You should then wait 30-60 seconds for the current flowing through the wire to create a magnetic field before you disconnect the battery and use your newly magnetized screwdriver. Alternatively, you can get a strong bar magnet and drag it in the same direction along every side of your screwdriver to magnetize it.
