For a cross-game overview of this perk, see Solar Powered.

With the Solar Powered perk, you gain an additional 2 points to Strength when in direct sunlight, and slowly regenerate lost Health.— Perk description

Solar Powered is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects

The perk temporarily grants +2 Strength and regenerates one HP every 30 in-game seconds (or every real-world second.) It is functional only while being outdoors during daytime from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Notes

  • The perk synergizes well with Rad Absorption for healing minor health damage and minor radiation poisoning.
  • Due to the Strength increase when the perk is in effect, if one is within 20 pounds of being overencumbered, they will become overencumbered upon entering any indoor area or after 6PM unless their Strength (without the bonus) is already 10. This includes bonuses from equipment, chems, other perks, etc.
  • The perk used to regenerate one HP every ten seconds like in Fallout 3. The regeneration rate was increased to one HP per second in a later patch.[citation needed]
