|First Appearance||Beta 1.3|
|Type of Block||Solid Block|
|Data Values||Hex: 5E|
A repeater extends a powered redstone current by fifteen blocks. The repeater can delay this current by up to four tenths of a second. Repeaters do not interact with any blocks adjacent to it, excluding the input and output.
If a powered repeater directs current into an unlit repeater, a repeater lock occurs. When this effect happens, the powered repeater will remain permanently powered. Even if the input is destroyed, it will have no effect on the repeater. This can be fixed by removing the repeater. This is what a repeater does.

- Prior to beta 1.6, the particles generated when the block was destroyed looked like those of a pumpkin .
- In the coding, it is referenced as "diode", a semiconductor device with two terminals (a cathode and anode), typically allowing the flow of current in one direction only.
- The reason why the Redstone Torches appear shorter is because the torches are actually off-set from their y-axis.
