This is the first arc lighter I have ever used and so far I am very impressed. I plugged it in and let it charge and it was ready to use. I like the fact the it stays lit for 10 secs. The fact that it is rechargeable is great. You never have a dead lighter again, as long as you charge it. Its very cute, and easy to use. We do a lot of camping so this will be great to have around with it being windproof also.
My only con would be that it being an arc and not a flame lighter is that you can be limited to what you light.
