This $6 electric lighter can be recharged via USB every time it goes dead

Quit wasting your money on disposable lighters and switch to a USB rechargeable option instead. You can find some great models on Amazon for less than $20 apiece, and if you're lucky enough to snatch one that's been discounted, you might only have to spend close to what a few disposables would cost you anyway. Take this TECCPO Double Arc USB Rechargeable Lighter (opens in new tab) for instance. It sells for just under $17 on average, yet thanks to a current sale, you can enter code OHBRWI6W during checkout to pick one up for only $6.39. For less than $10, you'll have a lighter that can be recharged every time it goes dead.

TECCPO Double Arc USB Rechargeable Lighter (opens in new tab)

If you're tired of tossing out disposable lighter after disposable lighter, it's time to try something new for a change: a lighter you won't throw away for years to come.

TECCPO's lighter features double plasma arcs that generate two heat beams that make it easier to spark up with. It's equipped with a 280mAh lithium battery that lasts for about 100 sparks on a single charge, and there's also an LED power indicator which shows its charging status and remaining battery level. Electric arc lighters like these are flame-less and windproof so you'll have an easier time using it even outdoors. You'll never need fluid for it either.

A micro USB cable is included that you can use to power this lighter back up whenever its internal battery dies. However, you'll need a USB wall adapter (opens in new tab) handy as one isn't included with its purchase.
