Disclosure: Plazmatic provided me with a Black Ops Plazmatic X Dual Beam Lighter to facilitate this post. The words and opinions expressed in this review are strictly of my own.
Whether you are a smoker or a non-smoker you should carry a lighter in your EDC bag! Everyone needs a good lighter in case of an emergency. Being able to start a fire is a crucial survival essential. A fire is a source for boiling water for purification, heating food, and keeping warm. With that being the case, a Bic or Zippo might do the trick whenever you are in a pinch, but you are going to want a dependable lighter when a disaster hits.
The problem with butane and disposable lighters is that they tend to fail when the conditions are less than perfect. Not to mention, you don’t want to be on your 2999 Bic light when the zombie apocalypse happens, especially if you live in New York City!
Let’s just face it, disposable lighters are not only undependable and overall a waste of money, but are also bad for the environment. They contain several nasty chemicals that are harmful to the environment when discarded and produce toxic gas if burned in the trash. An estimated 1.9 billion plastic disposable lighters find their way in the landfills and oceans every year. In marine areas, fish and birds mistake the disposable lighters as food and die from consuming them. So, you get the picture. They are an environmental nightmare. It’s time to toss them aside and step into the modern world of Plazmatic!
Matthew Stoll, the founder and inventor of Plazmatic, was on a mission to re-event the lighter with a cleaner, eco-friendlier product. His goal was to develop an extremely cool dependable lighter to grab people’s attention and bring an environmentally friendly alternative to the lighter industry. Wanting to make nasty butane fuel a thing of the past, Matthew created a futuristic rechargeable lighter known as the Plazmatic X.
Black Ops Plazmatic X Review
I was sent a Black Ops Plazmatic X Dual Beam Lighter for review and have been testing it out for a week. There is one word describing Plazmatic X—AWESOME! Not only does it light in the wind and rain, but OMG it is incredibly cool in every aspect and a great conversation starter.
The gadget is completely flameless and ultra-modern looking. Flick the top open, push the button and a purple “X” beam appears to light whatever you need. It reminds me of something out of Star Trek or Star Wars! The revolutionary lighter heats things up to a blazing 900 degrees F. AND because it is completely butane and fluid free, it does not omit any nasty chemical smell when you light it.
Weighing about 6 oz, the Black Ops Plazmatic X electric lighter features a stunning stainless, durable zinc alloy exterior with a gunmetal gray body and smooth brushed finish. The lighter is 100% electric and USB (included with purchase) rechargeable. Plug it into any USB port and you get a full charge within an hour. Each charge is good for 100+ lights. I recommend carrying a fully charged portable power bank in your EDC along with the lighter for times you need to charge it away from home. Once you use it, you won’t want to be without it!
I quit smoking years ago. However, I still need a lighter for everyday uses such as lighting candles, incense, burning strings of clothes, ect. The Plazmatic X lighter works like a charm. It’s perfect for taking camping, hiking, or other outings. A good thing to keep in mind is the beams need to be able to touch whatever you are lighting, since it is flameless. It is created to spark almost anything, including tobacco products, cigars, water pipes, hemp wick, candles, ect.
Also, as I mentioned earlier, it is a good habit to always carry a lighter for emergency situations. Having an electric lighter I know was engineered to work in unfavorable weather conditions gives me a peace of mind. I tried the lighter outside several times while it was raining and it lit every time. Additionally, I placed it in front of my fan to test it out and it fired with the purple beams without hesitation. It is flameless, so there is nothing to blow out in windy conditions!
