Hey everyone,

Many moons ago I worked in a place where we had a Brady LS2000 wire
labeler.  So long as the supplies were fresh it was great.

In the storage unit I have a Brady TLS2200.  Supplies are expensive,
but it works reasonably well.  Unfortunately the battery is shot
(gotta replace that).

It seems to me that as cheap as the Brother P-Touch type labelers have
gotten that there might be some product by (Brady|Dymo|Brother|etc)
that everyone uses and recommends these days which is (a) cheap enough
that they can be deployed en masse rather than treated as a scarce
resource, (b) hopefully runs on standard (such as AAA) battery types,
and (c) has reasonably priced supplies.

Labeling cables is mostly what I'm interested in.  The el-cheapo
p-touch seems adequate to putting hostnames on machines.



I'm still a big fan of the brady. The wrap-around self-laminating cable
labels are really hard to beat.

I don't even use the battery in mine... I just keep it plugged in to power.

A $15 universal power supply from your local Fry's will do the trick.

I don't know about the LS/TLS2200, mine is an IDEXPERT.
