Introducing SPARKR – All-Weather Plasma Lighter by Power Practical

Invention and Utility Unite with New All-Weather Multi-Tool Plasma Lighter

Power Practical, makers of award-winning innovative products and solutions for active lifestyles and everyday living, is proud enter new territory with the unveiling of the Sparkr and Sparkr mini Plasma Lighters. The Sparkr all-weather flameless lighter with an integrated flashlight is a sleek, practical and durable gadget designed for the rigors of backcountry adventure and the convenience of everyday carry.

Power Practical, well known for the company’s award-winning Power Pot™ and success on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, is excited to unveil the company’s latest feat of electrical engineering: the Sparkr ($49.99) and Sparkr Mini ($29.99). Inspired by a 6ft-tall Tesla Coil developed in the team’s free time, the Sparkr is a more practical pocket-sized version that delivers a small but concentrated electrical current between two electrodes. The result is a windproof, water resistant, lighter that delivers a hotter and more targeted point of ignition than a traditional open flame.


The Sparkr is designed with an electric plasma lighter on one end and a 150 lumen flashlight / lantern on the other. The built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery can power the Sparkr’s flashlight for up to 4 hours on high (16 hours on low), and deliver hundreds of plasma ignitions. The Sparkr is made with durable anodized aluminum body and comes with an ergonomically molded thumb grip with rubberized on/off buttons. A quick twist lighter cap protects the plasma lighter element when not in use or may be used to transform the flashlight into a light-diffusing lantern.


Power Practical is also releasing the Sparkr Mini, a smaller sidekick of less than half the size and with an x-shaped plasma lighting element. The compact size, lightweight durable construction, and all-weather ignition, makes the Sparkr Mini the ideal everyday day carry companion.

Both the Sparkr and Sparkr Mini may be purchased ahead of production on Kickstarter at limited time special pricing.
