The group abruptly stopped their conversation and looked up with eyes wide open and fixated on the guy in the kitchen. The guy in the kitchen then said “Imagine if you could do that and hold it in your hand. That would be awesome.” Without hesitation one of the guys in the group said “I think we can do that. We can build it and we can do it with a battery instead of butane.” Taken back, the guy in the kitchen cracked a half-smile and the concept behind the Fuego Electric Lighter was born.
They set off on a mission to develop a lighter that would do two things effectively; combat the wind and light the entire cigar easily. It took years of research, scientific consults, factory developments, trial, error, and prototypes until the concept of the Fuego Electric lighter became a working reality. As it turned out, they developed something with greater use than they originally intended. They created a flameless lighter that combated the wind, but they also found a way to eliminate burns and runs during lighting. It only lit the surface of the cigar at temperatures vaporizers use turn liquid into vapor. They decreased the time it took to reach those temperatures over a large surface area. And, this was done with reusable energy that fits in the palm of your hand. There has never been a lighter that has its own self-sustaining power source of this size that has the ability to light large diameter full-size cigars.
