Glovion Compact Style USB Electronic Lighter
So the box isn't quite as impressive as some of the other lighters from the Glovion range, but once unpacked you probably wont need it again anyway. It is of course the lighter itself that is the product on offer, and what a lovely lighter it is too!
With a beautiful sleek look and a very reflective shine people will immediately be asking you where you got it! Smaller in size and lighter in weight than some of the other offerings, it fits perfectly into your pocket without any fuss. And when it's there you can hardly even feel it.
The one I have is a nice black/graphite colour and it has a gold circle attached to the lid which covers the heating element that you will use for cigarette ignition. I think the best feature of this unit is that it has no buttons. It is powered on automatically as soon as the lid opens. This is great of course because it means that you can hold it any way you like and so are not forced to hold it in any particular position.
At the bottom you have a micro USB port for charging (lead supplied in box) and a charging light to indicate its status. Red means it's charging, and green means its full. The light also will illuminate every time you open the lid.
If you are a cigar smoker then the element might be a bit small but I cannot be sure as I don't have any to test it out. For normal cigarettes, mini cigars, and rollies though it is perfect.
The lighter measures exactly H- 67mm, W- 29mm, D- 7mm. So it is as thin as your smart-phone, if not thinner!
The USB lead is white in colour and measures around 30cm. It seems of good quality and to be of sturdy construction.
All in all I am very impressed with it and I think I will be using this as my main lighter for a while. I spend a lot of time at my PC so being able to charge it through a USB port is very convenient for me. It saves me having to keep buying lighter fluid. And the sleekness of it means I can carry it around with ease.
