Rechargeable BBQ Lighters

Use the Unique 'BBQ Dragon' Lighter to Start Any Fire

— May 12, 2013 — Tech
With Summer just around the corner, the weather slowly warming up and people already booking off long weekends like May 24 and July 4th, it can only mean one thing: BBQ grilling season is back. BBQ junkies alike will agree that the hardest part to any fire is maintaining the unruly flames in blustery conditions. Never fear, that's where the 'BBQ Dragon' BBQ lighter and controller comes in.

A hands-free tool with a adjustable body that looks just like hair blow dryer, the 'BBQ Dragon' clips onto BBQs, wood ovens, fire places, wood stoves and smokers. The handy tool doesn't need gas or lighter fluid to function, all you have to do is charge the 'BBQ Dragon' (you can even charge it up using your phone charger!), light a fire and then let the cool blowing air system pump continuous oxygen into your fire. A perfect invention for maintaining a flame's temperature outside on a beach, camping or in the comforts of your own backyard -- you'll never have to worry about your fire dying out.
