Beam Weapons: Simple Action?

Saw it on the batter information part, said changing/reloading was a Simple Action, yet no such action is in core?
Typo or am I missing something?

I'm pretty sure it is a typo

I'm pretty sure it is a typo and meant to be a Quick Action. A search of the PDF reveals the only other instance of "simple action" is directly under Quick Action on the chapter title page.

I thought so too. I find the whole battery a lil strange.
If I understood it right. You get a Pulsar for Moderate cost, which comes with Inbuilt Safety and Smartlink modifiers. The pulsar has two batteries in it at the same time, one standard, one nuclear. The standard battery is solid for 100 shots in this case, and when not used, it is slowly recharged by the nuclear battery, fully up after 5hrs (I assumed you can divide hundred by five to get ammo per hour ratio?)

If I don't want to wait five hours, I can swap the Standard Battery as a quick action and instantly get back to 100 shots.
