The lighter that let's you be a star! (Since 1988) – American-Spirit Metal Oil Lighter Reviews

posted by nukenik on 03/22/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It works as you expect it to. I compared it side-by-side with a genuine Zippo and found it to be equally wind proof.
Cons:
Despite fairly sturdy construction, these do not seem to be as 'tight' as they might be, and the result is that fuel does not last as long as it might.
Other:
Heaven help me, I have no idea what the year 1988 has to do with the Statue of Liberty. Maybe that's the year the designed visited the United States and watned to commemorate it with a cigarette lighter?
Bottomline:
I'd rate these as good overall, and for the price, very good. Just keep plenty of fluid on hand.
