Some lighters are refillable, while others are completely disposable. Some have flames, while others run on electricity. There are many styles of lighters on the market, each with their own unique way of working.

The different types of lighters on the market today include:

1. Flint steel wheel lighter. The steel wheel is made of special steel with teeth on the outer circumference; the flint is made of low-temperature alloy, the ignition point is about 160 ℃, and the calorific value is large. The flint is pressed against the surface of the steel wheel by the spring, and is heated by the friction of the steel wheel during operation, and a flame is generated. This lighter is not as brisk in operation as other lighters, but produces more sparks and has a higher ignition rate.

2. Piezoelectric ceramic lighters. The lighter is equipped with piezoelectric ceramic elements. Under the action of mechanical stress, piezoelectric ceramics are polarized due to the relative displacement of the internal positive and negative charge centers, resulting in the appearance of bound charges with opposite signs on the surfaces of the two ends of the material. Therefore, when the piezoelectric ceramic element is subjected to impact pressure, the mechanical energy is converted into electrical energy, and an instantaneous high-voltage spark is released at the tip to ignite the fuel.

3. Electric arc lighters. Arc lighters use a spark to create a plasma conduit between electrodes, which is then maintained by a lower voltage. The arc is then applied to a flammable substance to cause ignition.

4. Battery lighter. Use integrated circuit batteries or ordinary batteries as energy sources. When the circuit of the capacitor and the transformer is turned on, a high-voltage spark is generated, igniting the gas.

5. Solar lighter. After being irradiated by sunlight or other light, its photocell converts light energy into electrical energy and stores it in the battery. When in use, the battery charges the capacitor, and the booster coil instantly generates a high anti-electromotive force, which releases an electric spark between the insulating diodes and ignites the gas.

6. Microcomputer lighter. The lighter is equipped with a battery-powered microcomputer, and the integrated circuit of the microcomputer has an automatic circulation system. When operating, turn on the circuit to ignite. Once the flame is extinguished by the wind, it will automatically re-burn.

7. Gas lighter: its standard pressure exceeds 104kPa at 24°C.

8. Post-mix lighter: This type of gas lighter burns air and fuel after ignition.

9. Pre-mixed lighter: The gaseous fuel and air of this type of gas lighter are mixed first and then burned.

10. Disposable lighters: These lighters are filled with fuel when they are made and cannot be recharged.

11. Refillable lighters: These lighters can be refilled with an external gas tank or inserted into a new fuel tank.

12. Adjustable lighter: This type of lighter provides a device that can freely adjust the flame height.

13. Self-adjustable lighters: These lighters provide a device that automatically raises the flame height when going from upright to tilted.

The above are not all types of lighters, and there are other ignition principles and types of lighters. And the shape of the current lighters are also very novel and peculiar. The entertainment of lighters is getting stronger and stronger, and it is not only used for ignition, but more and more people buy them for the uniqueness and multi-function of lighters.
