A car battery charger is an electrical item used in vehicle mechanics.


A car battery charger is used to recharge a car battery. To do so, the car battery must be removed from the vehicle and in the player's main inventory, then the player must ensure they're standing on a powered tile, upon right-clicking the car battery or car battery charger, the option "Charge car battery" will appear.

Note that the car battery's condition and remaining charge are different. The car battery charger will not improve the condition of a car battery.
