i just got my unit today.
according to the company i bought it from, it is the btq-818x,
though the manual i got off of the manufacturer's website differs from 
the manual on the cd that was sent to me on the cd in my box.

> But i have learnt that this hz can be set using the switch button of the device. As most users notice, the switch has 2 stages. He told me that when i want to switch the device on, if i leave it on the first stage, the device works in 1hz and and if i take it to the second stage, it works on 5hz. He says the difference between 2 is in 1hz the device receives the signal in 1 sec, 0.2 sec in 5hz. He says the device consumes battery more when it is set to 5hz.
