Powered Armor

Unlike light and heavy armor, powered armor requires its own battery, and comes with a fully charged battery at purchase. Powered armor uses the same type of batteries as other items, including charged weapons, and the battery for a suit of powered armor can be recharged as normal using a generator or recharging station (see page 234), or it can be replaced with a new battery when spent (see Table 7–9: Ammunition for battery pricing).

This armor is made of rubbery blue material grown by barathu conglomerates. It's most popular among early-stage barathus who are not yet as skilled at adapting to various environments.
This armor was developed by and designed for barathus; as such, they are highly adjustable, easily accommodating barathus’ ever-changing physiology. Reduce the DC for Engineering checks to adjust these armors by 5; if you pay a professional to adjust the armor instead of doing so yourself, the cost is 5% of the armor’s purchase price.
