We as humans wouldn't make a non-rechargeable battery for our ships. We don't do it in anything else that large, do we? .. true.. a car battery needs to be replaced every so often, but I would much rather buy a rechargeable battery for much higher cost, then stockpiling them in my inventory 300 at a time... see where I am going with this?

they can still charge a buttload of ECs, but I don't have to visit spacedock as frequently because I can get a good 1000 uses out of the frackin' thing. Sound good?

Maybe I purchase 5 of them to hold in my inventory.. that's 5000 uses and maybe it will cost me a 100K to do that. I dunno on the pricing structure, but its a damned good idea and it also is "more real"
