When disasters strike, we’re often relegated back to our most primal instincts: to eat, to drink, and to stay alive in any terrain. When outdoor enthusiast Konel Banner’s sister and family were reported missing following the Teton Idaho Dam Flood, Banner found his calling in service as he helped families who had lost everything to patch their lives back together (his family was found a week later).
When, some time later, Banner happened upon an elderly man literally creating fire from a rock, he knew put his knowledge of the outdoors and his desire to service humanity to use. The result is InstaFire, the ultimate fire-starting product that only requires a match to ignite. This powerful combination of wood pellets, volcanic rock and paraffin wax burns at 1000 degrees in just seconds, making it easy to start a life-giving fire on any surface, even wet wood.
InstaFire isn’t just created as an emergency kit product, though it certainly should be included in one. There are more than 20 innovative uses for this product, including camping, backyard fire pits, ATV-ing, dutch oven cooking, hunting and so much more. Store it in your garage in case of winter power outages, or keep it in a backpack when you travel. One cup of InstaFire will boil 2 cups of water in just ten minutes, making it perfect for cooking on camping trips or overnight “staycations” in the backyard.
InstaFire can burn for up to 15 minutes on its own, but is best used to light wood, charcoal, or any other flame-starting substance. All it takes is a match or magnesium striker to get the flames started. Much like a candle, the flame starts small and builds over time, making it safe to light at close range, avoiding harmful fumes and high flames often associated with highly flammable starters.
Whether you’re looking to stay alive or just stay warm on your next family outing, InstaFire is your best option for creating powerful flames without hassle.
