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

Zonai devices are an essential tool in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, letting you build and operate things like fans that offer a nice blast of air, rockets for speedy boosts, flame emitters for weaponry and hot air balloons to glide through Hyrule. But there's one thing to keep in mind if you want to get the most out of these handy gadgets. You'll need a lot of Zonai Capsules to make them all work.

So how do you go about obtaining these items and making sure you have enough to construct your dream creations? Well, you'll need to find and use a Device Dispenser, which looks like a gumball machine (or capsule vending machine for the younger players out there). Located throughout Hyrule, they work by allowing you to trade in Zonai Charges. Each dispenser has a specific set of Zonai Devices it offers, which can be viewed by hovering over the icon on your map once you discover the location.

The first Device Dispenser you'll encounter is on the Great Sky Island, near the mine cart spawn point. You'll have to use the fan-powered minecart here to reach an elevated area of the island and then walk towards a pedestal with what looks ominously like a gumball machine on top. Once you've dropped a few Zonai Charges in the input bowl, it will live up to its name and provide you with various items including fans, emitters, and, of course, the Wing.

You can also obtain Zonai Capsules by defeating Soldier Construct enemies in story missions, inside Shrines or on the numerous sky islands found across Hyrule. Keep in mind, though, that they're limited to one per battle and will eventually respawn after your enemies have been defeated. Additionally, you can't open up the same Zonai Capsule more than once, so make sure you're ready for whatever the latest device may be when you open it.

How To Use Zonai Device

Zonai devices can be an incredibly useful tool in The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Wars, capable of launching Link into the air, turning lava into a walkable platform, or firing laser beams. But they can only be used when you have a fully charged Zonai Device Capsule, which can only be acquired from Device Dispensers and chests scattered throughout Hyrule.
