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

When used in a vehicle each engine start drains the battery by 3% (15/500), this can be recharged while the vehicle is running or by using a Battery Charger.

Attaching Metal Wire will allow the battery to be be used to power base building elements directly such as the Construction Lights and the Xmas Lights, though its recommended to use a Truck Battery instead due to it holding 3x the amount of power.

If a Car Battery is attached to a Vehicle, it's possible to use the Screwdriver to secure it in place.

The Car Battery is also the only battery that can be attached to the Field Transceiver.
