Summary0001684: Batbox/CESU/MFE/MFSU doesn't update comparators when charged/discharged via cables
DescriptionBatbox/CESU/MFE/MFSU doesn't update comparators when charged/discharged via cables, but do update them when being charged/discharged with an item including batteries, batterypacks and the debug item.
Steps To Reproduce- Place down your (empty) energy storage of choice
- Put a comparator facing away from it and attach a piece of redstone
- Put an energy item inside
- Watch the signal strength increase as it charges from the item
- Remove the item and place another (empty) energy storage block nearby
  * Alternatively place a comparator on the second block as well
- Connect them with cables to the first will discharge into the second
- The signal from the comparator will not change as the block empties
  * Same will be true for second comparator if placed
Additional InformationThis was tested with only IC2 and NEI present and with vanilla comparators
TagsNo tags attached.

They will update, but you have to explicitly force block updates when using cables. It's always "worked" like this.

Can confirm Choco's statement: its silly, but its why I always stack MFSUs in sequence and do my redstone logic based the internal redstone signals they provide. If I have four MFSUs, and only the top one is empty, then my MFSU bank is approximately 75% full (Doesn't require block updates).

Lots of mods provide block-update-blocks that you can trigger on a timer (once per second or something will have zero performance impact)
