Lighting a campfire on a still evening should be fairly straightforward. But what about after dark, in the rain? The Sparkr Mini Lighter can provide a reliable spark in any conditions thanks to a flameless plasma arc. It also has a built-in flashlight, so you can see what you’re doing. Right now, you can get this neat camping gadget for just $19.99 at the PopSci Shop.
Light and heat are important commodities when you’re camping. The Sparkr Mini covers both bases, ensuring you won’t have to spend the night shivering under the stars. This innovative lighter uses electricity instead of butane, producing two stable plasma arcs. Whereas a flame can blow out, the plasma will keep going through wind, rain and snow.
At the other end, you will also find an LED flashlight. This provides enough light to find your kindling and get your fire going. The lighter can be charged from any USB outlet, and the soft-touch case offers better grip in damp conditions. You won’t find a better lighter for the outdoors.
Worth $29.99, the Sparkr Mini is now 33 percent off at just $19.99.
