Before you can build a crazy contraption in Tears of the Kingdom, you need to ensure that you have enough energy to power it. You begin the adventure with a single Energy Cell, and Link can craft Energy Wells to increase the Energy Cell’s maximum capacity, but he must seek out Crystal Refineries to do so. Here are all Crystal Refinery locations in Tears of the Kingdom.
Every Crystal Refinery location in Tears of the Kingdom
There are exactly two Crystal Refineries in all of Hyrule, and they are both in very convenient locations. One is on Great Sky Island, where you started your adventure, and the other is right outside of Lookout Landing.
The first Crystal Refinery is one you will come across naturally as you are making your way through the Great Sky Island during the early hours of Tears of the Kingdom. Right next to the Nachoyah Shrine, where you gained the Recall ability, is a Steward Construct that can refine your Crystallized Charges.

The second Crystal Refinery is right outside of Lookout Landing, to the north. A chunk of Great Sky Island landed right next to Lookout Landing, and it just so happened to have a Crystal Refinery on it. Convenient, isn’t it?
How to get more Crystallized Charges and Zonaite
Crystal Refineries allow you to spend 100 Crystallized Charges to create an Energy Well, which increases your Energy Cell’s maximum energy cap.
To obtain Crystallized Charges, you need to visit a forge. There are forges all over Hyrule, but our favorite location is the one inside the Mining Cave on Great Sky Island, as it is fairly easy to get to. It also has some Zonaite nodes that you can mine.
Once you are at the forge, talk to the Construct to trade in Zonaite for Crystallized Charges. Each forge has a limited capacity of Crystallized Charges—once you buy them all, you have to wait for a new batch to process.
Low on Zonaite? You can find some within caves in the sky, but most of the Zonaite nodes are in the depths. Be prepared before you venture into the depths, as you need sources of light and plenty of food. Zonaite is pretty rare on the surface of Hyrule, so it is better to look elsewhere.
