Tiny lighter cufflinks

These tiny cufflink lighters by Etsy seller YOUgNeek are sure to come in handy whenever you want to light something. I really like the idea of functional accoutrements- anyone selling a soldering iron version?

For occasions where it would not be appropriate to wear cufflinks, try the stove necklace instead.

    The soldering iron sounds too physically small to actually use. Some things need to be a certain size or they’re just toys. A lighter will still light things when it’s tiny but soldering irons need to be at least big enough to have a handle.

      Hmm, good point.

      I think the problem with a soldering iron is the power-source.

      If you HAD a power-supply and could make a soldering iron the size of these cufflinks, then you could build one into a ring, then you wouldn’t need a handle.

      A ring-for-a-handle isn’t ideal, of course, but with effort it could be used.

        Perhaps you could use a butane-powered soldering iron, I think the energy storage density of a fuel might be sufficient to fit this application.

    I’d probably forget I was wearing them, try going through airport security and then who know what sort of hilarity would ensue!

      what hilarity?

      Like when you get home and realise that you were wearing them the whole time and neither you nor security noticed? ‘cos that’s what always (5-10 times?) happens with the leatherman micra I always forget’s attached to my keys, which I take out of my pocket and put through the xray machine in plain view.
