Usage[edit]

Ender chests can be opened by pressing use. If a solid block is placed above an ender chest, it cannot open.

Ender chests can be used like chests, except all ender chests in the world are interconnected, including in different dimensions. The ender chest's inventory is also separate for each player; consequently, items stored in an ender chest cannot be seen or taken by other players.

Ender chests contain 27 slots for storage and can be placed next to other ender chests without joining; they cannot be combined into double chests.

Ender chests cannot be moved by pistons and do not interact with hoppers, droppers, or comparators.

Ender chests emit a light level of 7.

History[edit]

Java Edition
1.3.112w21aEnder Chest Revision 1.png Added ender chests.
Ender chests currently share the same inventory for all players on a server. Jeb stated that this would be changed to a separate inventory for every player in snapshot 12w24a.[1]
Ender chests are based on a suggestion thread on Reddit.[2][3] This idea was previously made into a mod by Ecu and ChickenBones.[4]
In response to some users' feelings on the functionality of ender chests, Jeb plans to test a feature he has yet to specify in relation to them.[5]

Trivia[edit]

  • An ender chest's particles exist only in the 1 block radius around the chest, so if the chest is placed next to a wall its particles are not seen on the other side.
  • Unlike chests, changes to an ender chest's name are not reflected in its inventory GUI.
  • Unlike chests, when broken, it does not drop the items inside it, due to the fact that the items aren't only in that chest.
  • If all ender chests are broken, the items inside are inaccessible until a new ender chest is placed.
  • Ender chests render as a full block when in the inventory, but not when placed.‌[Bedrock Edition only][6]
