For when you MUST start a fire to stay warm

If — heaven forbid — you get stranded and find yourself needing to light a fire for your own safety or survival, you want to be sure you can actually ignite the blaze.

The TekFire Furl-Free lighter will do that for you.

The lighter has a flameless, windproof electronic lighting element, wrapped up in a rugged case with a protective lid. It has an attached carrying cord you can use to keep it attached to your belt or pack.

A built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers a dependable fire source, and features a 10 second time-out safety feature. The lighter also comes with a USB cord for recharging; a red indicator light lets you know when it’s fully charged.
