The Modern Man’s Guide To The 18 Best Electric Lighters

Updated on June 01, 2021 by Chris Bajda

Winding down with a good cigar is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but what can you do when your lighter is out of juice or your spark wheel fails you? 

Enter the USB rechargeable plasma lighter – a modern solution for today’s smoker. A typical electric plasma lighter is flameless, making it windproofand waterproof. While every electric plasma lighter is slightly different, most of them use either single or dual arc technology to give you a clean spark every single time. 

An electric plasma USB lighter harnesses a strong electric current that passes between two or four nodes (for a dual arc lighter), creating a bridge of highly charged plasma. It’s basically like having lightning in your pocket. 

So, the question isn’t “should I get an electric lighter?” but “what’s the right electric lighter for me?” With that in mind, here are our top 18 picks for single arc, dual arc, and eventriple arc electric lighter choices!

18. Club Cigars, Anyone? -Dual Arc Plasma Lighter

Club cigars are a slender alternative to more regular king-sized cigars, and that means they’re easier to take on the go. You’ll need an electric arc lighter that’s just as light and portable!

This dual arc plasma lighter pairs perfectly withcigarillos and club cigars because of its compact form factor and undeniable class. It’s got no butane, no pain, and no hassle. It also fits perfectly into any cigar case and can even be used as a traditional lighter!

17. The Adventurer’s Best Choice -SUPRUS Windproof Electric Arc Lighter

16. Father Nature’s Dual Arc Lighter -Saberlight Windproof Flameless Lighter

15. The Minimalist Master -TROPRO USB Rechargeable Plasma Lighter

USB charging is one of the greatest things that’s ever happened. Without it, we’d be luggingway too many different cables just to keep our items at full charge.
