We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Power Cells are a consumable power source. Once crafted, they provide power to whatever they are attached to. Once all 8 cells are depleted, the Power Cells will be destroyed.

Usage[edit | edit source]

  • Power Cells are actually a set of 8 cells that contains 2 units of power each (total of 16 units or the equivalent of 4 bars).
  • Whenever your character is consuming power, it will drain the Power Cells first. Once the Power Cells have been depleted they will be consumed.
  • Its main function is to provide an emergency supply of power when the player's vehicle is stranded.
  • 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.
