Electromagnets can be made from ordinary magnets having their magnetic potential "amplified" by a huge current. So when they are turned off, they go back to being ordinary small weakling magnets, but still have SOME power.
wrong, I'll have a word with my Wizard!
Plus if it had been turned on for long enough, and left on, it would have gained it's own magnetic potential and become a "real"magnet. Just like Robo-Pinnochio. But let's not make itcomplicated now.
