Battery-Powered Fire Starter
The Bison Airlighter measures 21 in. long by 3 1/2 in. high by 3 in. wide and weighs just over 1 lb. It comes with a built-in fuel canister and a 5 1/2-in. long metal barrel that emits a 4-in. jet of flame that reaches 2,600 degrees Fį.
To ignite the fuel, you push a release button with one hand while pushing a second button forward with the other. The flame goes out when you release the trigger. Once youíve lit the kindling or charcoal, sliding the igniter button in the other direction activates a fan that blows air over the fire, stoking it to high heat. The barrel remains cool to the touch during use, and child safety locks prevent accidental ignition.
The Airlighter comes with a built-in LED flashlight at the bottom and a bottle opener. The handle can be pivoted down to form a pistol grip that redistributes the unitís weight. The unit has a USB-type A socket for recharging from your home, car or even your computer.
The fuel tank holds 2 oz. of butane which is enough for 15 min. of burn time. At an average ignition time of 20 seconds, thatís enough for 45 uses.
The Airlighter sells on Amazon.com for $49.95 including S&H.
