Second I never said they were worthless I said you could sell the ones you don't use. I use a lot of shield batteries as a cruiser but amost no weapon batteries. I rarely use the engine or aux batteries at all either.
because if you sell them for more than a vendor, I will just go to the vendor.

Absolutely not a rumor, replicators buy items for 40% of their value, the Ferengi on Spacedock pays 50%.

I HAVE done the research, and that's why I said what I did.

So it just comes down to how badly I want to sell vs you wanting to buy and which of us wants to go back to the vendor.

Its still a rumor until I see numbers or see it for myself. You could say anything.

Cool verifiable numbers. Any idea what the Starfleet vendors pay out?

I'm rich (I've bought 8 tabs for my guild bank) here's how I got there

First I leveled hard to Admiral this makes it much easier to get a lot of money. Then I'm reselling items that I get from the defense missions... the weapon capacitors are selling for 50k (low level) to 250k (mk x) and the EPS flow regulators really vary alot but I've pulled 500k for a MK VIII ... thats how you make your money -

Goto a sector defense and then fill your ship up with good items (batterys and such are replicator trash)... you'll make good moneyt his way

So talking about replicators vs. vendors...do all vendors give the same credits for selling an item? It seemed that some vendors would give me more for an item than others, but I haven't confirmed that.

I've wondered that, myself, but haven't tried testing it out. I'm usually just selling things back to the same guy...
