The Fuego Electric Lighter is a premium alternative to a butane lighter.
Its patent-pending technology is made up of two parts; a lithium-ion battery and a screw-on heating coil. This is not a plasma lighter or a tesla lighter. The battery of this USB rechargeable lighter is 2500mAh and has a 35-watt output. Its lighting element in the heating coil is a circular grill. The grill is designed to light the entire foot of any cigar that is the 62-ring gauge or smaller. This size ring gauge was chosen because it is large enough for the majority of cigars available to the market.

The design and functionality of the grill combine cigar lighting tradition with a simpler, smarter process. It lights the surface of the cigar foot at lower temperatures than all other types of lighters. The grill doesn’t create runs you normally would get from uncontrollable flames. This controlled surface light also eliminates deep burns into the interior of the cigar. In some cases that deep burn can add up to be more than an inch of the wasted cigar. Lower temperature lighting is also known for enhancing the taste and aroma profile of the tobacco. This is most noticeable in the initial light.
This is not a torch lighter so you will never need any butane. It is a flameless lighter making it the perfect for the outdoors. The windproof design means you can take it with you on the golf course, to the beach, on a boat, or in high altitude places where butane lighters are less effective. To transport your Fuego Electric Lighter, make sure it has completely cooled then separate the battery from the heating coil. If you are going to travel with it; keep it in its original, TSA friendly packaging and only put it in your carry-on.
After you turn the battery on, press and hold the power button to heat up the grill. The grill will become red-hot heating to hundreds of degrees in seconds. A heating cycle will cut-off after ten seconds of use to prevent overheating. Release and repress the power button to start a new heating cycle. A fully charged battery holds more than fifty full 10-second heating cycles. The battery will automatically turn off fifteen seconds of non-use. This auto-off feature preserves battery life. You recharge the battery using the micro USB charging cable provided in the Fuego Electric Lighter kit. Recharging takes approximately an hour and a half.
