The Magtube is a faster version of the Pneumatic Tube which allows for items to be transported faster. However, to use the Magtube, Accelerators are necessary for the Magtube to function. To power these Accelerators, a source of Blulectric Power is necessary. This means that Magtubes are considerably more expensive without even considering their crafting recipe (which requires a Diamond Drawplate for the Fine Copper Wire) but they allow items to be transported at an astonishing rate of 1 block per tick, meaning that items can travel at a rate of 20 blocks per second. Magtube lines are infinitely expandable so long as there is an Accelerator at the beginning and end of the line to accelerate and decelerate the items, respectively.
Items in a Magtube must be decelerated and then placed into a system of Pneumatic Tubes or Redstone Tubes for transport into a chest or other inventory, as Magtubes cannot connect directly to chests or other inventories nor deposit items into them.
