This article is about Power Cell in Subnautica. For the related article on the Below Zero Wiki, see Power_Cell.

The Power Cell is an electronics item that can be crafted in the Fabricator. Power Cells can only be crafted after the player has crafted a Battery. The Power Cell is primarily used to power vehicles.

A Power Cell stores 200 energy. Vehicles require Power Cells to run, and will drain their Energy with use. Power Cells can be recharged using a Power Cell Charger. Power Cells in vehicles can be charged by docking at a Moonpool.

In Creative Mode, vehicles do not consume Energy from Power Cells.

Story Spoiler
