- Fuel - This lighter doesn’t need fuel; you recharge it over USB. How cool is that?
- Wind - Since it’s using tiny electrical coils to create heat rather than an open flame, it can’t be blown out.
- Orientation - You can use a plasma lighter upside down without burning your fingers, which makes lighting candles a lot easier.
We covered the Sparkr Mini here, and now you can get it for $24 on Amazon, down from its usual $30. That’s a few bucks more than some other electric lighters we’ve seen, but the Sparkr Mini is one of the most compact models out there, yet it features two criss-crossing arcs for a more reliable spark, and also a built-in flashlight. Needless to say, this would make a fantastic little stocking stuffer for the holidays.
