    Break a crumb off one corner and light that. Then sit the rest of the block next to it.

    I carry a small dropper bottle of alcohol fuel. Few drops into the tablet sets it off.
    20 ml lasts me a fortnight.
    5ml ample for a few days.

    A jet lighter is well appreciated with solid fuel.

    A little blob of hand sanitizer makes a good lighting aid too.

    I do this too as @Mole kindly gave me a small dropper. Works a treat.

    I don’t think that’s going to bother me :D

    My chances of being at an altitude that a torjet won't work at aren't great for 12 months and then I'll be using gas anyway. :)

    Rechargeable arc lighter works well
