Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Throughput Rate: 1 Units/s
  • Power Capacity: 32 Units

Like the Medium Battery, Small Batteries accumulate power from the network they're connected to whenever production exceeds demand, and no other machines require extra power. The battery will provide power whenever the network doesn't produce enough energy.

The maximum charge and discharge speed of a Small Battery matches the speed the backpack charges and discharges, even though the appearance of the Small Battery's bars progresses more slowly due to its much larger storage capacity.

A Small Battery holds more than three times as much power as the backpack itself does, and can fill in 32 of the backpack's ten Units, increasing the power available for Terrain Tool augments by more than 300%.

A vehicle such as the Tractor can be indirectly supplied with power from your Tether network by charging a Small Battery in your backpack then placing it on the vehicle. A Tractor can drive for over 7 minutes with a fully-charged Small Battery.

The Small Battery can be paired with the Medium Storage silo to triple storage capacity compared to the Medium Battery. This can be easily done at no cost due to the small batteries being so abundant in wrecks (particularly platforms, not full ship wrecks) or through 1 Lithium found on Vesania or Novus.
