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.
