The Drained electron charge pack is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A drained electron charge pack is the byproduct of a spent electron charge pack. Identical in appearance to the charged version, they are electron charge packs with very little charge left in them. Not enough to power a shot from an energy weapon, but enough that, if a player gathers more of them, the remaining charge can be pooled together to make fresh, usable packs.

Recipes[edit | edit source]

Recycling; electron charge packs - With a Science skill of 40, a player can pool the leftover charge from 4 drained electron charge packs to make a fully-charged and usable electron charge pack.

  • Requires: Science 40, 4 drained electron charge packs
  • Creates: 1 electron charge pack

Efficient Recycling; electron charge packs - With a Science skill of 65 and the Vigilant Recycler perk, a player can wring a little extra charge out of each drained pack, reducing the number of drained electron charge packs needed to make new ones.

  • Requires: Science 65; Vigilant Recycler; 3 drained electron charge packs
  • Creates: 1 electron charge pack

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Drained electron charge packs can be taken from the dead bodies of enemies wielding a Gatling laser or a laser RCW when they are killed.
  • After being favored by the Brotherhood of Steel, the various paladins will leave you various drained energy weapon cells and packs, including drained electron charge packs.
  • You may get a drained electron charge pack when you fire a weapon that uses the electron charge pack based on the type of ammunition you use.
