What is Energy?

Energy is the most needed motive in The Sims Mobile. Sims will not be able to work or do any activities without energy.
It is the only motive that you will use in your Sims' daily life. Aside from sleeping in the bed, you can recharge your Sims' energy bar in various ways.

Usage of Energy

To perform at each Hobby and Career event, you will necessitate to use energy. You must have adequate energy to finish every event you will participate.
Aside from those events, Special and Social event requires enough energy to perform actions and to complete it.

How to Recharge your Energy

Recharging your Sims' energy is quick and easy compared before the update. Tapping the energy bar is a shortcut to check what object is available for you to use to recharge energy. Each object can recharge a certain amount of energy in just 5 seconds. In case you already used all of the recharge objects, you have an option to use a cupcake for recharging 30 Energy Points. Be mindful of using cupcake as they are quite expensive.

Sleep in the Bed

Sleeping in the bed can give you almost half of energy motive bar and 4 XP. Your Sim can take a nap again and recharge energy after 23 hours.

Use the Toilet

By using the toilet, you can gain small portion of energy and 2 XP. The toilet can be used again to recharge your Sims' energy after 2 hours.

Rinse in the Shower

Taking a quick rinse in the shower will replenish a few Energy points and you'll get 2 XP as well. You need to wait for 5 hours before you can use the shower to recharge again.

Take a Bath

You can recharge your energy bar by half by taking a dip in the bathtub. You'll get 3 XP too. The cheapest bathtub which is the Ultra-Spramp Grime-B-Gone will cost you a hefty amount of SimCash. It's 150 Simcash each. Another downside is you can use the bathtub again after 1 day and 21 hours of waiting.

Eat a Cupcake

To quickly replenish your energy bar, eat a cupcake. Each cupcake can give you 30 Energy points; however, it will cost you Simcash. 5 cupcakes will cost 75 SimCash. Good thing is you can get a cupcake each day by completing the tasks in the Daily To Do List and sometimes as a daily log in reward from one of your Sims.

Object Improvements

The number of energy you'll be receiving for each object is not limited. You can still improve it by adding the required object in your household. Some of these are quite hard to attain, but nothing is impossible if you have the effort and tons of SimCash.

On the rectangle where it displays my energy, why is there a cupcake beside of the Sim head? I don't know what this means and haven't been able to find any answers for my question. Please HELP!
What if you have no bath
I used to gain cupcakes by completing the ‘To Do List’. That has now been scrapped since the update and Llamazoom has replaced it. However, Llamazoom does not give out cupcakes.
How do you gain cupcakes for free?
How can I get new cupcakes? Since there’s LamaZoom to perform daily tasks I don’t get cupcakes anymore.
If I buy 2 Stanke lamps will I get extra energy from both?

Is there any other way to get energy

My Kiddo bop mirror doesn't add energy to the bed and neither does my Stanke Mirror. The toilet paper adds energy to my toulet but not the plush fluffy hand towel. Waste of money and tickets.

I'm having the same issue. It is ridiculous. The prices for simcash are already utterly outrageous and now we aren't even reaping the benefits. EA is already a money hungry developer that doesn't give a shit about their customers, just their money. The least they could do is provide a game that works. You can't even get heirloom tickets for less than the simcash equivalent of ten bucks.

I bought an updated sink and didn't get the additional 2 energy on toilets as it says I am supposed to. Bought the golden towel and no increase on the shower. So ridiculous

It's been like that since the game launched. They're not going to fix it. It's EA, they're more concerned about making the game harder to force payment than fix anything.
I have bought the towel and the soap and I was supposed to get an extra energy for each one and I got nothing, what’s the point in buying items to increase your energy if they don’t add it on .

You're getting it wrong. It means that you are getting an additional energy if you used the toilet or the shower . Its not literally an additional to the 30 energy you have. :) its will be forever 30 energy. hope this help. :D

You misunderstood. We meant they did not add the energy to those items as it should.
OK, why is it that I have 2 sims in one house and if one single uses the shower, bed, or toilet the other Sim can't use it? And I have two beds, but if a simple uses one bed, the other bed cannot be used either! It is super irritating... And makes it hard to play.

Buying items to boost beds energy regen by more than 12. Bought a kids mirror that brought it to 15 but another item that promises plus two to beds did nothing. Is there a cap on how much you can increase regen?
