  • May have limited range, including touch only.
  • May be limited to how much one can absorb.
    • Overloading: Too much power could result in incapacitation or death.
    • Overuse: Using more power than stored may exhaust the user after expending too much energy.
    • Under Loading: User may not be in a position to absorb power for some time, causing them to deplete their power supply. Attackers who know of the weakness may hide or wait until the absorber has little or no energy left and take them to a secure location when they are weakened.
