Anyway, the self contained lighter unit comes apart. YOu take out the push buttony thing witht he wires on it. That's the bit you need. When you push the button a spring mechanism whacks a crystal that has piezo electric properties (not all do) and it emits a very short, but very strong electric pulse. Arcing the pulse over a gap makes a spark. Spark make fire. Fire go boom. Boom pushes spud. Everybody laugh and reload.

Was that necessary?
