I had one of those YEARS ago that I got with "Camel Cash". They work great!
Don't talk about what you have done (or what you
are going to do). Do it and let it speak for itself.

I ordered one for a stocking stuffer,but I had to get hammered by all kinds of demands to join the "Lamplighters Society" a bunch of survival publications and you can't get the match thing until you listen to all that B.S. morayman.......

I ordered one for myself yeah there's one of those "you must have this info" pitches that ya got a sit through, took maybe 15 mins I just said no to everything and then a confirmation came up that the perma match is on the way. I consider watching their pitch a fair trade sort of like a time share weekend lol.

I ordered one and sat through the BS.    I wouldn't mind getting the books but just don't have the resources to spend it right now.  Heck, just looking at their sales pitch probably upped my profile on someones watch list!!!!   Mission accomplished!

Cool idea, as long as there is fuel to fill it with.


For short term emergencies this thing will be worth it's weight in gold, though.


Unless, of course, you have to ability to produce and purify ethanol.


That said, I ordered one anyway. "But wait, there's more!"

Well I got it, it isn't the nice square seemingly metal one with the quick release key ring like this:



Its a round feels like plastic tube with a crappy key ring like this:



Package says its good for 15000 lights I guess its ok for the $2.95 but not like the one they show in the OP link.

Got mine about a week ago or so. Mine is the square one. It is very small. 1 1/8 inches by 1 7/8 inches (to top of striker sticking out). Has the metal key fob clip thingy on it.


HiPoint45, I don't know about yours, but mine feels...fragile. Definitely not intended for hard use. I don't have any lighter fluid ATM, so I can only make sparks right now. Smells like lighter fluid, though, but not saturated enough to ignite.

Yes thats what I meant by crappy plastic, not for hard use but for $3 bucks its another fire option I filled mine with Ronson let it sit overnight and it fired up a flame on first strike so that part works fine. I'm going to wrap it in a cloth and put it in a ziplock bag and turn it different ways for a day or two to check its seal I won't trust it in a pocket or bag until I do that because it does feel cheap.

Years back I carried a Zippo. Had it leak a few times and burn the ol' ball sack. :'( :'(

I got mine a couple days ago.  It is the round one too and I agree, you get what you pay for.  Mine seems to leak somewhat but not enough to cause an issue.   Seems to be pretty wind proof too.   I may get out this weekend and play with it a bit to put it through its paces.

Speaking of leaking...I was at our storage units today looking for my 20# propane tank. In my rootings, I found a leftover can of lighter fluid. I used to have one of those Jon-e hand warmers. Anyway, just filled my little flint lighter, replaced the cap, and it ran out the top. When I filled it, I could see fluid down towards the bottom of the lighter. Around maybe a half inch from the bottom. Apparently that is too much, so I dumped it. Either it didn't take long to re-saturate the filler, or there aint much to saturate. Works as advertised, though.


Tac, it's not just you. It is a rather tiny gadget.
