The Harmony 1000 does not look like the standard remote control we have all seen over the years. This one is more of like a thin tablet style with a crisp touch sensitive screen for controlling the devices. There are only a few actual buttons for the volume, channels, and menu scrolling. Everything else is controlled by touching the display. When not in use it sits on the dock to keep the Harmony 1000 fully charged for hours of use.
The Harmony 1000 comes with a powered dock to keep your battery charged at all times. The dock has a power plug that connects to the back and then into a wall's power outlet. There are two contacts at the bottom of the Harmony 1000 that match up to the contacts on the dock that charges the unit. The dock is also good for keeping your Harmony 1000 in a place where you know you can find it.
The Harmony 1000 also has a mini USB port on the left side of the unit for connecting to your computer to update the device, and to download new commands to control your audio, visual, and home components.
The rechargeable battery that comes included with the Harmony 1000 is a 1250mah 3.7v Lithium-Ion battery that looks like what a cellphone would use. The battery tucks away into the device and it easily removed if it needs to be replaced.
