I’m Matthew Stoll, the founder and inventor of Plazmatic.

I am a tinkerer.  Since I was a kid growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area,  I’ve been taking things apart - getting under the shells of my favorite gadgets to solve the mysteries of how they worked. It was always my dream to create something revolutionary: a product that addressed a problem, functioned beautifully, and provided a "wow" factor that couldn't be ignored.

After studying marketing and engineering in college, working a number of odd jobs, and starting my own electronics company, the perfect idea finally hit me: re-invent the lighter. Inspired by the way automakers like Tesla were using batteries to produce cleaner, more eco-friendly products, we made it our mission to turn nasty butane fuel into a thing of the past.

Our first Plazmatic lighters had a single purple heat beam.

While they were really cool, I wanted to make them even more badass. If we were serious about bringing an eco-friendly alternative to the lighter industry, we'd need something that would really get people's attention.

So we spent thousands of hours designing, prototyping, and engineering a revolutionary new lighter. We gave it a better battery, improved the electric output, housed it in a slimmer, more durable case, and upgraded that single beam to our iconic purple "X". Finally, after more than a year of development and testing, the Plazmatic X was born!

 Today, with tens of thousands of delighted customers all over the world, our mission is clearer than ever: make the best rechargeable lighters in the world. Period.  Plazmatic lighters look stunning, provide quiet, reliable lighting power at over 900 degrees, have a positive impact on the environment (no more nasty butane!), and are totally badass!

We care deeply about our customers and want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase.  That’s why we are the only company making rechargeable lighters to offer a 30 day, no questions asked money back guarantee, and limited lifetime warranty.  We love hearing from our fans. Drop us a line with questions, comments, concerns, or just to tell us how much you love your Plazmatic lighter.

Thank you again for your support, and keep a look out for more amazing designs and products to come!
