The copper wire is a basic wire created out of Copper Ore. It has a moderate conductivity and can be used to transfer electricity with low voltage.
You need to plug the wires into its corresponding slots in various machines to get them to work. This copper wire is insulated so you will not be electrocuted when in contact (touching it). On the contrary, uninsulated wires are dangerous as they CAN shock you (about 5 shocks will kill you). Also note that water does not affect either uninsulated or insulated wires.
If installed, Electrical Expansion overwrites these recipes.
This wire has a resistance of 500 mΩ (milliOhm) and a Max amps of 1 kA (1000 Amps)
