Looking to purchase a new flameless lighter? Not sure where to look? It may benefit you to read over several model reviews to get an idea of what you can expect, what to look for, and why.
But not all flameless lighters reviews are the same. Some tend to be sponsored, while others are filled with bias opinion from people who don’t know much about flameless lighters to begin with.
That’s why we’ve lined up worthwhile places to conduct your search. Let’s take a look.
That’s right, niche websites. That means websites that specialize in discussing flameless lighters. The reason why these websites are a goldmine for research is because they specialize in discussing a topic from every possible angle. They know what to look for in a flameless lighter, because that’s all they write/talk about on the website.
Furthermore, these websites will often do the heavy lifting for you. If you want to know what the top models are, how much each costs, and why dual arc is better than single arc, these websites are sure to help you on your way. All without having to waste countless of time on Google searches, reading conflicting information.
These websites are the ones that sell a variety of products to consumers. Websites like Amazon and eBay. The thing about the reviews on these websites is that often times people will take their own photos of the products and explain their own experiences. If they didn’t like something, if it broke, if it didn’t look anything like the listing, you’ll know.
You’ll know before you buy.
The only drawback about marketplace reviews is that many of them are paid reviews. If that is the case, most will admit to this all the way at the bottom of their review. If it does, try to take the information with a grain of salt. While some of these sponsored reviews are honest, others highlight the good and omit the negatives.
Official Manufacturer Websites
Sure, it’s in their best interest to shed light on the positive characteristics of their products, but official manufacturer websites will answer most questions you may have. Questions like how big it is, how many sparks it offers, what the recharge time is, and how many arcs it has.
This makes it the ideal first stop in the research process, since it can help get an idea of what you do what, and what you don’t. From there, research further with marketplace and niche website reviews, since they’ll be forward about any flaws and terrible experiences.
Just be mindful, unless you already know about flameless lighters, and have a general idea of what to look for, you might be tempted to purchase from an official website. These sites offer the best possible portrayal of their product, as they should, but it can lure unknowledgeable buyers into making a wrongful purchase. Do your homework first, you won’t regret it.
