Radioisotope Emissive Generators like this one are the United Governments' newest generation of radioisotope power sources. They use radioactive isotopes separated in natural decay and change them into electric energy using emission generators. Their construction is done a bit differently from producer to producer, but in general their principle of action has remained unchanged over the last century: the energy difference between electrons in a stream from Fermi energy.

In comparison with core reactors, which use a chain reaction, even the "great grandfathers" of modern REGS, RITEG (Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators) were already very compact and simple to build over 100 years before the reset. However, the power output of the first RITEGS was not very high (up to a few hundred watts) and they didn't have a very high performance coefficient. On the other hand, they had no moving parts and did not require service for their whole lifespan, which at that time could reach as high as decades.

In that the REG uses radioactive isotopes of various chemical elements as a fuel core, in 132 A.R., their distribution and circulation are controlled by two government institutions: the United Governments Department of Energy (Science Corps division), and the Emergency Management Agency (Social Corps division). At present REGs are used rarely in Underearth due to the wide availability of compact and safe high-volume batteries.

REGs got a second wind of development in 120 A.R. when rumors started spreading among the corporations about the possible expansion of the United Governments onto the surface. As of 132 A.R. REGs are the main power source for military, scientific and engineering drones with an extended mission on the Surface requiring them to be very far from outposts where using any kind of battery would be ineffective or impossible.

EXTRA:

Item Resource Name: reg_q
In game model: reg_q
Ground model: reg_q
Stack: none
Item Basic Value (PA, NT, SV, ST, RZ, YZ, GZ): 95000, 15000, 35000, 120000, 550, 25000, 1500
Identification Difficulty Challenge: 37
Unidentified Description: Before you is a rectangular block, made of or covered with some kind of thick, velvety material. This strange white device with four dark blue stripes and a yellow arm weighs a hell of a lot. Seriously, it's too heavy to be just 20 inches long.

And what's more: the name "Radioisotope Emissive Generators is printed on it (it seems right inside the cover), as well as the logo of the producer "Ishima Industries," some numbers, radiation hazard symbols and other things...
