Clan Power Pack

Description[edit]

Clan Power Packs are a type of Power Pack produced by the Clans. As in many other technological areas the Clans have made tremendous advancements in the area of portable power supply. While their versions of the standard, micro, satchel and military power packs are the same size as standard Inner Sphere models, their use of advanced materials and zero-g construction methods means their packs weigh less and combine all the features of high-capacity and quick-charge batteries. Indeed Clan power packs are fully compatible with Inner Sphere equipment and weapons, and while the same is true with Clan gear only when their supply of Clan power packs is low will Clan warriors deign to use standard packs. They can be recharged in half the time and have greater capacity but are more expensive than their Inner Sphere counterpart.[1]
