I own a Brother PT D210 and you can adjust label length by toggling with 'Margin' function.

I bought label cassettes from Amazon [2pk $13], laminated ones hold up very well, use it for all the kids stuff for school.

Used Mabel's labels a couple times and this was the better option in the long run

Not sure about the 110 but higher models have a “chain” setting that doesn’t waste any except on the first label, very nice to have.

Also you can buy aftermarket labels on Amazon, don’t know how good but at 1/5 the price you can go crazy.

110 also has the chain printing feature.

Thousands of different label tapes on amazon. Which laminated one is the good buy? Kids would love the colorful labels.

Sorry, there are a lot of comments to filter through, is the H110 the best bang for your buck? Does it go through batteries quickly? Any better options?

The other option I figured out is just making a giant list of what I want, typing out as many characters as possible, with spaces to cut the label by scissors. Returned it regardless as a friend offered to let me use theirs.

Someone said all of them do this. Might just have to back to the old school dial ones that punch the ribbon or computer printer stickers.

There is another person on here who talked about chain printing.
I mentioned the chain print a few posts back. It is really the only option for truly saving that first bit it wastes. Even adjusting margins has a very minor effect.

Reason they have not changed the design is that they have a whole lot of investment into the cartridge/mechanism design. Right now pretty much ALL their printers use either the M series (non-lamintated) or TZ series (laminated) tapes. If they change the mechanism, that means that they would need to introduce a different type of cartridge (no choice due to cartridge design also). Which also means compatible cartridges would take forever to be available, so sales would be super slow initially.

I use chain print as often as I can. But otherwise, I've learned to live with the waste. We are unfortunately in a disposable world. At least now there are many compatible labels that are cheap. Once upon a time when each tape was $25 or so (since only originals were available) it hurt to see all that waste.

Any bluetooth models available?

Brother PT-P700 is a solid deal at costco.ca pretty much half the price of anywhere else but the uses are limited when it cannot be connected to a phone with mobile app

PTP710BT is better but a bit expensive at $100 on sale. Can connect to phone and prints nice and wide

in the "Customer questions & answers" section, it says:
Center pin positive, outside ring negative

H110 need center negative, right?

The one you mentioned should work, but it is on amazon.com, NOT amazon.ca
Although I tried to cancel my order, it was shipped out.
I confirm that this power adapter (mentioned by soupmaster666) does NOT work for H110.
