    Does the Apple Remote have a battery in it?

    If so, how does it charge?

    If not, how does it function?

    I just can't figure this out.

    There's a tiny little hamster in there on a tiny little wheel.

    DO NOT GET THE REMOTE WET - HE MAY DROWN

    The battery powers a little light so the hamster can see what he's doing.

    I use mine occasionally, usually to control iTunes from the other side of the room.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.

    i think the remote would be functional for more people if you could customize its settins. if you could set it ta only control one app. even if it wasnt the one on top would be a big one for me. i do use mine for video though
