Honeywell Voyager 1202g Battery Free

Voyager 1202g Battery Free Barcode Scanner


Built on the ever enduring Voyager platform, the 1202g-bf wireless scanner is the first cordless scanner to be battery free.

The Voyager 1202g-bf laser scanner supports the same robust scan engine the Voyager series has been so successful with. Capable of capturing poor quality or even damaged bar codes, the 1202g-bf linear scanner is an ideal choice for businesses needing a secondary scanner with mobility capabilities.

Bluetooth connectivity provides you with the freedom to roam up to 33’ from the scanners base, making the 1202g-bf ideal to capture barcodes on larger items left in carts. A built in paging system on the base will help you locate your scanner when it gets lost.

Applying break though battery free technology, the Voyager 1202g-bf uses a super-capacitor that can be fully charged in 20 seconds via the wall power adapter with enough energy for 100 scans. By eliminating the wastefulness and hassle of traditional replaceable batteries the 1202g-bf is Honeywell’s most ecologically friendly scanner.

With the ability to endure over 250,000 scan cycles, Honeywell’s 3 year warranty is more likely to expire before your scanner does.

***Please note*** This quick charge scanner will only hold a charge off of its base up to 4-5 minutes. For businesses who might struggle to replace the scanner back onto its charger we recommend the Voyager 1202g.

Honeywell 1202g Barcode Scanner Review Video

Hi this is Travis from POSGuys.com. Today we're going to take a look at a barcode scanner, the 1202g Bluetooth Barcode scanner by Honeywell. This is the Bluetooth version of one of their most popular barcode scanners the Honeywell Voyager. Traditionally you'll see it in a hands free type of mode where it is sitting in a stand. This is a Bluetooth version for those that like the capabilities of the Voyager but need to go without a cable.

There are two main versions of it. The regular 1202g that uses a battery and the 1202g-bf which is a battery-free. Instead of a battery it uses a super capacitor. All that means is that instead of a traditional battery the capacitor has the ability to charge very quickly but it also holds less of a charge. So you'll need to be in the stand more often but when you do need a quick charge it is very quick, we're talking like a minute and a half and it will go from completely discharged to fully charged. You would be limited in our testing to about 70 scans and that is assuming rapid scanning. If you're going to do a scan, walk away from the scanner, leave it off the stand, come back scan another thing you will get far less scans so it is important to return it to the charger but if it is completely discharged it does charge fast. So think about your operations and that is the type of scanner you would want to go with.

Your Voyager is going to have pretty good 1D scanning capabilities with a standard UPC code you can get anywhere from almost contact out to about a foot. You're going to have to play with it. It depends on the quality of the barcode and how reflective the barcode is but at best on a standard UPC you are looking at about a foot to about eight inches. With the bigger barcodes you'll have more range. Can go a little further away and with a 1D laser you need to be lined up fairly perpendicular with the lines. Going off center you won't be able to get a read. In a bright light condition like outdoors or under spotlights of sorts you're going to have difficulty getting a read but with the spotlight pulled back you can start getting a read but it is pretty difficult. As soon as you put it back in the bright light it is not going to be easy to read you are going to have to pull it back quite a bit. So obviously not ideal for a bright light condition.

The charging cradle on the scanner is pretty straightforward. It is a drop in cradle so you just set it in and it charges. You have indicator lights. When it blinks that means it is charging. When it is fully solid green that means it is fully charged. The read light means that the base has power. There is a paging functionality should you misplace the scanner. Press the paging button and your scanner will beep. By activating the trigger it will stop the beeping. There is also a little hook for a wall mounting scanner. This piece pulls down. Once that is pulled down like that then the scanner can drop in and it can be charged vertically if you want to do it like that. The charge, the communication cable for the scanner plugs into the back, it is replaceable, you can use USB today and if you want to change to a new USB cable in the future or if a new technology comes out if you want to go to like a Serial connection you can order a serial cable.

The scanner also features toolless replacement of the batteries. The battery free version you can't do this the ability is locked out. On the batteried version you lift this tab up. This piece pops out and the battery slides out so if you want to stock a couple different batteries and switch them out between shifts you can do that. Just slides back in, snaps back down and then your scanner is good to go.

This is the Honeywell Voyager 1202g and 1202g battery free. They are both good 1D retail scanners definitely you should consider if you want a companion scanner to a handsfree type of scanner. Three year warranty on this unit. It also has a five foot drop spec so if it rolls off your counter and falls on the ground you are probably going to be okay it is rated at 30 drops at five feet which isn't bad for a Bluetooth laser scanner.
