Raft – Can You Recharge Batteries?

One of the most crucial elements in the Raft game is batteries, as they have durability points and will deplete over time. Players often wonder if there is a way to recharge them.

In the initial chapter, which covers the first three story islands, there is no method to recharge batteries. However, as players progress to the later chapters, they gain access to two ways of recharging batteries in Raft.

Can You Recharge Batteries in Raft?

Before reaching the third chapter, the only way to recharge batteries in Raft is by using a Battery Charger.

The Battery Charger has 2 recharge slots and requires Biofuel to operate. Each unit of Biofuel can fully recharge up to 4 batteries, taking around 185 seconds for each one.

However, using Biofuel solely for recharging at this point in the game can be costly, especially if you only have one Beehive on the raft. It is still a way to ensure all machines are operational, though.

If you want to be more efficient, try advancing further into the story to reach Varuna Point. Below this sunken island, a blueprint for the Wind Turbine can be found.

This structure is a game-changer as it allows you to recharge batteries at no cost, and the recharging time is faster than that of the Battery Charger.

Remember to place the Wind Turbine at least 3 walls high on your raft to maximize its recharging speed.

Under optimal conditions, the machine takes around 140 seconds to fully recharge a normal Battery and 525 seconds to recharge an Advanced Battery.

That’s the answer to whether or not you can recharge batteries in Raft. Have any suggestions for this guide? Let us know in the comment section below.
