It has been a long time coming, but the newest lighter from JetLine is now shipping to stores.
It’s called the Protection, and yes, its shape is reminiscent of a handgun. The lighter was originally shown off in January 2020 at the Tobacco Plus Expo, but met production and freight delays that kept it from coming out that year. The company reintroduced it at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, now named Protection as opposed to the original name of Protector, slating it for a late summer or early fall release.
As for the lighter, it is a high-powered, single flame tabletop design that can also produce a soft, candle-style flame by moving a small lever on top of the unit. It’s also free-standing with a locking ignition for hands-free use. It is offered in either red or yellow metal over a black plastic base, with both versions having an MSRP of $69.99.
