Copper cables are Tier 1, the most common cable tier. They are only capable of handling Low Voltage (up to 32 EU-p) (up to 128 EU-p on Experimental builds), however, they suffer the smallest distance-related energy losses out of all the conventional cables, with insulated copper cables having even less energy losses.
They are also used in the creation of Electronic Circuits.
(OLD)If you move too close to the uninsulated copper cable you may get an electric shock which does damage to the player so it's best to insulate your cables.
- This feature seems to be disabled in Experimental versions of IC2 (Test made in 2_2.0.277-experimental)
