The Charge Reactor is an efficient power supply that generates vast amounts of electric power without consuming large amounts of fuels or producing significant waste heat. Although its output is relentless, it can be depleted. The Charge Reactor was originally designed by Aerion Technologies' laboratory department. The prototype was relatively small in size, about 10cm in diameter.
The prototypical version of the device consists of a chamber of hydrogen-charged palladium rings, that are constantly exposed to electric arc discharges from a mutual induction unit. The hydrogen released from the palladium rings are used to run a fuel cell that generates stable electric power. The hydrogen cell uses as fuel and from the air as oxidant.
Palladium rings Edit
When palladium is at room temperature and atmospheric pressure, it can absorb up to 900 times its own volume of hydrogen, which makes palladium an efficient and safe storage medium for hydrogen and hydrogen isotopes for the fuel cell.
According to the original plans, the mutual induction unit that jumpstarts the reactor process is powered by less than 9 volts of battery power. The transformer will not rely on the battery for the rest of the process, as the reactor produces enough power to run the transformer aswell.
The makeshift version is relatively cheap compared to the amount of power it creates. The entire plans for the Charge Reactor have not been publicized, and have been deemed strictly classified. Some components are obvious and are listed here.
