Does this run on batteries or do you plug it in? And also, I know the title says it comes with a remote, but i couldn't find it in the description.

    You have to plug it in to an electrical outlet for it to work. It does have a battery backup, but all that means is that if the power goes out, it will remember your settings (date, time, etc). The remote runs on a small battery also.

  • You plug it in, but you can insert a backup battery so the device will keep working during/after a power failure. The remote is pictured in one of the images.

  • This does not run on batteries... you have to plug it in to AC power. And it definitely does include a full-function wireless remote control.

  • The battery backup only retains your radio presets. It does not retain the time or alarm settings. So even the slightest power glitch means that the alarm does not go off the next morning.

  • Yes & No - Unit requires AC and is not battery powered. It has a remote and uses a AAA battery as a backup to save any programmed settings which is not included with the radio.
