What is a USB barcode scanner?

Definition

The USB barcode scanner is a device that has been developed to read out the information stored in a barcode. It is used as an alternative to a standard barcode reader. This way, it provides the user with more flexibility since they can use it with any operating system and at any given time. A USB barcode scanner will be able to store data about the product or package that you are scanning, including its price and any other relevant information such as nutrition facts or where you purchased it from. The reason this device is ideal for storing this type of data is because unlike on a typical computer, the information will not be lost when the battery dies or if there's some other hardware failure.
