It's simply away to make a spark sufficient enough to start a fire with proper tinder (think of an empty Bic lighter on steroids) and also has a built-in, durable, waterproof storage area for said tinder.

Two is one and one is none. I live in the Pacific Northwest and spend a lot of time outdoors. I’ve quickly learned redundancy when it comes to making a fire is important here. I carry a Mini-Bic and fero rod (Exotac FireROD), while the wife will be carrying a Mini-Bic and this.

Have any of you actually been camping? With wind, rain, and other elements, no BIC is going to help you! Yellowstone taught me that lesson.

I'm going to order mine in olive drab to make it more challenging to find if I forget where I set it down.

Nice, Brother! My local stationary store had a sale on camo-pattern handled scissors! I'm doubled over laughing so hard I could hardly breathe...and everyone is staring at me: am I the only guy who has trouble finding scissors...? Apparently, yes. I would buy them and send them to you just for posting that! (Yes, I am getting the orange lighter.)

I go with a mini-bic instead of any other gimicy firestarter. Buy the white ones so you can see how much fuel is left.

What's wrong with carrying a lighter? I would rather have a brass or copper Peanut lighter, or a Mini-Bic lighter with a waterproof case. for less than half the price.

Good point. I generally keep my lighter inside my coat so my body heat keeps the lighter warm. Altitude would be a problem though.

Trust someone from the UP (I assume) when it comes to practical solutions to a problem! Never regretted a moment in the four years I lived in Michigan. The people... Skipping classes when the salmon or steelhead were running... Buying ammo and liquor in the same store... Did I mention the people...? :)

Why can't they ever take pictures with size comparisons. The thing looks freakin huge. C'mon guys, how hard is it to put a quarter in the picture, or in someone's hand?

This is a good point @gartland291 but they're are some pictures in the discussion that may help you out! These things are pretty small.

I really like these...but not $24. I like these at about $10-12...come on, they are aluminum...and not very much aluminum.

Looks cool, but when you think about it rationally, it's kind of lame. If you are going to everyday carry a firestarter, you may as well carry a proper lighter which is convenient to light fires with. As others have said, a peanut lighter is also small enough to carry on your keychain, It's 'O'ring sealed watertight and carries it's own fuel supply, so instant fire. The sealed lid keeps unused fuel for months on end.
....And, if you do use your fuel up (actually lighting fires, rather than your one stored tinder piece), you can still use the flint wheel to produce sparks just like the nanospark. A couple of extra flints can be stored in the fuel compartment and in an emergency, when your fuel and tinder are all gone, you can pull the wadding out of the fuel compartment and use that as tinder to take a spark. - I have experimented with this, and the wadding takes a spark much more easily than the tinder quik-style tinder.
A Chinese peanut lighter will set you back maybe a couple of $. Or you could have a nice County Com Peanut or Split Pea in varying sizes and materials including copper, brass and titanium for about the same price as this one trick pony.
Finally, the flat bottomed ones can also be used as an emergency candle light.
