From Halfwheel:

“For the last few years S.T.Dupont has talked about a new concept that would allow people to track their lighters in case they misplaced it. Now, the first of those lighters has been released in the U.S.

The S.T.Dupont Line 2 007 Connecting Lighter ($2,674) takes the company’s iconic Line 2 lighter and adds an internal Bluetooth module called D-Tag. That connects to the Orbit App, a third-party universal tracking app available on iOS and Android; or S.T.Dupont’s D-Tag app, which is currently only available for Android devices.

Physically, there are two easy ways to tell the Connecting Lighter apart from a standard Line 2. First, the tracking device is visible on the exterior, in this particular model it has a 007 logo; second, a micro USB port is on the bottom of the device. S.T.Dupont says it takes one hour to charge the tracker and that battery life is 15 days.

At $2,674, the lighter is about an $800 premium compared to the other 007 Gold Line 2 models.

The lighter soft-launched last year, though it only became available in the U.S. last month.

S.T.Dupont is distributed in the U.S. by Davidoff of Geneva USA.”

How To Rate a Cigar?

This article from halfwheel, written by Charlie Minato, does a great job of explaining the process they take to rate cigars. He goes into detail describing the process needed to properly and efficiently rate a cigar. Also, check out Jason’s post “My Father La Opulencia”, he does a wonderful job of reviewing and rating his cigar. Hope this is helpful to anyone interested in keeping a notebook that has cigar notes in it or if you wanna share your cigar experience with your friends!
