    Great review, and I like it. Don't know of if I'd like it/need it enough to justify the cost over my electric coil lighter...

        John, you need to push that thing down in the charcoal a lot deeper! You should be getting sparks within 5-10 seconds (with a LooftLighter at least). When that end makes contact with the charcoal about an inch deep, they light QUICK! Otherwise, if that is all the faster this lights charcoal, I'll stick with my LL. After 30 seconds or so I'd have a raging fire and starting on ignition spot 2.

        Just my experience.

          I think you are right! I have used it 3 or 4 times now to start fires and it does work better when its pushed in a little deeper. I have had a couple instances where it gets me sparks going in 30 seconds or less.

          Good. I'm glad to hear that it works better when buried deeper because I like the switch idea of this better than the push button on the LL. Thanks for reporting back! And I would say 30 seconds is probably about accurate with KJ lump since it's a little more dense. With Royal Oak or The Good One and some other lumps, they light quicker because they are less dense.

          Naa... it works well It also depends on the size of lump chunks you are pointing it towards... smaller ones get going much faster.

              You know, the more I think about the blow lighter, the more I like it. I liked the concept of the switch vs. a press only button, and I like the idea of a forced air only mode (no heat). One thing I like to do with my LL if I'm cooking hot like for pizzas or steak, is once I have the fire started I put the LL in the air intake, into the firebox under the grate and force air into the cooker to really get a HOT fire and FAST! With air only, that would be great to not use unnecessary heat, and with the switch you won't have to stay lurched over to press the button to keep air coming.

              When my LL craps out, I really think this is what I'm going to get.

                Hey, with this I'll be able to get to a sear in just 13.3 minutes. Can you make it so it fits snugly into the intake vent? Will work better and you won't have to stick it way in the hole. I know it's to start the lump, but using the fan only mode is terrific also. I want one!

                  Does that thing have a cold beer access device built in to the stand?

                    Too big, it looks like there should be an ammo bearer with it.
