Introducing SPARKR: All-­Weather Plasma Lighter


From Power Practical:

Power  Practical,  makers  of  award-­winning  innovative  products  and   solutions  for  active  lifestyles  and  everyday  living,  is  proud  enter  new  territory  with  the  unveiling  of   the  Sparkr  and  Sparkr  mini  Plasma  Lighters.  The  Sparkr  all-­weather  flameless  lighter  with  an   integrated  flashlight  is  a  sleek,  practical  and  durable  gadget  designed  for  the  rigors  of   backcountry  adventure  and  the  convenience  of  everyday  carry.

Power  Practical,  well  known  for  the  company’s  award-­winning  Power  Pot™  and  success  on   ABC’s  hit  show  Shark  Tank,  is  excited  to  unveil  the  company’s  latest  feat  of  electrical   engineering:  the  Sparkr  ($49.99)  and  Sparkr  Mini  ($29.99).  Inspired  by  a  6ft-­tall  Tesla  Coil   developed  in  the  team’s  free  time,  the  Sparkr  is  a  more  practical  pocket-­sized  version  that   delivers  a  small  but  concentrated  electrical  current  between  two  electrodes.  The  result  is  a   windproof,  water  resistant,  lighter  that  delivers  a  hotter  and  more  targeted  point  of  ignition  than  a   traditional  open  flame.

The  Sparkr  is  designed  with  an  electric  plasma  lighter  on  one  end  and  a  150  lumen  flashlight  /   lantern  on  the  other.  The  built-­in  rechargeable  lithium  ion  battery  can  power  the  Sparkr’s  flashlight   for  up  to  4  hours  on  high  (16  hours  on  low),  and  deliver  hundreds  of  plasma  ignitions.  The  Sparkr   is  made  with  durable  anodized  aluminum  body  and  comes  with  an  ergonomically  molded  thumb   grip  with  rubberized  on/off  buttons.  A  quick  twist  lighter  cap  protects  the  plasma  lighter  element   when  not  in  use  or  may  be  used  to  transform  the  flashlight  into  a  light-­diffusing  lantern.

Power  Practical  is  also  releasing  the  Sparkr  Mini,  a  smaller  sidekick  of  less  than  half  the  size  and   with  an  x-­shaped  plasma  lighting  element.  The  compact  size,  lightweight  durable  construction,   and  all-­weather  ignition,  makes  the  Sparkr  Mini  the  perfect  everyday  day  carry  companion.

Both  the  Sparkr  and  Sparkr  Mini  may  be  purchased  ahead  of  production  on  Kickstarter  at  limited  time  special  pricing.
