With the quickLIGHT, EXOTAC has created a waterproof tinder that performs extremely well to help ensure you always get a fire going when you need it. The quickLIGHT fire starting tinder is super easy to light with just a spark, is treated to fight off moisture and has a burn time of 1-2 minutes. It doesn't matter if you prefer to use matches, a lighter or a fire starter, quickLIGHT with catch quick and burn hot. For best performance and ease of use, be sure to pull the tinder apart and fluff it up to increase the surface area. This creates a larger footprint to catch a spark as well as increases airflow. If you are using a product like the EXOTAC nanoSPARK, just use the teeth on the flint wheel to comb the end of the tinder to fluff it up.
