Flex Neck Utility Lighter from Zippo {Review + Giveaway}- CLOSED



We like to do a lot of cooking when we go camping. Whether we cook using a camp stove or a campfire, this is something that I thoroughly enjoy. To light the propane in the stove or the wood for the fire, I usually take along one of our long-neck candle lighters. However, this product was not made for reaching under the eye of a camping stove, or into the stacked wood of a campfire.

Recently, I learned about a lighter that is made for the outdoors. Introducing the Flex Neck Utility Lighter from Zippo. Zippo knows that grills, lanterns, tiki torches, and fireplaces require a certain degree of precision when being lit. That is where the Flex Neck Utility Lighter comes in. The flexible extended neck can be bent to fit perfectly into the opening on most grills and lanterns. The lighter has many additional features that make it the ideal outdoor lighting source for all of your adventures:


  • Wind-resistant dual flame technology
  • Flexible extended neck, topped by a slim, powerful nozzle, easily fits all lighting openings
  • Available in two finishes; satin silver and rubberized flat black
  • Rugged metal construction
  • Advanced ignition system
  • Fuel-level indicator
  • Adjustable flame
  • Patented child-resistant safety button

We have had the opportunity to test out this revolutionary lighter on a recent camping trip. The lighter comes without fuel inside, so before heading out we filled it with butane. I was honestly nervous to fill my own lighter at first. However, it was an easy and quick experience.

The Flex Neck Utility Lighter was the ideal way to light our camp stove. Whenever we go camping, we usually borrow my mom’s vintage camp stove. It cooks perfectly, but can be quite difficult to light. We bent the neck of the Flex Neck Utility Lighter to the ideal angle. The extended neck easily fit perfectly into the space under the eye of the camp stove. Within seconds, the propane was lit and we were ready to start cooking.

The Flex Neck Utility Lighter will be coming along on all of our future camping trips. It truly makes lighting campfire and camping stoves a breeze!
