    Very usefull firestarter

    posted by MrModern on 10/10/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very big. Huge magnesium part makes it very easy to make fire even in the most harsh conditions. Saved me from getting cold, when my gas lighters froze in winter. Used many firestarters and this one is definetely the best one I`ve had. Very sturdy.
    Cons:
    It is a bit disproportionate. Sparkling part is a bit too small in comparison with magnesium bar. Chain got easily broken off. ...

    Huge lighter

    posted by MrModern on 02/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Looks sturdy. Large flame. Large gas canister. The electric igniter looks solid and I hope it will be reliable. My other butane lighters died because of poorly made igniters. Comfortable in hand. Has a stand, which I don`t really like.
    Cons:
    I really dont like having a non-removable stand. I expected stronger flame. Instruction sheet is written in poor English langu...

    Good device for good weather.

    posted by MrModern on 02/19/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Has a lot of functions. Has a huge screen. It is very comfortable to see both: distance and speed at the same time. Probably that is the best thing about this speedometer that takes it out of ordinary. Very cheap.
    Cons:
    Poorly made, owned another one identical to this and it died in a rainstorm. I believe, that an outdoor device like this should...

    Original Zippo lighter

    posted by MrModern on 02/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It is the cheapest genuine Zippo oil lighter on the internet. Lights up fast and gives good quality, stable and semi-windproof fire. Comes in a nice box (I suppose every Zippo is sold like that).
    Cons:
    No cons at all. The lighter is genuine and made with quality and has lifetime warranty. Although it is cheapest one, it still l...

    Usefull but poorly made.

    Pros:
    Good lighter. Easy to ignite. You can change flame type and strength very easily. Large gas tank. Has a protection from burns. You can lock on flame so you dont need to hold the button. Looks and feels very solid.

    Inner parts are made out of the worst quality metal I have ever seen. You can easily break it with your hands, even if its 5mm ...
