The best portable online cash registers (with battery)
In the first selection, we will look at the best examples of offline online checkouts. This refers to compact cash registers equipped with a rechargeable battery and capable of operating in portable mode. These are optimal solutions for individual entrepreneurs working in a dynamic mode, as well as for any other commercial organizations in which the mobility of cash registers is important. Alternatively, an offline online cash register can also be used as a stationary one in places where power or internet interruptions often occur.
First, we will consider the most inexpensive mobile version of the online checkout of the Mercury trademark. The 115F model is one of the most popular in the line, along with 180F and 185F, which we will also say a few words later.
The functionality of the Mercury 115F makes this device almost universal – any cash transactions, control and accounting, keeping a journal in electronic form. The main application is obvious – printing checks, accounting documents, tickets. And it is the last function that serves as a factor in high demand for equipping public transport. Mercury 115F is often installed in buses for toll collection. Ticket printing is carried out at the touch of a button.
The technical characteristics of Mercury 115F are as follows. The case with dimensions 230x116x65mm is made of sturdy plastic, and in combination with a low weight of 1.2kg, this gives resistance to drops and shock loads, which is especially important for mobile operating conditions. Mechanical buttons, compact LCD screen with blue backlight. Battery capacity – 2000mAh, which is guaranteed to provide autonomous operation without recharging for at least a day, up to 72 hours.
In terms of printing receipts, a full charge is enough for 500 receipts. The width of the receipt tape is 57.5mm. Print speed – 7 lines per second (35mm per second). Silent thermal printing. EasyLoad quick belt replacement. Auto cut is not provided.
The online cash register of this model is connected to the computer via the miniUSB interface. Configuration and all maintenance is performed using proprietary software. The work with the goods database is carried out in the same way. This model uses microSD memory cards up to 32GB as data storage. For data transfer, a Wi-Fi module and a SIM card slot for a mobile operator with support for 2G and 3G technologies are provided here.
Mercury 115F has built-in hardware and software for connecting a barcode scanner. A wide range of operating temperatures allows this model to be used without problems at temperatures up to 20 degrees below zero, which makes the model the most applicable for the field trade.
Mercury 115F can be purchased from the manufacturer or official distributors in different configurations: with a fiscal drive for different periods or without a fiscal drive.
In the assortment of the Mercury trademark there are neighboring models of online checkouts that are equally popular – 180F and 185F. The first one is one of the smallest in this segment with a huge resource of receipt printing – up to 3000 per day. The second one is almost identical to the monitored 115F, only slightly lighter, the connection connector is a full-size USB Type A and an RS-232 interface is provided for connecting the scales.

- convenient control;
- data transfer via Wi-Fi or mobile network;

As the second issue, consider a slightly more expensive and more functional online cash register KASSATKA 7, which in terms of operation differs from the previous input method – it uses not a mechanical keyboard, but a touch screen.
KASSATKA 7 is a mobile online cash register focused mainly on small businesses with micro-retail: coffee shops, beauty salons, small repair shops, stalls, any other retail outlets with a small customer flow. The ability to work at subzero temperatures allows you to use the checkout counter for street fast food and off-site sales in almost any season. Fully complies with 54-ФЗ and can be connected to any OFD (fiscal data operator).
Let's go through the key technical characteristics of this model. The dimensions of the plastic case are determined by the 7-inch color LCD touchscreen, which occupies almost the entire area of the front panel. Resolution – 1024 × 600 pixels. The electronics are controlled by a 4-core processor. The volume of built-in RAM – 1GB, built-in – 8GB, external microSD memory cards up to 32GB are supported. The cash register software runs on an operating system Android of version 6 or higher.
Three connection options can be used for data transmission: WI-FI, mobile Internet or wired Ethernet. Wireless connection to computer – Bluetooth, wired – USB Host 2 ports. The built-in lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 2500mAh is designed for active use up to 8 hours. Optionally, two times more capacious battery can be installed. The cash register can work during charging without pauses.
Built-in thermal printer prints receipts on 58mm paper. Bobbin diameter – up to 50mm. Print speed – up to 18 lines per second.
