (Micro USB). Compared to the previous generation, the port location is more recessed which conveniently allows for a more secure connection – another smart design decision.

The MEMOBIRD logo is also very cute: a dove holding an envelope in its mouth to represent delivering messages, which accurately reflects the main function of this printer.


Below the front facing logo, you can find a physical button with its own indicator light; this reflects the current status with different flashes. Above the logo is the paper out slot, with small, conveniently-placed metal teeth for tearing off any paper you printed.

The Memobird G2 printer utilizes the snap fixture method, the upper cover can be safely opened by your thumb – although your first few attempts might need a little effort until you become more familiar. A roll of thermal paper is pre-loaded inside the printer for free, a nice touch. For reference, the Memobird G2 supports standard 57 x 50mm thermal paper which you can also easily find it on Gearbest at incredibly low prices.

Memobird G2 allows sharing with your friends so he/she can also access the printer.

The QR code is visible on the bottom right corner of the included Chinese user manual.

You can use your phone to scan the QR code, and download and install the proprietary Memobird app on to your phone. (Or you can search for "Memobird" on your Android Market or App Store). Even without any on/off buttons, the printer is very easy to operate – you just need to connect the power. Power consumption is very low: the printer only draws power when printing. You can print images, text memos, and other compact notes.

The first time you use the printer requires some quick configuration using the Cloud Mode.
