? Pentax MX Winders

Is there more than one Pentax MX Winder? More than one Pentax, or aftermarket, winder compatible with Pentax MX bodies?

Right now on eBay there is a MX camera kit for sale which includes an "ASAHI Pentax MX winder" that looks different from the MX Winders I am used to seeing (the ones with normally broken battery compartment doors).

The MX Winder in this particullar ad has what looks like a Ni-Cd battery pack.

So, is there more than one Winder compatible with Pentax MX bodies?

I think I found the answer.
For the Pentax MX, there is a 'Winder'(2fps) and a "Motor Drive'(5fps) avalible.
The one in the eBay ad I mention above is a MX Motor Drive.

Next question:
Is the MX Motor Drive more reliable, has higher quality construction, than the MX Winder?

I've never seen the MX motordrive listed before and phrases about hen's teeth come to mind. I would guess it is better built, but it is only a guess. It can take NiCAD battery packs etc. I believe.
