Energy Leech

Wondrous item, rare

An energy leech looks like a spool of insulated wire set between a pair of round magnetic disks. The spool has a small red button at one end. The device is typically used by unsavory or unscrupulous individuals to drain charges from an adversary’s technology. To use the device, one magnet is placed on the device (typically near where the device stores its charges) while the other end is attached to a larger object or structure. When the button on the spool is depressed, a low energy field begins draining charges from the attached device at a rate of one charge per 10 minutes.

Charges drained are simply dissipated and lost; they cannot be transferred from one device to another with an energy leech. This device is typically used to drain weapons or charges from vehicles so as to render them temporarily nonfunctional. Attaching and activating the device is an action. It can be removed with a DC 15 Dexterity check with thieves’ tools, by a DC 15 Strength check, or by dealing 5 points of slashing damage. The leech is AC 17.
