~ In-game description

The Battery Charger is a vehicle repair component in DayZ Standalone.


As of patch 1.11, with the implementation of battery draining, the charger is now necessary to recharge batteries.

Two batteries can be attached for loading. The first slot is for a car battery and the second for a truck battery. (Note: Only one slot can be used at a time as of update 1.11).


How to charge a battery:

  1. Plug the charger into a generator and place it on the ground.
  2. Attach the battery to the charger.
  3. Turn on the generator.
  4. Turn on the charger.

It takes approximately 9 minutes to fully load a car battery. The time for a truck battery is still to be determined.