In the online checkout KASSATKA 7 there is another important innovation that significantly expands the capabilities of the device. We are talking about the function of a personal account, with which you can carry out many actions remotely: manage the range of goods, edit the loyalty program, exchange data with other accounting platforms, to some extent control the work of employees and much more.
With general favorable impressions from KASSATKA 7, experts warn against one nuisance. The built-in NFC module is declared to be fully functional, but in fact, it is not quite working in this version. The manufacturer may have fixed the problem at the time of this publication. But if not, then you can look for a good alternative – the online cashier KASSATKA Mini 7, in which acquiring has already been fully implemented.
- touch screen;
- speed of work;
- the most simple control;
- a wide range of communication options;
- convenient personal account;
- ready to work in EGAIS;
- 'trendy' design.
- NFC module may not work;
- does not support pre-orders and pending check;
- only one taxation system.
Now let's consider a bright new product of 2019 – a progressive and functional online cashier Evotor 5i. The terminal is focused on delivery enterprises, mobile and market trade, courier services, small outlets, fast food kiosks. There is a full-fledged acquiring. For the price, this model is much more expensive than the previous version.
The weight of the device is minimal – only 393g, and the dimensions are also practically pocketable – 208.4x86x50mm. Controlled via a 5.5-inch touchscreen with a 1280 × 720 resolution and a fairly high pixel density of 267 per inch. Connection and data transfer options: Wi-Fi, 2G / 3G mobile communication, module Bluetooth 4.0. Built-in two cameras and a satellite positioning module with GPS and GLONASS support. A USB port is provided for connecting peripherals – it is the only, but for that, a compact device format, and if desired, the port can be easily scaled using a hub.
The working functionality of the Evotor 5i is quite wide from the very beginning, but it can be easily supplemented and expanded by simply installing the necessary applications exactly as it is done in any smartphone. The pre-installed software is free, includes all the necessary basic operations: everything related to the sale and return of goods, including discounts; accounting (acceptance, write-off, inventory, etc.). Additional paid software significantly expands the capabilities of the online checkout: work with EGAIS, interaction with 1C, online store, etc.
Like the previous model, this cash register has the function of a personal account with the same capabilities for remote management, control and accounting. And here acquiring is already fully implemented – accepting any cards, paying via QR codes, well-known payment services (Google Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, WeChat Pay, Alipay). You can connect and set up acquiring in the same personal account. The convenient function of the photo scanner is worth a separate mention. Evotor 5i does not need a separate barcode scanner to quickly add items. To do this, you can use the built-in cameras, and the device will independently find all the information about the product in the cloud.
The autonomy in terms of power supply of this model is really at its best – the delivery set includes as many as two standard lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 2400 mAh each. The total capacity of the two batteries is enough for 12 hours of operation. If the online cash register is 'loaded' solely with the printing of checks, then the time of continuous operation will be 8 hours.
- touch screen;
- speed of work;
- ease of management;
- remote control;
- photo scanner;
- simple product addition by barcode;
- ready for EGAIS;
- full-fledged acquiring.
- there is no microUSB for recharging from a powerbank (user wish).
Now let's go back to the button-type form factor and the lower price category – let's look at the online cash register of a new type (nudger) ATOL 91F. Let's clarify right away that the assortment of the manufacturer of the same name has a slightly improved version – ATOL 92F. But there is no fundamental and really significant difference between these versions, while 92F is much larger and heavier. We, giving preference to the compact format, will focus on 91F.
Externally, the device looks 'rustic' due to the mechanical keyboard with angular buttons. In fact, this format has a large audience that does not recognize or cannot adapt to CCP with touch control. In the end, the buttons are rubberized, with a nice touch, and in general, the exterior looks even more deceiving if you take a closer look at the functionality.
The body of the online cash register with dimensions 187x85x66mm is made of strong black or red plastic. The device weighs 390g, the LCD screen is monochrome 2.7 inches by 6 lines with adjustable backlight. The main interfaces are located on the left side of the device: a slot for a SIM card of a mobile operator (only 2G is supported), a socket for an RJ-45 LAN cable, a Micro-USB socket for power supply and battery charging. Wireless interfaces: Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules.
