Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Throughput Rate: 1 U/s
  • Power Capacity: 48 U
  • Power Cells will fill one bar of a Small Battery in 4 seconds.
  • Power Cells contain 1.5x as much Power as a Small Battery.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Power Cells discharge to the player's backpack automatically if it isn't already full.
  • Due to their small size and relatively high energy density, a single Power Cell can fuel a Icon Rover.png Buggy for 42 minutes. They aren't useless on Medium Rovers, either.
