Batteries are stationary installations able to store and release electrical power.

Function[edit | edit source]

Batteries can be useful for stabilizing the submarine's power. They can absorb power when the Nuclear Reactor overproduces and menaces to overload and damage connected devices. When the reactor fails to provide enough currents for devices to function (be it because the reactor doesn't produce enough, is not connected to the device anymore, or is destroyed), batteries can provide back-up power for a substantial amount of time depending on the amount of power they have stored. This allows the maintenance to be safely performed on the reactor in the event of an unforeseen problem.

Moreover, up to 3 Battery Cells or Fulgurium Battery Cells at a time can be placed into the battery to be recharged.

Decay rate[edit | edit source]

On, Off, in-use or not in use, Batteries decay at the same rate. The only time their decay rate changes is when submerged in water.
