What are electric lighters?

Also known as plasma arc lighters, they are pocket-sized gadgets meant to replace your regular lighter in day to day use.

How do they work?

Regular lighters usually consist of a container filled with a flammable fluid or gas, a means of ignition to produce the flame and sometimes a way of extinguishing the flame.

Electric lighters don't use regular fuel, they use pure electricity that flows through a circuit. The circuit is designed with 4 nodes strategically placed to form a double arc so that the current jumps from one to the other and while doing that it ionizes the air creating a really satisfying to watch plasma or electric arc which you can use to light whatever you need.

Why are electric lighters better?

Versatility is the keyword here as they can be used in all the scenarios where a regular lighter would work and more. 


Rainy day? It doesn't matter! These are windproof lighters and also flameless , which allows you to use them even in the harshest weather conditions.


They are USB rechargeable lighters, which means you can charge them via most standard USB cords and have them available in minutes. An USB lighter can be easily resuscitated compared to regular cigarette lighters.


Arc electric lighters, as their name is saying, use electricity to light things up, instead of harmful gas, so they are better for the environment and better for your pockets and can be used thousands of times compared to regular disposable lighters.



Are plasma lighters dangerous?

They are much safer than regular lighters as the chances of them actually blowing up are quite slim. They don't contain any flammable gas and some like Vibe Lighters have safety features to prevent them from overheating or working when the lid is closed. Another important aspect to take into consideration is that you don't have to deal with an uncontrollable flame as these beauties are flameless lighters.

How long do plasma lighters last?

In perfect conditions, high-quality lighters like Vibe Lighters should last you for 100-200 cigarettes on a full charge, but your mileage may vary as this is highly dependant on how experienced you are with using them.
