Energy cell (Fallout 3)
|For an overview of small energy cells throughout the Fallout series, see Small energy cell.|
Produced by Wattz Electronics with a low shelf life, energy cells were used for many things such as energy weapons and regular household appliances. It is a small, self-contained energy storage unit often associated with one-handed energy weapons; a single cell contains three batteries, each with a capacity of 1040.8 volts of direct current.
Energy cells in Fallout 3 bear a striking resemblance to 3 regular AA batteries attached to each other.
Energy cells are most commonly found on robots, but merchants also sell them in large amounts. Unfortunately, they sell them for at least 2 caps each, making them quite pricey. If you have a lot of these, you can sell them for large amounts of caps.
