The Zonai continues to significantly influence the narrative of Tears of the Kingdom following their extinction in Breath of the Wild. This resulted in many of its people gone from Hyrule, but their culture, knowledge, and technologies remain as Link finds himself collecting Zonai Charges and acquiring Zonai Devices.

Zonai Devices can be found throughout the world; however, it’s most commonly found in exchanging a specific material to earn a device. If you’re wondering how to acquire a Zonai Device, continue following this guide as we reveal all Zonai Devices and how to get them in Tears of the Kingdom.

In our guide explaining Zonai Charges, we’ve detailed that these items can be acquired by defeating Soldier Construct enemies through Story Quests, exploration, or inside Shrines. As these are loot drops, these can be used to power up Zonai Devices temporarily, but how does one acquire a Zonai Device?

During explorations of the Sky Islands, some Zonai Devices can be seen on the ground, which can be used for various Autobuild or Fuse combinations. Additionally, a few Construct NPCs can gift you Zonai Devices within Zonai Capsules, which you can access from your Inventory.

However, the most common way players can get a Zonai Device is by locating one of 30 Device Dispensers throughout the Sky Islands. These Dispensers are found nearby Shrines, which should be easy to find if the Shrines are activated and unlock their Fast Travel points.

You may chat with the Maker Construct working at the Dispenser to better understand how it works, but you can place a Zonai Charge or Soldier Construct Horn in the bowl provided. As Link can only hold five items at a time, an exchange happens where the Dispenser will return Zonai Capsules, for which a randomized device can be found inside.
