So you’re out in the wilderness, Les Stroud style, and you need a fire. Stat. You would have bought a lighter but they didn”t allow them on the plane. Fortunately, you remembered to pack your Pilot Slider USB Rechargeable Lighter! Available for $19.99 at ThinkGeek, $11.99 at Amazon and reportedly (from reviews) for less than five bucks in the checkout line at Walmart, it is nothing more than a rechargeable battery connected to a heating coil. Boasts 150 lights at a full charge and is weatherproof. But leaping from a cliff into a pool below to escape the wildlife in your area will probably kill it. Sure, you could keep a battery and some steel wool in two separate baggies but this is a sure-fire waA y to get that tinder lit when your chips are down. Available at ThinkGeek and Amazon.
