Their greatest strength, however, comes with a trade-off: since they lack surface area, it’s harder for them to grab onto certain surfaces. This means sphere magnets work best when being used with other sphere magnets. These unique magnetic balls are most commonly used for classroom demonstrations, DIY projects, and workplace fun -- Continue reading →
