  • Text on the side reads "BATT MAN" which one would assume is the manufacturer. However, it's actually manufactured by Zaltonic Electronics. Inspecting the part, it resembles two consumer batteries snapped into a single package. Zaltonic probably purchased off-the-shelf BATT MAN batteries, put them in a single unit, and offers it to sale for other users.
  • Obviously, the text "BATT MAN" is a reference to the D.C. Superhero: Batman.
  • The green light on top of the Z-100 is always on yet uses no EC, making it useful as a navigation light.


  • Moved from Utility to Electrical
Made physics-less part mass affect KB mass value. (Thus, the Z-100 no longer has an effective mass of zero.)
  • "PhysicsSignificance = 1" added. The part now has 0 mass and drag, despite the listed values.
  • Fixed spelling error in name (Z-100 Rechargable Battery BankZ-100 Rechargeable Battery Bank)
