If you’ve ever tried to light a fire in damp or windy conditions, or you spent time in the Boy Scouts, you probably know how to start a fire with a gum wrapper and a battery. Spiffy Lab’s new fire starter works on the same principle, but it’s enclosed in a much more durable, safer to operate package. Inside the negatively charged body of the device that looks like a high-end EDC pen (complete with knurled cap, clip and aluminum / copper material options) you’ll find two AAA batteries (need to add those yourself, obviously) and a positively charged copper tip hiding under the cap. Unscrew Sparky’s cap, touch both the positive and negative “terminals” to steel (steel wool is included, but a gum wrapper will work) and bam! Fire. You don’t need to worry about the windproof rating of your lighter when you’re making fire with science.
