USB lighters create an environmentally-friendly option for lighting items like candles or cigarettes. This type of lighter runs from electricity rather than lighter fluid. The battery in the USB lighter creates an electrical arc at the top of the lighter. The arc’s heat allows it to ignite items. It won’t create emissions from the burning of fuel like a traditional flame lighter. To charge the battery in the USB lighter, you’ll use a USB cable to plug it into a wall outlet. Most USB lighters can delver 100 or more ignitions per full charge. The majority of units will have a child safety system to avoid burns.
