Energy Cubes are a method of storing energy and can be connected with any transmission means carrying Universal Electricity, BuildCraft or Industrial Craft 2 energy.
all energy cubes accept input from all sides marked green, output power is given by the side marked with a black square. Energy Coming in is stored in universal electricity form and then can be sent out as any of the three energy types depending on what form of energy transmission is connected(for example Build Craft Energy Transport Pipes to send Buildcraft Power).
The ability to input, convert and output all 3 types of power allow for energy cubes to serve as an incredibly simple to use converter as it is possible to supply all three power sources into the cube at once with the combined energy traveling out of the cubes into any of the three supported energy types.
When broken, their stored energy and inventory are saved allowing for easy transportation, whilst in the players inventory holding shift will show extra information such as output voltage, current energy stored and whether items are stored in it's inventory.
The Basic Energy Cube is the lowest tier of energy storage. It can store up to 2MJ and has an output voltage of 120V. It can be identified by its dark green frame.
The Advanced Energy Cube is the second tier of energy storage. It can store up to 8MJ and has an output voltage of 240V. It can be identified by it's red frame.
The Elite Energy Cube is the third tier of energy storage. It can store up to 32MJ and has an output voltage of 240V. It can be identified by its blue frame.
The Ultimate Energy Cube is the fourth and final tier of energy storage. It can store up to 128MJ and has an output voltage of 480V. It can be identified by its black frame.

GUI and I/OEditThe GUI of the Energy Cube is simple to use.
The - input box can house a Battery/device with power and the battery or other device with power in it, such as power armour, can provide power to the cube.
Whereas the + output box is used to provide power to a portable power storage/usage device.
The I/O of the Energy Cube are fairly simple to work out too.
Any Green side of the cube are inputs for power sources and the red side is an output.
