it's the latter, the E-cap or E-clip only storres highly compressed
Minovsky particles that just need some additional outside-energy as a
catalyst for fusion into mega-particles, some earlier mobile suits
lacked the power to provide sufficeint energy for fusion thus were stuck
with watered-down beam-spray weapons or more conventional arms like
machine guns and bazookas...
