You can light a fire in many different ways. A storm lighter is a handy device for easily lighting camping stoves, campfires, etc. when you are outdoors. Get your fire going quickly and easily and avoid having to deal with damp and burnt matches, etc. Or use a classic pocket flint lighter which is portable and fits neatly into your jacket pocket or bag. Bic Maxi lighters are ideal as they can be used repeatedly for lighting candles, a fire or also a BBQ. Another handy device is a utility lighter that is refilled with gas. Most gas lighters have a long neck for safety so your hands avoid getting near the fire and are easily refilled with butane gas when you run out. Butane gas is sold in cans for refilling utility lighters, soldering lamps, cigarette lighters, etc. Or if you are looking for something more modern, check out a USB rechargeable electric arc lighter.
