The ME Chest is a block added by Applied Energistics 2. ME Chests function by accessing a ME Storage Cell supplied to it via a single slot located in the GUI that appears if the top of the chest is right-clicked. The inventory of the cell (stored as data), can then be accessed by right-clicking the chest on any of the other sides of the block, assuming the device has power.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The ME Chest requires power to access the contents of a supplied ME Storage Cell. This can be accessed by one of two ways.

Externally[edit | edit source]

The ME Chest can be used as a standalone storage device by supplying power (such as EU, MJ, or RF) directly to the block. This will allow the internal inventory of a supplied ME Storage Cell to be accessed via the GUI, and subsequently items can be injected into the block to store them; however, items cannot be extracted via conventional methods.

ME Networked[edit | edit source]

The other method to utilise a ME Chest is by connecting the block to an existing ME Network. Whilst the device is attached to an ME Network, it will draw 1AE/t, and subsequently the inventory of the supplied ME Storage Cell will be accessible to other devices attached to the same channel of the ME Network.

Compatible Storage Cells[edit | edit source]

The ME Chest requires ME Storage Cells to function. Compatible cells added by Applied Energistics 2 include the 1k ME Storage Cell, 4k ME Storage Cell, 16k ME Storage Cell and 64k ME Storage Cell.
