My partner Doug found the SurvivaLighter, which:

* Uses no fuel of any kind
* Is rechargeable
* Is totally windproof and light under adverse conditions with a 99.99% success rate
* Is totally waterproof and must be capable of lighting even while sprayed with water
* Is shockproof and dustproof

Basically, it's a pocket Tesla coil.  It is described as "rugged" and meant for military use, so it doesn't seem fragile like most advanced technology.  I imagine this is a typical lighter for Terramagne.

Contrast with a magnesium lighter which is low-tech, rugged, waterproof, and cheap ... but in no way windproof.
