Good lighter – Honest Wind-proof Butane Jet Lighter Reviews

posted by KiwiMark on 09/15/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Honest brand = good quality.
Windproof (at least wind resistant anyway) flame, better than other types outdoors.
Nice satin finish metal.
Illuminated sight glass (little LED inside which lights up when you open the top).
Not likely to self-activate in your pocket.
Cons:
Nothing wrong with this product.
Other:
This one lights the sight glass when you open the top, but does not start the gas flowing. When you hold down the button the lighter lights, when you let go the flame goes out.
Which is better - the ones that stay lit without holding the button down or ones like this? It depends on what you prefer.
Bottomline:
Different lighters have different features - if you like the features of this lighter then I don't think you will be unhappy if you buy it. If you want a windproof lighter that is less likely to accidentally light in your pocket then this would be a good one to get.
