Craft Crystal Capacitor

( Psionics Handbook 3.0, p. 24)

[Item Creation, Psionic]

You can create psionic crystal capacitors that store power points (see Chapter 7: Psionic Items for rules about crystal capacitors).


Manifester level 9th+,


You can create a crystal capacitor that stores a number of power points equal to or less than your base power points for your highest manifester level. The nature of power point storage, at least in conjunction with this feat, allows a maximum of 17 power points to be stored in a single crystal capacitor. Moreover, a crystal capacitor's maximum is always an odd number. For instance, you'd never find a crystal capacitor with a maximum storage capacity of 6 power points (but you would find those that store a maximum of 5 or 7), or one that stores more than 17. Note that during use, a crystal capacitor very often contains even numbers of power points, just not when fully charged. Crafting a crystal capacitor takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a crystal capacitor is equal to the highest-level power it could manifest using all its stored power points, squared, multiplied by 1,000 gp. For example, the highest-level power a crystal capacitor that stores 5 power points could be used to manifest is a 3rd-level power: 3 x 3 x 1,000 = 9,000 gp. To encode a crystal capacitor, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing half this base price.
