Lighters are great and all, but they are too prone to fail. Typical lighters can run out of fuel, or the flint may need to be replaced. Once they get wet, that’s it. That’s not good if you need to use it in an emergency. Sometimes you need a more rugged lighter. Like the Brunton Helios Stormproof Lighter.
Priced at $49, it has a windproof adjustable high-temp flame that can withstand winds up to 80mph. Its Piezo electric switch provides up to 30,000 ignitions. And when the lid is closed, Helios is completely waterproof. It refills using the Brunton FuelTool which costs around $12. That’s probably the only downside.
