Not so great – Jet 1300-C Butane Lighter with Clear Tank Reviews

For the most part, this lighter does what it says it does. It came full of fuel, and I like the fact that the tank is see though so you can tell how much is left.
For a couple of days, it only lit on the second try, then it stopped working at all. Now it only flares up when I try to light it, then immediately goes out. It doesn't work on any flame setting. Even when I leave the button on to let the gas keep coming out and then try to light it with a flame, it doesn't work.
I was able to kind of melt a penny. I held the flame on the penny for about 40 seconds and the zinc started oozing out, but it didn't really melt.
If you get lucky and you get one that doesn't stop working, then its a fine torch for the price.
