The Multi-Functional Electric storage unit, or MFE, is a Tier 3 energy storage device. It is able to store up to 4,000,000 [[EU]]. It can accept up to 512 EU/t from its 5 input faces and output 512 EU/t from its output face. This is too strong for most machines however, so you need to transform it with an [[MV Transformer]] and [[LV Transformer]] before feeding it into machines or use a [[Transformer upgrade]].
Like all storage units, its output face is marked by a special texture, which usually faces the player when the block is placed. The direction of the output face can be changed by right-clicking with a Bronze [[Wrench]] onto any of the input faces of the block; normally, this will point the output face towards the player, but holding Shift while clicking will point the output face in the opposite direction. Be aware that right-clicking the MFE while pointing at its output face will dismantle it.
You can set the [[Redstone Behavior]] by clicking the redstone button on the top right of the GUI. The available options are:
* Nothing
* Emit if full
* Emit if partially filled
* Emit if partially filled or empty
* Emit if empty
* Do not output energy
* Do not output energy unless full
If the '''MFE''' is broken with a stone pickaxe or better, it will drop a [[Machine Block]], and any energy stored will be removed. If the '''MFE''' is dismantled with a wrench, it will always drop itself, and will retain 80% of the energy stored inside. (You do not need to enable lossless wrench mode).

'''This section is outdated.'''
This device can do it. Everything.
The ''MultiFunctionalElectric Transmitter'' is necessary for any big industrial workspace using cables and current. Why? Let me tell you of the amazing number of uses:
Any cable linked to the side faces of the ''MFE'' will transmit energy into it. The ''MFE'' itself will as well '''EMIT''' energy, through the top and bottom faces.
Even more, the ''MFE'' contains an integrated '''ENERGY STORAGE'''. Yes, that's right, it can effectively contain an amount of energy, comparable to '''60 [[RE_Battery|RE BATTERIES]]'''(or 10 [[Energy_Crystal|Energy Crystals]]).
The ''MFE'' will often not emit power if no power is requested of it (for instance, if it is just linked to a machine). However, it is possible to stop the ''MFE'' from emitting energy at all by powering it with redstone.
But even better: for the unbelievable case you managed to '''FULLY LOAD''' the ''MFE'', it will emit energy (ignoring redstone signals). This was done for the sake of preventing energy from getting wasted in uebercharged ''MFE'' 's.
Last but not least, the ''MFE'' can act as an energy up- & download station in vast networks. You can pop an empty battery(or an empty Energy Crystal) in the upper slot and it will become charged until it's full or the MFE is out of energy. As well, you can put charged batteries(and charged Energy Crystals)into the lower slot to load up the ''MFE'' 's storage.
That's technology, isn't it, HAYO!
