The Sparkr has a number of safety features that we believe are sufficient for preventing unwanted burns.
1. The button to activate the lighter requires 3 clicks to activate, then a 4th click and hold to turn the lighter on. The lighter will turn off as soon as you release the button.
2. When in flashlight or lantern mode, the Sparkr will not activate. This is to prevent an accidental activation when the Sparkr is hanging in lantern mode and the cap is on the flashlight end rather than covering the lighter head.
