For the cigar smoker looking for a bit more power from their lighter but not wanting to go overboard with the flames, The Lotus Group/Integral Logistics is releasing a trio of new dual-flame torch lighters at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

Lotus Hercules

The Lotus Hercules (MSRP $39.95) is an all-metal design that features a single action ignition as well as a fold out punch, fuel window and large flame adjustment wheel on the bottom. It’s being released in four finishes: gunmetal,  black/chrome, dark copper/gunmetal and light gunmetal/dark gunmetal.

Lotus Ranger

The Lotus Ranger is a side squeeze lighter with single action ignition and twin pinpoint flames and all metal housing. It too comes with a fold out cigar punch, fuel window and large flame adjuster. It is being offered in two finishes, black/polished gunmetal and chrome stain/polished gunmetal, both with an MSRP of $39.95.

Lotus Mercury

Finally, the Lotus Mercury (MSRP $29.95) puts a dual flame format in a compact metal housing, with a single action ignition, fold out cigar punch, fuel window and large flame adjuster.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
