The Truck Battery is a vehicle component in DayZ. It is required for the M3S to function.

When used in a vehicle each engine start drains the battery by 1% (15/1500), 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.

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