Airlighter 520 Electric Lighter

Lighting your wood-burning pizza oven doesn't need to be a struggle!  The revolutionary Bison Airlighter 520 Electric Fire Starter will have your fire blazing in no time. 

The ultimate in speed and convenience, Airlighters turn the task of lighting fires from a chore into a pleasure — from the first sparks to the final ashes.

Starting charcoal and wood fires is now as easy as using gas. The Bison Airlighters are the only fire electric lighters that combine a torch flame with an air-blower to easily ignite and then boost your fire. 


With the Bison Airlighter 520, the contamination, risk factors, and adverse health side-effects associated with lighter fuels and fuel-infused charcoal are a thing of the past.  And — maybe best of all — lighting wood for cooking has now been reduced from 20+ minutes to just 5-6!


  • Built-in rechargeable battery provides 35 minutes of blower use.  A typical fire requires 1-4 minutes
  • Refillable fuel tank provides 10-15 minutes of burn time
  • Adjustable flame control helps light fires in any conditions
  • Folding handle with 3 different positions
  • Air-cooled operation keeps the Airlighter cool to the touch - safe around children - can store immediately
