How Electric Lighters Work
Electric lighters are composed of 3 main parts and this includes the gas valve and supply, igniter and lastly, the clicking mechanism. As for the igniter, it is actually piezoelectric igniter and consists of piezoelectric material and 2 metal bases. Piezoelectric material is producing the spike of voltage if it’s deformed, pressed or bent while the two other metals are used to collect the voltage.
Its clicking mechanism allows you to press the piezoelectric material fast and hard and then, a huge amount of voltage but small electrical current is produced. The voltage produced is approximately 10,000 volts and the metal collects it and use the wire that is then carried on the top of lighter where there’s a spring that’s apart for at least 1cm from the wire. A spark jumps from the wire to spring due to the very high voltage created. On the other hand, the moment you click the mechanism, it is also opening the gas opening at the exact time making the spark from wire to spring turns into fire and stays lightened so long as you’re pressing it.
In comparison to traditional lighters, they get very hot. Because of the fact that it’s an electric lighter, it has no flame and at the same time, can stay longer, making it easier to be used in any direction. This as a result makes such device ideal for small birthday candles without having to melt them before they’re even lit.

Combustible fuel is used in regular lighters while electric lighters are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that can just be recharged like your smart phones. So if you run out of power, all you need to do is to just plug it in and you are good to go.

With regards to candle lighters, there’s no other lighter that can match USB lighters. These are specifically designed to be seen and be within reach all the time, making an ideal decoration for homes too. Electric lighters are also focusing its heat at the tip to create high precision lighting, which eliminates gas buildup where the flame fires up and even burn marks left from top of the flame.
As a matter of fact, electric lighter works in a very simple concept; when the electricity jumps between 2 conducting electrodes at the tip of the lighter, it is producing what is known as electric arc. The air between the electrodes are ionized which create a brilliant visual arc that is producing high heat that allows the users to light up something without rushing up thinking that the lighter’s body might get hot if they press it long enough.
