What ground devices do people like?

Ground devices in STO are IMHO ... useless.
I equip a remodulator and a stack of large hypos. Everything else is pretty much a waste of space. At low levels a tribble is nice to heal between fights (until you get a medic with decent abilities). Although it sucks to constantly remodulate - I found that the MACO ground gear is inferior compared to the much better gear you can find elsewhere in-game.
Energy cells don't seem to do much.
Flashlights are needed on certain maps, but are annoying (every time you get knocked down they shut off)
Shield batteries are completely useless - shields are so easy to rip through (and a lot of stuff completely ignores shields anyway), that you're better off clicking to fire your weapon than trying to regenerate your shields that will just drop again by the same amount with the next hit.
Tribbles - those that give combat bonuses can be ok.
Healing tribbles, food items = complete waste of space after 10th level.
Jem'hadar weapon modules = useless
As for pets... also useless. They're there for show, and nothing else.
Instead of wasting time clicking on a device, your time is far better spent firing an extra shot from your weapon.
