I have made it through at least 10 cigars now with no issue. You do have to slowly click the lighter to make sure the fuel/air/ignite is correct. If you click it fast it takes two clicks to light.I think one issue is improper set up of these lighters. I took mine to a cigar shop for a free fill with purchase of cigars. She first purged the air out of the lighter then put just a tiny amount of fuel into the lighter then purged again. She then filled the lighter with high quality butane and adjust the lighter for me. I have absolutely no complaints about this lighter. I purchased one for my dad and one for myself. The lighter reminds of the old school zippo lighters.
I have had my lighter for a few years and it still works great. I carry it with me always and it has lasted very well. I would buy another one if I ever lost it.
I've had FOUR of these in over 20 years and they flatout WORK - for a long time - consistently - no problems. I've bought Xicar because of the lifetime guarantee and have about 4 of them but you need 4 because I use one for 2 months, it quits working and it takes 2 months to get it back from Xicar so I have their other lighters for backups to their backups but my Blazer's rock. I recommend the total clear one so you can see at a glance your fuel level and also purge before EVERY refill. Forget Colibri - beautiful but not functional. Downside: the round barrel feels chunky in my pocket but I know it's close by.
This lighter looks great, and it feels great with a rubber-ish covering/texture. However, mine started having issues after only using it a few times. The lighter itself will only produce a flame about 50% of the time. When I click the button, I see a spark but no flame. Seems to be less likely to work if the ambient temp is above 80*F or so. Second, from day one the button on the side, which is supposed to open/flip up the top cover, did not work. And then after about a month the button on the side fell off altogether. This is under very light use sitting in my truck console, no banging or drops and only used it maybe a dozen times total. The lighter looks and feels great, but it isn t built for durability or reliability at all. Mine was a gift; otherwise I d want to look into returning it.
The lighter wouldn't take any fluid, just squirted all over the place. Called support and they sent me some adapter tips....non of which actually fit the lighter. But after cutting the tip on the bottle itself, I was able to force some liquid in by holding it horizontally. But excess dripped everywhere.Never lights on the 1st click. And now I have to hold it horizontally just to get it to light. As if too much gas is being pushed thru it. If it was $12 it'd be worth it...but not at $30.
This is one of the best and easiest lighting lighters I ve ever had. One click is all it takes. I ve had it for well over a year now and it s still going strong. Even the black enamel finish has held up very well. One thing anyone buying this lighter and many others as well is that it s not a large capacity tank, so it may be frequent filling. There is no visible indicator, so you just have to pay attention to the flame as it starts running low. One other thing worth noting; be sure to evacuate the air from the tank before refilling - you ll get a smaller flame or it might not light if you don t.
This lighter is ok, not great as the Blazer web site proclaims.http://www.blazerproducts.com/lighters/details.php?prodId=38It is not "wind resistant" whatsoever, a light blow will put it out! At least with the one I got today from FSS, the adjusting knob needs to be on the higher side for the lighter to ignite. Just my 2 cents. FSS has the best price out there.
First Off "NOT WIND PROOF" slightest breeze she won't lite or stay lit. Not enough flame even at max adjustment. It's not much better than a book of matches... The only good thing about it, you can see the fuel... Wish I didn't buy it!
Went from hard to light to not lighting at all.
I've won 4 butane lighters on auction and they all failed. The last was a Blazer Scout which would not hold any fuel consistently. Its great to have a butane torch lighter when outside or on the GC but cannot rely on them. I recommend ZIPPO's for the money.
