The Z-1k Rechargeable Battery Bank is a part that stores 1000 units of electrical charge for a spacecraft. It stores 10 times as much energy as a Z-100, and has ten times as much mass, making it equally weight-effective. It can be used as a structural element (unlike the radial batteries), and the round shape and attachment nodes make it fit better into some rocket designs. It also makes a decent mid-sized rover base.

Since the Z-100 and the Z-400 battery packs are both massless and cause no drag, it is almost always preferable to use one of them instead of these round battery banks.


The Z-1k is a stackable battery bank, with ten times the power capacity of the Z-100.
