"This lift could use a few dry cells."

Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 1

The Dry Cell, also known as Batteries, are two items that only appear in Chapter 1 of Bendy and the Ink Machine. They are used to power up a lift that carries the Ink Machine.



The dry cell is a golden brown rectangular prism, with a bolted-on pale yellow label with a lightning bolt insignia and rectangle outline on all sides, expect the top and bottom, which have 3 parallel groves and one T-shaped grove above them.


The dry cell batteries are, like all batteries, miniature power sources. The dry cell battery is commonly used to power portable electric machinery. In this case, the Ink Machine is powered by such batteries.


Bendy and the Ink Machine

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

Henry has to find two dry cells in the Ink Machine room in order to power up the Ink Machine's lift. One dry cell is found in a shelf, and the other is found inside the chest. Once finding both of them, Henry must place one dry cell to the machine at a time, then activating the switch afterwards.

Chapter 5: The Last Reel

Apparently the power source of the glass tubes in the ink machine pumping station, two dry cells appear placed inside a small machine connected to one of the glass tubes pumping ink. However, unlike in Chapter 1, they are unusable.


  • From older updates prior to the release of Chapter 4, this item was not implemented since the old version of the Ink Machine room is smaller and far different, with no lift or balcony.



  • The dry cell is based upon the real life battery invented in 1886 by German inventor Carl Gassner.
