How to Use a USB Lighter?

Have you ever thought about all the possibilities that unlocking fire can create? From cooking over a campfire to igniting a candle to set the right mood for a romantic dinner, having a lighter handy opens up worlds of opportunity. 

The Motli Light And The Candle Lighter - Core Collection are two of the most innovative USB lighters on the market. The devices are powered by a rechargeable battery/tesla coil, making them an economically sound choice, as well as an environmentally friendly one. 

But how exactly do you use a USB lighter? It's effortless. First, you will need to charge the lighter by hooking it up to any USB port using the cord it came with. Once it is charged, you must hold down the trigger or move the switch to on to get it working. Make sure your finger is away from the heat, and bring the flame (or arc) close enough to whatever material needs lighting to get it lit. 

What is a Lighter?

A lighter is a pocket-sized device used to start a fire. It is often used for lighting candles and pipes or even starting campfires.

The most common type of lighter is the disposable lighter. These lighters are inexpensive, easy to use, and can be purchased anywhere. They come in various colors and sizes, although most can fit in a pocket. Therefore, disposable lighters take up lots of space in landfills. Once it is out of fuel, you’ll just toss it in the garbage and buy a new one.

Refillable butane lighters are also available, which require refilling with butane gas once the fuel runs out. This type of lighter is more expensive than the disposable variety. Refillable butane lighters are also available, which require refilling with butane gas once the fuel runs out. This type of lighter is more expensive than the disposable variety.

Butane lighters are not the ideal option for convenience or environmental well-being. Refilling them can be quite messy, and the fumes can be harmful. 

For those looking for an alternative to the disposable or butane-fueled lighter, USB electric lighters use a battery-powered coil to produce heat that can start fires. Electric lighters are usually more expensive than traditional varieties, but they don’t require fuel refills and are often easier to use.

How to Use a USB Lighter?

Using a USB lighter is an easy and effective way of lighting candles, fireworks, and more. With the right techniques, you can quickly light whatever you need with minimal effort. Here are some tips on how to use a USB lighter safely and efficiently:

A. Safety First

As with any fire-based activity, safety should always come first. Before using your USB lighter, ensure you are doing so in a safe environment, away from fuel and other flammable materials. Additionally, keep your lighter away from children or anyone else who may not know how to use it properly.

B. Hold Down The Trigger

Once you’re in a safe environment, you can begin using your lighter. Hold down the trigger of your lighter or slide the switch to the on position to get an arc that acts much like a flame. Make sure to keep your fingers away from the arc and always point the lighter away from yourself and others. Now you are ready to light whatever it is that you need.

C. USB Lighters are Wind-Resistant

If there’s wind present, a USB lighter will still work. Because there is no open flame, the wind will not blow out the arc before you can light your campfire or outdoor grill. Some electric lighters, like the Pocket Lighter-Season 2 by the USB Lighter Company, have a double arc for quicker and easier lighting. 

D. USB Lighters Don’t Produce Smoke

USB lighters are perfect for indoor use because they don’t produce smoke. This makes them great for lighting birthday, ceremonial or fragrant candles in your home, church, or office.  

Following these simple guidelines, you can safely and easily light whatever you need with your USB lighter. Practice proper safety protocols and remember to keep an eye on the charge. USB rechargeable lighters take about 1.5 hours to recharge. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to light any object easily.

Features of USB Lighters

You can buy USB rechargeable lighters in various styles, colors, and sizes. This includes bold and metallic colors. Some pocket-size USB lighters are compact and will fit easily into your pocket or purse. 

Unique lighters, such as the candle lighter and the Motli Light by the USB Lighter Company, are long and slender. These lighters can get into hard-to-reach places like fireplaces. They will also keep your hands far away from the heat and have an easy-to-use on/off switch. 

Some electric lighters, including the Motli Light, have a built-in LED flashlight to help you see in the dark. 


A USB rechargeable lighter is an enjoyable and practical experience. They will last you for decades or even a lifetime. When you own a USB rechargeable lighter, you don’t have to keep buying lighters or replacement fuel. You can charge them using a cord and USB port.
