The Ender Chest is a block which allows a player to store 27 items, much like a wooden chest. However, if two ender chests are placed in different places, the items will be accessible from both chests. The two chests share a storage area, so if an item is taken from one chest, it will disappear from the other chest as well.
While playing Survival Multiplayer, players will not share the same storage space within an ender chest. This can be used to prevent players from stealing valuables as they cannot access each other's items. This also means two players can each store items in the same ender chest.
If two ender chests are placed and two of an item was put in one, when the chest with the items in is opened, there will be one of the item in that chest and one of the same item in the other chests, acting as an image. This feature also works across the different worlds: Overworld, Nether, and the End. Whenever an ender chest is destroyed, it will only drop eight Obsidian. If a player breaks an ender chest using a Pickaxe enchanted with silk touch, it will drop as an ender chest instead of obsidian.
Due to the fact that any two ender chests in the same world share the same contents, two or more ender chests can be used as a "back pack". This can be done by placing one near one's base, loading it with items, and carrying a second ender chest with oneself, essentially increasing one's storage space by a chest's worth. Since update 1.11, the Shulker Box fits the purpose better since players are not restricted to one box unlike ender chests.
