HP Sprocket design and features
The Sprocket ships in a small box, with just a manual, Micro-USB cable, and a single packet of 10 ZINK printable sheets. It’s available in three colours so you can get one to match your smartphone. The Sprocket measures 116 x 75 x 23mm and weighs 172g, which makes it very pocketable. The body is built primarily of plastic and feels quite sturdy. The glossy finish looks good but picks up hairline scratches very easily.
The body has a bronze strip running along its side, with the HP logo and model name in the same colour. The top portion slides open, and this is how you load it with sheets. There’s a single slot in the front from which processed photos are pushed out. Around the back, there’s a lanyard loop, reset pin hole, Micro-USB port, and two LED indicators. The LED to the right of the Micro-USB port glows white when the printer is on and functioning properly, while the one on the left tells you the battery status and glows red when it’s low. There’s only a power button on the side.
