Since rods do not protect a specific area, the exact placement of a rod on the farm has no bearing on its chance to intercept a lightning strike. A Lightning Rod has a very good chance of intercepting a lightning bolt if it isn't already processing one.
Since each rod only protects the farm from harm if it is not already processing a previous lightning strike, it is advisable to place multiple rods on the farm. The number of lightning strikes during one day is random.
- Though it is possible to place lightning rods outside of the farm map, they will never get hit by lightning there, and thus will produce no battery packs.
- Storms (and thus lightning) never occur in Winter.
- More lightning will strike the longer you stay awake, necessitating more lightning rods.
- 1.4: Lightning Rods are now ready to harvest the day after a storm, instead of 24 hours later. Lighting Rods can now be stacked in a player's inventory and in chests.
