I've seen a lot people don't know what to do with damaged equipments. So I'm gonna tell you a secret that makes you gonna crazy unto scavenge hunt on every wreck you find.

YOU CAN REPAIR EQUIPMENTS WITH ENHANCEMENT ITEMS

That's right, you actually can repair equipments with enhancement items in YOUR CARGO HOLD. I discovered this feature a while ago. I don't remember George have introduced this mechanic, but I recall it already in game few years back because I seen it on source code; though at that time I'm didn't think it was working. This mechanic is really useful to loot damaged item and sell them high after repaired or you can just use it if it was better than your current equipment. In fact, it is even far more cheaper than repairing item in manufacturing plant.

How to do it? Well you must have right enhancement items and of course a damaged equipments. Then {U}se the enhancement. You might not noticed at first glance, but see a tab there on dockscreen?

Click on it or simply press {Tab}. It will show list of damaged equipment in your cargo based on what enhancement you have. Just use it on equipment, then you will have your equipment repaired instantly. Armor does have chance to fail or damage, but shield and weapon don't have. So you can repair it without worry (I have ticketed this as balance issue here, but for now you can exploit as you want).

Here the list of usable items that you can use to repair damaged equipments:

1. Armor
- armor repair paste: repair armor up to level 5
- small armor patch: repair armor up to level 5
- large armor patch: repair armor up to level 7
- repairing nanos: repair armor up to level 7
- light armor repair kit: repair armor up to level 9
- medium armor repair kit: repair armor up to level 10
- heavy armor repair kit: repair armor up to level 10

2. Shield
- silicarb field crystal: repair shield up to level 5
- shield enhancement ROM: repair shield up to level 6
- Hiro's shield optimizer: repair shield up to level 6
- diamond field crystal: repair shield up to level 9
- molbidium field crystal: repair shield up to level 10

3. Weapon
- laser amplifier: repair laser weapon
- kinetic upgrade: repair kinetic weapon
- weapon optimizer ROM: repair weapon up to level 6
- particle source upgrade: repair particle weapon
- weapon efficiency ROM: repair weapon up to level 10
- hexagene booster: repair blast weapon
- ion power capacitor: repair ion weapon
- tritium injector: repair thermo weapon

4. Other
- longzhu sphere: repair energy shield and energy weapon up to level 10

To clarify: items that are in armor list is actually armor repair items. However, you still able to apply enhancement on armor in cargo; even if it is damaged. Same goes to shield and weapon, you can enhance them without installing.
