9 Volt is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Fully charges the current activated item upon 9 Volt's first pickup.
  • If the current activated item has a recharge time of more than 1 bar, then it will grant 1 bar of charge whenever the item is activated.
  • If the current activated item has a recharge time of 1 bar, then it will change the item to have a timed recharge of 15 seconds. The recharging of the item only triggers so long as there are enemies present in the room in any fashion. Empty rooms do not cause recharging to start.
    • An enemy spawned in a cleared room will also cause recharging to start.
  • If the current activated item has a real-world unit-based recharge time, 9 Volt now makes autocharging items start at half charge instead of empty, allowing quicker reuse.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Enemies generated through a Slot Machine, Shell Game, or breaking Urns/Skulls will restart the charging process, even though a cleared room still counts as cleared if enemies are spawned in it.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 2-bar items: Fills the entire gauge in a single room, effectively granting the opportunity for the item to be used every room.
  • Added in Afterbirth † 3-bar items: Quadruple rooms and L-shaped rooms give 2 bars after clearing them, allowing one free use of the item in those rooms if the gauge is full upon entering them. It can also be used at the beginning of a Boss Challenge Room to get the full charges back after beating both bosses.
  • Added in Afterbirth † 4-bar items: In a Challenge Room, if the item is used during the first wave, it will get all its charges back at the end.
    • Added in Afterbirth † AAA Battery AAA Battery + 4-bar items: Same as the 3-bar item synergy without AAA Battery.
  • Added in Afterbirth † 15►The Candle The Candle: The Candle starts at half charge after use.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Brown Nugget Brown Nugget: Brown Nugget starts at half charge after use.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Removed in Repentance15►Sharp Plug Sharp Plug: Renders the Sharp Plug unusable on 2+ charge items. Sharp Plug can only be used if the item is at 0 charges, but 9 Volt instantly gives +1 charge to the item upon activation.
    • Added in Repentance Due to changes in how Sharp Plug works, the two items are now synergistic, lowering the cost of using Sharp Plug by half a heart on 2+ charge items.
  • Added in Repentance15►Everything Jar Everything Jar: If Everything Jar is held when 9 Volt is picked up, it will be fully charged instantly, but otherwise 9 Volt treats Everything Jar like a 1 charge item. However, it will not grant the slow, automatic recharge effect if Everything Jar already has at least one bar of charge.
