What are the differences in ingress portal shield types?

I have collected a few different types of shields, with different colours and of differing rarity.

I assume the rarer shield types are more powerful in some way but I can’t find any information on it.

Question : What different types of shield are available and what are the differences between them?

More detail, I currently have three shield types:

  • Green (Common)
  • Purple (Rare)
  • Pink (Very Rare)


When you select a shield to deploy in the Upgrade-menu, it actually shows you their different parameters (just like for resonators it shows how much the range would increase iff deployed).

The values for the shields are:

  • Common – MITIGATION 22(+6)
  • Rare – MITIGATION 22(+8)
  • Very Rare – MITIGATION 22(+10)

Of course it’s a different matter to figure out how those values relate to burst-absorption.
