Vector-KGM is opening up the new year with a pair of new lighters that are due out by the end of January, and both pack a good bit of firepower.

As could be inferred from its name the Ironquad features four torch flames, in this case arranged in an elongated diamond configuration. The company says that the wind resistant torch will work at altitudes of up to 12,000 feet. It also comes with a curved lid that covers the flames that doubles as a cigar rest, while offering a large fuel window on the rear of the lighter and a large flame adjustment wheel on the base of the lighter.

The Vector Ironquad measures 1.37″ x 0.94″ x 3.4″ and is available in six colors: chrome satin, gunmetal satin, black matte, blue matte, yellow matte and red matte, each with an MSRP of $45.


The Warhead is a high-powered, single flame table top lighter that the company says can reach temperatures of up to 2800 F° (1528 C°). It features a large fuel tank and moves the flame adjustment wheel to the top of the lighter, sitting atop the ignition button. It also comes with a removable stand for added stability while using or displaying, and the company says that it, too, will work at elevations up to 12,000 feet.


It measures 4.7″ x 2.7″ x 7.9″, weighs 0.73 pounds and comes with an MSRP of $50. It is available in five colors.

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.
