what we like

  • Best for those looking for: A long, rechargeable electric lighter for reaching the wicks of deep candles
  • One of the cooler items you can show off to your guests when entertaining
  • Incredibly functional and never need to deal with matches or lighters again
  • Lithium ion battery charges quickly and lasts for hours
  • Easy to light a candle in windy weather
  • Child safety lock at the bottom provides an extra step to take before using
  • Comes in 5 colors

keep in mind

  • Does produce a higher pitched noise while in use which can be tough on some pets with sensitive hearing
  • Need to obviously get the electric current in direct contact with the wick otherwise it won’t light – definitely makes it a bit harder to light products


It’s funny how few people have even heard about electric lighters. Whenever I use one in front of guests, at least one of them immediately asks me for a link to the product. The reason they are so great is:


  • You never have to worry about lighting a match again
  • Burn risk is a lot lower
  • Rechargeable and better for the environment
  • Long shape makes it easier to reach deeper candles


There are hundreds of electric lighters available on Amazon right now with a wide variety of shapes and styles. Most common ones include: arc style, zippo/Bic style and this wand style lighter. All of them are going to function relatively the same performance wise (if we are being honest here: they are probably all designed in the same three Chinese factories). It’s mostly a matter of personal preference and price. This Leejie one has served me well over the years and is my daily go to for lighting our favorite candles. At under $20, it has the ideal shape for lighting candles and also comes with a lithium ion battery which lasts for hours. Makes it a great everyday item to make your life more efficient or a good stocking stuffer for a family member/friend.
