The makers of the Plazmatic X Rechargeable Lighter sent me one to review. I suppose they liked the fact that a post I wrote ranks well for Top Marijuana Directories and I did pen How To Get a Medical Marijuana Dispensary Into Google Maps on SearchEngineLand. So I guess they thought I might know my way around a lighter…
There’s not much to say about the Plazmatic X other then it is a very cool lighter. Here’s how it works:
- You charge it with a standard USB charging cable. It charges up pretty quickly.
- Once charged, you flip open the top, push the button on the side and two purple laser-like beams cross each other and create a heat source that can burn most anything.
The lighter feels very solid. The build quality of the metal casing is top notch and the feel of flicking the top open is very satisfying in a neo-Zippo kind of way. I found myself flipping it open absent-mindedly for a good five minutes before I stopped myself.
The only downside I could see is that it could be tricky to light something that didn’t fit into the space that emits the beams.
Other than that, having a rechargeable lighter you can plug into your computer or your phone charger is pretty great. The Plazmatic X currently goes for $49.50 on Amazon Prime. If you are in the market for a cool lighter or for a great gadget gift for your friends who use lighters, I highly recommend it
