Power supply

From PathfinderWiki
(Redirected from Battery)

Most technology encountered on Golarion requires a power source, of which most have been destroyed, expended, or dormant since the Rain of Stars. There are two primary power sources still available: batteries and generators.[1]

Batteries

Batteries are specially crafted cells, often portable, that store power over extended periods of time in a stable physical form, allowing it to be expended as needed. Batteries have limited capacities and must be recharged once spent.[1]

Generators

Generators continually produce power, either by consuming fuel or converting other forms of ambient power. Such power conversion makes generators dependent on being near a fuel source or too cumbersome to be easily moved. While a generator with sufficient fuel does not run out of power when used, it does have a maximum output capacity, its yield, that may cause other connected technology to fail if exceeded.[1][2]
