Power recharge speed
 
is there a skill or console that increases the speed of recharge for a specific subsystem or globally - not power transfer.


Also getting more then 125 for specific subsystem would be a waste (or will excess be redirected to other systems/improve recharge speed instead)?

Natural passive recharge?, not that I'm aware of.

I believe though I've read that a flow capacitor console can help quickly restore a weapon power level from a beam overload or quickly restore power transfers. There are battery devices (weapons etc) and emergency power to X that can instantly recharge a subsystem ... not sure if that's what you're looking for.

As far as getting more than 125 for a subsytem, you can exceed that value but it doesn't show. As far as I understand it think of it like a hill. The flat section is 100%, the top is 125% the optimum bonus' you can get for exceeding 100%, after 125% the bonus begin to decrease. Its almost like a balancing act trying to keep it at the ideal 125% level, depending on what skills you're using and your playstyle.

you're thinking of EPS Flow Regulators. Flow Capacitors boost the captain skill of the same name, which in turn boosts the effectiveness of powers that drain shields or energy

Flow regulators that's it. My mistake

Starship Electro-Plasma Systems is the skill that brings up your power levels faster. I don't think there's a console that boosts it, but some deflectors like MACO do.

EPS Flow Regulators, like i've already said above

From what I gather, they used to help with energy recovery, but now only help with transfers. EPS Flow Regulator consoles have no visible impact on recovery from Full Impulse for instance, but are a huge help when flipping between power presets.
