Passive. The difference between passive and active is that active pickups require a 9-volt battery to power them (EMG's, Seymour-Duncan Blackouts). Passive pickups don't need a battery.

They normally live in the back cavity. Change them just as you would on a stompbox or something.

...you own one. A pedal. It's held in by a battery clip in the cavity for the controls. Some guitars have battery compartments (wastes of wood *cough*) for them as well.
