Product Description

The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter is a great back up fire starter and will fit practically anywhere. Our Fresnel Lens Fire Starter is small, flat, light and inexpensive. Some practice is required and of course, one needs a sunny day for it to work. We do not recommend the Fresnel Lens as a primary fire starting tool, but as an addition to an already supplied kit. The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter, or Credit Card Magnifier, is so inexpensive why not carry a few just in case.

The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter is more commonly known as a credit card magnifier. However, our version has 4 power magnification, much more than the 2X or 3X of standard credit card magnifiers, making it a great magnifier fire starter.

The Fresnel Lens has been used for years in various applications, most notably the Light House Lens. Using a Fresnel Lens allows the light of the light house to be magnified numerous times and still be relatively small. It is a truly amazing invention.

Our Fresnel Lens is made of optical pvc, is .4mm think and weighs 5.5 grams. In short, it is the size of a very thin credit card. The Fresnel Lens Fire Starter comes with a red or green protective case and can be purchased individually or in bulk at discount prices. We include the Fresnel Lens as standard equipment in several of our survival kits.
