Socket Mobile 8Ci Scanner

The Socket Mobile 8Ci Bluetooth Hand Scanner is a small, thin and easy to use barcode scanner optimized for smartphones. Featuring full software support, the Socket Mobile 8Ci Bluetooth Hand Scanner is easy to attach to your smartphone when in use and easy to detach and slip in your pocket when not in use.

Unlike other barcode scanners for smartphones, the Socket Mobile 8Ci Bluetooth Hand Scanner can be used with different devices of varying shapes and sizes (even tablets!) and can be used either attached or detached from the host device. Weighing only 1.7 oz (48 g), it’s the lightest barcode scanner on the market that can be attached to a smartphone in a sled-type scanning solution.

It reads all of the most popular 1D barcodes and is perfect for retail point of sale, inventory management, sales order entry, field service, and other mobile business applications.

  • One handed solution – Ideal for workers who need to keep a hand free to handle merchandise or equiment
  • Thin, small and elegant – As small as a credit card, the CHS Series 8 is thinner than most smartphones and slips easily into a shirt or pants pocket
  • Easy to integrate – The CHS Series 8 is compatible with any applications used with our highly popular CHS Series 7 barcode scanners
