MIL-A-8625 Type III Clear Natural Anodized Aluminum ( extremely hard at 60-70 on the Rockwell C scale )
After numerous responses and requests with the Standard Peanut and Split Pea Lighters our staff members wondered what could be done to make it better. The answer is make it bigger and also increase the size of the spark wheel for even easier use with and without gloves. These two changes make a dramatic difference in extended run time and versatility of use in any condition. The XL Peanut Lighter is also perfect for extended trips where you will need more than a few days of firestarting.
Make sure to keep one in your: First Aid Kit, EDC / Prepper Bag, Car, Kitchen, Backpack…
Remember you will always need a knife and fire to survive in the wilderness.
Here's what we came up with to improve it:
Great lighter. Solid and well built, just like the regular Peanut lighter. Getting a little too big to have the word "peanut" in the name though!
Love this lighter, works great as a "candle" too. My only complaint is the o-ring seal was not true at first. I will say the o-ring has expanded a bit over time and fits more snug.
As good as the original peanut and split pea are...this one is better. I like the larger wheel and one hand operation of this size. Great product.
I love these peanut lighter XL's. I put a bit of paracord around it and wear on my neck. With the aluminum I dont know its there till I need it. Holds fuel for a long long time (at least a month). I had the stainless steel but gave it to my buddy cause he's a good friend and was fascinated by it. I like my new aluminium one even better because of it's lighter weight.
Have had this almost 2 years now and it is amazing. Use it for backpacking and everything else that needs burning . Ended up getting 3 more for my buddies who also love them. Very durable fuel last forever and lights reliably.
