    I was just playing modded minecraft and was wondering what the best way to store energy is, preferably something cheap to make but holds lots of power. What do you guys use?

    Best method of storing energy. Cheap. Choose one.
    The best methods in modded MC of storing energy have to be the gregtech AESU/IDSU or the Electricraft Auroral battery. Both are stupidly expensive.

    What kind of power? If you're talking about RF then the energy cells really aren't that expensive. A nice thing about the Extra Utilities generators is that they hold the RF they generate(up to 500,000 I think).

    Speaking of, maybe @Strikingwolf would consider adding energy storage to E-Flux.

    I would store my power in the Mekanism Energy Cubes, if I ever wanted to be efficient about it. Usually I just steal Energy Cells from other people, though.

    Im using mekanism to transfer all my power to the desired type so i just need a centre point where i keep all of my power.

    Yeah. I may have taken a full Resonant Energy Cell from you. Not that we really need it ;)

    Tanks of lava. Railcraft's Iron Tanks will do - they have geometric progression of capacity/materials. You can convert energy into lava with TE Magma Crucible, and lava to energy with Magmatic Dynamo.

    Along with this, tanks of Buildcraft fuel also work.

    Don't forget the new Electricraft RF Battery. Holds over a trillion RF I think.

    Wow that auroral battery holds soooo much energy... 281.5 trillion joules! Im not sure but i think that RF:MJ is 10:1 so thats 28 trillion? Seems to good to be true though

    That's Rotary Craft joules, not MJ. But it is definitely more then triple a resonant energy cell.

    Funniest way to store MJ would be to search a nice little valley and use a floodgate to fill it with fuel.
    Perhaps you could build a little village in there first and have the church's bell tower loom over the fuel level.
    If ya need that stuff simply pull it out with a pump.

    Similar, but way simpler way: Nether. Lava is already there, if ya need that stuff simply pull it out with a pump.

    always thought that best way to store EU energy is a batteries/energy cells and other cells plus charger boxes, and EU converters to RF/MJ[DOUBLEPOST=1411472146][/DOUBLEPOST]U get a large buffer of energy in one barrel/chest

    EnderIO capacitor banks are a nice multiblock structure for storing lots of RF

    TE energy cells, or Mek energy cubes. Duh. They both seem pretty much the same to me except Mek cubes can transfer it to multiple energy types and instantly charge Powersuits. This seems like a silly question to me since you are already using Mekanism, the answer should be obvious.

    Oh, and I was able to confirm last night: Electricraft RF Battery holds 1.2 Trillion RF. Put in perspective, that's 24,000 resonant energy cells, in one block. Reika also made an unlimited RF cable to go with it.
