I don't get how gems work, I just know they do.


Winona's G.E.M.erator is a Character-exclusive Structure craftable only by Winona in Don't Starve Together. It is found in the Engineering Tab and requires one Trusty Tape, two Boards, and two Electrical Doodads to craft. It is used to power nearby Winona's Catapult and Winona's Spotlight.

A full Winona's G.E.M.erator has a charge of 2880 seconds (6 days). Each connected structure drains 1 second of charge per second. If a structure is connected to multiple generators the drain is divided by the number of connected generator. A Winona's G.E.M.erator has a minimal drain of 0.2 second of charge per second.

A Winona's G.E.M.erator starts without charge, it can be filled with Gems of any color to add one third of full charge per Gem. The Iridescent Gem cannot be used as fuel.

Gems are stored by supplied order in the top part of the Winona's G.E.M.erator. When the generator reach 0, 1/3 or 2/3 the last supplied gem is destroyed. Upon destruction of the Winona's G.E.M.erator all stored gems are dropped except the last supplied gem.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Winona's G.E.M.erator, alongside her other gadgets and the Engineering Tab, was introduced in her Character Update as part of the character overhaul for Don't Starve Together.
  • According to Rhymes With Play #228, Winona's G.E.M.erator was supposed to be a battery, but was rather named a G.E.M.erator partly because of the wordplay.[1]
