Electricity. The basis of all electronics in TPT, travels along wires and other conductive elements.

SPRK is created when:
- is placed within 2 pixels of any conductor except , , , or .
- , non-brown , , or hits a conductor.
- hits a layer of with behind it.
- , , , , or are activated
- with ctype SPRK is next to a conductor
- or has a life between 1 and 300
- with a life of 0 is next to
- is next to and
Creates a current of electricity and is used to turn powered materials on or off.
SPRK cannot be placed alone, you need to put it on a conductive material. SPRK can be blocked by in most cases. As long as there is an INSL between the two conductors, it will not go through. Some special elements won't be activated through INSL either, although some will anyway (like ). Some elements have special rules on which other conductors it can conduct to, see each element for help.
SPRK can travel through most conductors every 8 frames, with 4 frames of activity and then 4 frames of rest before a conductor will receive any more SPRK. SPRK travels twice as fast through , , or as it does through most other conductors and one quarter as fast in . The travel time through is the same for any length.
SPRK produces heat when traveling through most conductors. produces the most heat this way, getting up to 3323.25°C. , , and reach 390.68°C. Unless heated, will rise until just under 400°C before dropping to reach around 391°C. METL, BMTL, and BRMT will turn maroon when heated to these temperatures. reaches 35.82°C, expanding if not contained. will hover between around 31-41°C unless it produces plasma. and jump from 25.20-48.27°C. heats to exactly 22°C.
Some conductors will actually cool down when heated above a threshold and sparked. ETRD cools to its temperature range, INWR and WATR cool to 22°C, cools to around 21.6°C, and cools to around 21.6°C. is strange in that it, in small amounts, it actually cools itself down to near absolute zero, but in large enough amounts can heat itself with to max temperature.
A must have for all electronics. Many different uses.
