Five Best Camping Lighters That Won’t Fail You While Camping

Updated on September 18, 2010

One of the most important things you have to do when you go camping is to make a fire. A fire is important since it’s what you will need to prepare your food as well as keep you warm at night. It also helps keep wild animals away.

However, lighting a fire outdoors is different from lighting a fire indoors. Out there, you’ve got the wind to knock out the flames. Try lighting a match at an open window, that’s pretty much like it and it isn’t amusing at all. You can try making a campfire with ordinary matches or lighters and count how many times you’ll be swearing from disappointment or you can bring along a reliable camping lighter and let it save your breath.

Camping lighters are thus called because of their qualities that make them tougher in the outdoors. Because the wind there is stronger, these lighters are designed to also work harder against it. Camping lighters generally have solid bodies and strong flames – stronger than your average lighter so they can withstand whatever weather you’ll be facing. These lighters are also more dependable when it comes to camping emergencies.

If you have taken your pick of camping tents, bought the best camping equipment you can find and banked on the trustiest camping survival kits, why settle for anything less than a real camping lighter? Here’s a list of the best camping lighters that you can bring on your outdoor vacation that can really help you build your fire without giving you a hot head.
