What’s the best way to light a Cigar?

As a cigar smoking lover, having a torch lighter that can be used repeatedly for a long time can reduce my troubles. I don’t like to use disposable lighters, lighting my cigar is a laborious task. According to a report saying that plastic lighters cause a lot of environmental pollution every year, so I’m trying to treat this earth as kindly as possible.

One of the best ways to light up your cigar is to use a butane lighter. These types of lighters are very suitable for people who smoke cigars, especially butane lighters with concentrated firepower can prevent the taste of cigars from being contaminated by impurities.

Used this great hack to bring your lighter back to life

If you are using a torch jet lighter for cigar smoking, or just use a butane lighter for home use. It is also important to learn about the cleaning method of the lighter, which can ensure that the lighter can work normally for a long time. Well, actually, I was not very familiar with these techniques from the beginning, I also experienced the same troubles as you are now.

The first thing when cleaning the lighter, you need to do is to lower the flame of the lighter. The main reason for this is related to your personal safety. It is very important to be extra careful every time you clean the lighter to avoid severe burns. Make sure to set the length of the flame to the minimum flame setting, so as not to cause the flame to catch fire for some reason and not burn or burn badly.

Next step, using a matchstick. You will take the wooden end of the match (the non-ignitable end), turn the light over, and paste it into the butane valve. Once the matchstick is inserted, press it. If you are not sure where the butane valve is on the lighter, place it at the other end of the bottom of the ignition device. While pressing, you will hear a faint hissing sound, it’s because the air inside the lighter is released from the inside. Do this several times until all the air is released.

Using a can of compressed air can help you clean the combustion chamber of the jet flame lighter. If you want to remove all dust and other contaminants that may enter this part of the lighter. If the combustion chamber accumulates too much dust and debris, then it will clog and cannot be ignited.

Finally, wipe the entire lighter with a soft cloth, make sure that the cloth is dry and completely clean. If you should have to refill the lighter during cleaning, this will wipe away any excess butane that might have spilled on to the lighter.

How to Refill a Butane Torch Lighter

How to Refill a Butane Torch Lighter? Today I will share my experience about refilling the gas jet light. This method has never failed for me and I can say that doing a purge has greatly increased the number of cigars that can be lit before a refill.

Release all tank pressure by pressing on the inlet valve with a small screwdriver or a XIKAR MTX Multi-Tool bleeder. Hold the lighter vertically while bleeding the valve. Repeat this several times until all fuel/ gas pressure is released.

Set flame adjustment to the lowest setting (-).


Turn lighter in an upside-down position and insert a butane tank tip directly on the fuel valve. Do not shake the can of butane! This increases the amount of propellant in the mixture that goes into the lighter, and should not be done. Press down firmly for about 5 seconds.

Before igniting lighter, wait 3-4 minutes.? This allows excess butane to evaporate and gas inside lighter to reach room temperature.


Set flame level to the desired height by turning the flame adjuster wheel.

Is the beard straightener really work?

A friend of mine showed me this beard straightener and I knew I had to try it. His beard is always perfect and when I saw the beard straightener I thought it would be perfect as a travel straightener for my own hair. 


After several months of use, I decided to share my experience on this hair straightener. According to its advertising, this beard straightening comb is designed in the USA to achieve different styles for all hair and beards, either curl, straighten, volumize, or simple brushing. Saying advanced MCH technology offers a fast, even heat distribution. Negative ionic technology yields better results.

The low setting works but takes a slower pass to straighten. Can use a bit faster pass to get a generally clean look. High temp works a little faster and provides a very straight hair look. The comb part has just the right amount of grab to it and keeps the heat away from your skin. My older ones weren’t so nice. This site is much better also. Easier to use on a beard and if you just comb through it as you would with a regular brush, you end up with a nice straight, longer looking beard. Small enough to use on the mustache too. All in all, very pleased with the product after several months of use. Case, not heat resistant so be careful heating it up and letting it cool down.

It would be nice to have a heat resistant pad to place on like another one I have. If you lay a weighted object over a handle while heating/cooling, it will keep the head portion up off the counter so as not to burn.

I’ve tried other small-size straighteners but none seem to pack enough punch to give me the results I want. I don’t care if something is ‘made for women’, I don’t need pink flowers on my beauty products. I just need them to work! And this one does. It comes in a simple but nice drawstring bag, making it even easier to throw in my carry-on or in my purse, and the two settings let me choose how much heat I want to apply and makes it less damaging to my hair. It left my hair straight and shiny.

If you are low-maintenance like me, you will probably like this heated straightener brush. This is a great alternative for when you don’t have enough time in the morning for a traditional flat iron session, or are just simply afraid to use a traditional flat iron because of how hot they get, but still need a little extra help taming your hair, this is for you. It’s safer on the hands and less damaging to the hair.

For your reference.

