The BatBox is the most basic of several energy storage devices in Industrial Craft. Its name is a contraction of 'Battery Box'.

Energy (EU)

· Storage

The BatBox is able to store 40,000 EU within (equivalent to 10 Coal in a Generator).

· Input

The BatBox is able to accept a maximum packet size of 32 EU/t from each of the 5 input faces. Bigger EU packets will cause a BatBox to explode, losing all the energy stored.

· Output

The BatBox is able to output 32 EU/t

Uses

They are useful for initial energy storage, and later on, backup power for a few machines. The BatBox can charge most energy storage devices. It is also very useful to implement BatBoxes to store power from a Generator and also as a method of extending the reach of your cables. A typical starter setup of Industrial devices involves a natural generator (such as a Windmill or Solar Panel) feeding into a BatBox with a row of Copper Cable along the front of the BatBox which feeds into any side of your Macerator, Electric Furnace, etc. (in essence, a T-shaped network). Note that the BatBox resets the cable length energy loss calculations, so they work well to extend your power network; using up to four Insulated Copper Cables from the Generator to the BatBox and up to four segments away from your BatBox to all your devices without losing any energy. Likewise, they can very easily be daisy chained to extend your storage capabilities. 

Faces

Like all storage units its output face is marked by a special texture, a small orange dot, which usually faces the player when the block is placed. The direction of the output face can be changed by right-clicking with a Wrench onto any of the input faces of the block; normally, this will point the output face towards the player, but holding Shift while clicking will point the output face in the opposite direction. Be aware that right-clicking the BatBox while pointing at its output face will dismantle it, while right-clicking anywhere else will change the side of the output.

Redstone Interaction

Applying a Redstone signal to the BatBox will make it stop emitting power from the output face if the redstone behaviour option is set to do not output energy.
