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

posted by Mr.Disk on 02/26/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
If you get lucky and you get one that doesn't stop working, then its a fine torch for the price.
