4. Portable

In addition, portable should be another key element while choosing a refillable butane lighter. For example, this camping torch waterproof jet butane lighter is very small, compact and almost weightless for outdoor survival or camping.

6. Support One-handed Operation

Whether the lighter used in outdoor camping can support one-handed operation is very important. Better don’t use those kinds of lighters that need both hands to ignite, as you can imagine, it might not be possible to light a fire if your hand was injured.

In complex outdoor environments, you may need to prepare a plan B in order to adapt to different survival. An extra lighter or magnesium rod and waterproof matches should be carried for backup. Also, igniting magnesium is full of fun. Never mind, we’ll talk about it in the next article.

Fix Butane Lighter won't spark? Troubleshooting & Tutorial​

Normally, the torch lighter usually keeps a few minutes of low temperature after refilling, you should ignite it after a while. If the torch lighter sparks but doesn’t light after refill, this troubleshooting guide may help.

Troubleshooting & Tutorial

1. Check if the filled gas has the same purity as the butane filled before. It is recommended to purchase relevant accessories from brand manufacturers as much as possible.

2. Check whether the air inlet is blocked by foreign objects.

3. Whether the igniter has enough power and whether there is damage.

4. Try turning up to “+” the lighter valve. To do that, please adjust it higher by a little, testing whether it can be used normally. Do not turn the valve up too much at one time, or the jet flame will be too big or fail to hit.

5. Adjust the ignition wire or replace the flint. The specific investigation steps are as follows.

If you’re using a piezo lighter:

1) Firstly Completely close the valve

2) Then observe the moment when the lighter is started, you can see the spark of the ignition wire. (If no sparks are produced, your lighter has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced with a butane gas lighter.)

If the spark is generated on the edge of the butane spray outlet, you can adjust the lead wire with a screwdriver so that the ignition wire is directly above the air outlet.

5 Common Issues that torch lighter won’t light, how to fix?

If you get upset because your torch lighter doesn’t work properly, please don’t worry, now take a few minutes to read this tutorial and bring your lighter to life again.

These are five common issues for a lighter that fails to work, go and check which one is the problem with your butane lighter.

  • Butane Lighter Tank is Empty
  • Need to High or Low your Fuel Adjustment
  • Try to Ignite but No Spark
  • Burners get Clogged
  • Air Trapped In Fuel Lines

Butane Lighter Tank is Empty

Most people thought the butane lighters were fulfilled when first purchased online. When they finally got the lighters in hand they found it didn’t work. Actually, due to the transportation safety policy, lighters are not allowed to install fuel during transportation. So make sure you fill the butane fuel correctly when you get the lighter. See how to fulfill butane fuel for your lighter correctly.

While sometimes you bought a new lighter, it worked well when first used. Butane is exhausted after a period of time using, however, you’ll see it doesn’t work well after refilling it. Many people doubt the bad quality of the lighter. In fact, this is not the case, most of this is caused by the different quality of the gas we use.

Need to High or Low your Fuel Adjustment

When your lighter flashes and then goes out. In this case, it is generally caused by the small opening of the valve or the low gas pressure. Just fix it by adjusting the valve slightly larger. Most lighters have a black rubber ring around the bottom of the air inlet, marked with a + sign – sign on this ring.

Use a flat-blade screwdriver to clamp the gap, and in the + direction, adjust it counterclockwise. After the adjustment, test it and it can fire normally. But if the gas exhalation is too loud or to spray open flame, it means that the valve is opened too much. It is necessary to adjust the valve lower.

5-Common-Issues-that-torch-lighters-won’t-light,-how-to-fix-(1)

Try to Ignite but No Spark

More commonly, the igniter end might be dirty. I’ll try to use a can of compressed air to blow and clean the end of the lighter if my lighter isn’t working. If it still doesn’t work after cleaning. The worst-case scenario would be that the ignition is dead.

Burners get Clogged

Please keep your lighters clean regularly. Impurities in cheap butane, lint, and other substances can clog the burner and make your lighter get stuck to work. This quick guide could help you solve it easily.

Air Trapped In Fuel Lines

There are usually other gases left in the fuel lines after the gas of the lighter is used up. First, release the air inside before you refill the butane gas. Try to use a small stick to press the inflated place and deflate until there is no sound of deflation. Once done, put it aside for half an hour before inflating your lighter until the gas inside is stable. Please feel free to check this tutorial on how to fix lighters that won’t light.

Why is torch lighter not igniting after refilling?

Why is my torch lighter not igniting after refilling?

Some people complain that their inflatable lighters can’t hit after refilling the butane fuel. First, you need to purge any remaining air and fuel from the torch lighter. Then, you can pump the butane fuel into the lighter and wait a few minutes before you test it to make sure it’s working. Here are roughly the following reasons for this situation.

1. The gas valve is too open, and the flame disappears in a flash during the fast spread. Try to turn the gas valve down, but adjust it again if the air is not enough to ignite.

