Great value – Vintage Zinc Alloy Windproof Butane Lighter - Dark Gray Reviews

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

Pros:
Sturdy metal construction. The finish is of a much higher quality than one would normally expect to find in a product in this price range. The viewing port provides an easy and accurate way of determining fuel level. The flame adjustment screw is both precise and accurate. Unlike many economy lighters, the re-fill valve is both reliable and consistent.
Cons:
I am puzzled by the LED light. It appears to be too small to have any real practical application. I would think it causes a small but unnecessary drain on the power source. The unit would be just as utilitarian without it
Other:
Bottomline:
This is a surprisingly high quality product for the price. It seems reliable and well made. I am extremely satisfied with the purchase and the prompt and efficient delivery.
