At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

Fire is at the heart of camping. Your camp fire keeps you warm, repels the bugs, and draws people in for meals and late night conversation. It even helps us forget about our distracting phones with its dancing colors and flickering flames. Who needs Facebook when you have FIRE?

Matches and lighters are the obvious go-to’s for fire starting. So The Dyrt team was intrigued when we discovered a fire starter at Outdoor Retailer that is neither.

The TekFire LED Fuel-Free, Windproof Lighter Doesn’t Use a Flame

The TekFire LED Fuel-Free Lighter from UST (Ultimate Survival Technologies) is a unique device that lights fires with no flame or butane. You don’t have to worry about your matches getting soggy, or your lighter running out of fuel. It’s a windproof lighter and it works at any altitude.

It also comes with a handy light for those times when you wait a little too long to start the fire, as well as a wrist lanyard that unwinds into three feet of all-purpose paracord.





Our curiosity is ignited. And hopefully, so is your fire.

The anthology was definitely a scam to get her parents to buy a bunch of anthologies, but she's still pretty proud of her panda poem. When she's not at her computer, she's (hopefully) outside, hiking or camping with her dog.
