Best components to buy from Lenora's Garage?

I noticed a lot of components in the shop, are differently named but all cost like 840 chips (or something close) do they all give out the same XP based on price? (this isn't to be confused with combining it with multipliers)

What components work best with upgrading accessories and what components work best with upgrading weapons?

I prefer to buy, I think, Super Conductors. I'm sure someone better at upgrading weapons/accessories can help you out better.

The best EXP/Gil ratio items are:
Ultracompact Reactor 40,000/50,000 0.8 E/G
Particle Accelerator 4,800/10,000 0.48 E/G
Supercharger 774/1,600 0.484 E/G
Superconductor 400/840 0.476 E/G

The first two are from the R&D Depot, you gain access to it by completing Mission 7. The list is sorted by Gil tiers.

Er, you can't buy Superchargers. I think he means Perfect Conductors, which is:

Perfect Conductor 751/1600 0.469 E/G

Slightly worse than Superconductors, but they are rank 8 instead of rank 6, so they have less exp loss on higher rank items. Not sure if it puts it over the top of Superconductors though.

Thanks for that correction. The E/G for that component is 0.469.

Crankshafts I believe. I could be wrong, but if my memory serves me right. Yeah, Crankshafts.