The thermal printer of this model has a resource of about 50 km of receipt tape. Standard roll diameter – 43mm (winding length – 30 meters), check width – 58mm. Manual cut – comb. The printing speed is quite modest – 50mm per second, which in fact makes it possible to actually print a hundred or two checks a day, no more. Printing of QR codes is supported. Replacing the receipt tape is extremely simple and quick.
The device works from a battery pack that provides autonomy up to 8 hours. Operation while charging is supported. The battery is located under one back cover along with a fiscal accumulator, which is also easy to replace and does not require special qualifications from the operator.
The online cash register Atol 91F has a 'continuation' – a personal account, like the above solutions. It significantly expands the capabilities of the device and compensates for the shortcomings of direct functionality – editing the product database, reports, analytics, etc. The ticket office itself has a built-in ticket mode specifically for passenger transportation.
- small size and weight;
- extreme simplicity of development and operation;
- ticket mode;
- Personal Area;
- different options for data transfer;
- support for recharging during operation;
- affordable price.
- works unstable at low temperatures, although such a possibility is stated.

And the selection of the best portable online cash registers with a battery will be completed by another, more advanced model produced by the famous Russian company LiteBox. The number 7 in the name does not mean the order of the model's release and not the generation, but the diagonal of the tablet screen on the basis of which the terminal is built (in the above version, the same approach to the nomenclature). Like the previous model, the 'seven' comes in modifications with and without acquiring.
LiteBox 7 is a compact mobile cash register with case dimensions 260x120x80mm and weight 0.77kg. These parameters, combined with functionality, makes the checkout an effective tool for equipping retail outlets, service enterprises, delivery services, and any form of mobile commerce.

The best stationary online cash registers
The second selection of the best online checkouts according to the version was formed by our experts already on the basis of a stationary installation with constant power from the network. This solution has its advantages if the entrepreneurial activity does not definitely imply offsite trade.
Let's start with the most budget option – online cash register in the form factor of a pure fiscal registrar ATOL 20F. The model is a 'back modified' version of the popular low-cost ATOL 22F model. Namely, 20F was specially simplified as much as possible and everything unnecessary was removed in order to minimize the cost. Today ATOL 20F is the cheapest online POS terminal in this segment.
Let's clarify right away – the ATOL 20F online cash register performs the key function of accounting for trade operations – a fiscal registrar and a check issuing terminal. There is no keyboard or display, and all control is carried out via a PC or other compatible device.
The dimensions of the device body are 131x135x195mm, the cash register weight is 1.2 kg. The built-in thermal printer can print on receipt paper of different widths – from 58 to 80mm. Print speed – up to 100 mm per second. Printer resource – 100 – 150 km of receipt tape. The printer is equipped with an auto cutter. Replacing consumables is extremely simple and quick.
The ATOL 20F cashier is equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless communication modules, a cellular radio module, a USB interface and an RJ-12 jack for direct connection of a cash drawer. The models are suitable for any fiscal accumulators for a period of 13 – 15 to 36 months.
Hereinafter, the stationary format with mains power does not imply mandatory data loss in the event of unforeseen power outages. ATOL 20F is equipped with a non-volatile memory, which always stores information about operations and receipt printing. Some stationary models are equipped with a small capacity battery pack to enable cashiers at least to serve the remaining queue.
This model is suitable for enterprises using a variety of tax systems: UTII, OSNO, PSN, STS. Its functionality in combination with proprietary software and additional equipment is sufficient for both individual entrepreneurs and large trade enterprises.
- minimum dimensions and weight;
- reliable and trouble-free operation;
- printing on tape of any size;
- wired and wireless data transmission;
- print speed;
- auto cut;
- the most affordable price.
- no fundamental shortcomings were found.
