Airlighter 520 - The original

This is the first model we introduced. It features the patented flame and fan function that all Airlighters include as well as a rechargeable battery, built-in flashlight and 3-position folding handle. Perfect for someone who lights several fires a week. At 20" in length, it is the largest Airlighter available.

Airlighter 420 - 3 color options

This model is half the volumetric size of the 520. Of course it has the patented flame and fan function that all Airlighters include and runs on 3 x AA batteries. The lighter weight and smaller size make it a great household fire starter and our choise for camping. Available in black, white and orange.

NEW! All Natural Starters

Harvested from fallen pine trees, these are the best fire starters nature has to offer. We source these from forests in North America which helps to remove fuel that would otherwise feed potential forest fires. In combination with Airlighters, these make fire lighting easy and eco-friendly.

Most Frequently asked question

Are Airlighters safe to use directly on food?

Absolutely! They use chef grade butane and can be great for searing meats, melting sugars (think creme brulee), browning cheese, warming marshmellows for smores and more. Get creative!
