Power Units

Stargate Power Units allow stargates to be run from the power systems of other mods instead of requiring naquadah.

The Power Unit should be installed below the stargate, under the base block or one of the bottom row of ring blocks. It will take some time to charge up. Right-click to open a GUI showing the current charge level.

Energy stored in a Power Unit cannot be drained out. However, it retains its charge when picked up, so you can move it from one place to another without losing energy.

Very long-range connections may require energy exceeding the maximum capacity of a single power unit. To accommodate this, you can install multiple power units under the gate. There is room for up to 5 units, although you shouldn't need more than 3 under most conceivable circumstances.

IC2 Stargate Power Unit

This power unit is available when IndustrialCraft 2 is installed. It contains a capacitor bank to provide the large burst of energy needed to establish a stargate connection. It can be connected to a supply of unlimited voltage and holds up to 1,000,000 EU.

RF Stargate Power Unit

This power unit is available when a mod providing RF power is installed, and allows a stargate to be run on Redstone Flux. It can hold up to 4,000,000 RF.

The recipe for this block depends on whether Thermal Expansion is installed. If it is, the recipe uses items from Thermal Expansion; otherwise, an alternative recipe using vanilla items is provided instead.
