    Practical

    posted by dexendeVries on 06/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I'm using it for carrying small bunch of keys. Attaches reliably to backpack straps. Is reasonably lightweight. The shape lets you open it with just thumb and index finger. Thanks to two separate jaws, it holds on quite reliably.
    Cons:

    Cons:
    It does somewhat heat up after prolonged use. There's no visual way of checking gas level.

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

    Pros:
    Looks good and ignites reliably. The wick is protected by a small metal cup when the lighter is closed, ensuring the gasoline doesn't evaporate too quickly.
    Cons:
    Some edges aren't finely machines and will scratch your skin a bit. It takes some strength to open/fire it -- albeit that may b...
