12V rechargable car battery, usable in cars. It can be used to power other appliances, if connected properly. — In-game description


The Car Battery is a crucial vehicle component in DayZ Standalone. Without a battery, you cannot start the engine.

Each engine start drains a portion of the battery (amount to be confirmed), it can only be recharged using a battery charger. Since 1.12 vehicle batteries are now recharging while the engine is running and consumed by the headlights.
