Very much an emergency item, but you can use the Fire Starter to light a stove when all else fails. If you need to light a fire for real you'll be glad you've got some quality tinder to start you off.
AMK says: The Fire Lite is a one-hand operable sparker that is easy to use and produces a powerful shower of sparks and is tested to provide over 5000 sparks. Waterproof/windproof Tinder Quik ignites from a single spark and will burn for up to three minutes. Includes 4 pieces of Tinder Quik.
Ideal uses: Climbers Backpackers Hikers Campers Adventure Racers Backcountry Skiers Hunters Pilots Snowmobilers.
Adventure Medical Kits Fire Starter & Tinder Quik kits are so light that if you are going to be out of touch for a couple of days we can't see any reason why you wouldn't carry one as part of your emergency kit even if its only to light your stove when you've forgotten the matches or the piezo starter has failed!
