About our nanoSPARK™


The nanoSPARK™ is an ultra-compact firestarter designed for use with high surface-area tinders such as quickFIRE™. It can also be used to easily light camp stoves. The nanoSPARK™ was designed to be used one-handed with quickLIGHT™ tabs. These tinder tabs can be stored within the waterproof body of the nanoSPARK™.


The nanoSPARK™ is a flint-based sparker that works similar to a traditional lighter. Simply spin the flint wheel to generate sparks. Aim sparks towards the quickLIGHT™ tabs or your choice of tinder. The nanoSPARK™ has a replaceable flint accessible via the dry tinder storage compartment. Simply unscrew the two halves of the nanoSPARK™ to reveal a brass thumbscrew that retains the flint and spring. 


Use the flint wheel the fluff up your tinder such as the quickLIGHT™ tabs. Spare flints can be stored inside the bottom of the dry tinder storage compartment.

  1. Sparkocalypse 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2019

    This thing rains fire (spark), ergo, I was super impressed. Small, handy, and it matches my Gunmetal nanoSTRIKER and MATCHCAP. Great piece of kit; my Exotac products are light, compact, and have never failed me. Trying to decide on pulling the trigger on a matching titanLIGHT to round out the collection. Great products, period.

  2. Pretty darn cool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2019

    Love this little piece. I haven't tested it yet but look forward to it. The sparks work great (just haven't tried to light the tinder yet). Light weight. Good backup. Get one!

  3. Almost Perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2019

    The nanoSPARK is really nice. It's about the size of a AA battery, but a little taller. The only thing I don't like is the placement of the key ring. It makes it hang at an angle. I wish they added the key ring at the bottom instead.

    It easily lights the included quickLIGHT, but I also found it sparks enough to light other tinder, and it also worked to lite my MSR PocketRocket gas burner. Very handy.

  4. Great sparkler! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2019

    Creates a great spark and does a nice job starting my backpacking stoves, be they white gas or alcohol stoves. It weighs next to nothing and does what it was designed to do. A nice piece of equipment to bring along and I highly recommend it.

  5. Big things come in small packages! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2018

    The nanoSPARK is a diminutive name but it certainly makes up for it in the spark department!
    I highly recommend this....get one and pick up a flint refill kit while you're at.

  6. Absolute must have. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2018

    Small and comfortable in your hand. Plenty of spark and easy to direct Wish there was a cover for the top but I did drop it in the creek and it fired a spark right off. Nice powerful tool.

  7. awesome little item 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2018

    beautifully machined and the fit and finish is on point. throws some good sparks and takes one strike to light the provided cotton tinder. small enough to fit in your pocket and forget its even there. the orange(my favorite color) is also an eye catching.

  8. One Shot ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2017

    It took nearly two weeks to reach Japan. BUT it was worth WAITING! Nine out of ten times, one strike was enough for a cotton ball. Approximately 12.8 mm Diameter Not Bulky! I went for ORANGE, pretty visible. Very pleased with the product. Thanks to Exotac!

  9. Made with precision! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2017

    I am a perfectionist. I absolutely love the clean lines, and better still, the functionality! While to some this may seem too high priced, you get what you pay for.
    I am impressed with every Exotac product I own, and this is no exception. The spark that is produced is hot enough to lite my homemade biscuits! (Cotton rounds dipped in wax)
    I did not receive any compensation for my review.
