Charged with Light mods continue to offer players powerful builds in Destiny 2. This set of Combat Style mods are spread across a few elemental types and focus on making players Charged with Light and then allowing them to gain buffs by consuming the charges. Here are all the Charged with Light mods in Destiny 2 and how to get them.
All Charged with Light mods
There are over 30 Charged with Light mods to unlock in Destiny 2. The way these mods work is that one type of mod gives you a stack of Charged with Light and another will consume that stack to give you a buff.
Arc Charged with Light mods also include a bonus buff which actives when at least one other Arc Charged with Light mod is being used. Void Charged with Light mods have a stat penality, but are cheaper comparatively. Solar mods have no bonuses or penalties.
Charged with Light mods also synergize with the other Combat Style mods. Have the following guides handy as you construct your new builds:

How to get Charged with Light mods
The only way to get Charged with Light mods is to buy them from Ada-1 when she sells them. As of Season 17, these mods are not available from other activities or reward packages. If you want to collect them all, you’ll need to rely on Ada to sell them.
Be sure to use online services like Destiny Item Manager or various Twitter users to know when Ada-1 is selling a mod you might need.
Keep in mind that some of the Charged with Light mods stack with one another, boosting the effects. Collecting all of the Charged with Light mods will be beneficial to many end-game builds, especially if you’re looking to clear raids or GM Nightfalls.
