Powered Armor

Unlike light and heavy armor, powered armor requires its own battery, and comes with a fully charged battery at purchase. Powered armor uses the same type of batteries as other items, including charged weapons, and the battery for a suit of powered armor can be recharged as normal using a generator or recharging station (see page 234), or it can be replaced with a new battery when spent (see Table 7–9: Ammunition for battery pricing).

Sci-shield units protect scientists conducting dangerous fieldwork. The suit excels at deflecting radiation (granting protection against radiation as if it were item level 7). A biohacker or mechanic wearing a sci-shield unit treats their class level as two higher than normal for the purpose of determining the range of their custom microlab and remote hacking class features.
