Various programs and settings support these options. Unfortunately, it is unprotected against falls and does not show any indication of performance and capacity or range.

Special feature

The USB Barcode Scanner Wireless from Gladle impresses with its light weight of only 135 g. Another advantage is that it can be used with or without cable and has a number of adjustment options.


The device is delivered in a plain cardboard box with a simple inscription. The lightweight barcode scanner has a simple, modern design and is well manufactured. Unfortunately, it is not equipped with shock protection, which makes it more vulnerable to damage.

Scan Modes

The fact that this scanner can be used both with cable and without (wireless) is an advantage. It can either be connected to a computer with the supplied cable or plugged in with a WLAN adapter that comes in a USB port of the computer. If no USB port is available, the barcode scanner can also connect to Android devices via an OTG adapter. It is also possible to use the device with Bluetooth, which enables the integrated inventory setting.

Afterwards, the barcode "Matching" or "Handhold Model" is scanned, only then the scans are displayed in a text program or Excel. This proved to be rather impractical in the test because the barcode or the operating instructions must be available to activate this.

Several functions are advantageous, such as the activation of a permanent laser to scan several products one after the other, various output options in computer programs and the setting of prefix and suffix. The settings remain saved even after the barcode scanner is switched off.


The scanner's light weight and wireless connection make it ideal for larger stores or inventory. However, missing information about the distance, memory capacity or battery life make working with this scanner a guessing game.

The most important commands can be read on a supplied card. Unfortunately, the operating instructions themselves are only available in English. Those who know it will be able to handle the understandable and good instructions.

We have evaluated about 10 reviews on the Internet. In summary, we can say that about 90 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are about 10 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 90% positive and 10% negative ratings
