A lighter is a tiny flame-producing device that may be used to ignite objects like cigarettes, gas stoves, fireworks, candles, or a campfire. It consists of a metal or plastic container containing flammable liquid or pressurized gas, an ignition source, and a means for putting out the flame. Electricity may also be used to power a lighter, which can then be used to ignite a target using an electric arc or heating element.

The earliest lighters were modified flintlock pistols that burned gunpowder. Turkish explorer Evliya Celebi complimented the lighters being produced in Vienna on an Ottoman diplomatic trip to Vienna in 1662: “Enclosed in a sort of tiny box are tinder, a steel, sulfur, and resinous wood.” When struck, the wood bursts into flames, much like a weapon wheel. This will be useful for soldiers who are on the go.” Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner, a German physicist, invented one of the first lighters, known as Döbereiner’s lamp, in 1823. This lighter worked by passing flammable hydrogen gas produced by a chemical reaction inside the lighter via a platinum metal catalyst, causing it to ignite and generate a tremendous amount of heat and light.

Ferrocerium (often mistaken for flint) was patented by Carl Auer von Welsbach in 1903, opening the way for modern lighters. When scratched, it produces a large spark that ignites the gasoline in many lighters and is inexpensive enough to be utilized in disposable items.


Using Carl Auer von Welsbach’s flint, companies like Ronson were able to create practical and easy-to-use lighters. In 1910, the first Pist-O-Liter was released, and in 1913, the company released its first lighter, the “Wonderlite,” which was a permanent match lighter.

During WWl, soldiers began constructing lighters out of empty cartridge boxes. One of the troops discovered a way of putting a windproof chimney top with holes at this time.

In 1932, George Grant Blaisdell invented the Zippo lighter and business. The Zippo was recognized for its reliability, as well as its “Lifetime Warranty” and “Windproof” marketing. Naphtha was used by the majority of early Zippos.

In the 1950s, butane supplanted naphtha as the favored fuel because it burned more evenly and produced less odor. This led to the invention of piezoelectric spark, which eliminated the need for the flint wheel in some lighters and was used in many Ronson lighters.

France, the United States, China, and Thailand have recently produced the bulk of the world’s lighters.

A saturated cotton wick and fiber packing are used in naphtha-based lighters to absorb the fluid and prevent it from leaking. They have an enclosed lid to prevent the volatile liquid from evaporating and make putting out the fire simpler. The butane gas is measured as it leaves a butane lighter through a valved aperture.
