The model number for the Wii Remote is RVL-003, and is located both under the batteries and beneath the Nunchuk port. The Wii Remote looks very similar to it's successor, the Wii Remote plus, except the original Wii Remote has no text underneath the Wii symbol on the controller. The Wii Remote Plus has curved text that reads, "Wii Motion Plus INSIDE".
