If you’re a smoker who always has a disposable Bic lighter on hand, it’s time to ask more of that small accessory taking up space in your pocket. The LighterBro is basically designed to serve as a case for your Bic lighter that also happens to give it amazing slicing, repairing and bottle-opening powers.
I can’t stop watching this guy burn through different materials with a preposterously intense laser that he built into a Zippo case. Metal, plastic, wood, rubber — these are no match for the laser lighter. Uhh, this is dangerous.
The simple form and function of a Zippo lighter has made it an incredibly iconic design. But it could soon be supplanted by Alessi if the Italian houseware manufacturer prices its new Sushi lighter to compete with the Zippo. That, or convince a Hollywood producer to have an action hero prominently use it in an upcoming blockbuster.
For a different kind of light in your pocket, swap out your official Zippo for this lookalike that has the flint wheel and wick replaced with a set of ultra-bright white LEDs. It will never get even remotely hot enough to light a cigarette, but should help you find a more reliable source of fire when it’s dark out.
Sometimes a sneak attack is the best way to fight off a would-be assailant. Pulling an obvious can of pepper spray out of your pocket or purse immediately tips them off that they’re about to be blasted. But they’ll be none-the-wiser if you pulled out this innocuous-looking lighter.
Zippo has always accepted larger custom corporate orders, but recently they’ve introduced a new flash-based online tool that lets you customise an individual lighter, for those who don’t need hundreds with a photo of their cat on it.
