Blaster power packs,[1] or energy packs[2] were energy storage devices which supplied power to a blaster. During their funerals, fallen members of the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry had power packs drained in their honor.[1] During the Battle of Hoth[2] in 3 ABY,[3] Private Emon Kref used an A295 blaster rifle with a blaster power pack which had a tendency to fall out and so had to be held on with tape.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Blaster power packs first appeared in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1] They were later identified as energy packs in the short story "Beyond Hope," written by Michael Moreci and released as part of the 2020 short story collection From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back.[2]
