Volts are small white pickups dropped by Enemies when they are destroyed.

Boss phases also drop them - either gradually until they are destroyed, all at once when they are destroyed, or both (depending on the boss)

Collecting them allows you to upgrade your primary weapon up to a maximum of Level 3 (starting at Level 0). Higher reinforcement levels require more Volts.

The amount of Volts an enemy spawns is indicative of how much progress is gained towards spawning the next Battery. See Battery#Spawning_algorithm.
