I know, it's a long time coming. Sorry it's short, but I only have 65gb on my windows partition, and I am waiting for my new USB Hub so I can have my mouse, hardrive, and controller plugged in. Anyway, it's pretty straight forward. You go up to one of these devices (device is from halo 2 and is a placeholder) with a battery based weapon, and you will hear it hum as it recharges. If the weapon gets to 100%, it then overheats and you will be unable to fire it until you move away from the recharge station.
