Battery 120px.png

Weight: 0.6

Batteries are a source of power for small household items. They are used to power the flashlight, radios, HAM radio, walkie talkies and lamp on pillar. When the device it is powering is turned on, the battery will begin to drain, until it eventually dies, upon which it will be destroyed/consumed. When used to power a flashlight, the player can tell when the battery is getting low, as the light will begin to flicker rapidly.

Batteries can be found in various places throughout the world, such as in garbage cans, wooden crates, counters and many other places. They can also be found inside radios and flashlights, so long as they haven't been left on.