2. The pressure of the butane fuel gas you buy is not enough. It is recommended to buy high-pressure butane. Don’t forget to check the pressure outside the cylinder before purchasing it. 

why-is-my-torch-not-igniting-after-refilling

3. The fuel gas purity is not enough. Some unbranded or pirated gas can have your lighter fail to ignite. Some bad gas will also contain impurities, which may cause the lighter outlet to be blocked. Try to discharge the gas in the lighter before refilling it. Well, this situation is relatively rare, so don’t worry too much.

release-the-gas-of-torch-lighter-that-won't-light

4. Wait for 5 minutes after filling the gas before using it. If it still does not work, open the valve slightly (that is, turn slightly to the “+” side). Due to the temperature of butane gas being very low, you need to allow enough time for your lighter to cool off before you try to refill it completely.

fix-the-torch-lighter-that-won't-light

5. The fuel gas didn’t fill in well (many novices encounter this problem). The way to verify is to release the gas and see if any gas comes out. Some torch lighters need to adjust the gas valve to the minimum. Otherwise, it isn’t easy to inflate. If your butane lighter inflator port gets blocked, follow this tutorial to clean your torch lighter.

6. For an inductive touch lighter, please try another button battery if without any sound while touching.

Soft flame lighter compared torch lighter

Soft flame lighter compared torch lighter

There are various excellent cigar lighters on the market, and the type of lighter you use is as important as how to ignite a cigar. So what is the difference between using a soft flame and a jet flame lighter? On that score, many cigar lovers will have their own preferences. But when it comes to cigars, you want to make sure you’re making the best investment for your money.

When getting started there are a few different things you should know about the soft flame lighter and the torch one.

Jet flame lighters overview

Pros

Jet-type flame lighters are dynamic, innovative, and attractive. The first benefit is that the cigar can be lit quickly and thoroughly with an ultra-hot flame, and cigar lovers don’t need to smoke while Igniting it. The second reason is jet-type flame lighters are a good helper for outdoor activities. Its windproof and windproof properties make it easy to light a cigar in challenging conditions such as on the beach or on a boat, or a windy, chilling evening in the garden. If you’re a fan of cigar accessories, there are new high-performance models launched every year from different brands, including single, double, triple, and quadruple cigarette lighters. Some are designed with ejectors at special angles to keep the flame more focused. 

soft-flame-vs-torch-flame

Torch lighters can also remedy uneven cigar combustion by lighting only the uneven part. Now, most lighters come with additional features such as a built-in cigar snipper, a window to monitor fuel levels, and a protective cover. In addition, there are tabletop-type jet flame lighters with large fuel tanks that do not require frequent refueling and are placed in public places for multiple uses.

how-to-use-soft-flame-to-light-a-cigar

Cons

Jet lighters have a flame temperature of about 2,300 degrees, twice that of a gentle flame, which can go too far if you’re not careful.

One of the most common mistakes you can make when using a jet lighter is to light your cigar too close to the bottom for too long because the top of the flame is colorless. For this reason, you need to keep the lighter away from the bottom of the cigar to avoid burning or flavor deterioration caused by heavy butane jets. Also, if you put a butane lighter in your jeans or jacket, fluff and debris can clog the injector. That’s why you need to clean a jet torch lighter,  another solution is occasionally to blow the injector with compressed air to clear the blockage and ensure optimal performance. 

Soft light flame lighters overview

Pros

Soft flame pipe lighters burn at about 1,400 degrees, which is less intense than jet flame lighters, so they are less likely to scorch the cigar and transfer the butane odor to the cigar. Although it takes longer to light a cigar with a gentle flame, a cooler and slower fire preserves the natural flavor of a handmade cigar’s premium leaves and allows for better control of the temperature at the bottom. Some light flame lighters feature a double fire with an extra-wide flame, suitable for lighting cigars with a larger ring diameter.

soft-flame-lighter-vs-torch-lighter

Soft-flame lighters tend to be very durable, it requires little maintenance and has few component failures. And sure thing, it also no ejectors to clean, soft flame lighter can be easily replaced with flints. Some ultra-high-end lighters are light flame lighters because they require less maintenance and last longer. soft flame lighters are easy to travel with, but if you accidentally leave a jet flame lighter in your coat pocket while traveling, you should be prepared to have it confiscated, subject to TSA restrictions.

Cons

The biggest drawback of soft flame pipe lighters is their ability to prevent the wind from blowing out a cigar when it is lit outside. Therefore, you will need more patience when using a soft one. Gently rotate the cigar over a soft flame to light the bottom of the cigar. For many cigar aficionados, one of the pleasures of cigar tasting is to slowly light the cigar so that the initial flavor evolves, but if your wife taps her watch while you sip, stick with a jet flame lighter.

soft-flame-lighter-compare-with-torch-lighter

In fact, jet flame lighters are the first choice, even the only one that is acceptable for the ritual activity of smoking. The reason is that the fuel that butane lighters burn does not affect the smell of tobacco itself — that’s right, the basic lighters that you can buy at any convenience store, gas station, or cigarette store do. But a good torch lighter will serve you well in any given situation and it will last much longer as well.

Whether you light a cigar or pipe, butane lighter fuel is of reliable quality, ensuring that no other chemical residue or flavor will get into your tobacco each time you light it up.
