  • Power Cells contain 1.5x as much Power as a Small Battery.
  • Power Cells cannot be recharged, and instead evaporate once depleted.


  • Power Cells discharge to the player's backpack automatically if it isn't already full.
  • Due to their small size and relatively high energy density, a single Power Cell can fuel a Buggy for 42 minutes. They aren't useless on Medium Rovers, either being able to power them for 96 seconds or 1 minute 36 seconds using only one power cell
