What you will need is a gum wrapper and a "AA" or a "AAA" battery

Step 1: Prepping

Place the negative part of the battery on the metallic part of the wrapper.

Step 2: The Fire!

Cover the top part of the battery and hold it there with something other than your hand! You will burn yourself, The FIRE!

*EDIT*

You can tear the middle of it slightly so the heat would be concentrated to the middle where the paper would burn. Just a helpful tip, thanks for all the views too!

I have had a 9v battery catch my backpack on fire ruining dozens of relic hunting maps after it connected with some very thin hanging camping wire. I punched my prankster of a friend in his neck thinking he did it. Ooops
<p>Being in a situation like that I probably would have too without thinking, sorry about your maps bud.</p>
<p>if you have no gum just get some steel wool [pot scrubber] and put some tinder on top of it,then get a 9 volt battery and touch on the steel wool and&quot;hey presto&quot; you have a fire!!</p>
It's better with a 9v because you can just drop the wrapper on it.
<p>Didn't see yours before I posted mine! And yes, it is &quot;that easy&quot;! Great survival trick!</p>
Is it just that easy?
<p>Sorry for the delay, but yes it is &quot;just that easy&quot;!</p>
<p>:3 </p>
Does it really work? I would love to try :-)
<p>Yes, I just didn't want to start a fire inside, and if I did it outside I would have got yelled at.</p>
