Many people will remember the time when to light up our pipe or cigarette, a box of matches had to be used, this would provide a flame, unless of course the matches or striking surface was damp! Then along came the petrol lighter, which was fine until it ran out of fuel, or the flint had worn out! Soon after, the gas lighter with electronic ignition put the trusty old petrol lighter to “the sword”, with the exception of the fans of the Zippo of course.
The gas lighter proved to be a huge improvement, although it still needed to be re-fuelled regularly and the “Boffins” began the quest for a lighter which did not rely upon fuel and ignition to light it. This has been achieved with the ground breaking Maxim USB Blake lighter that does not rely on fuel or flints. The “Blake” is a pocket sized lighter which is charged from a computer USB port, it is windproof, and it can be used anywhere, anytime and also at any angle.
Defying the anything that the weather sends, all that has to be done to light up your cigarette is to simply pull down on the front panel, and the electric lighter underneath heats up, allowing you to light up and enjoy your smoke. There are other advantages too; it can be taken along when you fly as it has no fuel, the battery is capable of being charged hundreds of times from any laptop USB Port, or any USB wall charger.
Measuring just approximately 73mm x 25mm x 18mm, the Maxim USB Blake Lighter is offered in three attractive colours, black, silver, or gun metal.
