Special Properties

Constantly charges the smaller Power Batteries which in turn charge about 3600 individual Green Lantern Rings.

Note: The imprisonment within the Central Power Battery of Parallax - a yellow being composed of pure fear - created an impurity making Green Lantern Rings incapable of manipulating objects colored yellow, and the champions of the Guardians of the Universe, the Green Lanterns, susceptible to the only thing that could break their will - fear.

With few exceptions the Power Ring is limited to a 24 hour charge and must be recharged in the Power Battery on a daily basis.

After their failures with the Halla and the android Manhunters, the Guardians of the Universe focused their mental energies into the Central Power Battery.

The Central Power Battery in turn feeds a network of smaller batteries possessed by emissaries in 3600 sectors of the universe. Each possessor of a battery regularly charges their powerful Green Lantern Rings which they use in service of order and peace as the Green Lantern Corps.
