Years ago when I was in Scouts, we learned that we could get a fire going with steel wool, tinder, and a 9V battery. All you had to do was stack tinder on the steel wool and use the battery as an igniter by touching it to the steel wool. You had to be careful, as that always got a fire going fast.

I love watching Survivorman and he often talks/uses this technique. Really cool and fast.

OT, but we used to get kids to lick a 9V when we were younger.

I actually remember doing this, now I don't know why I did. I of course was just a child. The metal taste wasn't very satisfying.

ehh, you did it to check the charge...a 9 volt with a good charge left on it tingles a good bit more than an almost dead one

yeah I was taught to wrap the ends of 9v batteries in electrical tape when storing if I didn't have the original packaging. My dad taught me to do this but I never knew why. Now I know

Default Re: 9V BATTERY DESTROYS HOME

I learned my leason with 9v batteries a few months ago. I was changing the batteries in the fire alarms in the house, and had a couple of 9v's in my pocket. All of the sudden my leg started to burn. I reached in to pull the batteries out and one of them was smoking hot. I think a quarter made the connection between the posts, not sure. But I researched it and learned my lesson, with a red mark on my leg to show for it.
