About

Fast, safe and easy way to light your BBQ  

Are you fed up of waiting for the coals to glow? Then Maxxfire is the ideal product for you! Heat your barbecue within minutes without using igniting blocks or fluid. Thanks to the integrated heating element and the built-in fan, the charcoal is heated quickly, easily and safely without annoying smoke.

Deliciously prepared meat and vegetables without the taste of charcoal ignitors. The Maxxfire is cordless and can be taken anywhere.

The Maxxfire is the first and so far the only battery operated barbecue lighter that doesn't require a second source of energy to kindle the embers. The heating element ignites the charcoal and the fan makes the grill ready for use in a couple of minutes. Chemical starters become obsolete. Safety is considerably improved and the natural taste of grilled food is not affected by chemicals.

The round-shape handle can be held with a straight wrist for effortless operation. Its soft coating provides a comfortable sensation. Due to the rechargeable battery, it does not depend on electricity and can be taken to wherever people would like to enjoy their barbecue experience.

The replaceable battery can be used with other tools, which keeps the number of produced batteries small. The battery can be disposed of separately at the ende of its lifespan, which keeps the amount of waste small.

The heating element can be replaced to establish long-term use of the appliance. Easy operation and automatic switching of heating element and the fan makes use intuitive even without having read a manual.

 With the Maxxfire BBQ lighter: 

The charcoal is ready within minutes because of the 600 °C heating element and the fan. You don't need firing blocks or liquid anymore, so no chemical substances. The Maxxfire is easy to use and with the cordless appliance it is usable everywhere. The BBQ lighter is safe and environment friendly and you can light up your BBQ up to 5 times with one battery charge.

Since the beginning of time humans have been fascinated by flames. From generation to generation we developed smarter ways to make fire. We need it to prepare food and deep in all of us there is the desire to control it. Unfortunately, we can’t control it in a safe way to light our BBQs yet. On a yearly basis 20.000 people in the USA need to seek medical attention due to BBQ- lighting accidents like burning, poisoning and explosion of fluids.

Just Imagine, that your own child gets burned due to an explosion of firing liquid.

We, Batavia want to make BBQ lightening safer, easier and faster.

Our technical product manager R. Paais; ''The first idea came into my head one day when I was preparing my toast for lunch. I forgot about it for just a minute and the toaster’s heating element burnt the bread completely. I was fascinated by how fast it went and thought about using a similar technique to light charcoals. For me personally, it means a lot that Batavia gave me the opportunity to work on this project. I think it will change the BBQ parties as we know them.''

 The Maxxfire makes lighting your BBQ easy! Below is a how to manual:

Risks and challenges

Batavia is an international tool brand which was founded in 2009 and specialises in technical innovative consumer products.

This is our first kickstarer project but because of our experienced product developers and with access to many factories in china we are certain to make it succeed.

The most common risk is manufacturing and shipping delays. Given the nature of manufacturing and shipping, it is important to note we can't control every issue that arises.

However, we've carefully planned and coordinated the timing of all aspects and promise to communicate transparently to keep our backers posted.
