Supercapacitor

Can output huge surges of power, but has a much lower capacity than batteries. Recharging the capacitors also takes much more power than batteries.

Supercapacitors are stationary installations able to store and release electrical power much quicker than conventional batteries, but with limited ability to store up energy.

Function

Supercapacitors are used to provide short bursts of high energetic output to Submarine Weapons.

Recharge rate can only be changed in 10% increments, setting the recharge rate past 70% will damage the supercapacitor, causing it to glow red and emit smoke.

In Campaign the supercapacitor's maximum capacity and recharge rate can be upgraded.

Default capacity, output, efficiency, recharge speed and recharge adjust speed can be changed in the Submarine Editor.

Damage Values

Unsuccessful attempts to repair the supercapacitor shocks the user.
