    This is a fast and easy to use wireless barcode scanner. It comes with an AC wall charger, an instruction manual that does not tell you much, a 2.4 GHz receiver and the scanner itself. The cable from the AC wall charger to the scanner is 47 inches long. There is also a Lithium battery in the box that you may have to install. The lithium battery has a capacity of 750 mAh and it can be charged in about 2.5 hours. It will scan for 30 hours before it needs to be recharged. The USB receiver was plug and play on my laptop that I used for the test and it operated on a transmission frequency of 2.4 GHz. The effective transmission distance between the scanner and the USB receiver is 30 to 50 meters or 100 to 165 feet. The scanner is very lightweight as it only weighs 5 .5 ounces. It is ideal for a small store, office, warehouse, business or for a home hobbyist. The unit is designed so you cannot lay it on the laser screen to get it scratched. The instruction manual is very uninformative but it does have a lot of barcodes that you can scan to change the unit's registration number, language, baud rate and many other features important features. In my case I took it out of the box and it worked perfectly with my laptop computer without any changes. I am an avid collector and there exists some good software out there that helps you gather detailed data for movie DVDs, books, music and comic books. You can use a laser scanner to read in the bar code and the software will add the item to your data base and do hours of data collection and posting in seconds to help you build your database of your collection. (Please see my video) It can save you days of work using this scanner and the software. Please note that the software comes from another company. I like this wireless scanner a lot. I now will purchase the software to collect the data for my book and movie collection. This scanner will save you hours of work and help to accurately document your inventory quickly and easily. I rate this scanner as a 5 star item and recommend it to you. I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation and I promised to provide a fair and honest review.

    I first got TaoTronics' wired scanner and was please with it. Finding the limitations of the wired unit inconvenient at times and wanting a backup in case of an unexpected failure, I searched for a wireless unit and found this one. Now my poor wired unit sits lonely on the edge
    I first got TaoTronics' wired scanner and was please with it. Finding the limitations of the wired unit inconvenient at times and wanting a backup in case of an unexpected failure, I searched for a wireless unit and found this one. Now my poor wired unit sits lonely on the edge of the desk waiting for attention- I used my wireless for everything now. The battery doesn't have any issues and it hasn't run out of juice on me and I only charge it maybe once a week. In short, I love it and glad I bought it. One downfall is the manual is a little short on instructions, it has all the barcodes to changes settings but you'd better be able to figure it out with only a short label below it.

    The device is a life saver when it comes to scanning inventory. Its 2.4G Wireless Bar Code Scanner which looks robust. The package includes wireless scanner, 3.7V 750mAH Li-ion battery, receiver and usb charger. The wireless charger can be charged by connecting it to a computer but I highly recommend charging with wall charger. The device will charge faster. Once fully charged the devices last more than 24 hours. The wireless scanner makes life easier because you can move the scanner around especially when you need to scan an item which is really heavy. This is a plug and play device. Once the receiver is plugged in, it automatically installs the required drivers. The range for the wireless scanner is more than 20 meter that gives you a lot of room to use the devices without worrying about the range. Having a wireless scanner is way better than a wired one because you are able to scan all around your facility rather than sitting at one place. This device is perfect for personal, small and large business use. I use the device to manage my inventory and scan my personal dvd collection. The scanner is good quality and robust and allow the user to scan the bar code at variety of angle. The scanner is set to default setting which means it would start working soon you start scanning bar codes. Some people might want to personalize some setting such as adding prefix or changing the power sleep time. The user manual allows changing all the settings for the scanner. All you have to do is scan the specific codes on the manual to which you want it to change. The manual allows you to change all the setting on the scanner and if you don't like it then you can reset to the default by scanning the default scanning bar code. Overall I highly recommend this product. The wireless bar code scanner has a huge range which allows using scanner all over your facility. The scanner can also be used for personal use to organize your collection such as DVD collection. The scanner can be used with MS Excel or with some third party scanning software. The user manual is user friendly and allows you to configure setting on the scanner.

    LOVE this scanner. I have a pack and ship store. We had been manual entering the UPS, FED ex and USPS numbers. This thing is one of the BEST things I have ever bought. It has a long reach. Sometimes customers leave packages in the back room because they are heavy. We can walk
    LOVE this scanner. I have a pack and ship store. We had been manual entering the UPS, FED ex and USPS numbers. This thing is one of the BEST things I have ever bought. It has a long reach. Sometimes customers leave packages in the back room because they are heavy. We can walk about 30 feet from our computer and still scan in our items no problem. Great product. No installation. Just plug and play. VERY happy. I've only had it for about 3 weeks so I don't know how long it will lats. But for the price even if it doesn't last for ever Its GREAT!

    Light weight and easy to use, either connected or separately (uploads through a wireless USB connection either way). What I especially appreciated was that when the scanner turned out to be defective, the company responded quickly, asking for data (reasonable request) and then
    Light weight and easy to use, either connected or separately (uploads through a wireless USB connection either way). What I especially appreciated was that when the scanner turned out to be defective, the company responded quickly, asking for data (reasonable request) and then when it judged it defective, replied that it was sending a replacement. I now have the replacement and it has been but a few days total. Exceptional service.

Where can I get basic software/hardware to use with this scanner? (bar code creation / printing, inventory management to use data collected) Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: You can Google and find some software options - lots of different features in inventory software so you'll need to decide what meets your situation. If you already have Quickbooks or similar POS/accounting software then inventory management may just be an add-on module. Also, you may get a cheap software separate from inventory management that handles the bar code creation part. My basic solution is simply scanning serial numbers into a spreadsheet - basically free for my need.

how does the unit deal with less than perfect bar codes. our upc printers have fairly poor quality print and the last unit I purchased did not work Customers are chatting about this View conversation
A: Unfortunatly as in all data input Garbage in and garbage out. If the reader can't scan accurately your results will be faulty. We used this product as an initial purchase to get the ball rolling but have moved on to a different solution using a proprietary vendors software and scanners. the best Bar Code printers we have ever used are the ones made by Zebra and Seagull Barcode fonts. Hope that helps
