Vector-KGM Releases Three New Lighters


In recent weeks, Vector-KGM has released a trio of new lighters to retailers, the Maxtech, the VBoom and the Vectorch 1.


The most recent lighter to hit stores is the Maxtech, a large single flame torch that the company says equals the power to two standard torch flames. It comes in a cylindrical body that measures  six color options: gunmetal satin, rose gold satin, black matte, blue matte, red matte and yellow matte, each priced at $35. Additionally, the company says that the lighter will work at altitudes up to 12,000 feet.


The release of the Maxtech comes on the heels of the release of the VBoom, an interestingly shaped single flame torch lighter. It offers a push button ignition with the ability to lock the flame in place, and measures 1.77″ x 1.41″ x 6″ while checking in at 0.4 pounds. It is offered in six colors: silver, gray, copper gold, black, blue and red, all of which come in a rubber matte finish and an MSRP of $45

Along with the VBoom, the company shipped the Vectorch 1 as a follow-up to the Vectorch 2, which was released on Sept. 9. As the name implies, the Vectorch 1 is a single flame lighter, while the Vectorch 2 is a dual flame torch. Both are angled head designs that measure 2.3″ x 3.5″ x 7.5″, feature push button ignitions with a flame lock button, and are guaranteed to work at altitudes up to 12,000 feet and are priced at $50. The Vectorch 1 is available in six colors: silver, gray, copper gold, black, blue and red, all in a rubber matte finish.

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.
