Friends always provide the best finds.
As a shopping writer, I am constantly learning about the best products on the market and love sharing my finds with friends and family. But the ultimate reward is when loved ones share their discoveries with me. That’s exactly what happened when my best friend Hillary included this USB candle lighter as part of my birthday present. In short, it’s the coolest thing I own right now.
As much as I enjoy candles, I have long disliked the process of lighting them. . So when I opened her Suprus candle her lighter, I was intrigued when Hillary announced that it was easy to use, rechargeable, and one of her new favorites. She was also convinced the price was high, so I was shocked when she said it was under $20 (only $14 for her on Amazon).
buy: $14; amazon.com.
Like other lighters, the Suprus USB Writer has a safety lock switch that must be pressed to unlock. But the similarities end there. Unlike other models, with over 30,400 5-star ratings, USB lighters use electricity rather than fuel of any kind to generate the flame. Additionally, an LED light on the handle (or barrel) of the lighter indicates when the battery is low and needs to be recharged (all four lights will be on when fully charged).
I knew Hillary wouldn’t go wrong, but I couldn’t imagine a world where a lighter without any kind of lighter fluid could light a candle. I tilted it, and within seconds I knew I was wrong, and the candle instantly lit up. Not only did I agree that USB candle lighters were my new favorite gadget, but I found myself lighting candles more often because the process felt easier and safer. What people do when they find their new favorite gadget. i told my mother She is now a fan of hers too.
If you’re looking for an easier solution than traditional lighters that are difficult to unlock and light, consider the Suprus USB Lighter. Buy on Amazon for $14 and let’s enjoy more candles together!
