I believe it does, I will look at mine today and put up a pic and what type of battery it uses.

That is a good question, I do not recall.   I can look the next time I go to work, but I do not think it does.

There you go I stand corrected.   I guess I never had to change it.

Me neither, I just use the thing, had to actually go to the shop and look at mine to make sure!

The battery is probably used to drive the LED circuitry.

I suspect the same thing but in addition whatever circuit or chip is analyzing the inductive pickup results also. WAG!

Probably some kind of voltage divider circuit where the output trips the appropiate LED.

Something like that, I sort of snooped around inside and there is definitely more than one chip inside but on mine none of the chips have an industry number on them, only 'house marked' components. So, who knows what they do.
