my buddy was just here from South Africa and told me about it and ordered one.

of course i thought it was awesome and i ordered one. just got it today.

pretty novelty for me.

i only light a couple things and the most important would be a bit difficult without a flame but this thing is still cool.

no fluids obviously. usb charge

a cool little thing to have


cant wait for them to scale it up and start selling light sabres.

Tesla is misleading. It's a mini taser.

Would guess a charged capacitor.

No. It's not. It has nothing to do with Tesla though. Homedawg's coils are a bit more complex than a single arc.

Edit: Mine has an 18650 in it.

Better known on ebay as DUAL ARC PLASMA LIGHTERS

They are fairly cheap. you can even get ones with coil+arc

Guess they would be great for sparking up a smoke in the rain/wind.

even has a led display nice.

I bought one for my wife and one for myself. We don't smoke or anything they are just so cool that we wanted them to light whatever we could find...candles, fireplace fires, etc.

Worked great ever since.

They aren't Tesla coils, and it won't scale up like a lightsaber because each cm of spark distance requires thousands of volts.

Not to mention that an anode and cathode are needed

More marketing hype that does not live up to the claims.

I just don't get all the fascination with Tesla. I blame ignorance.

People attribute all kinds of stuff to the guy, from having invented over-the-air electricity (totally impractical due to energy loss), as well as having some connection to the spirit world, and everything in between. I think it's the mystery of electricity that captures peoples' imaginations. It's like magnetism: it's invisible, and yet it creates forces that defy logic based on what we can see.

If you're uneducated, it is witchcraft.

Imagine going back in time with a flashlight and a click pen. They'd have burned you at the stake


The marketers that recommended using Tesla as the name of an electric car were spot on and instantly created a marked for their product. "Tesla? It's GOTTA be cutting edge with all that woo-woo technology!"

Those look pretty cool. Some things I still need a Bic for though.

I got the lite saber , well to be more precise i had been smoking many joints just before xmas all the doors were open inside my house and it was about 2 am and all i had on was the television , when i turned it off i thought to myself in the dark never thought that out well .

So i grabbed my Tactical Ultrafire 50000Lumens T6 LED Zoomable 18650 Flashlight turned it on and zoom i was a 10 year old kid again
the beam was set to narrow and with the smoke made it look like a real lite saber

ps i am easy amused
