    If they made this for your phone would you buy it?

    I was about to go off on that case, but being a smoker and having had those times when the lighter wouldn't work, or couldn't be found.... well maybe it ain't such a stupid idea!

    I agree, that's pretty ingenious.

    I don't smoke, but even I think this is a fairly good idea. However, it may be a little too late as I know many are making the move to those e-cigarette devices

    Ok, I smoke and I can see how this could be handy in a pinch. However, Idk that I'd actually want to hold my entire phone that close to my face to light one.

    Good to know it's got potential to help you start a fire in a survival scenario though.

    Also, good to see they've improved on the original, which had no lock to keep it from activating in your pocket.

    I could see with all these people packing "get out of town" or "shtf" bags..I could see the market for a phone case that could turn your phone into more of a tool than just something you can call, text or get tracked by...LOL. I doubt any serious individual would buy it for that purpose..but all the recreational smokers and such..I'm sure they would..please remove phone before any hard core use of the lighter. .lol

    I have my SHTF bags, but I'd have to get an iPhone to use it...
    So probably not on my list...
    And I'd have to start smoking again... Nope..

    Someone check the fine print, maybe this was marketed by Snoop.... He's got his own line of smokables & edibles now... It was inevitable.

    Idk. Back when I used to partake, years ago, I can't say that I ever really tried an electronic lighter, but I still think I'd prefer an open flame lighter. More versatile for sure.
