I was thrilled to read about this product, especially since it doesn't require fuel & can be recharged over USB. I even brought it camping & started several campfires with it.
I'm still figuring out how often I need to charge it, but I charged it before my camping weekend (two nights) and didn't need to recharge it until I returned.
Best product i could spend my money on!
The lighter is sleek, easy to use, and amusing!
