I never took electric physics in college, so this section from the blue alloy wire article confused me.
Blue Alloy Wire has a limit on packet size at approximately 107.4 volts...Blue Alloy Wire is also lossy, having a resistance of 0.02 ohms per block. Over long distances, this can result in large power losses, especially if high amperes are flowing the wire. To minimize this losses it's recommended to use more wires instead of only one.
What exactly does this mean? How long is a "long distance"? Why does having more wires help? Does daisy changing battery boxes help like in Industrial craft?
Any tips would be appreciated.
