Although Craftopia begins with you living a humble life on a small island, there is so much more to discover. As you progress through the ages, you will unlock plenty of new recipes.
Some are certainly bound to catch your eye, such as the hoverboard and helicopter. However, getting one of these vehicles is a daunting task.

It all starts with getting wheat flour and bioethanol, but you'll also need to make some batteries. This guide will cover everything that you need to know to get batteries in Craftopia.
How To Build A Generator In Craftopia
Making batteries in Craftopia involves capturing animals. To get batteries, you need to put animals into a generator and have them run around the wheel to generate power.
There doesn't seem to be another way to get batteries, so we'll have to go ahead and make a generator. You'll need the following ingredients:
- 1 Steel Ingot
- 1x Cogwheel
- 5x Logs
All of the above items can be found on the starting island, so they should be easy to gather. You can craft a cogwheel at the workbench using iron ingots.
When you have a generator, place it down in your base and then head back to the workbench.
How To Tame Animals In Craftopia
To actually use the generator and get batteries, you need to tame an animal. To tame animals in Craftopia, you need to build some Monster Prisms.
These are essentially pokeballs, even down to the wobble as you wait to see whether you were successful in capturing a creature. When you have some Monster Prisms, head out into the wild and look for an animal.

Pokemon trainers should find this part pretty easy, but just like the old man in Viridian City, we'll walk you through the basics anyway.
When you find an animal, you need to weaken it to just below half health. When the creature is weakened, you can throw your monster prism at the animal.
If it makes contact, the creature will be sucked into the prism and, after a few tense wobbles, will be yours to command.
How To Get Batteries In Craftopia
With your trusty animal snuggled up in your monster prism, it's time to make some batteries. Head over to the generator and throw your captured animal into the empty wheel.
They will jump out of the prism and start running on the wheel, generating power in the form of batteries. Simply wait for the animal to finish and collect the batteries from the generator.
This does kill your new animal friend, so try to ignore the pieces of raw meat and leather whilst you fly around in your helicopter. It was worth it in the end.
