Today Luke is reviewing the UCO STORMPROOF SWEETFIRE Strikeable Fire Starter. It’s good but not exactly what the company claims them to be.

This will be the LAST of the UCO firestarters that I will review.

In the past I reviewed the Sweetfire fire starters and for the most part this is the same product with the exception that this features a much larger section of ignition source material.

Made from sugarcane waste — Bagasse is a fibrous sugarcane by-product and is used around the world as a renewable biofuel. 20 individual ‘Points’ conveniently connected & ready to break-off and use. Each Point burns for 7 minutes each. Strikable tip, can be used with striker on box, eliminating need for matches. Infused with vegetable wax, UCO Sweetfire is good for the planet & great for every adventure.
This new Stormproof Sweetfire is not only sweet for your gear collection, it’s sweet for the planet. Made from a sugarcane by-product called bagasse, this key ingredient is already used around the world as a renewable biofuel. Each of these match points (there are 20 per box) is infused with vegetable wax to allow for up to 7 minutes of burn time per each point. There’s also no need to bring matches to light the Sweetfire as each match point has a strikeable tip that can conveniently be used with the striker on the box.

Pros :

split these in half to extend your uses.

Excellent run time

Small form factor.

Lightweight

Good price

Renewable resources

Are they windproof?

Can be ignited with a ferro rod.

They are no longer connected which makes it easier and quicker to use

Cons :

Not really waterproof – only the ignition source if waterproof.

Are they wind proof?

Doesn’t feature a strike anywhere tip

Requires a striker

Summery :

UCO took a good product and improved upon it and in my opinion there is no longer a need for the original sweet fire. It’s a long running fire starter; it’s not perfect but it’s certainly a product which can assist you a great deal in less than perfect conditions. There are many fire starters out there on the market with many being much worse than this.
