Redstone Torches are items crafted from one Redstone Dust and one wooden Stick. When placed on its own, it appears as a glowing red torch, although noticeably fainter than a normal Torch (it can't melt Ice or prevent mob spawning). Additionally, it does not have the usual fire animation. It is used as an endless power source, or as an inverter within redstone circuits.

Uses

A redstone torch can provide a power source for "wires". Wires in turn are used to operate doors, pistons, or any redstone-effected block from a distance. The torch can power the wire for a length of 15 blocks, and takes one redstone tick (two game ticks or 0.1 seconds) for power to flow through it.

A redstone torch will weakly power any block it touches (except whatever it's attached to) and can strongly power any solid block above itself. It acts as an inverter, or NOT-gate (and is labeled as such in the game's source code), in redstone circuits, and turns off when the block it is attached to gets powered.
