Why would I ever want to build these?

For a standard capacity of 30, I could use:

A) 3xBattery1, using 3 space, 4 mass and costing 15/30/60
B) 2xBattery2, using 4 space, 4 mass and costing 14/30/60
C) 1xBattery3, using 4 space, 5 mass and costing 12/25/50

So Battery3 gives me a tiny saving in cost, at the expense of using more space and mass, and needing a 2x2 block of adjacent spaces. So far as I can see, until I've researched Battery4, I'm much better just sticking Battery1s in any little gaps I have. Or does capacity add up in a non-linear fashion?

Weeble.

Here are the detailed breakdowns of the battery stats, at the end of the day its best to fully upgrade to level4 obviously. Battery2 is a nice choice for bigger hulls if you haven't got lvl4's yet (fast charge rate - low cost). Level1 batteries can still be useful especially if your ship almost full with just a few single pods left.

battery1 (one pod)
mass=2
charge rate=2
cost=20,10,5
max charge=10

battery2 (two pods)
mass=4
charge rate=5
cost=30,15,7
max charge=15

battery3 (four pods)
mass=5
charge rate=7
cost=50,25,12
max charge=30
