Tell us about yourself!
You got graphite there, not graphene. Graphene floats. Check youtube Robert Murray-Smith's channel.Your issue is too high voltage. You need to first saturate the piece with low voltage, then run it at around 10V. Higher voltage will cause more activity at the platinum electrode, and basicly you are spending the electricity on making gasses (likely hydrogen + oxygen).Had the same issue. It's kinda hard to hit just right.
