New Item/Block of IndustrialCraft².


Experimental-Only Content: This information has been updated to the v2.X version of IC².


The Electric Wrench functions identically to the Bronze Wrench, but is powered by an internal reservoir of EU. Thus, it will never wear out, just like other electric tools.

It can be charged in a BatBox or other energy storage device, as well as by a battery. Just remember to switch to another item before clicking on your energy storage device or you may accidentally wrench it, losing (some of) that precious EU!

Electric Wrench modes

Prior to IC2 v2.3.222, the Electric Wrench had two modes, toggled by holding down the mode switch key (default M) and right-clicking.

  • Lossless Mode Disabled: Low power usage, same chance to break machines as using a Bronze Wrench (~20%). This is the default mode.
  • Lossless Mode Enabled: High power usage, about 9000 EU/use, with a 0% chance to break machines. Wearing a charged BatPack or LapPack is advised; however, there is now no need to worry about random machine blocks popping out!! HAYO!!

Starting with IC2 v2.3.222, wrench failure has been removed, so the Electric Wrench no longer has an alternate mode to toggle.
