I heard some people use a term "power feed". What does that mean?

Power-feed refers to the act of offering a feeder(e.g. a cricket/ roach) to a scorpion at the shortest possible interval (e.g. one feeder after another) untill the scorpion is full. Some keepers does this for juvenile/ sub-adult scorpions so that the scorpion may have shorter molting intervals and thus, able to attain adulthood at a faster rate.

It's also often done alongside keeping the juveniles at the hotter range of exceptable temperatures to speed up their metabolism. Look up Hot Box on here.
