Product Details

What is a piezo lighter? The “piezoelectric effect” results from compression of a crystal of quartz. The compression generates an electrostatic voltage. In the case of this appliance, the electricity produced is in the form of a burst of electrical sparks. No batteries, fuel or flints are required. The life expectancy of the appliance is indefinite if it is not damaged. This is a safer lighter. Dimensions: 1" x 1½" x 9". Simple thumb operation. Weighs 170 grams. A convenient mounting bracket is included for storage or wall mounting.