ATOL 150ph (Sigma 10)
Another ATOL product is a stationary online cash register model 150f, which is often listed in catalogs of online stores as Sigma 10. These designations are equivalent, but the model is included in the official register exactly as 150f. And this box office is already strikingly different from the previous one, which is immediately noticeable at the first glance.
This model is already a full-fledged smart terminal with a large touch screen, from which control is carried out. The screen is built-in, but at the same time it is separated into a separate sub-module, which adds futurism and convenience for the cashier to the design of the device due to the ability to adjust the angle of inclination.
Checkout dimensions – 239x151x104mm, weight 2.1kg. The diagonal screen size is 10 inches. A high-quality IPS-matrix provides viewing angles of 178 degrees, which can be important for super-fast customer service, for example, in catering establishments.
A built-in Japanese-made thermal printer feeds printed receipts to the right side of the cash register. Print speed – up to 100 mm per second. The compatible receipt tape is 57mm wide and 32m long. Printer resource – 50 km of receipt tape. Cutter resource – 500 thousand cuts.
The ATOL 150f checkout is equipped with a very wide range of interfaces: three communication modules for data transmission – wired Ethernet and wireless Wi-Fi and 3G. Peripherals can be connected via USB-A (four ports), certain types of devices via Bluetooth, cash drawer via a separate RJ-11 interface.
The main part of the functionality of ATOL 150f (Sigma 10) is concentrated in the pre-installed proprietary software. In addition to the direct function of accounting for sold goods, in the cash register application you can also track all movements of goods, see the details of sales, the balance, and make a comparative analysis. The checkout supports the setting of different discounts for different groups of goods, taking into account the time of day and even the 'promotional' location of the goods in the trading floor.
For the management of the enterprise, such a function of proprietary software as automatic analysis of the productivity of cashiers, tracking sales activity for specific time intervals will be interesting. The system allows you to export databases to the popular csv format.
This model receives generally positive feedback from users, with the exception of a few comments regarding the software. The proprietary software at the time of the release of this model and for some time afterwards clearly required some work and improvement. The developers promise to thoroughly test the software and release the appropriate updates.
- large touch screen with IPS-matrix and tilt angle adjustment;
- speed and stability of work in general;
- print speed;
- auto cutter;
- direct connection of the cash drawer;
- integration with 1C;
- backup battery for correct shutdown;
- one of the best solutions for public catering and especially fast food;
- hi-tech design.
- complaints about software 'dampness' (probably fixed).
Now let us turn your attention to another interesting solution that fully meets the modern requirements for accounting for trade operations. This is a product of Dreamkas company – an online cash register with the 'original' name 'Cashier F'. This obvious and deliberate negligence in terms of naming creates a little confusion, since under the names 'Kassa F' and 'Dreamkas F', you can often find an old version of the terminal on trading floors. Here we are talking about an updated version with a larger screen and a much more presentable design (unlike the previous generation).
Although this cash desk is stationary, it is still compact – 279x156x99mm and not too heavy – 700g. Equipped with a mechanical, but comfortable and outwardly attractive keyboard – rubberized buttons, pleasant to the touch, well-made, pleasant shades. This is a big step forward compared to the previous generation of Kassa F, which was distinguished by good quality and wide functionality, but design and ergonomics that did not stand up to criticism at all. Also, the new Kassa F received an enlarged color LCD screen in all directions.
This model has a wide enough functionality for use in large and small trade enterprises, services, online stores.
A separate quality that deserves a special mention is the maximum ease of learning and use. Everything here is done in order to learn how to work with the cash register could be a person with any level of training in the minimum time. Even the software interface is organized in such a way as to 'guide' the cashier in the right directions on the choice of operations and not to allow mistakes at any stage. There is a very informative hint system.
Kassa F can closely interact with 1C software products and harmoniously integrate into the company's accounting system. It provides the ability to flexibly make changes to the structure in the event of changes in legislation.
A separate useful function – the Cabinet – is taken out of the box office as an online service. So, using a simple smartphone, you can remotely monitor the average check, current earnings, the effectiveness of ongoing promotions, all this in real time.
