Dean's Electronics is a book written for amateur electricians in the 21st century. On the book's cover, there is the picture of a light bulb in a circle lying atop various electrical diagrams. People used this book for learning the field of electronics and repairing electrical equipment. These books are used in the Vault-Tec Vaults.

An image of this book is copied onto a slide for the Vault Dweller's Survival Guide. The identifying number is VDSG Plate #138-29.




Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics

Copies of Dean's Electronics are very easy to come by, and the game helpfully provides a few at certain Repair check locations. Reading them will boost your Repair skill a little, until you reach 92%. At that point, they will have no further effect.

Fallout 3

When the player's character reads the book, the repair skill increases by one point. If the player has chosen Comprehension, the repair skill increases by two points.
