A battery is a source of power for small household items.

Usage

Batteries are used to power the flashlight, radio, ham radio, walkie talkie and lamp on pillar.

Batteries will begin to drain when the device they're powering is on, until it eventually dies, upon which it is 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.
