My Favorite Ignition Source – the Arc Lighter

I’m old-fashioned. I like stand-alone alarm clocks, old hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and paper calendars. Thanks to a vigilant wife and daughters, my wardrobe isn’t nearly as passe as it would be if I was left to my own devices.

I learned to appreciate a good campfire at a young age. Pondering over the flickering flames and coals and poking it was an indescribable treat. I can remember doing the simple task of gathering kindling, newspapers, and, yes, matches. It fascinated me as I watched my father make fires in the fireplace and on campouts.

Short of Boy Scouts, I never ignited a fire by rubbing flint together. I guess I’m not as old-fashioned as some.

From the stone age to picnics at the local park, there has always been the need for a reliable fire-starting regimen.

Today, When I need a fire, I reach for a more efficient and dependable ignition method, the Pyro Putty Wireless Dual Arc Lighter.

First off, what is a dual arc lighter?

Well, for one, it’s an efficient ignition method that doesn’t rely on a flame. Instead, an arc lighter produces heat through a small arc of high-voltage electrical current. While not a flame, it’s hotter than an old-style lighter. You simply push a button and place your target directly under the arc. This means high heat in a very concentrated area. 

Like Pyro Putty’s Elite Dual Arc Lighter, some models have two arcs that intersect for an even more successful effect. This means you can quickly light candle wicks, fireworks, propane, and yes, Pyro Putty Firestarter

Here are just a few basic reasons to utilize this great fire-starting approach.


It’s estimated that hundreds of millions of disposable lighters find their way to the earth’s many landfills. Both rechargeable and long-lasting, the arc lighter is one way to do your part in minimizing trash and waste.

Wireless Rechargeability

Yeah, I’m mentioning this one again. Pyro Putty’s dual arc systems are long-lasting and good for hundreds of strikes in one charge. Simply plug it into an electrical source.

Small Gear Big Results

Size and weight matter. Weighing a few ounces and fitting in the palm of your hand, this small, but mighty fire-starting accessory is a welcome addition to any preparedness stash, backpack, or car console. Remember, dual arc lighters are also a windproof solution.

Primary or Backup

Any Pyro Putty Dual Arc Lighter is a lifetime piece of gear. This means it’s all you need to achieve heat in a variety of settings. It also serves as a backup source. If you still like using matches, butane lighters, and propane torches, that’s okay. You can still keep an arc lighter as a trusty backup.

From leisure to an emergency, a reliable fire-building solution affords you peace of mind. With a small cost and big utility, the arc lighter is a must for anyone wanting or needing a fire.
