QuickLight fire starters are compact fire-starting devices that come in packages of 60. These compact packages, which contain a blend of oil and wax, have been deemed capable of starting a fire in any barbecue, woodstove, fireplace, or fire pit, regardless of the weather conditions. Each slim package, with measurements of about an inch long and an inch wide, is purported to be 100 percent waterproof and non-combustible, which means it can be stored or carried almost anywhere.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Prepare Fire

    Before you can use your first QuickLight, you'll have to prepare a fire by adding wood or paper to your woodstove, fireplace, or fire pit, or adding coals to your barbecue. You can also build a fire out of wood or paper directly on the ground, as this type of device will be able to start that type of fire, too.

  2. Place the Device In Fire

    Once your fire is built, toss your fire-starting device onto the fire (someplace near the middle, where it can be quickly reached and lit, is best).

  3. Light Device

    Next, use a match or an electric fire starter to light your QuickLight as if it's the wick of a candle. You can light the device in the middle or at any of the four corners, and it should start emitting a flame within seconds.

  4. Enjoy Heat And Light

    After your fire-starting device has been lit, it'll allow you to enjoy light and heat from the fire it has started for up to a few hours' time. Its flame should be powerful enough to burn through any pieces of wood or paper that you add to your fire, but it should also stay small enough to remain under control. If your fire ever goes out, you can simply add another fire-starting device from your package to it in order to get it going again.

  5. Extinguish Fire (optional)

    If you have to leave the location of your fire before it has died, and it's not covered like a fire in a wood stove or a household fireplace is, it's best to extinguish it. Depending on its strength, you may be able to blow it out, but if not, you can use water.

How It Works

The QuickLight can start a long-lasting fire so quickly since each one contains a particular blend of oil and wax that will enable you to light it like a candle. Like a candle's wick, each one should almost instantly light up once a match is applied to it. Along the same lines, its flame should keep burning through the morning, afternoon, or evening like a candle's flame would at dusk or in the darkness.


  • Very Compact

    All QuickLights are the same size, and all are very compact. Along with being about an inch long and an inch wide, each one has less than a quarter inch of depth. While you're holding one in your hand or carrying it in your pocket, it'll feel as if you're carrying something as small as a baby wipe you'd use to sanitize your hands in your car.

  • Come In Sets Of 60

    These small fire-starting devices come in packages of 60, so even if you start two fires in a day, one package may last you for a month. Each entire package is only about the size of a bag of potato chips, which means one of them won't take up much space in your home or vehicle.

  • Waterproof

    It's specified that each QuickLight is 100 percent waterproof and can even be lit directly in the water. While you likely won't find yourself having to light it that way, you won't have to worry about its performance if it's raining outside or you're using damp wood to start a fire. Under either of these circumstances, one of these devices should still be able to start a long-lasting fire.

  • Wind Resistant

    As you're actively starting a fire with one of these devices, or if you've already got one going, its materials and flame will be resistant to the effects of wind. A fire that's been started with a match alone may burn out quickly if it gets windy, but that'll be far less likely with the QuickLight used as a starter.

  • Works In Freezing Temperatures

    This type of device will also perform effectively in freezing temperatures—even if it's been frozen itself. Besides rainy conditions, that means you'll be able to use one of them in snowy and icy conditions to give yourself some heat and light from a fire, too.

  • Non-Combustible

    Any QuickLight is completely non-combustible, so you can store these fire-starting devices virtually anywhere in your home or vehicle, no matter what they'll be resting beside. None of them will start a fire unintentionally without being lit.

Positive Points

  • Ideal In Emergencies

    Each of these devices can be lit with a match alone, so they're an ideal thing to have with you in an emergency kit. When your power's out at home, you may have to start a fire in your woodstove, your fireplace, or even your barbecue pit to help keep yourself warm, and these will help you do so. They may even come in handy if you have to pull over onto the side of the road and start a fire to warm yourself due to a natural disaster or problems with your vehicle.

  • Good For Cooking

    When you want to or need to use a fire to cook yourself and your friends or family dinner, you'll be able to use a single QuickLight to rapidly get your fire going. You likely won't find yourself desperately stoking the pieces of wood on your fire or the coals in your barbecue pit while everyone gets hungrier and hungrier. On another fortunate note, it's also been reported that these fire-starting devices will not add any chemical-type taste to your food, even though each one will remain in the fire as you cook.

  • Safe Everywhere 

    The non-combustible nature of each QuickLight's durable casing means that you'll be able to place each one almost anywhere in your home or car without being concerned about it spontaneously bursting into flames. You'll even be able to carry each one in a pocket next to any other items without running the risk of any of the objects catching on fire. Although kids shouldn't start fires with these devices themselves, it'll be safe to have them around kids since it's near impossible to start a fire with one by accident.

Save Time

If you don't have a device like the QuickLight to start a long-lasting fire, it may take you up to a half-hour to get one started. You also may have to constantly monitor it while adding sticks and pieces of paper to keep it going. If you do make use of one of these oil and wax devices, though, any fire should start in seconds and you shouldn't have to waste your time adding more solid fuel. Instead, the original pieces of wood and paper, along with the device's help, should power the fire for up to hours.
