Shielding Shard is a Product used to energize Deflector Shield, Exosuit Hazard Protection or Hazard Protection Units.


Shielding Shard is used to store energy for various types of equipment. They do not stack in your inventory.

Since they are built with 70% Iron, the only oxide element that cannot be used to recharge devices, the Shielding line is a relatively cheap and reliable method to recharge your Exosuit Hazard Protection, Hazard Protection Units and Deflector Shield.
