  • Sweet Little Oil Lighter

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Great lighter for the size very versatile and convenient to carry in every vehicle and emergency kit. Can be used for a variety of things such as emergency lighting.

    Cons:

    Small rubber o-rings, found one that was broken on one of the lighters I got. Rounded bottom on it won't keep it upright on a table if trying to use it as an emergency light. Other issue I found was debris in the bottom when I open them, looks like it's from when they plated the lighters, cleans out easily with a tap or two on the bottom



    OtherThoughts:

    I replaced the small o-ring with a thicker o-ring from the plumbers shop, got a pack of 10 o-rings for $2. I also used a hammer and tapped the bottom a few times to flatten it out, very stable now on a flat surface.

    Bottomline:

    Can't imagine getting a better little lighter for the price, works with all zippo parts so it's easy to find replacements if needed except for the o-ring.
