What are Arc Lighters?
An arc lighter or plasma lighter is an electronic lighter with a single or dual arc of plasma in between 2 or 4 electrodes. You light up the lighter by pressing a button, and after that the plasma is maintained by a lower voltage.
The electricity it generates is enough to light up any object that comes in touch with it.
The lighter takes about an hour to charge, and it uses a standard USB charger.
You can use the lighter around 300 times with each charge.
Double arcs produce more heat, but use up the battery faster, in comparison to single arcs that produce less energy, but their batteries last longer.
