    i am looking for suggestions for printers that do A4 paper

    here are stuff i dont like about them so far

    Thermal ; curls the paper and thermal paper it got more expensive cause the old paper give people cancer and stuff

    Plain consumer ink jet; ink expensive and hard to find monochrome

    Ecotank: clogs very fast if not used daily

    Laser: it usually uses 300+ Watts and can kill some fuse if more stuff is connected

    I thought Laser was best choice if people don’t want to deal with inkjet printers. Laser is good if printing lots of stuff and nothing to clog. Any inverter today should have no problem powering a laser printer. I never used use only had inkjet printers. You could just pink something every week or two if inkjet printer if you don’t want laser printers

    All inkjets I’ve had clog when not used for several days or weeks.
    Laser is my preferred printer. I had an 1,800 watt inverter which handled the startup surge no problem.

    I use thermal. I buy the fold paper instead of rolls so it doesn’t get curled up. Not the best quality but does the job for me all the time.

    I use a 10 year old Canon ip100 with optional battery pack... it'll print about 250 pages before recharging. And have had almost zero problems with it clogging
