These electric coil lighters are USB rechargeable and require no flame and no butane. You can even say they’re environmentally friendly, since there will be no more throwing out of those cheap, plastic, gas station lighters. USB lighters are also known as being safer to operate as they don’t produce a flame and can go with you virtually anywhere.

It’s not easy — or fun).
