A real and authentic cigarette gas lighter with a cleverly concealed miniature voice activated recorder built inside. UK designed and hand made for superior audio recording up to 12 hours from a single charge!

Authentic Real Cigarette Lighter; With 12 Hours of Voice Activated Recording
We were approached to build a miniatiure voice recorder inside the enclosure of a real disposable lighter to record over a 12 hour period. Hand-built with excellent audio quality, the Cigarette Lighter looks and feels completely authentic - even the lighter head produces sparks. By removing the ligher head allows access to the ON / OFF recording switch and miniature connection port to recharge the lithium battery and offload audio recordings to a computer.
Simply place the lighter in the area of concern ie: an office or house room and the highly sensitive audio microphone will monitor the environment and record when sound is detected. This disposable gas lighter has eight (8) GB of internal memory (thats approx 96 hours of total audio storage) and utilises a fail safe wipe design. Audio is captured at 196 KBPS bit-rate for fantastic clear audio.
Colours are Blue and Red. Please specifiy your colour preference from the menu above.
REAL LIGHTER WITH TIME AND DATE RECORDING
Measuring just 85 x 25 x 11 mm, the cigarette lighter recorder offers a very easy operating function with a single slide switch. You may also enable voice recordings to be accompanied with a time and date stamp when matters of a sensitive nature must be captured as vital evidence. Please note the time / date function can only be set using a Windows computer.
VOICE ACTIVATED RECORDING
The lighter is preset with an audio threshold at 30 db which means sound detected above that threshold will trigger the recording to start, and will continue to record until the audio threshold drops below 30 db. The Cigarette Lighter cleverly compresses each separately triggered audio (regardless of recording length) into just a single .WAV file for play back on any Windows or Mac computer without any special software or technical skill required.
Once the internal lithium battery has been depleted, simply remove the lighter head and connect the lighter to a computer using the supplied USB cable. We also (optionally) provide a genuine Apple USB plug should you wish to connect the lighter to a mains power to recharge. Please select this option from the menu above.
WINDOWS & MAC COMPATIBLE
The Cigarette Lighter Recorder can be connected to any Windows and Mac computer to recharge the device, and / or play back recorded content. Audio recordings can also be archived or emailed to other recipients in the normal manner.
CUSTOM DESIGNED VARIATIONS
We understand that your requirement may be slightly different ie: a longer battery performance, a modified external appearance etc therefore, we can design similar 'one-off' models to best suit your needs. Please contact us and we will try to accommodate your requirements.
The Voice Activated Cigarette Lighter Recorder is an authentic and real looking disposable lighter built from the ground upwards for fast deployment and reliable audio recoridng results. Top class engineering applied as standard.
THE GAS LIGHTER IS REAL?
Yes. The combination of using special milling equipment, a miniaturised audio recorder and years of technical engineering background made this possible. The end result is a normal disposable gas lighter which can be visually examined and even handled without giving away what is actually is.
Note: Colours are Red and Blue.
DOES IT PRODUCE A FLAME?
Due to the internal recording mechanism this particular lighter only produces sparks associated when disposable lighters run out of gas.
HOW DO I SWITCH ON / OFF THE RECORDING?
Simply pop off the lighter head to view the recording slide switch and the miniature connection port to connect the lighter to your computer. There is no technical skill or any special software required.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE THE LIGHTER RECORDER?
There are lots of legimate good reasons why individuals use voice recorders for example: you may need to capture verbal abuse in the home environment or perhalps in a care home. You may believe somebody is entering your room when you are absent and need evidence or perhalps provide concreate audio evidence of an ongoing work dispute to the relevant authorities.
WILL THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER RECORD ALL THE TIME, OR JUST WHEN VOICES ARE HEARD?
The lighter uses voice activated recording only. This means when the microphone inside the lighter detects audio noise, the recorder will silently commence recording and will continue to do so until audio is no longer deteced or the battery requires recharging after 12 hours of operation (whichever comes first). All recorded audio stored from the period when it was deployed is compressed and stored as one (1) single playable audio file to the cigarette lighters internal eight (8) GB of flash memory.
WHICH AUDIO FORMAT IS RECORDED?
Audio files are created and stored in standard WAV format which is supported by many different media players.
DOES THE LIGHTER MAKE ANY BUZZING NOISES WHEN RECORDING?
No. The miniature voice recorder is digital so there are no moving parts. There is an LED to indicate when the lighter is being charged, and a tempory illumination when it is powered ON to record. The use of an LED is to guide you what is happening, whilst being very subtle without bringing unwanted attention. We can disable LED's but we advise against it.
ARE AUDIO FILES ACCOMPANIED WITH A TIME AND DATE?
Yes. This function does not need to be used but if you do decide to enable it, then you must use a Windows computer to do this. Please remember, the time and date is stamped only when the very first audio is triggered.
HOW CAN I PLAY BACK THE RECORDED AUDIO?
Simply connect the cigarette lighter to your Windows or Mac computer using the supplied USB cable. Once connected, the computer will recognise the connected device and the audio file can be played through the computer's media player. At the same time, the lighter recorder will be recharging from the computer too.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILT A ONE-OFF CUSTOM LIGHTER FOR ME?
Yes. The engineers are specialists in this field so just drop us a message to get the ball rolling.
