The Small Generator is one of the Generators in Astroneer and produces power when consuming Organics.

Usage[edit | edit source]

This generator can be placed in either a Widget slot on a player's backpack or on a platform slot. Once a stack of Organic is placed on top of it, the generator will convert the organic to energy over time.

Once started, the generator will consume the block of Organic even when there is no power needed on the backpack or in the network. Once the block of organic has be attached to the generator it cannot be removed and will be completely consumed.

  • The generator produces at a rate of 1 unit/sec or 4 sec/bar. One stack of Organic will run for 40 seconds and fill 10 bars

Trivia[edit | edit source]

In the Excavation Update, the Small Generator swapped places with the Small Solar Panel, specifically as a power management tutorial
