If you’ve never seen a rechargeable lighter before, you’re not alone—but this handy gadget is about to be your best friend on camping trips, patio dinners, and around the house.

1) It lasts longer than disposable lighters.

This rechargeable lighter from Reidea is the perfect solution to cheap disposable lighters that quickly run out of gas. Each charge can last for more than 60 uses, so it’s great for lighting multiple candles at events, camping, or backyard grilling. A USB cable is also included for charging.

2) It’s safer than your average lighter.

Because of the long design, flameless tip, and on/off switch, this electric lighter is safer than standard lighters that bring your fingers close to the flame. It’s great for lighting deep candles, fireplaces, or fire pits.

3) Wind is no match for this lighter.

If you’ve ever tried to light a candle or fire pit on a windy night, you know just how frustrating traditional lighters can be. This electric lighter is also windproof so you won’t have to worry about heating up the lighter multiple times in different weather conditions.

If you can’t open a door to enjoy a nice natural breeze because of unwanted bugs and insects from invading your home, install a screen door to allow a flow of air while protecting against unwanted pests. That free airflow will help lower your air conditioning bill, even if you open the house in the morning and late in the day. A screen door is a good investment in making life at home more comfortable.

Q: Tim, I read a previous column of yours in which you talked about repairing a shallow depression in a concrete surface using sand and Portland cement. My issue is I have a few shallow puddles in my blacktop driveway, and I know this ponding water will eventually create a far more serious issue. The normal patching products sold in bags will not work, as the depression is too shallow. I tried using it once and it all peeled up. How do you recommend creating a patch that stays put and matches the rest of the blacktop as closely as possible? I’m 78 years old and quite sure I can follow your directions. —Katie D., Laurel, Md.
