The Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (also known as RTG) is a generator that is fueled by placing Pellets of RTG Fuel inside. The pellets will not get used up, making the RTG a source of infinite EU, similar to a Solar Panel. However, they can only generate up to 32 EU/t, and the pellets cost a very high amount of resources to craft. The RTG has 6 slots for pellets, and the amount of EU produced increases exponentially as more pellets are added.

Trivia

- Although the RTG uses radioactive Plutonium as fuel and has a Reactor Chamber in its recipe, it does not emit any radiation at all, meaning it is safe to use near your workshop.

HAYO

The SupahSafe(TM) Radio-Electric Solid-State Sub-Atomic Power Generator will generate Electricity from Atomic Decay(TM)!

Now you may complain about its low energy output and high material costs, BUT DID YOU NOTICE THE FUEL LASTS VIRTUALLY FOREVER?

Even better: thanks to the Fuel Disk's sturdy casing and design it can be injected and ejected like a CD! HAYO!

DISCLAIMER: SupahSafe(TM) is not responsible for heavy radiation poisoning caused by eating RTG Fuel.
