This article is about the Power Cell Charger. You may be looking for the Battery Charger.
The Power Cell Charger is an Appliance that can be built using the Habitat Builder and placed in a Cyclops or Seabase. It is used to recharge Power Cells.

Two Fragments must be scanned to acquire the Power Cell Charger Blueprints. The fragments can be found in Wrecks in the Northwestern Mushroom Forest, Sea Treader's Path, and in the Jellyshroom Cave.

The Power Cell Charger has the appearance of two Power Cell shaped capsule sides. When interacted with, it flips open to reveal two slots in which to place Power Cells.


The Power Cell Charger acts similarly to the Battery Charger, but charges Power Cells and Ion Power Cells. It can hold (and charge) up to two Power Cells at a time. It features a display that shows the charge percentage of each Power Cell placed in it.

The Power Cell Charger uses Energy from the Cyclops or Seabase it is attached to recharge the Power Cells that are placed in it. It takes 6 minutes and 40 seconds to recharge a fully depleted Power Cell or Ion Power Cell (200 energy or 1000 energy respectively); this works out to 30 or 150 energy (or 15% power) per minute for a single Cell. If charging 2 cells at once, this power requirement doubles.

  • The Power Cell Charger used to be able to charge power cells quicker than they were drained in a Cyclops with the Engine Efficiency Module, however this has been patched.
  • The inside of the Power Cell Charger features the "Alterra" logo.
