At the 2020 Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) trade show, JetLine revealed a new high-powered tabletop lighter called the Protector that it looks to have on store shelves in May.
It’s a single flame, high powered torch lighter 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.
The Protector will have an MSRP of $60 and will be available with red or yellow metal over a black plastic base.
Update (May 29, 2021) — JetLine has changed the name of the lighter to the Protection, and has announced it is now scheduled to ship in August or September 2021. The company cited numerous delays in manufacturing and freight for the lighter’s delayed release.
