    I got a couple of solars and im using the electrical engines to charge redstone energy cells.
    On the left side of the electrical engine is the slot for Circuits. But in the middle is something additional.
    Looks like a vent/turbine/pump or something - but i cant figure out the usage.

    Hard to find information about that - can you help me with that?

    The vent-looking slot doesn't do anything. The slot under it is for batteries.

    Okey thanks. Never tried to power an engine with batterys ;)

    I sometimes use an electrical engine + my batpack to power fillers in the early game before I get redstone cells

    I've been seeing the Mindcrack people use Heating Vents (that are normally used in Nuclear Reactors) in that slot. I dunno if it's actually doing anything or not, as I have not tested it myself, but it might be worth it to try that out.

    Mayhaps...

    No sources I have been able to find have mentioned that usage, but on the other hand it would be weird to have a slot with no use...

    will test later

    Tested it. Two engines side by side toggled at the same time none of the vents effect it. And as a side

    You can put just about anything in that slot it seems only a battery actually does anything though.

    This may shed some light on the electrical engine upgrades :D

    Except it doesn't answer anything... the question was the slot above the battery...

    Then you can't have watched the video it says so at 00:35 into the video :rolleyes:

    Video just says that it does nothing. So, yeah.

    Yep it's not even a slot it just appears as though it is.

    If I recall correctly, that slot does not do anything, and the symbol is the symbol for "alternating current". Which is a little funny seeing that the system seems to be more of a direct current system, since you can power devices with batteries. I guess you could have an inverter built into all the devices, or just accept that it's a game and not real life... =P
