Portfires x 4
A Pack of 4 individual portfires costing less than 75p per portfire.
If you have ever had the problem of trying to light fireworks and the lighter just wont do it then I cant reccommend strongly enough that you start using portfires to end any lighting problems.
Each portfire has a burn time of around 3-4 minutes.

Great for selection boxes and multipacks
These things are better for lighting selection box contents and multipack fireworks than the pathetic shitty crappy tapers / safety lighters that adorn them : they regularly go out and often need frequent relighting whereas with portfires they stay LIT and keep on going with quicker ignition of fuses ensuring a tighter swifter show and a more enjoyable display. Useful tip - tape the end of the handle to cheap poundshop garden sticks and light your fireworks this way, there are two main advantages ;
(a) They keep your hand away from the hot flame (they burn down like a cigarette dropping hot ash as they go which also can cause burns,
and (b) They keep your body at arm's length away from the fuse and stop you leaning over the firework too!
Afterwards the remains can be burnt up on a garden bonfire or in a chiminea or incinerator.
Good pice of kit
Nice pice to light your fireworks so don't have to mess about with lighters around the firework in rain are wind.
Portfires are a fantastic way of lighting fireworks if you don't have the cash to stretch to a Rothenburger. They don't go out in the wind or rain either, which is another advantage. The only issue with these ones is they give off a horrible sulphur smell, which if it gets into your throat is pretty horrid. But other than that, very good.
For the occasional firers
Portfires are good for lighting fireworks. They work even when the weather is bad they usually stay alight.
For £3.99 as well, you only usually need one per display.
Good for occasional firers but if you're a real enthusiast I would recommend a rothy (Rothenberger Super Fire 2)
these are essential if you havent joined the rothernberge club to keep you display flowing these are a must
If you don't want to splash out on a Rothy
These are a must for anyone (without a Rothy) firing fireworks, they are simply brilliant. Forget using a smoldering rope, a lighter or even a smoking cigarette. These are wind proof and a real must have.
If you've lit fireworks before you know it can be a pain in the bum with the weather.
The wind blowing puts your lighter out every time you light it and all the time the rain is dampening your spirits well worry no longer! Buy a pack of these and your troubles will disappear. These are easy to light igniters that last a couple of minutes meaning stress free firework lighting for all! If you use a lighter now, buy some of these and you'll never go back!
