We know that you have gone out to buy a good plasma lighter for how great they are and also for the convenience of being able to charge them via USB but we also know that you have found a couple of disappointments. It has also happened to us and several users have told us.
We have listened to and experienced everything with plasma burners, from those that are too cheap to be discharged excessively fast and take hours to reload, to others that are complicated to use and you almost need three hands to light a cigarette. Oh and not to mention those who sell you as if they were windproof and turn off with the slightest breeze.
Attending to the requests of many users, we decided to look for the most economical and good quality models of the market, without inadequate arches and with durable materials.
What is the best plasma lighter?
In case you are still not very aware of how they work or what are their advantages, we tell you that they are excellent for the environment because they work without gas and do not use any type of flammable liquid. That’s why you do not have to change them as soon as they’re over, so they’re also cheaper. Besides, they are perfect for lighting cigars, candles, gas stoves and more.
Apart from that, they can come in models of a single arch or double arch. If you want to light large cigars or candles, the most recommended is to choose one of two arches located at the top and thin design. That way they are much easier to use.
It is worth noting that the rechargeable battery will last longer in single-arc models. Anyway, in our comparative list you will find variety and the best models, and even lighters classified as wind resistant.
1. AngLink Electric Arc Lighter
The AngLink electric lighter is perfect for lighting cigarettes, burners, barbecues and grills, whatever you want and within reach of its double electric arc.
The coolest thing about this USB lighter is the shape of the electric arc, instead of being two electrodes on each side that generate the arc, it is generated by four electrodes placed as a square on the piece, this generates an electric arc that sticks up.
It is a great advantage since instead of having to go through the object you want to light inside the lateral arc, with the AngLink you only have to approach it from above and voila, instant fire.
The design is not something outstanding; it is a square-shaped lighter, quite light and with a very minimalist design in metallic black. It is a very discreet option to look good on any occasion.

How does a plasma lighter work?
The plasma lighters are electronic devices that generate an electrical arc strong enough to burn anything it touches, including your skin, so you should be very careful and keep it away from children.
The lighters plasma using the principle of Tesla to operate, they use a battery art that is rechargeable, and two or four electrodes that are located at a safe distance, with pressing the power button the released electric battery and this is conducted by the electrodes, thus showing the small luminous electric arc that replaces the fire.
- Depending on the number of electrodes, the number of arcs can be shown, since the electrical charge is connected from one electrode to another if there are two electrodes you can only have one electrical arc, if there are four electrodes you will get two electrical arcs and so on. Currently, only four-electrode double arc electric igniters are used.
