Simple and thin – Skinny Card Style Butane Lighter Reviews

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

Pros:
As described this is a very simple thin good quality lighter. The rubberized coating feels nice and it has some weight to it. The hinge feels solid and lines up perfectly. I like the use of the wheel and flint instead of the spark mechanism which never lights on the first try. Came with fuel in it (does the post office know that?)
Cons:
This isn't a jet type torch like many butane's which is fine except it blows out very easily.
Other:
I'm not sure if I like the open=on mechanism yet or not. I sure hope it always turns off when its closed. Also I can't tell if the flint can be replaced. There is a screw which might open it up but you probably can't do that without letting all the gas out (due to the open=on mechanism mentioned earlier)
Bottomline:
Good simple lighter.