Cyelk Knife Sharpener Review | 2020

I seldom use handheld knife sharpeners, it works by using two pieces of tungsten carbide in a “V formation to wear away the metal on either side of a blade, creating a new edge. I tried electric sharpeners. These sharpeners didn’t help me sharpen my knife, so I decided to go back to the traditional knife sharpener.

When I saw the product with a brand name “Cyelk“, I have to say, the pictures of this knife sharpener attracted me at first glance. Then, I found it’s different than most sharpener on the market, it featured with 4 in 1 knife and scissor sharpening designed. This may not special for others, but for me, it’s my first time seeing this one. I tried to buy the product. During the epidemic climate, people stay at home and shop online. Logistics at the time get busy than usual, meanwhile, they should keep a distance from each other during working, it takes longer to deliver. But I finally got this sharpener for my dull knives.

I can’t wait to use it on my knives, like the handle on the side to make it easier to use perfectly for both hands. On the bottom, you have a non-slip handle for stable use. I tried a few of my old knives and also achieved a great result with them. But you have to admit that it does not work for all kinds of knives, actually, at this price, it does a good job already.

Just like the actual use of the product, the sharpening effect was very important. Sharpen a few knives at a time. I was able to quickly restore the sharpness of the passivated blade and helped me to solve the problem. Instead of spending money on a new knife, you are spending money on a good sharpener. I’ve found it now. I am happy to use this knife as a new one.

For attentive consumers will find that they are also kindly equipped with brushes and gloves. My husband’s hands are rougher than mine, the glove protects my hands against the discomfort of holding the handle for too long, and it seems to protect against cuts. The brush can be used to clean the gap of the knife sharpener, what a nice household good!

How to make a jet torch lighter work perfectly

How to make a jet torch lighter work perfectly? This will be rather wordy but perhaps my long-term experiences with these can help others frustrated by the unit as I initially was. 

Initially (~4y ago) when I first tried these jet lighters (as did a friend), we were both very frustrated as they seemed to work well for a short spell (a few weeks) then sort of died. More clicks, fewer lights progressively, etc. Over time, however, we learned that these units just need to be ‘understood’ and little quirks (if unnoticed) cause them to progressively fail.

We tried the high end’ butanes, the ultra mega 5,000x virgin filtered GLacier butane blah blah blah, no improvement. But here’s what we learned that has made all the difference…

As noted by some – the butane tank is relatively small so refills are needed perhaps a bit more often than other torches, remember there are 3 jets too. Well, if you look closely at the ‘fill port’ on the bottom, you’ll notice it is also a flame intensity/output control with a standard screwdriver type ‘slot’ for turning to adjust…noting the + and – symbols to show which way to turn the port-adjuster screw.

Now, probably 80% of you are like ‘yah yah tell me something I didn’t know!’ right? Well here’s the thing… just by virtue of ‘filling’ the tank with a butane canister tip, that ‘activity’ alone causes ever so slightly the adjustment screw to turn a bit – so over time with each refill the adjustment was getting turned DOWN so eventually click click click SPUTTER pop pop fizz ‘Nuthin. Because the adjustment is unwittingly being reduced to non-functionality bit by bit with each refill ERGO, make sure you re-adjust the fill port screw every so often BACK UP to a working amount (may only be half a turn makes all the difference.

Second, when refilling, we learned that sort of pushing the canister tip in-out whilst also moving the lighter level, vertical, upside down, sideways, etc bleeds a lot of the air out allowing for a greater fill…BUT BEWARE…

1) It further causes the intensity screw to ‘reduce’ fractions at a time, so again, mind the setting screw and adjust it to backup a titch. AND


2) doing so gives a greater fill but also causes the unit/fuel to be VERY COLD. The lighter often wont light for a while unless/until you warm it back up (put it in pocket for 5 mins, hold it in your hand etc. The butane doesn’t like to light when very cold. So if you’ve just filled the unit, there’s a good chance it’s COLD and click click click ‘nuthin. Just warm it up and away she goes.


Finally, every so often take one of those PC compressed air cans and blast out the jet/spark area that tends to gather pocket lin\ lt, etc. preventing a spark and thus ignition. A good blast with your own mouth often helps almost as well. Keep it clean/lint-free.

Lighter-Quadruple-Refillable-Gunmetal

Conclusion


1. Repeated filling causes death by fractions, the adjuster screw sloooooow (and imperceptibly!!) reducing each time you insert the canister tip. Keep it adjusted up accordingly after every few fills.


2. Tip the lighter left right up down this way that way whilst inserting the canister tip over and over as if ‘pumping’ the lighter while refilling, it will fill MUCH better, BUT


3. Will be COLD (needs to warm back up to light well) and will cause the screw to reduce even more – so keep it adjusted up, as above.


4. Keep the jet/spark area clean.


We now have no problems whatsoever going on 3+ years with a few of these lighters each. Not a speck of problems. Easy peasy we just needed to learn the nuances that make a good lighter seem like a bad one that dies. If you try the above, I bet almost everyone will realize the same issues. Anyway good luck.I