- extreme simplicity of development and use;
- maximum prevention of operator errors;
- informative hint system;
- wide functionality;
- readiness for changes in legislation;
- integration with 1C;
- elegant appearance.
- no systematic complaints or obvious disadvantages were found.
Now let's turn back to the LiteBox assortment and look at a powerful, productive, functional and at the same time unusually effective outwardly device – the online cash register LiteBox X. In terms of design, this is undoubtedly a 'user sympathy prize', but the device's capabilities are also worthy of respect.
The checkout is a terminal in a high-quality plastic casing in a candy bar form factor with a spectacular futuristic design. The built-in touchscreen LCD is 8 inches diagonal and has a resolution of 1280×800.
The 'flagship' qualities of LiteBox X are manifested not only in the design, but also in the set of interfaces, and it is capable of surprising. The wireless part is quite standard: Bluethooth for peripherals; Wi-Fi and cellular radio with 2G and 3G support for data transmission. The wired part is surprisingly varied: two USB Type A ports, two micro-USB, two RJ45 network ports, and even HDMI.
The electronics are based on a relatively powerful 4-core processor with a frequency of 1.2 GHz. RAM is not too much, but enough, as for this class of devices – 1GB. Built-in memory – 8GB. The thermal printer prints on a wide 80cm receipt tape at a speed of 18 lines per second.
The checkout also has two cameras capable of reading barcodes: the main one at 5MP, the front one at 2MP; both with image capture function. There is an autocrop.
As of April 2020, this particular model is not on the manufacturer's website, but there is still enough of it on sale. Perhaps in the future LiteBox will continue to develop the direction of just such a format.
The terminal battery pack allows using the cashier in active mode up to 12 hours, depending on the types of operations. In standby mode, the device can work up to 5 days.
The checkout allows you to accept cash and non-cash payments. The acquiring unit accepts magnetic, chip (smart) cards and contactless (PayPass) cards.
- ease of use;
- stability and reliability;
- large sensitive screen;
- wide check tape;
- auto cropping;
- many interfaces;
- two cameras reading bar codes;
- best design according to numerous reviews.
- no fundamental shortcomings were found.
And the review of the best online checkouts according to the magazine will be completed by the most productive, functional and expensive model in both collections. This is a product of the above-mentioned Dreamkas company, known for its strange naming. Fortunately, in the case of Viki Classic, the name at least indicates a specific model without any ambiguities.
Viki Classic is a whole set of devices, since the cash register consists of two blocks: a monitor with all the 'computer' electronics and a separate fiscal recorder with a drive and a thermal printer. At the same time, the complete set is flexible – the fiscal recorder is offered in three options to choose from from the simplest to the most functional and expensive.
This is a cash register with a characteristic package. In addition to the most important thing – a candy bar and a fiscal registrar – the manufacturer also equips the cash desk with a cash drawer, a buyer's display for 2 lines of 20 characters each, and a barcode scanner. The touch screen monoblock is the largest for this kind of device – as much as 15 inches.
The impressive dimensions of the screen make this particular model the most suitable for equipping the checkouts of catering establishments, especially fast food: 100 quick-access tiles are placed on the screen (baked goods, bulk goods, ready meals, etc.), and the speed of the set allows you to serve the customer flow as quickly as possible.
The proprietary software harmoniously integrates Viki Classic into the ecosystem of other Dreamcas products with full compatibility with all Fiscal Data Operators.
For this kit, the most suitable models of checkout scales are recommended: CAS AD via COM port, CAS ER via COM port and Bar Slim via USB.
Finally, a few words about the printing unit. The checkout is fully adapted to work with any device of the Viki Print family, which includes three printers of receipts for UTII and three full-fledged fiscal registers with built-in printers. Viki Print 57 Plus and 80 Plus models are equipped with automatic receipt cutters. The numbers in the model names indicate the width of the used receipt tape. All Viki Print devices can print graphic objects – logos and QR codes on receipts.
- wide functionality;
- ease of use;
- largest touch screen;
- three options of fiscal registrars to choose from;
- full compatibility with all OFDs;
- cash drawer included;
- spectacular appearance.
- high price.
