Generators are used to either supply direct power to machines or charge RE Batteries. The basic Generators operate on conventional fuel, which includes most wooden items, Charcoal, Coal, certain plants, and scrap.

While costly in terms of fuel, basic generators are also one of the most mobile power sources, and don't suffer the drawbacks of requiring sunlight, water, lava, or proper wind as the case is with the other types of generators.

A generator may be broken with a stone pickaxe or better, or dismantled with a wrench. However, it will lose all its "burning heat" (similar to a furnace) and its internal storage.

Usage

Place one of the compatible fuels (listed below) in the lower slot. The generator will output power at a rate of 10 EU/t. You can also charge RE Batteries by placing them in the top slot.

Storage: 4000 EU

Output: A varying amount of EU (depending on fuel source, see below) at a rate of 10 EU/t. Packet size is 10 EU as well.

If you find that you need to burn wood for power it is very advantageous to turn them into scaffolding instead of charcoal.

Burn 8 logs by turning it into charcoal: 8 logs => 8 charcoal x 4000EU/charcoal - 390EU/charcoal = 28,880EU Burn 8 logs by turning it into scaffolding: 8 logs => ~113 scaffolds x 750 = ~85,333EU

Turning the logs into Scaffolding yields nearly triple the EU of charcoal.

Interaction with other mods

(Almost) any furnace fuel from any mod can be used in a Generator, at the conversion rate of

  • (No. of Smelts in a stone furnace) x 500 EU; or
  • Fuel Value x 2.5 EU

For example,

  • Peat (Forestry) can smelt 2x as long as Coal in a furnace. Hence, it produces 16 x 500 EU = 8000 EU.
  • Coal Coke (Railcraft) has a heat value of 6400. Hence it produces 6400 x 2.5 EU = 16 000 EU.

HAYO

We lied to you, sorry. We told you that using Batteries in Electric Furnaces wouldn't cause any pollution.

Now, the cake no-pollution-thingy was a lie. Yes, Electric Furnaces don't burn stuff and damage our dear Earth, but YOU DO! Yes! By using this Generator, you can recharge the T500-Rechargeable Energy Storation Unit unlimitedly. But in redo the Generator will need something it can burn to create this energy the RE Battery needs.

We know, you must feel terrible right now, being the cause for global warming and all this stuff. But we can help you, HAYO!

History
