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.

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.
