Copper is by far one of the most widely used metals in IC2, thanks to the frequency of Copper Cables, Electronic Circuits, and normal and dense copper plates used in crafting recipes. Nearly every mod item uses copper either directly or as a subcomponent, with the exception of things like the Iron Furnace and the MFE.
Crafting-wise, copper ingots are used mostly for blocks to cut into plates more quickly, but also for the Induction Furnace.
Unsmelted copper can also be mixed with tin in a 3:1 ratio to produce Bronze, another useful metal.
It's small, brown and shiny!
Yes, you are RIGHT, it's Copper!
But not that copper, you're thinking about... It's the best Copper in this WORLD!
