Honest Torch lighter Review 2020 August | Comparison

I’m going to talk about the torch lighter that I just bought. I’ve been using it for a couple of days and I’m very very happy with it. So it’s time to talk about it, this was recommended by someone on Instagram they know who they are. I greatly appreciate a big thumbs up when I was talking about lighters, and I want to get something for the pouch because I had the little cheapo one in there, which happened to fit fine.

 

I just wanted a slender lighter that I would be able to use for many years. so I wanted decent quality lighter this one was recommended. When I first saw it, I’m like that’s it, I have to get that one. And I weighed a little bit hesitated because I don’t really want to spend 30 bucks on the new lighter. However, my mind straightly told me I should get it, and finally, I did.

So um yeah here’s the butane lighter it’s a very simple concept you see on a standard lighter we have a wheel which rubs on a flint there’s a spring that pushes a flint up there so it rubs on the fly it makes a spark and as we’re sparking the same time, we’re hitting this little button here which releases the gas, this is like forked in there if you’ve never taken a later part. And when you push the button down at pivots and lifts up a little collar which let’s gas come through. So in one sweeping motion, we’re sparking. You’re letting gas out and obviously, when we’re doing this, we’re holding the button down so gas is coming out till we let go and we let go the flame goes out. Simple concept great designs in a million layers.

This one is different, there is no button there instead of the buttons down here, so we have an on and off switch essentially. The little dot is off and the fire is on, so what you can do with this, and the concept behind it is you can use the lighter to spark tinder or kindling or whatever to start a fire without the gas. If you run out of fuel, you can still light a fire, but you can still spark your lighter without wasting gas.

On this lighter, if I want to spark it, you know and there’s gas in there I’m gonna be hitting that button every time. I’m saying so it’s hard to spark this without hitting the button.

So again I can spark this as much as I want without wasting any of the gas. All you have to do is rotate this and turn the gas on the second, you’re gonna hear it that’s the on position any off position, so that’s essentially replacing our button alright. So you turn it on spark it and then there’s our flame. I have a set kind of high you can adjust this higher or even lower. It has a strong butane plane, all right you guys can see that right and when I watch this later off simply rotate. The design is very well, it makes it hands-free because you have to hold on to its button if you use the previous lighter.

Hand-free is the most advantages of this torch jet lighter, so turn on the spark that left it on the table if I want it sits upright I can do projects if I want to. I don’t know heat color something anodized something like that you know, or if I want to you know shove it deep into you know my fire. Then I’m trying to get started whatever the case may be it can use it hands-free. Two benefits of leaving the gas off, just sparking it or using a lighter in a hands-free fashion which is really really cool now.

Of course, you’re thinking alright well you keep sparking the thing what happens when the Flint runs out. There’s a little screw in the bottom, and you unscrew that you have a little spring in your Flint, so you can easily replace the Flint. The torch lighters have a couple of different colors. I was very tempted to get they like a sapphire blue, really vibrant, really cool, they also like you know spectrum rainbow color one and I think there’s a there’s a fourth color. But anyway, I end up going with the gunmetal gray. I’m very happy with it and it’s replacing the cheapo layer.

Thanks do the job even better and it’s kind of classy and different. So that’s my pocket EDC option for a long time like I said I might change. They also make a black one, that’s what it was I’ll get the black born in the future replace it with a black light and get the black Fisher Space. Pen alright gonna be kind of cool to a little black set up there, I just like having a consistent a theme I guess. But anyway there you go if you guys have that later. Let me know what you think of it long-term if you have all the lighters, they like you know to write those. As well people love lighters, I love using lighters for all kinds of stuff.

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.

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
