A lighter that has a coin tube on the side that has a slot for a dime. Upon inserting a dime the gas button is unlocked allowing use of the lighter. At the bottom a key unlocks the coin tube allowing removal of the dimes as well as the owners free use of the lighter. Good for friends who borrow lighters all the time and you make some money! .....It would be sold primarily as a novelty item for lighter buffs.

       Putting money in the lighters of smokers? I wonder where that would end up. For shame [obesemind].
