The "charger pods" are five beds inside the Boohball.
Each Boohbah has their own "charger pod" - a strange-looking cocoon-like bed - within the Boohball, where they sleep (or "recharge" energy) the ball flies around the world.
A pod looks like a big, white organic ladle. The exterior has many scribbly patterns embossed all over it; the inside of the pod is soft and fuzzy in texture, and is coloured a pastel shade of its respective Boohbah's colour.
On the show, the pods are connected to a glowing white "monument", 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. These poles are attached to a circular platform, which either slowly circles the pods around (apparently usually when the Boohbahs are sleeping) or rapidly spins them around (typically when the children shout out the Boohbahs' names to wake them up).
- 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).
- The pods are extremely similar in appearance to (and may have been influenced by) the chairs in Lama Su's office in the Star Wars film Episode II: Attack of the Clones; both the chairs and the pods look like spoons, are suspended from something, and are similar in shape.
- In some books, like "Twirling, Whirling Swirl!", illustrations depict the pods as being placed on a fuzzy platform, making them look more like seats as opposed to hammocks. This may indicate 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.
- In other books, like in "Sparkly Boohball", the pods are depicted the same way they are in the show - suspended from the poles of a "monument" akin to hammocks.
