TARDIS Technical Index

Transducer Power Cells

Transducer Power Cell

These Power Cells are among the first thing to grow on a newborn TARDIS. If these Emergency Power Units fail, there is also a back-up system of emergency storage cells that can provide limited power. Using a hyperspatial loop this power can be transferred to the Transpower System. These transducer power cells can allow the TARDIS to absorb thousands, if not millions, of megawatts of almost any type of energy (including electrical output from a nuclear reactor). The Power Cells are even capable of absorbing the raw artron energy of a Time Lord's future. It takes 24 hours to charge a Power Cell.
