Copper is a better conductor than graphite for electricity due to its lattice structure with free electrons that can transmit energy across the structure, whilst graphite is still able to conduct electricity, it is not as strong a conductor as copper. Furthermore, copper is a lot more malleable than graphite as even though graphite is shaped, the layers of copper ions being able to slide over one another, enables copper to be better shaped for the use in a wire.
