The Multi-Functional Electric storage unit, or MFE, is a Tier 2 energy storage device. One MFE is the equivalent of 15 BatBoxes. It is able to store up to 600,000 EU and can accept a maximum power of 128 EU/t from any of its 5 input faces. It can also emit a current of 128 EU/t from its output face, meaning all first tier machines will explode if the output power is not converted through a LV Transformer. Note that the MFE unit will not explode if it reaches its storage capacity. The same applies to the MFS Unit and the BatBox.
Like all storage units, its output face is marked by a special texture (A circle form), which usually faces the player when the block is placed. The direction of the output face can be changed by right-clicking with a bronze 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 MFE Unit while pointing at its output face will dismantle it.
When a MFE is right clicked with an Energy Sensor Kit, it will give you an Energy Sensor Location Card, which can be used in the Industrial Information Panel to get constant info about that specific MFE.
Note that applying a Redstone signal to the MFE Unit will make it stop emitting power from the output face.
When redstone is placed in the bottom slot of the MFE, the redstone is burned and used as power for the MFE.
The total EMC cost of an MFE is 39,168. Warning: Copper cables and LV Machines cannot handle medium voltage current. Do not try to hook them up directly to the MFE Unit. Use an LV Transformer (and make sure it's facing the right way) or else the machines will explode (the explosion is not as powerful as a creeper explosion, and most likely won't destroy the machines around it, but will still destroy wires and other blocks).
