Long life for a cheap lighter – Elegant Jobon Windproof Butane Lighter Reviews

posted by ramla on 05/03/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- An excellent product for your money
- Does really look good
- Is very long lasting and realiable for a dealextreme product
- Batteries are replaceable
- The lid makes a satisfying click
- Can be refilled with a normal butane container
Cons:
- The gas container is quite small
- The flame adjustment needs a tool (slotted screwdriver)
- The flame needs adjusting if you want to use all of the butane before refilling
Other:
I have owned this lighter for two years now and it has been in use a lot. I have refilled this more than any other lighter I've had, although it probably has to do with the small container as well.
As it wears it doesn't reveal a different color underneath. The lid will become a little looser and doesn't close as tight. The batteries will soon run flat but if the light is important to you can buy spares from dealextreme. Search for AG1 cell.
Bottomline:
Well worth the price.
