  • A very practical lighter

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Gives hot, intense & focused flame. The flame flows directly wherever you turn the lighter (to the side and even down), so it's easy to ignite hard-to-access items/parts. Quickly and reliably (and thus safely!) ignites fireworks. Only takes one finger for operation. Ignites reliably every time. Is mildly wind-resistant -- not as much as some specifically windproofed lighters, but much better than plain ones. Inner construction is simple and and sturdy, thus should last quite long.

    Cons:

    It does somewhat heat up after prolonged use. There's no visual way of checking gas level.

    OtherThoughts:

    Unlike a plain gas lighter, this one pre-mixes gas with air, giving neat, consistent, hot & directed flame. The flame is almost entirely blue. The gas capacity isn't very large, but that's not a problem since you only need it alight for short time, thanks to high flame temperature.

    Bottomline:

    Very practical for fireworks and igniting in general. Would probably make a good pipe lighter thanks to its directed flame.
