Non-disposable lighters reduce the impact of plastic on the environment (360 million disposable lighters are tossed every year). Image when you see these plastic lighters everywhere in landfills, or disposable lighters found in the stomachs of dead birds, you will be shocked. If you’re a cigar lover or BBQ fantasy that uses lighters frequently, it’s best to use a metal refillable torch lighter to reduce plastic waste.
What’s disposable lighter?
The disposable lighter is composed of more than 20 parts including plastic shell, sparker, hand pressing, wind hood, fire ring, ignition spring, leather pad, sponge pad, etc. This kind of lighter is a small fire-fighting device, without an inflator. And it cannot be inflated repeatedly, yet the flame size is adjustable, simple structure, and easy to use.
What is a refillable torch lighter?
As we’re talking above if you don’t want to produce more plastic disposable lighters yearly, the Torch is your best bet. A torch lighter uses butane fuel as opposed to ordinary lighter fluid. By filling butane, powering it, then it causes the lighter to burn much hotter, reaching temperatures of up to 2,500° F. It is easily recognizable by its bright blue flame. And most of them can be triple or four jet flames. Toss it in a tool box, a survival kit, or slip it in your pocket—it covers all of those uses.
Where to get the Best Non-Disposable Lighters
China is the world’s largest lighter producer, with an annual production capacity of tens of billions, of which about 60% are exported abroad, occupying 95% of the world’s market share. The Man’s Toolbox provides torch lighters of the Jobon series, including single flame, tripe flames, and four flames. And these Jobon triple jet flame cigarette lighters are so well designed.
Good value and this is something you need to know how to fill the lighter with pure butane.
1.Before refilling a butane lighter, it is necessary to drain any remaining fuel from the lighter. Using the small screwdriver press the fuel-refilling nozzle (at the bottom) to remove the leftover fuel.
2.Turn the flame adjustment screw clockwise until it stops to turn off the fuel flow before refueling.
3.Point the fuel nozzle up and push the container of fuel into the lighter. Turn the fuel nozzle down and wait while the lighter refills. It is important not to pump the fuel can into the lighter while refueling because this may cause the fuel tank to burst.
4.Once the lighter is refilled, allow it to rest until the fuel becomes room temperature. Butane fuel is cold while refilling. It will expand as it gets to room temperature.
