What is Brightfire Lighter?

Brightfire Lighter

Brightfire Lighter is a gas powered dual arc torch lighter. According to the producers it is fully refillable and can create a continuous flame with flame adjustability according your needs. They also claim that the lighter lasts a very long time with out having to re-ignite like traditional lighters. Not to mention the tough, military-grade exterior & rubberized plastic which makes it nearly indestructible so it’ll withstand tons of abuse.

Inasmuch as the Brightfire Lighter looks legit, the main concern of this review is to ascertain if it lives up to the hype, and this review would expose all that is needed to know about this product.

My Experience Using The Brightfire Lighter.

I was intrigued by the advertising claim of “gas free” and decided to order it. It however arrived late, two weeks after order. I was however very disappointed when 3 ordinary butane lighters were delivered. I called to complain, and they said no need to return the ones they sent, and they would send the three “gas free” lighters. And lo and behold, a few days later what showed up? THREE MORE BUTANE LIGHTERS! This time, the individual I talked to admitted that they really don’t have that technology and are refunding my money, which is fine with me, since PayPal already did! They don’t want any of the 6 lighters I now have back.

Is Brightfire Lighter Really Worth The Hype?

I wouldn’t say it is worth the hype, but it is not really scam. However it is sold with false advertising. The claims that It is rechargeable is false. It uses butane and the USB Port it came with is just for fancy. It is just a fancy lighter that uses Butane.

  1. I’m calling B.S. on your review and the Brightfire Lighter. I bought one and both you and the brightfire website state that you don’t need to worry about butane,that it’ just needs a charge. 1, mine has no charging port, 2, it requires butane, This is just a pretty well-built Mini torch that have recently semi-replaced traditional lighters such as a Bic Lighter. It would have been really cool if the company did develop a lighter that only needed to be charged electrically. now that would be something I’d want to buy!!

    • March 7, 2024 – they’re still at it. Just saw the ad on a Sony (Samsung) TV. I’d call them if I were you!
      I always read the reviews and buy from companies like Amazon as much as possible because of their return policies.
      Keep in mind many reviews are fake too and many websites are infected with malware or viruses- AV is a must, even on your iPhones!

    • I don’t know what review you read but the one you are responding to clearly states that the brightfire lighter he is reviewing absolutely does NOT work as advertised. He says his has a charger port that does not work and his requires butane, which is not what brightfire advertised. He got a refund for those reasons.

  2. Concerning Bright Fire, I also fell for this false add about a plasma torch. The claims that it was NOT a butane lighter; and that it charges from a USB port. Total lie. it is just like the one I bought from amazon, but for twice the price. I called the dealer and they said they would refund my money if I returned it; but that they could not offer a return label, I would have to pay for the return shipping. Once I found that returning it was as expensive as what I had bought the same thing for from Amazon, I called them again and told them that; and that my next call was to the Attorney General to report the fraud. I was told that I didn’t have to return it; and that I would get my money back; which I did. The false add is still going. Perhaps I should go ahead and call the Attorney General, and report the fraudulent advertising.

  3. ‘Brightfire’ isn’t a torch, it’s a lighter, albeit a fancy one. True it has a USB port. I think it’s just for looks, because it doesn’t seem to do anything. They claim in the ads that it uses ‘plasma arc technology’, and only needs a charge, because it doesn’t use any fuel. However, when placing the order it states on the order review that it’s ‘gas powered’, which is extremely ambiguous as both butane and plasma are types of gas, one is compressed and the other is ionized. THIS ITEM DOES REQUIRE THE USE OF BUTANE!!!

    This product is nice, and I would would have purchased one based on what it TRULY is! Because of the deception, I’m not so sure!

    They claim it’s US made, but ships from China. (It does appear that some have shipped from the US.)

    After all that:
    I gotta wonder about the product and the review. Advertising definitely seems deceptive, to say the least.

  4. False review site. It is NOT a “dual arc torch “. First electricity can not shoot out into the air in the air like a torch, and second the add you have probably seen is a blatant lie, it is just a Butane lighter/torch. Amazon has the same thing for much cheaper.

  5. This is one of the scammiest products I’ve ever come across. First, their video shows what is obviously a gas lighter while claiming it’s a “gas-free fully rechargeable plasma lighter.” As if. Plasma lighters don’t have a flame; they have an arc that shoots from one node to the other. And an electric plasma lighter that could be charged by a 5 volt USB port? Pulleeze. The video even shows the butane filling port, calling it an “inflation port.” Now, if this hasn’t excited you enough, their website is INFECTED BY MALWARE. You go there at your own peril.

  6. It is nothing more than a cigar lighter with a piezo ignitor. It is not new or advanced military technology. Total lie in which they say no fuel is needed.

  7. What’s real BS is that sites like this even exist. They take down people on the dark web for cripes sake! They say if they really want to track you even a VPN won’t protect you. So why don’t they have people show up where these things are shipped from and shut them down? Why aren’t there government people who review these ads and make national announcements about their legitimacy? So we can pay for two foreign wars but we can’t put a stop to this BS advertising & fraud companies? Give me a freaking break. I’m pretty sure it’s government officials who start these companies cuz they stick around for years and never get busted. Our whole country has gone to hell.

  8. I almost bit on this then I got to thinking…….plasma uh….thats not how plasma gets created……especially from a 2 hour 5v usb charge…..then Im thinking…..hey its butane and instead of a piezo like in every other lighter on the market (other than bics or flint based spark ignightors) this uses the usb charge to charge its ignghtor)…like duh that took me about 39 seconds to workout, then I came to this websit and you all confirmed that 1. its a lie, 2. its a scam to get your cc card and 3. they are so full of shit.

    run away people run away.

  9. Thanks for the comments because I almost fell for this too. I got the ad from YouTube 3/14/24 and they offered it at half price for $40. Crazy! Who would pay $80? Plus they used the 1 hour countdown to get the limited sale. geez. We are always seeming to have trouble with lighters so this sounded really nice. Bummer it is false advertising. When Amazon had it for $20 I figured something was up. Thanks again.

  10. TOTAL SCAM! I purchased a ‘rechargeable’ from bright fire, there’s absolutely no connection to charge. However, there’s a connection for butane on the bottom. I contacted the company and they advised they are all out of the rechargeable devices and only have butane refills and offered half ($20) my money back. The return policy is a complete joke so most people probably just accept half a refund and the company still makes out with $20 per item. DO NOT PURCHASE, TOTAL SCAM!

  11. I too fell for the SCAM…the device I received had no USB ports as shown in the ad. This damn device is merely a glorified butane lighter…period and nothing more.

  12. its funny i got scammed i am the buyer beware and i bought a lighter, when after many complaints about shipping delays it arrived as soon as i opened the box and the little how to use card fell out in Chinese. i knew i was scammed. it works but on butane. overpriced lighter. i am a techy guy. i thought cool.! hey where do you leave a review on their sight? there is a load of them from them selves easy way to do it

  13. Yes, I was scammed too. I fell for the rechargeable USB batteries that create over 300 charge uses per charge. Unfortunately the lighter came without a USB port; it has a Butane fill nozzle. And a piezo electric push button ignition switch. Buyer beware, as this new plasma torch technology doesn’t exist and all you will receive is a glorified butane refillable lighter.
