The uranium fuel cell can be burned in a nuclear reactor to produce heat, resulting in a used up uranium fuel cell. As fuel cells are a nuclear fuel source, they are treated differently from other types of fuel and cannot be used in other burner devices or in vehicles.

A fuel cell can run a single nuclear reactor for 200 seconds. Unlike with steam power, a uranium fuel cell will continue to burn no matter the power draw, so any heat energy not consumed is wasted.
