Swarm Battery

Source Starfinder #43: Icebound pg. 51, Starfinder #19: Fate of the Fifth pg. 52
Level 5; Price 550; Bulk L


A Swarm battery consists of still-living tissue that reflexively adapts to power any item, including non-Swarm varieties, functioning as a high-capacity battery with 40 charges. A Swarm battery can adapt to be recharged at any charging station. It also recharges on its own at the rate of 1 charge per hour, provided it remains within 60 feet of ambient nearby electricity, such as power conduits in a city, a starship’s power core, consistent static electricity, or even the small amount of electricity running through a living body.
