Vector-KGM is expanding its Icon lighter series this fall with a pair of new options: the Icon II and Icon III.
The Icon series is Vector-KGM’s flagship for lighters, combining a traditional butane torch lighter with a rechargeable battery, as well as a touch screen sensor ignition. It debuted in 2018 with the original Icon, a triple flame torch lighter priced at $80 with the flames arranged in a straight line and the outer flames angled in towards the central one. It also offers large fuel vents to ensure optimal ignition and faster cooling once the cigar is lit.
The Icon II is an updated triple-flame touch lighter, with three torches arranged in a triangular design to create a more powerful central flame. The ignition panel features a battery charge display, while the back of the lighter features a large fuel gauge window, and ignition is guaranteed at up to 10,000 feet in elevation. It is offered in eight colors: gunmetal satin, black matte, black crackle matte, sparkle blue, sparkle black, red lacquer, chrome satin and prizm, each priced at $85. It began shipping in mid-September.
For even more fire power, the company has announced plans for the Icon III, a quad-flame, tabletop-size torch lighter. In addition to the fourth flame, the Icon III offers a built-in punch cutter. The company has not yet released pricing or a release date but said it will be available in six to eight colors when it does ship.
