good little lighter – Super Mini Vintage Oil Lighter Reviews

posted by TjinL on 07/02/2007 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very small, inexpensive, waterproof, simple, o-ring prevent loosing fuel and reliable.
Cons:
The capsule has very little grip, so it can be easily dropped when you have sweat, wet or dirty hands. Which can cause a fire hazard. Hard to use if you have cold hands. I have two and one arrived with a torn O-ring.
Other:
a diamond pattern on the capsule would be nice to improve grip.
Bottomline:
great little lighter, nice as a gadget. The metal outside and the lack of grip, which makes this less than ideal for a emergency fire lighting tool.
