Works like a Car Lighter

This little gadget has me totally intrigued! This Zippo-resembling lighter has no flame, and charges via USB port. The silver lighter is intended to function like a regular lighter, but without the hazards posed by an actual flame.

So what good is it? Well, if you're a smoker, it'll do the trick by lighting cigarettes with resistance coils, just like a car lighter.

Branded by logos from the Kool cigarette company, it goes beyond sparking smokes, the USB also containing some flash memory. Unfortunately, it's still only in concept stage, but looks pretty nifty nonetheless. Stats for Flameless USB Zippo Trending: Older & Warm
