About this project
MATE. You know you want to.
Bic sells 6 million lighters a day.
44 out of 45 lighters are lost before they run out of fuel.
MATE's simple solution helps prevent lighter loss.
LighterMate Classic gives your Bic lighter MATE functionality.
>> Thank you for your support! >>
MATE has been on the cutting edge of magnetic innovation since 2008. The first product we brought to market was the LighterMate Original, a refillable, waterproof lighter designed to prevent lighter loss.
The simplicity of MATE is the added value of an easy connect/disconnect system. Specifically, MATE’s patented magnetic technologies are broken into two separate areas: the MATE Mechanism and the MATE Plate.
For the purposes of this Kickstarter campaign, we've focused exclusively on the MATE Plate, adding MATE functionality to the number one selling lighter in the world.
Don't limit yourself into thinking that sticking to a pack of cigarettes is the only innovation. Yes, if you are a smoker and lose your lighter, this is amazing. We innovated the plate options for the rest of us, whether you are in need of a bottle opener, a grinder or the perfect portable mirror.
The world's number one selling lighter is now the world's second magnetic lighter. This disruptive, industry innovation is just the beginning.
Every aspect of our new product offering, including the four MATE Plate options, is intentional and well thought out. USE IT. DON'T LOSE IT.
MATE is on the cutting edge of magnetic innovation. Our patented docking systems are the most functional in the world. We take pride in our craftsmanship and are dedicated to clean, simple designs that add value to your life. Moreover, the magnets we use are the finest and strongest available. We use a nickel coated N50 Neodymium Rare Earth Magnet. Each MATE Magnet and all MATE products come with the MATE Guarantee.
Each order on Kickstarter comes with TWO LighterMate Classics. We'll send you a survey prior to shipping where you can let us know which two color options you prefer. [***Please note: the colors shown in the video are for advertising purposes only. You'll receive a survey prior to shipping, allowing you to select your desired color options. More color options will be unlocked as we meet our stretch goals. Currently unlocked options shown below.]

MATE just kicked off this campaign and is counting on YOU to share this project so that we quickly meet our initial goal of $50,000. This allows us to meet our minimum production run and bring you an incredibly functional, high quality product.
Our first stretch goal is set at $150,000. Reaching this goal means you'll be able to choose from an additional five color options.
If we make it to $250,000, we'll unlock a glow-in-the-dark option. We have even more amazing stretch goals planned, depending upon how quickly we reach goal one. So... Spread the word. Spread the love.
The level of support received through our kickstarted community will allow us to reach several different goals. We're tooled up and ready to produce the first five color options. We'll send you a survey prior to shipping where you can let us know which color options you prefer.
Every product ordered on Kickstarter will be on its way to you ASAP. We'll use this section to keep you posted with progress.

A huge THANK YOU to Australia for letting the legendary Pete Longworth venture around the world with his cohort, phen. Pete comes from the land down under...
Thanks to EVENT TECHNOLOGY for supplying us with our light-up signs. You helped draw people to LighterMate like a moth to the flame. The ways you've helped us engage crowds at festivals around the world is second to none. Most notably -- on behalf of everyone who touched them -- thank you for our MATE Balls.
Perhaps most importantly, thank you to YOU for sharing this project with your own online community. We couldn't do this without you.
(That's your hint to share this... NOW!)
Risks and challenges
Manufacturing is probably the biggest obstacle regarding this project. However, we previously manufactured the LighterMate Original and have proven that we are capable of producing and selling a high-quality, refillable, magnetic lighter (with required US CPSC Testing, HazMat Testing, DOT requirements and ISO international certifications). Given the hoops that we had to jump through to get the previous product on the market, producing the LighterMate Classic should be no problem. We have a team in place, dedicated to ensuring only the finest, highest-quality products.
In short, we're stoked to bring you the #LighterMate Classic.
USE IT. DON'T LOSE IT.
