Can't give exact but they are strong as in the rare earth type.

I use them mainly on my oil filter canisters in the hopes of attracting the microns the filter doesn't.

Good idea. Most drain plugs back in the day were a bit magnetic.

They are strong.

Do not get your fingers between two of them, you could come up short handed.

I got really tired of waiting at traffic lights because the sensor did not "see" my bike, so I stuck a couple of hard drive magnets on my oil filter and that made a big difference.

Also it traps any loose metal dust floating around in the oil.

Harm none,
Do as you will.

somebody was telling me they had good success with magnetizing water using Neo dymium magnets.

So I was looking at various sites that sell magnets, and I came across some old used hard drive magnets on eBay for real cheap. I think I may just pick those up for the magnetizing water experiment
