Exotac already has a huge feather in their crowdfunding cap. Their Kickstarter campaign to launch the fireSLEEVE was a huge success. Now they are looking to catch lightning in a bottle a second time with a new crowdfunding campaign for the nanoSPARK.
The nanoSPARK is functionally similar to spark wheels included in many survival kits going back to the Vietnam war era and before. It is very much like a lighter without a reservoir for lighter fluid. The user turns the gnurled wheel which grinds against a flint, creating sparks. It’s a proven method for creating sparks in a wide variety of environmental conditions.
Exotac’s penchant for bomb-proof design, understanding of usability, and knack for building in slick features is what sets the nanoSPARK apart from other sparking devices. The nanoSPARK is machined from aluminum and has a look that fits right into the rest of the Exotac line. It is large enough to hold, small enough to carry, and weighs only .6 oz. It has on board, water-proof storage for tinder (supplied with tinder) and makes use of common lighter flints.
