The Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad is a USB keyboard. It has no batteries, and gets all of its power from the USB cord that you plug into your Mac. It must be plugged in to a USB port to function.
On the plus side, the keyboard has enough power left over to run two small USB ports of its own on the left and right sides of the keyboard. The keyboard's USB ports aren't powerful enough to charge an iPad or run an external hard drive, but they can power memory sticks, mice, and other small USB items.
