Very good lighter – Windproof Butane Jet Torch Lighter with Strap Reviews

posted by dafluf on 06/13/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Feels solid
- Large and powerfull flame
- Really hot flame
- Windproof
- The parts that get hot, are heat resistant
- Small window to see how much gas there still is available.
Cons:
- The chain holding the protection cap breaks easely. I accidentely broke it while unwrapping the plastic.
- Can't lock the lighter in the "on" position
Other:
The lighter arrives empty, so make sure you have some butane gas to fill it up.
The rotating head can become quite hot if you use it for a longer period. Don't touch it with your bare hands.
Bottomline:
Very cheap lighter with a very good build quality.
My guess is that this thing will last a long time, because all the functional parts are sturdy.
I'll probably send in a new review in if it dies within the year.
