Energy Cells are used to power equipment, such as artifacts.

Various energy cells may have different max charges, allowing for longer use. They can be recharged by more tinkering-oriented traders (in exchange for 1 dram of water per 500 charge units) or by using the recharge command granted by the Tinkerskill (which consumes 1 'A' bit per 3000 charge units). Recharge cost is rounded down, unless it would be rounded to 0.

Metered cells have a percentage readout, and High-capacity cells have their capacity increased by 62.5%. High-Capacity and Metered are item Mods.

Energy Cell types include:
