The Fuel Cell is a part introduced in version 1.0 which converts liquid fuel and oxidizer into electric charge.


The fuel cell is well suited for several roles. Among these are:

  • Power production for long distance missions where solar panels no longer become efficient
  • Providing power to drilling platforms carrying a Convert-O-Tron 250 (as power production is effectively limitless)
  • A source of temporary high output power production (such as for extreme range communications)

Product description

A small fuel cell that allows fuel and oxidizer to be converted into energy. Handy for those places where a solar panel will not do. Also handy for re-heating snacks.
