Introduction: How to Make Fire Using Only a Battery and Steel Wool

Learn how to make fire using only a battery and steel wool.
It is very easy to do. Just buy a 9 volt battery and some steel wool (the finer the better) and rub the battery on the wool. The wool will instantly start to spark. Lighting your tinder and making a fire will be easy like never before. Enjoy your moment as a fire god and impress your friends on your next outdoor trip.

However, be careful. The fire and the flames are dangerous. Always have water near by.

Step 1: You Will Need a Nine Volt Battery

You can buy it in everywhere they sell batteries.

Step 2: And Some Steel Wool (the Finer the Better)

The second ingredient is very cheap too. Buy it in a department store like home depot and get the finest one they offer. The finer the easier it will spark.

Step 3: Now, You Have to Get to Work ...

Just rub the battery on the wool and you will instantly see sparks

Step 4: Almost Done

Now, light your tinder with the steel wool and watch how the fire grows.
Of course paper will work very good (i found toilet paper to work best).

Now lean back and enjoy your fire.
