The Journey Begins
I always thought of Zippo lighters as a “cool” guy accessory. But when I was recently asked to review the new Zippo Emergency Fire Kit, I learned that they are also an essential survival tool for any outdoorsman or woman. This kit is not just a cool looking lighter – it’s actually a complete emergency fire starter kit that includes tinder, waterproof matches and even a built-in scraper! Read on for my hands-on review and find out if this might be the perfect gift idea for your favorite survivalist.

I am a fire bug! I love talking about starting, maintaining and transporting fires. So when the Zippo Emergency Fire Kit for hands-on reviewing it was my chance to get excited again because this kit is right up my alley with its cotton looking material inside and flint striker on top. But as soon as I opened the container of course there’s more than meets the eye…
A space saver that fits in any room and is ready to go when you are.
Fire is one of those topics that always seem interesting no matter how many times you talk about them; from discussing different ways to start, maintain or transport fires they are sure to never be boring in conversation. With Zippo Emergency Fire Kits being hand reviewed by me today sparks will fly even brighter knowing these kits have something new: an easy starter made
The Zippo Emergency Fire Kit is a compact, convenient way to start campfires. The kit includes 5 items; lighters, waterproof container with resealable lid for tinder and kindling storage (it floats!), Flint wheel fire starter that makes sparks when struck against the steel striker plate in the base of your lighter’s case – no more rubbing two sticks together! Plus an emergency whistle on top and instructions inside cover pocket make this essential gear easy to carry as well as use.
Start to finish in 3 minutes or less
The flint used in this kit is the same as those found inside Zippo lighters. This means that, like a well-known brand name would suggest, these are some of the best you can find for sparking fires with ease. Each container includes five rolls coated in paraffin wax to help light up even more materials or start planks on fire while camping! The compact size and convenient design make it easy to carry anywhere – from your car’s pocket compartment all the way down into a backpack…this little accessory fits just about everywhere!
Clear, concise and witty.
I was a little disappointed when the tinder arrived. I expected it to be about 3x as large and have more of an impact, but after testing it out in various conditions – wet ground, rain-soaked wood chips at our campsite last weekend, even ice on rocks this week – these rolls are for real! They burn up to five minutes each with just one spark or flame. It’s very convenient that they come individually wrapped so you can pick which ones work best for your needs without wasting any time trying them all separately like some other brands require. Plus there is enough room within the container itself where you could store additional items such as matches if needed too!
I submerged the whole kit in a pitcher of water and watched as it bobbed up to down. I put my finger on top to see if there was any leakage, but thankfully everything stayed dry!

I took the container, fully submerged it in water for 30 seconds and then removed. I checked inside to see if there was any water that may have made its way into due to not being sealed with a cap from one side or another. There were no leaks of any kind! Next time you are out camping be sure your tinder is safe by having this waterproof emergency kit on hand!
As I was looking for a way to make my camping experience more efficient, the question of how long it takes tinder to ignite and burn became an important one. The claim on Zippo’s packaging is that their tinder will last five minutes, but when tested against cotton balls (which are much bigger), the result showed thirty seconds- so not quite as impressive. However, this made me wonder if they were just half burning all of these other things rather than actually combusting them due to its size? To test it out I grabbed some small sticks from around camp with which I pushed through a hole in the center at the top end of each roll
Testing the best gear for you so you don’t have to.
I wanted to know two main things about ignition and duration: 1) How easy
I used the stick to grab and push out material from inside of my roll. Afterwards, I pulled it apart with my fingers to fluff up the tinder that was placed next to a striking pad on one side. When sparks landed on top where an arrow pointed at, they ignited easily!
A place for the whole family to get wet!
I was about to wrap up my testing when I got to thinking. The container is waterproof but what if while I was handling one of the tinder rolls, it fell in a puddle and became wet? To test this theory out, I proceeded with some more tests.
The only step you need to worry about.
I dipped several pieces of cardboard into water for thirty seconds each before using them as kindling material that would catch fire from my flaming stick igniter. Water soaked through on all three cards suggesting they won’t be good enough should you drop your dry tinders or leave them outside during rainstorm without protection!
I dunked an extra roll of tinder in my container and shook it off. The material got wet from the water but I wanted to see if a lighter would work on damp materials too so I fluffed out all the excess liquid. It lit up, even with just one little flame!

Replacing the Flint. I have used Zippo lighters for years so replacing a flint is old hat for me, but I know many people haven’t ever done this before so here’s how to replace it with ease: Step 1) Find new replacement flints – these are small and hard to handle so be careful not to lose them! Step 2) Take out your lighter head assembly from its case (see image). Carefully insert both ends of the new replacement into place on either side of the metal pin in front that you will find there. Push until they click back together as shown below (image 3), then push down on top middle part- should now look like last picture taken without all those hands obstruct
Zippo lighters are notorious for being difficult to change the flint. Fortunately, when you need a new one there is an easy way of doing it yourself! First, find your nearest Zippo lighter retailer and purchase some replacement parts as well as the necessary screwdriver (you’ll know what I’m talking about!). Next up: unscrewing that old spring with care. Make sure not to lose any pieces so make a little pile on either side first before loosening anything – then remove that pesky flint tube from its housing place using said screwdriver while supporting this wheel you see here in order avoid breaking it off by mistake or getting those annoying metal shards everywhere!

Zippos can be notoriously hard to replace their own
I have found that when I am unscrewing a stubborn screw, it helps to use my hand as the place where the head of the screw turns. This creates less friction and allows me to remove all screws much more quickly than if using only an ordinary metal tool. Additionally, by holding onto both ends of this spring-like contraption with one hand while removing them from their tight spot inside your device they will not fly away once you pull on them!
Hey, I’m a bot.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to replace the flint in your plunger. The first step is just like any other: lay out all of your tools on a flat surface or somewhere where they won’t get lost! For example, take off the spring from the old piece and place it next to our new one with a finger pointing at what we want. Once that’s done we can insert and compress the spring into its tube by using pliers if needed – then tighten down with an Allen wrench for extra security. Now test it out by rolling over once or twice before putting back together (step 5) so everything feels good in there. Next up put away all those tiny pieces again as best you could but don
To make sure I am as prepared as possible with this kit, I went ahead and put an extra flint and a small flat head screwdriver bit into the container with tinder. This way in case one of them breaks down on me during my trip or gets lost somehow, there will be more replacements available to use. You can’t see it very well but you might just barely detect that little sliver at the tip of what looks like a screwdriver propped up right next to some kindling sticks inside this waterproof metal tin – turns out those are actually replaceable tinder rolls for making fires!
