spare key battery out of charge

Hi all.

ive a 2011 plate 8th gen civic, my problem is my spare key has never been used (still in the black rubber wrapper) I tried to open the car with it today but it never worked (obviously a dead battery in the fob - or is it the actual spare key for my car) my question is how to recharge it? Open the car with my usual key and start it with the spare? Will it do anything if its not the correct key (dealer mistakenly giving the original owner a two different keys)

You can not charge the fob mate you have to change the battery it's a CR1616 battery, just don't buy a cheap one chances are it won't work still, buy a decent one I use energizer.
Can not see the dealer supplying two different fobs but check the blade profile.

Ah right cheers, I thought it might charge while you drove, like a ford. I'll check the blade profile also, I never thought of that. Cheers again
