Would a feruchemist (either a soulbearer or full feruchemist) who had ended up in Roshar and bonded a spren to become a radiant, then be able to store stormlight into a nicrosilmind?

That is, would they be able to store stormlight in a nicrosilmind and use that rather than carry spheres or gemstones around with them everywhere they went?

Is a nicrosil mind capable of doing this or would it simply store the ability to use stormlight, not the stormlight itself?

Moving this to Cosmere discussion as it deals with Mistborn as well as Stormlight Archive.

To answer the question: As far as we know canonically you would only be able to store the ability to use it.

I agree that it seems like they would only be able to store the ability to use stormlight and not stormlight itself. That being said, I think that there are a number of synergies between being a surge binder and being a feruchemist.

1) Storing healing. A surgebinder/feruchemist should be able to have nearly as much health available as a double gold twinborn. They can effectively convert stormlight into healing. A gold metal mind is a much more stable storage of health than stormlight infused gemstones.

2) Storing breath. It isn't clear how helpful this is, but I'm sure there is something clever that could be done here. Perhaps as a matter of speculation, could stormlight be stored in a cadium mind?

3) Depending on the passive effects of stormlight is it also possible to store physical strength, warmth, wakefulness, or energy? (Could stormlight be stored in a bendalloy mind?)

4) Storing the ability to use stormlight might be useful. What does it mean to be a stronger surgebinder, or more powerfully be able to take in stormlight? A surgebinder is going to have long stretches of time that they can store their ability, and could release it in large burst when needed. I have a theory that one of the effects of being a more powerful practitioner is that you gain an intuitive use of its powers (this theory is based on the 6th heightening.) So a feruchemist(nicrosil ferring)/surgebinder might be able to wield powers and intuitively understand surgebinding that other surgebinders can't.

5)What about the synergy of surges and feruchemy?
-Spiritual adhesion as a source for storing connection
-Soulcasting to make unlimited and rare metalminds
