OUTDOOR HACK

Start A Fire With A 9V And steel wool:
Using a 9v battery and raw steel wool (not a Brillo pad) create a fire by rubbing, scratching, or holding the battery on the steel wool. Work at it, the electrical resistance will cause the steel to heat and spark.
      
     Do this near your tinder pile (soft fine fabric fibers, thinly shredded TP etc...). When you've built enough ember from the steel wool gently blow or dust them into your tinder.Once your tinder is glowing work it by very gently fanning until you have a flame. Build from this point into your larger fire.
