One does not just command Battery to scurry into your dirty backpack.

[insert appropriate hobbit meme]

You and Battery must get to know each other.  You must nurture a relationship and speak reassuringly while carrying Battery.   Make Battery your friend.  Then just as you reach your wits end. 

Poof! 

Battery joins your party.

 

edit:  Over the past few days I have been experimenting with Battery.  Not to spoil my inquisition knowledge gained externally was precluded.  The screenshot that ThePanckaLady talked bout was all the fuel I needed.  Knowing it was possible drove my discovery.

When looking for Battery there are some vehicles that do not give them away.

Car with front end damage has no option to lift the hood.

Truck not only do not give Battery away.  Truck tease you showing Battery.

 

The one discovery made is concerning Battery against Bear.

It is possible to scare Bear away using Battery gang.

 

 

Battery would like to say that is not truthful.

To scare Bear does not take four and it takes Battery Five.

I was wondering the same thing. Same, LMB does not pick them up, only RMB to move them around.

I figured it out :)  When you RMB items, its weight is now added to your own.  Prior to that, it was advantageous to carry a heavy object around by RMBing it, instead of picking it up, because that essentially allows you to carry it for free.

Back then I noticed if I had an item RMBed, and I walked up to an area transition that you could walk through, the RMBed item was automatically forced into my inventory.  I haven't bothered to do that since Hinterland fixed the "RMBed items are weightless" exploit, but I tried it again with the battery and yup.  It goes right into your inventory.  It has to be an area transition that you walk through, such as the rail tunnel connecting ML and FM.  Presumably an explorable cave would work as well, although I haven't tried that.

Interesting. Never bothered to try this, never saw a reason too. But might be fun to play with, just for Science. Pretty sure Hinterland will increase the weight to a more "realistic" one when this is added to the game, so time to play now, before it changes. The differing states of decay make good sense, since IRL car batteries do decay, and become more and more unable to hold a charge over time, and under certain circumstances. Otherwise we would never need to replace them with new ones.

That trick works with every "scene change", meaning every loading screen.

Battery was stubborn and did not want to leave the vehicle.

The situation was grim.

Went to church and prayed for slavage-tion.

Back in business baby!

 

 

Battery Logistics

When moving Battery it is easiest to just lug them.  It takes the most in game time and real time.

The best method to move a Battery group is 'leap frog'. 

 

screen_b1a456fb-eb1d-4e01-a8e3-75d2a39bbb0d.thumb.png.71afae1004548c7740be11bdceb6890c.png

Stand behind and place Battery from the back to the front.

 

A variation is the 'side leap frog'.

Stand adjacent to the Battery group and place Battery from the back to the front.

This is demanding on the user but the advantage is this will move a Battery group quickly.

 

Collecting Battery

It is electrifying!

Battery loves to stick on walls.

Battery rubbed quickly back and forth on your head hair makes static electricity.

Battery spent much mojo trying to dispel the Energizer Bunny.

Not sure if this worked or not.  Might have mispronounced the incantations.

Returning a reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power
Crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay 🎶 🔋

Thought I was collecting Battery for fun?

 

AvE is just the right type of crazy canuck the Long Dark deserves.

In this episode Battery is given an autopsy.  Sorry Battery we need your body for scientific experimentation.  The information obtained is that antimony is added to the plumbous to fabricate the plates.  This is great for the purpose of crafting slugs as the resulting alloy is stiffer than plain plumbous. 

Now to figure out where to find the ingredients for the propellant.
