The drained small energy cell is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.

CharacteristicsEdit

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

RecipesEdit

Recycling; small energy cells - With a Science skill of 10, a player character can pool the leftover charge from four drained energy cells to make a fully-charged and usable energy cell.

  • Requires: Science 10, four drained energy cells
  • Creates: One small energy cell

Efficient recycling; small energy cells - With a Science skill of 35 and the Vigilant Recycler perk, a player character can wring a little extra charge out of each drained cell, reducing the number of drained cells needed to make new ones.

  • Requires: Science 35; Vigilant Recycler; three drained energy cells
  • Creates: One small energy cell

Honest Hearts adds the following recipe requiring drained small energy cells to the workbench.

Conversion; fission battery to small energy cells - With a Science skill of 45, a player character can transfer the stored energy in a battery into drained energy cells.

  • Requires: Science 45; one fission battery, five drained energy cells
  • Creates: 25 small energy cells
