Solar Powered Lighter

This lighter uses solar power in a decidedly old school way: it's a curved mirror that reflects and focuses the sun's rays into a super hot point. Compact and convenient, it's an ideal survival tool for hiking or backpacking.

A Portugal-based company has reinvented the wheel and created fire from the sun, kind of. This solar-powered lighter doesn't actually create an open flame, but it does create a series of sparks that should be capable of lighting a BBQ grill. So in all reality, it is the environment-friendly lazy man's flint or sparker. The bottom is also a bottle opener! Just $19.
