    Padded Container for Epson Scanner

    I just recently purchased an Epson Perfection V39 highly portable flatbed scanner.

    This is the most portable scanner I've ever owned. According to Epson, the scanner's physical dimensions (not including removable USB cable) are: 9.9 inches x 14.4 inches x 1.5 inches (about 25.15cm x 36.58cm x 3.81 cm). The device weighs 3.4 pounds (1.54 kg).

    Is there something like a Cache or Brain Cell that can be used to protect this device while it is being transported from one location to another? This Epson is much slimmer and lighter than my much older scanner (that does not work with newer computers). I want the new V39 to be protected if I decide to lug it in a backpack or briefcase from one worksite to another.

    Any suggestions, Tom Bihn or otherwise?

    Padded Container for Epson Scanner

    It should fit in a case designed for some 15 inch laptops. If you want extra protection, beyond a simple cache and can't get a Brain Cell, look at Brenthaven. You may have to search out older models when laptops were a little thinker.

    Hi MtnMan,

    If you know the size of your scanner then you can use this lin:k https://www.tombihn.com/pages/dimens...pecs#fit-guide to compare the sizes of Brain Cells/Caches and see if one will fit.

    My Thinkpad 15.6" fits well in a Size 1 Brain Cell and it is similar size to your scanner - 14.7 x 10.4 x 1.4 inches. It is also more than 5lbs.

    Hope this helps.
