The perfect accompaniment to any fire starter, the Ultimate Survival Technologies WetFire tinder can help you get a blaze going even in a downpour. In fact, the cubes actually burn longer when wet! It is individually packaged in a lightweight solid cube form that can't leak or foul up your other gear. It leaves none of the residue of inferior petroleum-based products and is non-toxic. The cubes burn without smoke and can be started even in high winds and nasty weather. At high altitude you have enough to worry about without wasting energy trying to light an uncooperative stove. With WetFire tinder, this problem is solved. Just sprinkle a small amount of tinder shavings around the backpacker stove, and it lights instantly. Use it to light your backyard barbecue, or to start a fire in your living room fireplace. Make yourself popular when only you can start the late night beach bonfire.Over 1,300 degree Fahrenheit flame..Fire can start with only a small pile of shavings..For use with any UST or other sparking device, stormproof lighter and/or stove..5-year shelf life..

Though it would be cool to get a discount/free stuff for my honest review, I did not get any.. This is all me spending my $ and giving my honest review.
In fact, the only thing that would make it better is if you had a little case or something to keep the packets in once you unsealed one of them and partially used it. I can't knock the product for that. If you wanted to you could pre-shave some of this into an altoids or other small conainer and just pinch what you need to get a fire going.
I pulled these out and took a match to it. It lit right away and burned the kindling pile and the Esbit cube.
Next day, I shaved some of the cube and it took a spark (using StrikeFire) and lit instantly! Wow!!!
These are individually wrapped and that made handling them very easy.
Wetfire cube has the consistency of very soft but crumbly cheese. It's interesting in that it's firm enough to be manipulated and used (did not come apart during storage, handling and transportation), but soft enough that I can easily shave it to catch a spark. Amazing!
You don't need to use the whole thing. Just enough to catch a spark and start your kindling. The actual amount you use will depend on your situation.
I do a lot of primitive camping, but using this felt like I was cheating! Well, I was. :)
I now have these as emergency back up when all else fails!!

When using a whole cube I had a 10" pile of wood fully on fire in about a minute.
