The super lighter that was founded in Barcelona in 1959 has long been known for its safety, durability, and exceptionally long wear. However, what makes a Clipper lighter stand out is its wide variety of designs, shapes, and textures that has sparked a lighter revolution worldwide. In addition, its electronic lighters are virtually child-resistant, with harder buttons that prevent unwanted use, especially from the young ones. Now, people don’t just have one lighter but they have a wide collection, pairing their super lighter with their outfit of the day, or displaying the styles as any collectible should be.

Whatever your style, preppy, sweet, grunge, or classic, there’s a Clipper lighter that would suit you perfectly. Mix and match with Clipper’s unique designs that guarantee that you’ll never been carrying the same lighter twice.  Its distinctive charm will definitely raise you high above the rest.

So what else are you waiting for? Light your own fire today with Clipper Super Lighter, now available in convenience stores nationwide.
