The Lightning Rod creates a Battery Pack.png Battery Pack 24 hours after getting hit by lightning during a storm.

The exact placement of the rod on The Farm has no bearing on the chance to intercept a lightning strike, rods do not protect a specific area. Lightning is more likely to strike trees than crops, but a Lightning Rod have a very good chance of intercepting lightning strikes (if they aren't already processing a lightning bolt). It is also not necessary to be on the farm while the lightning strike happens. A lightning rod can be received when the 10,000 Bundle is completed in the Community Center.


Though it is possible to place lightning rods outside of the farm map they will never get hit by lightning there and thus produce no battery packs outside of the farm.
