Batteries are electronic items crafted using a Fabricator.

Batteries are used to craft electronic tools and pieces of equipment, providing them with Energy. Batteries can hold up to 100 Energy, which is drained when using Battery-powered tools. Batteries can be swapped out or removed from tools by equipping the tool and pressing R (XBox One:XBOX X, PlayStation 4:Combops4sq). Ryley is forced to remain stationary during the interval.

The Battery can be charged in the Battery Charger, or an equipped tool can be recharged with Swim Charge Fins. These allow the player to recharge their tools without having to continuously craft new Batteries.


Spoiler alert: The following section contains story related material.


The Ion Battery is a modified, higher capacity version of the Battery, which can hold up to 500 Energy.

Trivia

  • Depleted batteries can be used in crafting to create tools that have a fully charged battery. This is an oversight by the developers.
