This inexpensive lighter uses a rechargeable battery instead of fuel and a spark instead of a flame. The Tacklife ELY01 will work about 1000 times before needing a recharge and can be charged about 500 times. In other words, it should last a very long time before needing to be retired.
The head on Tacklife ELY01 Rechargeable Electric Arc Lighter ($17) is flexible for those tough to reach ignition spots (think bbq grills, gas fireplaces, etc..). Also good for damp and windy conditions as it doesn’t have a flame to blow out. Video of this electric arc lighter after the break.
