Any time of year can be considered candle season. Being able to light up and enjoy amazing scents is a small pleasure but one that many people enjoy immensely. The only way you’re gonna make your house smell good (other than actually baking) is by lighting those candles with a lighter. Matches are disposable and wasteful while lighters can provide you with the quick flame that you need to enjoy the smells of the season. Obviously lighters can be used for many different reasons, such as starting a grill, lighting a cigar or setting the mood with some candles. With any of the lighters we’ve highlighted below, you won’t be “light” on the amount of ways to use them for (yup, we went there).

Best Rechargeable Lighter

Don’t worry about having to throw away disposable lighters or refilling butane any more, thanks to the Tesla Coil Lighters USB Rechargeable Windproof Arc Lighter. You can charge this lighter with a USB cord and port and a single charge can last between 100 to 300 uses. It only weighs three ounces and measures 3″ x 1.75″ x 0.5″, so it’s easily transportable. It even comes with a little carrying case, making it even more portable. It’s safe and easy to use and lights at the click of a button. Make sure to keep your fingers away from the electric arc while using it.
