~ 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 be recharged using a battery charger.

Since 1.12, the Car Battery will now also recharge while the engine is running. Additionally, a car battery is required to power the field transceiver. While attached to a vehicle, the Car Battery will be drained if the lights are left on.
