The Robocharger is a 2x2 entity that offers a charging post for robots by fashioning a tesla coil on top of an electric pole.

The Robocharger connects to other roboports if it is within their logistics area. It does not have a logistics area or construction area itself and can not hold robots or repair packs. However, it offers 10 charge ports for robots to use in passing.

UPDATE 1.2.0 - FACTORIO 0.17 SUPPORT

No functionality updates. Just support for Factorio 0.17

UPDATE 1.1.0 - ADDED RESEARCH

Robocharger is no longer enabled by default. It now requires research (120 red & green science) before being unlocked. Prerequisite for research is Construction Robotics, which is what unlocks the vanilla Roboport. Construction Robotics costs 100 red & green science.
