  • I love it

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

    Pros:

    I love it. Money well spent. I've had it for a couple weeks, and I just yesterday had to replace the flint, but thats mostly because I've been playing with it a lot. I have only had to refill it twice after the initial fill up.
    It's very easy to light - when the wick was new, I was able to get it to light every time.

    I am able to do all sorts of tricks with it, but sometimes the wheel gets stuck when I try to spark it by rubbing it against my jeans.


    When the flint ran out, I was able to replace it with a flint from a crappy disposable lighter, so thats good.

    Cons:

    When the top is opened, the inside cartridge part rises up a little, and sometimes interferes with the lid when you close it if you don't push the cartridge back down.



    When it arrived it was empty, but I understand why it would be dangerous to ship lighter fluid.

    OtherThoughts:

    Same size as a Zippo.

    Bottomline:

    Almost as good as a Zippo, but for a fraction of the price.
