There’s no question that the Sparkr Mini Plasma Lighter 2.0 is one of the coolest lighters you’ll ever come across. First of all, it’s windproof. You know how torch lighters say they’re windproof but they still blow out in moderate wind? Yeah, this puppy is completely windproof because it doesn’t use fire at all. Instead, it uses a badass plasma arc to ignite. The other great thing is the fact that this lighter never needs fuel! It runs on electricity, and it can be recharged with a microUSB cable plugged into the wall, a portable power pack, or even your laptop.
Note that there are two main complaints people have about this lighter in the reviews on Amazon. One is that it’s made out of plastic (uh, it’s a plastic lighter, guys) and the other is that the built-in LED flashlight tends to turn on accidentally while the lighter is in your pocket. That’s an old complaint for the original version of the lighter, and it’s been addressed in this new upgraded version — you have to tap the button three times to turn the LED flashlight on, so there’s no way it’ll turn on in your bag or pocket now.
This could very well be the last lighter you ever buy, and it’s a terrific value at $29.99. But if you pick one up right now on Amazon and use the coupon code L5IMQBFO at checkout, you’ll pay just $19.49!
Here are some bullet points from the product page:
- VERSION 2 UPGRADES: Flashlight activation changed to 3 button click so it can no longer turn on accidently in your pocket or bag. Plasma spark changed to custom frequency so it no longer creates the high-pitch sound associated with plasma lighters.
- NO FUEL NEEDED: This small, flip-style lighter offers a classic look and feel but never needs refueling. Plug the included micro-USB cable into any USB port when the power gets low and you’re set for another 100 – 300 sparks.
- EVERYDAY CARRY: Constructed from lightweight yet durable impact-resistant polycarbonate making it convenient to carry in your pocket. It also has a 15 lumen LED flashlight in the bottom of the lighter for easy access to light.
- EASY TO USE: The Sparkr Mini’s windproof X patterned dual arcs make lighting up easy regardless how windy or cold it may be. It’s intentionally design to light just the tip of a cigarette by being perfectly spaced so the sparks suck into a cigarette just like a regular flame.
- ONE YEAR WARRANTY: The Power Practical team is committed to providing high-quality products and offers a one-year limited warranty on our electric lighters.
