Bro, do you even smoke?

Smokers, prepare to look even cooler than normal when you’re smoking.

Instead of lighting your smoke with a namby-pamby Bic or a holier-than-thou Zippo, you could be harnessing the power of the sun! Imagine its rays streaking toward Earth like a comet trying to catch a bus, collecting in a momentous joyfulness on a small, reflective dish – that dish attached to a weird springy, coily thing that itself is attached to your unlit cigarette.

Moments later…

*WHOOSH!!!* Your cigarette blazes to life with a quick whiff of burning tobacco leaves, the heat soon drawn into your lungs although the entire process feels like an eternity. And moments later – again, an eternity – the sweet coursing of nicotine surges through your bloodstream like a lawn dart with a chip on its shoulder, leaving you with the strength and dexterity of a dozen non-smoking mortals.

Five minutes later: break’s over. Time to go back to entertaining toddlers and their mothers at the paint-your-plate store.

This thing costs $8 from Amazon and has a lone two-star review. Oh, and it can be used as a make-up mirror, too!

Those were available in the 70's from a novelty company in PA.

Solar powered cigarette lighter?  I was using one when I was a teenager, I called it a "magnifying glass".  Worked well and was easier to carry than this weird looking dish.
