    I purchased this antique lighter recently, but when I received it I noticed there is no valve on the bottom to refill it. I have tried removing the lighter portion from the casing but it seems to all be one solid piece. It came with two plastic nozzle pieces with numbers "3" and "5" on each one...

    I recently bought a used ST Dupont Gatsby and am having some trouble. I replaced the fuel and flint but sometimes the lighter will light on the first strike, other times it may take 10-15 strikes. Does anyone with experience have any suggestions as to what might be the root of this problem?

    Hi, I inherited this lighter from my dad - he got it while serving in Viet Nam. I'm wondering if I can return it to functioning condition. When attempting to fill it with the can shown in the picture, gas and liquid leaked out of the top of the lighter - whether valve was fully open or closed...

    Hello everyone, First poster here. Bought my first soft flame butane lighter today. It's one of those lighters where you roll/flick a an igniter in one of the corners of the thing to light it. Like a colibri Wellington. My question is: is it supposed to always be 'on'? It's always 'leaking' a...

    Anyone tried the vertigo intimidator? I saw a video of it and it looks pretty cool. It's fairly windy where I live and so it wouldn't be just for looks. I would love to hear from anyone who actually owns one.

    I've read several times that you should completely drain your butane lighter prior to refilling it. Is there a good reason for this? It just doesn't make sense to me not to make use of the butane that's already in the lighter. Why waste it? :ask:

    Bought a Ronson Jetlite from Walgreens and purged it at home. And I smelled an odor as I continued to purge. After cleaning the lighter I put Xikar butane in the lighter. Will this affect the taste of my cigars cause of the odor I smelled while purging?

    Recently started using the Little Buddy Butane torch made by blazer, and imho, it is the most practical torch on the market. Assuming you put good fuel in there, this thing lasts WEEKS ( almost a month) on one refill. The tank is huge, the single torch is precise and resists wind. I use this...

    I've got some cheap lighters and lighters that I spent much more for ($40 - $50) range. Of course the more expensive lighters are much more reliable and usually light on the first try and overall work better than the cheap lighters. So far I've been using butane fuel that I believe I picked up a...

    Refilling butane lighters correctly can be a challenging task, and smokers often resort to a cadre of ill-matched objects including scissors, paper clips, knife tips, or worse--unnecessarily risking damage to their expensive lighters. The Butane Screw Thing is a compact tool designed...

    i need to pick up some more butane and I'm taking a poll to decide on which one would be best.. I've used cheapo ronson multi fill but it seems to kill the performance of anything I put it in.. I need something that would make my new Ronson Jetlite (thanks to teedles915) keep working up to par...

    I've never seen one of these before... Some makes/models of butane lighters are fiendish in regards to adjusting & bleeding... Xicar, Colibri, Lotus, and Vertigo come to mind. I have ZERO experience with this widget: The Butane Screw Thing Lighter Flame Adjuster & Tank Purger Keychain - Pipe...

    Hi everyone, Am a new cigar smoker and my girlfriend wants to buy me a Xikar lighter online for my birthday. I already know the one I want but I do have one problem, which is obtaining the good quality butane for it as I live in a small Ontario hick town that only sells the cheap crap like...

    Ok, a simple question that has bugged me for quite some time now. I have several lighters, a cpl Xikar, a ronson, a zippo blue, and a zippo torch insert. When I fill a select few of these lighters, (brand doesn't matter IMHO), I get excess butane spraying out around the fill tip. The lighters...

    Hello folks, I just wanted to take a minute to share my experience with my new lighter. I have always loved Zippos for their style, but I'm not fond of the smell the fuel puts off. I have never noticed it imparting a taste into my cigars, but I figured switching over to butane could only be a...

    is it just me or when it's really cold do butane lighters have trouble lighting? Both my Lotus triple flame and my Xikar Exudus soft flame suck when it gets cold out. thay don't light easily and when they do the flame is pathetic.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that about a ligher I just purchased. I picked it up off of deal extreme and so far I am 100%happy with it. It lights the first time everytime, and fits the bill perfectly as a cheap table lighter. It can also be swtiched to a soft flame after lighting, if...

    I've been seeing ads for "triple filtered" butane. Is this BS? Just looks like a marketing ploy to part suckers from their cash. Apparently the "off the shelf" cheap stuff can "gunk up your favorite lighter" I figure a replacement "favorite" lighter would end up way cheaper than paying for...
