Description

The Small Power Battery will store power for use any time the method of generation does not exceed the system load. This device is useful for discharge under high load situations such as sustained maximum warp speed which can use vast amounts of power to maintain. It will recharge at 1,000 E / tick and provides 300 E / tick. You may want to install several to provide enough discharge capacity.

Remember that a Power Cell provides instant, high discharge and low capacity, while a Power Battery provides a low discharge rate with high capacity or energy storage.

This piece of equipment will increase system Capacity by 1,500,000, see the Large Power Battery for a 15,000,000 energy storage solution.
