  • Product Description

    We at Gadgetshop HQ look forward to our team buiding camping trips to the Forest of Dean every year. Inevitably, we find ourselves trapped in the middle of nowhere in a storm or a blizzard, huddled together and vowing to never ever relate the situation to anyone. Ever. That's why we searched high and low for this little gadget to help avoid such awkward situations. Magfire is a new firestarter that has been developed by survival experts to work trouble free after getting wet, in a storm and below freezing point. Glowing sparks developed by a single strike will make a campfire, light your gas barbecue and stove. When traditional matches are long enough in contact with humid air they won't work. Butane lighters don't last long and won't work in a storm, highly humid conditions or in cold weather. Magfire is a practical tool from demanding professional use to backyard barbeques. Just pick it up, give it a strike and you're a twisted firestarter, as my nephew likes to put it.

    I use this as a back up to my butane lighter while backpacking and camping. It has proved invaluable on several occasions when the butane lighter failed.
    There is a bit of a knack to getting the maximum amount of sparks, but this is easily mastered. The best thing about the fire starter is that it works in any weather conditions [although in very strong winds you need to form some sort of small shelter for your tinder]. You do need dry tinder to ignite with the sparks-I carry a small tin of Maya Dust [available from most outdoor shops] which does the trick admirably.
    The item is lightweight but practically indestructible and fits neatly into the bottom of a rucksack. I strongly recommend this fire starter.

    I thought I'd save a few pounds by getting this one, as ever a mistake - should have gone and spent 2 quid more buying the 'army' version over this 'scout' version, .

    Bought in July 10, it wore through and broke by Nov 10 - and not a vast amount of use tbh, the thicker 'army' versions on amazon last me years! so for an extra 2 quid I won't make the mistake of buying one of these again.

    This is an excellent and very effective spark maker ... and combined with a bit of dry tinder (cotton wool or old man's beard) are easy an light to carry.

    I'm no hair shirt camper, and will always carry matches and a lighter, but have on more than a few occasions resorted to the Magfire.

    It would be mean to mark it down on the scraper ... but I prefer to use a blade to give me a better grip (especially when using gloves).

    All in all, an essential bit of kit that goes everywhere with me

    This product work very well. only you need to have dry tree bark or some fine, flufy tree pieces to start the fire and than you can add the small sticks and woods to build up your fire. It is a realy good thing to carry while walking in woodlands or while camping...

    Some of my holidays include a degree of hiking off the beaten track. This fire starter will always be in my daysack alongside swiss army knife and first aid kit. I have needed to use the latter items in the past. I hope I am never in the position of needing this in an emergency, but I have confidence that it will do the job.
    I tested it and it quickly ignited the a small piece of cotton wool from the first aid kit. A quick squirt of alcohol hand wash onto some kindling ignited with the second shower of sparks from this amazing bit of kit.

    These devices are pretty much all the same. This one is no better or worse than the others.
    It takes a couple of minutes to get used to it but it works pretty well, even in bad weather, even with cold hands.
    Outside, you do need something which catches light easily though, dry tinder, a warm gas can gas etc.
    I notice this has increased in price since I bought it, so shop around the various Amazon partners.
    It is more robust than flint lighters and you can tell when it's worn out, so no surprises.
    If you have a gas cooker then you should have something like this for standby, especially if you live anywhere remote.
    It's no coincidence that the old definition for the First Humans was the first of the Species to start using fire!!

    I find the fire starter reletively (to matches) difficult to use. There is a technique needed to use one of these but when you get it, the fire starter can be a great buy especially for scouts - it is safe and can be used in just about any condition.

    Well I'm no Ray mears but I have a feeling he would aprove,the 'magfire'gives out a very strong spark ,it takes about 5 minutes till you get 'The knack',if you venture fourth into the unknown this is a must have!The makers reckon you have about 33,000 lights from this exellent bit of kit so that should do most of us!To sum it up in 4 words'You cant go wrong'.
