@John Nilsson

I have a phone that has caller ID, as well as buttons that light up (with LEDs) when you pick up the receiver.

And it works without any battery. It does have a battery option, which is useful if you want it to make sure you don't lose the call list, even when you disconnect the phone. But it does not need batteries to function.
