Oh, well played you clever AI. You manage to imply that other lighters aren’t allowed on planes without actually saying so, because you can actually take a regular lighter as a carry on.

However, while regular lighters are explicitly allowed, I haven’t found the same for electric lighters. Does anyone have a link to the TSA or FAA that explicitly says electric lighters are allowed?

I’m guess these wouldn’t work with pipes, though, because with this lighter, you put the object into the flame as opposed to the flame into the object. Am I wrong?

You are correct. These are only for things you can stick between the electrodes. Some people find them too small even to comfortably fit a cigarette into, making for a futzier light than a regular lighter. And while you can light a thin candle with one, the way the cap flips out means you can’t easily re-light fat candles with a recess.

But, they are wind proof, but only so long as the thing you are lighting is, too.
