Looking for recommendations for an inexpensive mobile (receipt like - 2-4in width) bluetooth printer.

Need to print receipts from a web page (stock android browser) to the printer - don't want to develop an app (install existing app/drivers is okay) to print from the stock browser.

Suggestions on how to best accomplish this?
