The rechargeable battery should look like this one.

Looking up the paring of the other remote now.

Expert:  Charles replied 9 months ago.

The i-Pilot remote is prelearned to the controller from the factory. The top of
the controller has a single learn button to allow additional remotes to be added
to the system. To learn additional remotes:
1. Power up the trolling motor.
2. Push and hold the learn button down. a steady audio tone will be heard
while holding this button.
3. While holding the learn button down push any button on the remote
being programmed. Three beeps will be heard when the remote is
successfully learned.
a remote can only be learned to one controller at a time. a controller can have
an unlimited number of remotes learned to it. during the learn process, the
remote must start out in the off condition. If necessary, the remote can be
turned off by pressing and holding the Pause button for three seconds.

That is from page 33 of the manual.
