Vector has released a trio of new lighters to retail that were first unveiled at the recent IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

The Vector Viking is a four-torch lighter and features a design that merges four jets into one powerful flame to quickly light any cigar. Tucked into the bottom of the lighter are a folding punch cut and draw poker, while the side features a large fuel gauge window. It is available in five finishes: Black Matte, Black Crackle Matte, Hi-Polish Chrome, Chrome Satin and Titanium Satin, each with a suggested price of $75.00.

The Vector Radar is a wind-resistant triple torch lighter designed to be used at high elevations, up to 10,000 feet above sea level. It features a folding punch cutter as well and comes in six colors: Metallic Blue, Black Matte, Black/Chrome 2-Tone, Chrome Satin, Black Crackle Matte and Gunmetal Satin. Each retails for $35.00.

Finally, the Vector Minitro is a high-powered adjustable tabletop lighter that can operate as both a soft flame and torch. Its large capacity, 0.35 fluid ounce tank allows for up to 80 minutes of burning time. It comes with an MSRP of $50.00, and is available in Silver/Chrome, Black Matte/Chrome, Orange, Red, Yellow, Blue, Metallic Blue and Purple finishes.

The company also unveiled the new X60 packaging format for their butane fuel, a 3.61fl oz. mini can designed to be used on the go. As with their existing formats, Vector’s butane fuel has been filtered a minimum of five times for purity.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
