The Lightning Rod also provides a small radius of light (but not heat) after absorbing a lightning bolt, which is just bright enough to survive at night. The light lasts for a few Days and will go dark as soon as morning comes. The Charged Lightning Rod makes a charging sound and animation every once in a while. It should be noted that in the Reign of Giants DLC, if you have a Lightning Rod and a Volt Goat in a close vicinity, they both have an equal chance of lightning striking them.

- When a charged lightning rod is examined by Wilson, he says "The power is mine!".
- Most characters seem to act like they can use the power of the Lightning Rod, which may suggest future plans for the charged Lightning Rod.
- Contrary to popular belief, placing Logs near a Lightning Rod will not turn them into Living Logs when Lightning strikes.
