I've seen this done before, but this is a pretty well put together video.

There's a video of someone doing that using a condom instead of plastic wrap.

This is obviously a backup solution. I don't think any of us will use this when responding to a sultry woman asking, "got a light?"

It is always a good idea to know another way of accomplishing a neccessary task.
However, I would have to have already lost my lighter, my wallet with my credit card sized magnifying glass, my ferro-rod from around my neck, my matches and my magnesium/ferro-rod firestarter from my daypack.

And this also relies on your having a piece of clear plastic wrap handy and need to start a fire when the sun is relatively high in the sky. Lighting a fire using even a real magnifying glass becomes more difficult as the sun sinks lower in the sky and its light has to travel through more atmosphere.

In my BoB I have a full page 8.5" X 11" magnifier. This allows more sunlight to be focused into a single spot and is much more effective in lower light conditions than a smaller magnifier.



We will be going over non-match/lighter fire starting techniques in our local prepper meeting on 10 Feb.
I will be attempting to make a fire piston out of a 3/8" copper pipe and end cap, a 9mm shell casing, an o-ring, a wood dowel, and a wooden ball.

I think that's a better video to watch. I generally have a condom in my wallet but not plastic wrap.

Or paper with large black areas of ink... if he'd have used charcoal paper it would be more "real."

Does it have to be pee, or could you just create the magnifying effect with any liquid in a tight bag?

Don't think milk would work too well.

The best liquid to use, if available is plain old nice clear water. The clearer the liquid, the more sunlight passes through, the hotter the focal point of light will be and the more likely you will be to start an ember.

The ONLY reason he used pee, is because when there is no other liquid around, most people have access to at least a small amount of their own urine. If you can't pee, you are dehdrated to the point that not having a fire is the least of your problems. And if you are dehydrated, chances are your urine will be very dark and will decrease the efficiency of the lens you are making to the point of not starting a fire.

While the knowledge of how to do this is always good to have, I would probably have to have been in a plane crash to be caught without at least several methods of making a fire readily available on my person.

You need a pee powered generator to go with your pee fire starter

The urine is reacting with something in the "electrolyte cell". It would suprise me greatly if the energy cost of that something was not much greater than the electric energy output of the system.

There is liquid borax in the electrolyte cell. This has to be mined, and that takes an energy investment. Electricity has to be applied to the Borax/Urine mixture in order to release the hydrogen gas.

The end result is you still have to pay for the energy, just like you would have to pay for gasoline, or propane, or natural gas.

There is no free lunch.

They simply created a hydrogen gas generator that used urine as one of the many parts involved in the reaction.

I think I did enough shots of tequila while watching the Superbowl that I could start a fire with my pee.......
