Most of the electric shock lighters available today are replicas of silver butane lighters. Depending on the quality, shocking lighters usually retail from $8 – $25. Most are fairly well made and splendidly disguised. I recently made a bulk purchase of 10 of these shocking lighters, not only to save money, but also because I knew that I would blow through these faster than a fat kid devours his horde of Halloween candy. If seeing your friends face squint in shock and slight pain from the juicing jolt released by the shock of the lighter is fun, imagine watching total strangers being shocked.
How do you get a complete stranger to shock themselves? The answer is simple curiosity my friend. All you have to do is leave the shock lighter out in plain view (on a picnic table or on the counter by the Slurpee machine at the nearest 711). No one is going to throw such a nice looking lighter away and it is very hard to pass up something so shiny. They are inevitably going to pick the lighter up for examination and when they click to produce a flame they will be in for a great surprise. Will you be there to watch their reaction from testing the shock lighter?
