The "charger pods" are five beds inside the Boohball.
Each Boohbah "recharges its energy" - or more accurately, sleeps - inside of its pod, a strange-looking, fuzzy bed which is spun around as it charges up. When we first discover the Boohbahs, we find each one charging up in its pod....until the children shout out their names to wake them up. When the Boohbahs' day comes to an end, they return to the pods to fall asleep as the Boohball resumes its flight around the world.
A pod looks like a big white ladle, with glowing patterns etched all over it. The pod's bowl is fuzzy and is coloured a lighter shade of its respective Boohbah's colour.
On the show, the pods are connected to a strange-looking "monument" of cells, which is apparently meant to represent currents of the Boohbahs' energy, with each pod's handle and front linked to the poles on the edges of the monument and parts of it illuminating in different colours randomly; the monument rapidly circles the pods around when the Boohbahs are sleeping.
- One can also say the pods resemble fig halves (due to their shape and the Boohbahs sleeping inside them almost reminiscent of the seeds inside of the fig being exposed) or that they look like hammocks.
- The pods are extremely similar in appearance to (and may have been influenced by) the Kamino chairs in the Star Wars film Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Like them, they are shaped like giant spoons and too have a white spot in the bowl; the things that set the pods apart from the chairs are that their users sleep in them, they can spin around, they are colour-coded, and they have a fuzzy interior.
- In some books, like "Twirling, Whirling Swirl!", illustrations depict the pods as five beds placed on a fuzzy platform (without the cells filling in the gaps between each pod), making them look more like seats as opposed to hammocks. This also gives the illusion that if the pods were to spin, like on the show, they would circle around each-other manually and not propelled by the platform underneath.
