Teccpo's arc lighter is windproof, rechargeable, and down to less than $6

The Teccpo TDEL01P arc lighter windproof USB-rechargeable electronic lighter (opens in new tab) is down to $5.97 on Amazon with code NJL7BXPR, which you can apply during checkout. Without the code this arc lighter sells for $13. That's right around its regular price, and we have never seen it go for less than $9 directly. That makes today's deal one of the best prices we've ever seen.

The arc lighter uses a plasma arc that creates globular fire with a wider lighting area for 100% valid ignition. That means you can ignite easier and faster than other lighters, and you'll have control over the burning time with a center button.

You should be able to light things between 100 and 300 times on a single charge. The lighter has a 220mAh lithium battery. It takes about 1.5 hours to recharge and has an LED indicator to let you know the charging status.

Beyond just always having a charge available, the other benefit to a lighter like this is that there's no mess. You won't need any fluid or butane, and that also means no smell or gas taste or anything like that. It produces no smoke, either, you know beyond what you light on fire. With no need for gas and a battery that can easily recharge via USB, there's no reason this lighter shouldn't last you for a very long time.

The design is lightweight at just 2.9 ounces and compact, so you can easily keep it in your pocket like any other lighter. Always have it on hand at parties or other occasions. And since it is windproof, you can use it even when you're standing outside (you know, like when you're at a minimum distance from a building). Users give it 4 stars out of 5 based on 35 reviews (opens in new tab).
