    My son-in-law introduced me to “plasma lighters” and they’re a great option for lighting a variety of things. They’re basically a battery-powered continuous “sparker” and are rechargeable. He showed me one for lighting cigars that creates an x of two plasma “sparks” but the ones we use have a flexible shaft, which makes them great for lighting stoves, BBQs (with dead sparklers), candles, lamps, etc. Plus they’re rechargeable via USB, so pretty much always ready - and cheap to “refill”. This is one we got and like:

    We even use it for lighting fire starters in the fireplace.

    There just as many negative as positive reviews on this lighter.

    Ah - then don’t get it and/or get a different one, if that’s your take. We’ve been pleased and it’s a new technology I didn’t know about.

    We had previously bought a different one which has been equally fine but this one has a slightly longer neck.

    I have found that those spark lighters are nearly useless. I'm glad you are happy.

    They are pretty fun. I watched a "best gifts for under $20" video a couple of years ago that recommended one and I threw it on my Christmas list and got it.

    They are windproof and will light some things (gas, newspaper) near instantly. Other things (wood, etc) not so good for. I like mine, but it won't replace a standard lighter either.

    Purchased two last spring, used them to light camping stove. Worked great for us and they will light the stove in a strong wind.
