How to Use Zonai Device Capsules in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Zonai devices in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are a fantastic way to create new contraptions, whether they're for combat, exploration, puzzle-solving, or general silliness. However, many of them can't be carried around like weapons or tools, and the fact that they need to be activated in order to work can be a bit of a pain. This is where Zonai Device Capsules come in, allowing players to power up devices that they can keep in their inventory without the need to continually activate them. This guide will cover how to get Zonai Device Capsules, what they're used for, and where to find them.

Unlike the weapons and items found in Breath of the Wild, most of the devices that can be created in The Legend of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom are based on science rather than ancient lore. Luckily, the developers have made the process of creating these amazing contraptions relatively simple. To start, you'll need to acquire the necessary components by finding Zonai Device Dispensers. These large pedestals, with a crystal ball-like structure on top, can be found throughout the Sky Islands and Depths. They're typically found on islands that also house a Shrine, and you can locate them by looking for a seafoam green circle on the map.

These dispensers are similar to the weapon dispensers in that they accept two forms of currency — Build Horns and Zonai Charges, which are both dropped by destroying constructs. By dropping one of these into the pedestal, you'll be rewarded with the device you selected, as well as a capsule that can hold up to five devices at a time. To take out a device, you simply select it in the Zonai Device portion of your inventory and hit "take out device."

Once you've got the gadgets you want, it's time to use them. To do this, you'll need a Zonai Energy Cell, which acts much like a battery, but that can be refilled automatically. You can also purchase more from Zonai Device Dispensers and chests, as well as from the shop in Clock Town.

The most common device is the Zonai Fan, which can be crafted by combining an Energy Cell with a Portable Pot. This is the cheapest method of creating a Zonai Fan, and it can be used to cool down hot air balloons, give rockets an extra burst of thrust, and control creations in the Sky Islands' runways.

Other devices can be obtained by fusing the items you have collected in the Zonai Devices section of your inventory, and there are plenty to choose from. A fused Construct Head, for example, can increase your attack power, while a Fused Steering Stick can make it easier to control your creations in the Sky Islands.
