Question from Penance22
Could I be able to use the workbench combined with the perk that gives you better recycling. Can you recycle Alien blaster energy cells?

Nope. Alien Power Cells are intended to be the only limited ammo in the game(anything else you can acquire more of legitimately), but there is the reverse pickpocket/ammo generation trick. Save before attempting this just as you would regular pickpocketing.
1: Pickpocket a low-tier generic NPC such as a Fiend or a settler, but *GIVE* them your Alien Blaster and a single Alien Power Cell.
2: When successful, fast travel out of the area.
3: Return and they should have the Alien Blaster equipped, as well as more ammo in their inventory.
4: Kill them to your gun back and the extra ammo that was added to theri inventory.
You should also know though, the Alien Blaster also presents a unique problem for playing the game other than its limited ammo. It has a 100% critical hit chance by default. This means everything you kill with it has a 100% chance of leaving behin an ash pile. Trouble is, ash piles never go away. That means more for the game's engine to process when you enter an area. Now, at first this doesn't seem bad. But when the filesize of your save increases enough, this will cause performance issues such as crashing the game. Hopefully that won't happen, but the chances are good if you create a lot of as(or goo) piles.
