For a different kind of light in your pocket, swap out your official Zippo for this lookalike that has the flint wheel and wick replaced with a set of ultra-bright white LEDs. It will never get even remotely hot enough to light a cigarette, but should help you find a more reliable source of fire when it's dark out.
The Flip Torch is powered by three AG3 batteries which don't sound like the easiest things to replace. But these are LEDs we're talking about, and hunting down fresh batteries shouldn't have to happen that often. As a bonus, for just $15 it's a completely safe way to practice your Zippo tricks without the risk of setting anything ablaze.
