When you’re working in a store, warehouse, or your own home, a wireless barcode scanner makes quick work of inventory time. Most models transmit data via Bluetooth and have rechargeable batteries for continuous use. Some can also remember things you’ve scanned until you’re ready to connect your computer or phone. Whether you’re scanning books, packages, or groceries, we’ve found the best wireless barcode scanners to meet your needs.

Eyoyo Mini 1D Wireless Barcode Scanner

The thin form fits in pockets or bags

Need a scanner you can keep comfortably in your pocket or bag? This mini version has you covered. You'll get 15 hours of scan time on a full charge of the lithium-ion battery, and up to 720 hours of standby time. It connects to your Windows 7/8/10, Android, and iOS devices with Bluetooth 4.0 or over your 2.4G wireless network.

Simply scanning

Keying in barcodes by hand can be incredibly time-consuming and tedious. For most people, we think the NADAMOO Wireless Barcode Scanner is the best pick from our collection. The onboard storage is impressive, meaning you won’t have to worry about maintaining a connection to any device while you use it. The stand is built into the handle, so there’s no extra hardware to keep track of when you want to scan continuously. 

Taking a scanner to a grocery, hardware, or design store can also be useful. In this case, we’d recommend the Eyoyo Mini 1D Wireless Barcode Scanner. The smaller form factor is better suited for travel than the larger models, and the included wristlet keeps it from slipping away from your grasp.
