Flameless, Windproof Fire Starting
Featuring a high voltage electric arc for ignition, the UST TekFire lighter offers easy push-button operation for quick fire starting in breezy conditions.
The internal lithium-ion battery eliminates the need for liquid fuel, and it can be easily recharged via any USB port using the included cord. It can also be used at all altitudes without requiring oxygen intake adjustment.
Easy starting with simple push button operation, the TekFire has a convenient green indicator that lights when in use and a 10-second time-out safety feature.
- Includes wrist lanyard
Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the windproof, flameless, and electronic TekFire lighter requires no butane fuel or adjustments for altitude.
To recharge the TekFire, simply plug in to any USB port with the included USB cable. An indicator light flashes red while charging and is solid red when fully charged.
The included paracord wrist lanyard can be unwound for about 3 feet of all-purpose paracord for use as sewing thread, sutures, fishing line, first aid, and more.

It's got that cap closure bar
that makes the lighter look invincible.
As much as I wished there was going to be
a part of the instructions that talked about being waterproof
I wasn't surprised that it's not.
The lighter seems cool and works every time.
Charges fast and glows solid when it's done.
It is very cool with the pop open cap.
The igniter button is on the side of the lighter that doesn't have their name written on it.
The burning area is small and created by the two points that create the ark
and they are not very far apart so lighting things is actually not easy.
It is fuel free
It goes off in ten seconds no matter what.
Comes with very short USB cable.
I give it 5 stars because it is everything they say it is
And. No. I don't know but it could be like an emergency taser.
It is super pure Nikola Tesla in your pocket.
CONSTRUCTION: The Tekfire has a rubberized outer layer with plastic hinges and a small cover. There is a rubber cover for the 7 inch micro USB cable that it comes with. It is NOT waterproof and the instructions say don't use this when wet which is a good idea because it used an electric arc to light fires.
ACTUAL USE: Works great!!! Creates a mini electric arc that lasts up to 10 seconds and is truly windproof. It has no fuel and fully recharges in 2.5 hours with the included micro USB cable. Came with a partial charge right out of the package and I could use it right away.
It makes a tiny buzzing sound when you press the button and light it. I couldn't turn it on when the cap was closed.
This lighter could be easily damaged if you drop it on the electrodes with the cover off. You should be careful to keep the electrodes clean also.
OVERALL, This is a really nice USB lighter that uses NO fuel and is truly windproof and compact. More expensive than a BIC lighter but the USB recharging makes it really useful for travel.
The biggest limitation, IMO, is the small (about 4 mm) wide area between the electrodes where you can ignite something. Because there is no flame that will extend out, you need to get something very close to the arc between the electrodes. You can light something thin (like a small twig, candle wick, or toothpick) or flexible (like cotton or paper) just fine, but larger objects are challenging to impossible.
The second biggest limitation is probably the potential fragile nature of the electrodes, which enters more into it because the distance between them is so small and makes it more likely that you'll bump them when trying to light something.
It also freaks out my dog. That won't affect everyone, but someone else mentioned that their young daughter didn't like the noise. My hearing doesn't go much about 14 kHz anymore, but even I can detect some high frequency noise coming from it. My pooch Ivory, who usually doesn't react much to noise, did not like this one bit. So, I only use it when she's not around now.
That said, I do like it overall for home use. I wouldn't trust it to save my life out in the woods, but that's mostly from a lack of experience with electronic lighters and other people's reviews on how theirs only worked a couple of times or never worked at all. For lighting candles and such around the house, it's a convenient alternative to my butane-powered lighters. For any candles inside of glass jars, it not really possible to light the wick directly with this because the lid prevents me from getting the arc close enough to the wick. So, I light a toothpick (which this does very easily), and then light the wick.
I think that the case is made fairly robustly, and I like the dual retaining mechanisms for the lid - the lid will latch closed (and you push the black button to open it), and you can further lock it shut with the steel retaining arm. There is an o-ring on the body where the lid closes, making it more weather resistant when closed. The USB charging port has a cover, too.
For some uses, I bet it's five stars. For mine at home, it's somewhere between three and four, landing more on three because of the small ignition area and (I'm assuming) high-pitched noise that bothers my pooch. Not bad for about $20, if even as a novelty for folks who (like me) like lighters. I'll probably mostly stick with my Colibri butane lighter, but I am glad that I have this as a back up.

Okay, does it work? Yes. It works. If you have it charged, it works. It's also wind-resistant which is great.Read more
