Is this mp10 wireless?

So I am buying a mp10es but the seller doesn't know if it's wireless or not is there a way I can look at the equipment it came with to see if it is wireless or not? Maybe like a symbol on the pump or controller. He says there's a w on the controler but all the pictures I see online have a w on the controler.

Correct - the wireless "w" actually lights up. The non-wireless won't have it.

Make sure the W lights up. I have an MP10 ES and it has a W on it... but it doesn't light up. I'm pretty sure they all have the W

The wireless feature only means that it will wirelessly connect with additional Vortech powerheads or the radion LED. There is still a power wire used to drive the motor. I don't know of ANY powerhead that had no power wire.
