All Emergency Power Cell Locations in Starfield

In Starfield, after arriving at the Argos Extractors Mining Outpost on Vectera and speaking to Supervisor Lin, you’ll discover that Barrett was taken captive by pirates, and you’re their only hope of finding him again. However, no one knows precisely where he is located, so you’ll have to repair a comms computer to find his whereabouts. To do this, you need to get your hands on some power cells to reboot the computer. To learn more, continue reading to discover where to find emergency power cells for the Back to Vectera quest in Starfield.

Emergency Power Cell Locations in Starfield

There are multiple spots where you can find emergency power cells for the Back to Vectera mission, with the locations below outlining where I found mine:

  1. Inside the comms computer building, on a shelf in the first room.
  2. On a table near the robot next to Supervisor Lin.
  3. On the other side of Lin, next to the storage crates and containers.

You can also find some throughout your travels in Starfield or by asking Supervisor Lin for a power cell.

  • Starfield Power Cell One
  • Starfield Power Cell Two
  • Starfield Power Cell Three

Once you have all three power cells, head inside the comms computer building marked with the quest marker by turning on the switch outside the doors, followed by the switch inside the hallway. After entering the building, run through the first two rooms and turn right to find three power receptacles before placing your emergency power cells inside. Doing this restarts the comms computer, allowing you to enter the final room and access the files telling you Barrett’s location.

After learning Barrett’s location, you’ll be one step closer to completing the Back to Vectera mission.
