The Zebra LI4278 is a cordless barcode scanner built for all day an everyday use. This device allows workers to scan faster and farther as they can capture virtually any 1D barcode – including the typical barcodes that are printed on paper labels; electronic barcodes displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, tablet or computer; and the high density (HD) barcodes commonly used in electronic component manufacturing.

The LI4278 offers cordless freedom with Bluetooth compatibility. It also offers better encryption for improved security and better overall wireless performance.

Thanks to its superior battery power management the Motorola LI4278 delivers the largest number of scans per battery charge to support scan intensive applications.


The Motorola LI4278 can be used in dusty and wet environments. The scan line is easy to see outdoors in bright sunlight as well as indoors in dim lighting. This device can survive 1.8m drops to concrete. And both cradles can handle over a quarter million insertions.

With this device 100 percent UPC barcodes can be captured from near contact to over 30 in./76.2 cm away, while 200% UPC codes can be scanned at 55 in./139.7 cm away.

With the LI4278 workers can spend less time manoeuvring the scanner and more time on task since barcodes can be captured at extreme angles. And an optional cradle that enables presentation mode gives your workers the flexibility to use the scanner in handheld and hands-free modes.
