Basic lighting overview

You’ve probably seen ads for other Atomic Beam branded products such as Atomic Beam, Atomic Beam Lantern, Atomic Beam Headlights and others. This brand is designed for people who live outdoors and for people interested in survival and tactical niches. Today, manufacturers have returned with a nuclear lighter, a refillable electric lighter that does not consume any fuel.

The use of an atomic lighter does not require the cumbersome flange turning technique used in standard lighters. In fact, a simple push on the button on the side of the lighter is enough to activate the plasma arc. Once lit, you can use the lighter to light everything you want with a standard lighter.

A few similar lighters have recently appeared on the market, such as a competitor product called Ever Light, but it requires batteries, while the Atomic lighter is simply charged via a USB cable, which seems to me the best solution for most people.

As with other Atomic branded products, the advertisement demonstrates the sustainability of this product by transporting it in a truck. I have no doubt that durability will not be a problem for a nuclear lighter, but frankly I doubt that a standard metal lighter will pass that test either.

You can get about 100 charging lamps, although this depends on how long you keep the plasma arc lit each time. Keep in mind that the area where the plasma arc exists is not very large, so it may take some time to get used to it compared to a normal open flame lighter. For example, advertisements say that you can light a cigar with an atomic lighter, but that the open arc is not as large as the end of the cigar, which means you have to move it to fully light the end of the cigar.

I have mixed feelings about the atomic lighter. Some things I like, like the fact that it is rechargeable and durable (I drove it over with my car and he was hardly hurt). It’s also good for starting fires. However, I have noticed that the tabs are easily clogged. When I tried a loaded cigarette, it didn’t work. I had to go home to clean it and recharge it, so I don’t know why the energy ran out so fast unless it was connected somehow so it could discharge its energy.

I would like the lid to tip more, as often seems to be the case. In addition, you should keep the lighter as close as possible to the objects to be illuminated. A nuclear lighter can cost more than a normal lighter for you, but if you don’t have to worry about replacing or refilling a lighter, it can be a valuable long-term investment, depending on its intended use. If you smoke cigarettes, you have to think twice before you use them. It gets dirty and dirty when you light it and you may have to clean the lighter after every cigarette.

If the idea of the atomic lighter seems new to you, you might be surprised to hear that arc lighters are actually quite common. This Tesla coil lighter, for example, costs around $14 and has a solid 4.1 star rating from around 2000 customer reviews.
