Very fun and very cool to have.
Amazoning Shopper
Using this solar igniter is just as good as flint and steel with charcloth and the flint rod with scraper to keep in your bug out bag.
Woods Woman
Making your own charcloth is really easy - search for charcloth on youtube for instructions.

I've done a lot of camping and discovered I need at least three methods to get a fire going way out in the woods. Using this solar igniter is just as good as flint and steel with charcloth and the flint rod with scraper to keep in your bug out bag. It's a quiet and safe method to ignite a piece of punk wood to create a coal you drop into a tinder bundle to blow into a larger source of heat. (Youtube flint, steel, and charcloth.) Bic lighters break and matches get wet, so I keep one of these with me as well as a couple of flint rods and my old back up of flint, steel, and charcloth to have fire in the woods for sterilizing water, cooking meals, or for light on cold, dark nights.

As an outdoors enthusiast and world traveler have kept a metal parabolic solar lighter with my gear for forty years; more for fun than practicality. A parabolic solar lighter will never fail on a sunny day and is always a conversation starter.

There is now abundance of plastic solar cigarette lighters on the market, most are made in third world countries and none that I am familiar with could be considered a survival tool or be expected to last with time and use. They are small cheap novelty items and suitable for casual use only.

While a metal parabolic solar lighter can be used as a fire starter a small metal match or magnesium fire starter is a better emergency fire starting option, both work like high tech flint and steel throwing a very hot spark.

My original Solar Cigarette Lighter was purchased at Radio Shack in the 1970's. They discontinued it decades ago, I did however buy one for my son on an auction site recently. I hunted down the original after being disappointed with the larger size of the Solar Spark.

The Solar Spark Lighter from Sundance Solar is a slightly more robust model when compared with the earlier Radio Shack version:

The Solar Spark it is made from a heavier gauge metal, it may be more durable
The Solar Spark it is larger, a 4 5/8" circle, with a heavier rolled rim
The Solar Spark it has a 4 1/4" round parabolic reflector giving it 50% more power
The Solar Spark has twice the weight at 2oz
The Solar spark is too big for comfortable carrying in a shirt pocket

The older Radio Shack version with it 4x3" parabolic and plastic pouch was much more shirt pocket friendly.

I have waited for awhile for this to become availabe again and it is worth the wait. You really need sunglasses when using this. It takes some practice to get right angle but really does work. It has been fun starting fires instead of frustration.

This Solar Spark Lighter and Survival Tool is great fun. It will light a cigarette in a stiff breaze and you don't even puff on the cigarette to get it to light. But, you do need the sun light, so no indoors or night lightings. Sorry, but that's why it's SOLAR. I had a slightly different one from Radio Shack about 30 years ago and lost it. If it will burn, then this will light your fire. It's a lot of fun.

It worked, but too large to be considered a survival item for me! I'd rather carry a magnifying glass, which is smaller and not prone to bending which would cause this thing to be inoperable! Don't waste your hard earned money on junk! :[
