    Pencils were origanally made of lead, but were changed to graphite for safety reasons.

    i think what he means of "Lead" is not that element named Lead (Pb) but actually "the lead of the pencil" AKA the graphite itself.

    dude it worked and i was just amazed like :o

    I tried this and the lead just exploded! Looking back, it's probably becuase I used a 15 volt 30 amp bench power supply :P I'm gonna try it next with a 12 volt gel cell and see what happens. Good idea though, thanks :)

    Wait a minnit... I think if you were to enclose the graphite in a vacumn, you would have a light bulb...

    soz but u can also connect wires up to the lead and so you can put t in the powder the way i showed was just the basic way to light stuff and ruin you clips on the charger

    yes you can use a 9v. then you can have hot graphite shoot into your face as the heat fractures it on your desk. ow.

    well i hevent play with any powder for some time now and i wouldent know but you can always try.

    Will graphite pencil lead work?cuz thats all i have

    I just tried this with thinner lead, it broke and burnt a little line on my carpet. Great tip though, pencil lead is a lot easier than tungsten wire for me to get a hold of.
