Put a Solar Spark Lighter in Your Survival Kit

Here’s something that’s simple, fun, and a great way to start kindling without anything but the sun. For a few dollars you can put a solar spark lighter in your survival kit or backpack.

The solar spark lighter has been around for decades, and the concept is simple. It’s a pocket-sized, stainless steel parabolic mirror that focuses the sun’s rays on a precise focal point. Use it to start leaves or paper on fire. Light a cigarette. Burn incense. Point it at the sun and it lights in seconds.

It’s great to take along when you go camping, hiking, backpacking, boating, or anywhere you’ll have unobstructed sunshine. And that’s an important point. The solar spark lighter won’t work with any lighting but the sun.

If the sun goes behind the clouds, pull out your Zippo lighter or other fire starter. It’s a good idea to have more than one fire starting option.

The Solar Spark Lighter and Survival Tool from Sundance Solar gets high marks from reviewers, so how can you go wrong by having one or more? Click on its name wherever you see it linked in this post and place your order on the page where it’s featured.

Get as many as you can use and be ready to start a fire with that big fire in the sky with your Solar Spark Lighter and Survival Tool.
