Power Cells are one of the power sources in Astroneer.

Description[edit | edit source]

Power Cells, once printed, provide power to whatever they are attached to. Once all 8 cells are depleted, the item self-destructs.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Once you have acquired the research and learned Power Cells you will be able to construct them via your Backpack's Printer with one Compound.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Power Cells is actually a set of 8 cells that contains 2 units of power each (total of 16 units or the equivalent of 4 bars (need confirmation !)).

Whenever your character is consuming power, it will drain the Power Cells first. Once the Power Cells have been depleted they will be consumed.

Power Cells are an easy way to supplement power when you have a surplus of Compound.

Alternatively, the Power Cells can be added to any open slot on your base.
