Just in time for the holiday season, Vector-KGM has released several new color options for five of its lighters.

Three lighters, the Throne, the Jetz and the Empire, are all adding the same five new color options: copper satin, metallic black, metallic blue, gray crackle matte, and red lacquer.

The Vector Throne is a pocket-friendly quad flame torch that comes with a built-in cigar punch and large flame adjustment wheel, while the company promises full flame functionality at elevations up to 12,000 feet. It measures 3.05 x 1/45 x 0.80 inches, weighs 3.7 ounces, and comes with an MSRP of $35.

The Vector Empire is also a pocket-friendly quad flame torch that works at elevations up to 12,000 feet and which comes with a built-in cigar punch. It measures 2.96 x 1.32 x 0.81 inches, and has an MSRP of $29.95.

The Vector Jetz is a single flame torch that is one of a small group of lighters to offer a built-in bottle opener, which folds out from one side of the body. The lighter also offers a large flame adjuster wheel, and measures 3.01 x 1.00 x 0.62 inches. The company says that it works at an altitude of up to 12,000 feet. It also has a suggested retail price of $29.95.

The Vector Alpha gets four new color options; the first three, copper satin, sparkle blue, and Prizm, each come with a black anodized cap, while a gray crackle matte option rounds out the new offerings. The Alpha is a triple-flame torch that offers a extra large fuel window, and is also said to work at elevations up to 12,000 feet. It measures 2.92 x 1.52 x 0.90 inches, and is priced at $35 per lighter.

Finally, the Vector Apex, a pocket-friendly triple torch, gets two new color ways, copper satin and gray crackle matte. The lighter offers a tinted fuel window and large flame adjuster, and works at elevations up to 12,000 feet. It measures 3.08 x 1.34 x 1.05 inches and also has an MSRP of $35.

All of the new options are currently available via Vector-KGM’s website and have begun shipping to retailers. Each comes with the company’s no-proof warranty.

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 Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
