The Medium Battery is one of the types of Batteries in Astroneer which stores power.
- Power Throughput Rate: 3 Units/s
- Power Capacity: 256 Units
- The Medium Battery has 16 visible columns, each of which is equivalent to 16 Units.
Like the Small Battery, Medium Batteries accumulate power when production of energy exceeds demand for energy. The Medium Battery will give away its stored energy whenever the network doesn't produce enough energy.
- Lacking visible horizontal lines to mark individual 'bars' like a Small Battery would, each of the vertical 16 columns is effectively four bars on a Small Battery.
- Accounting for size efficiency, it could ostensibly be useful in some situations to fill a Medium Storage with Small Batteries if throughput is desired. Total energy capacity remains the same (Each of the 8 Small Batteries holds 1/8th the power of the Medium Battery), however this costs 8 Lithium and 2 Resin. Using Medium Storage Silos instead increases the total cost to 24 Lithium and 2 Titanium, but also allows you to store 3x the energy in the same space, with 8x the power transfer rate.
- Medium Batteries used to be able to be found deep in caves at the end of tunnels rarely.
