Batteries used to power many different ship systems. Unlike other resources, batteries cannot be stored in Storage Bays.
Batteries are a special refined resource produced by reactors, such as the Small Reactor Core. Crew transport batteries to all parts that require power. They can be stored in Power Capacitors to provide localised storage caches with no risk of explosion.
Batteries come in three different sizes, from small to large, each produced by the respective reactor size. Small batteries are worth 1,000 power, medium batteries are worth 2,000 power, and large batteries are worth 3,000 power. Larger batteries allow for more power to be delivered at once by any single crew member, but also take longer to charge.
Unlike other resources, batteries cannot be stored in a Storage Bay.
