After anchoring a POS in empire or in 0.0, do the shields need to be charged or are they fully charged after adding the fuel?

Thank you

It's a low priority known bug (i.e. one they can't figure out how to fix). Bring a few ospreys fit for max repair and some energy fit BS and heal it up. It'll be ok after that.

This is what you have to do to turn them on. Once they are up, then no, they are not fully charged right off the bat. I forget exactly where it starts at, but I believe it's 50%. So they will at least be partially charged.

EDIT: It will charge itself up although it takes a while(a day or two i think), you can do what Letrange says above and bring in some shield reppers if you want to get it to 100% right away.

When you anchor a POS, the shield starts at 50% and slowly charges to 100%. When you enter a password and finish putting the POS online the forcefield activates.

Well I launched my POS in hi sec today, before activating the shield I decided to fill the fuel and stront bay full, then I put the pw in and seemed to enable the shields at 100%, I don't know if the bug has been fixed, or if it is the sequence in which I launced it, or maybe I was just lucky lol. Maybe someone can try the same thing and report their findings.

Nix that last post. My appologies, I must have looked at the manage page before I enabled shields and everything was 100% (armor, structure) My shields were indeed 50% and coming up slowly.

It's not a bug by the way, it's by design so that POS's being anchored offensively are less effective than established POS's if stomped on quickly. What WAS a bug was when some towers would reset to 50% every downtime for a few months, that was fixed a while back though.
