When it comes to good looks, affordable price, and reliable performance, the XiKAR EX cigar lighter is just what you've been looking for. The durable metal casing protects a powerful windproof flame that really stands up to the elements. Just flip up the cap, push down the trigger, and fire away!
This lighter has a nice natural flame, is very windproof, substantial and sturdy design, great flame adjustability & butane capacity. The only let-down for me is the flip-top hinge gets sticky and difficult to operate. I have cleaned with alcohol several times, and the action improves with cleaning... but after the first cigar is lit, the hinge is again sticky.2 5
Another great product from Xikar. The quality, feel, and ease of operation are excellent. Would recommend.7 3
Have this lighter only with fancier case, but the same lighter. Xikar attracts people wanting to spend lots of money on over-priced and overhyped junk. Sending mine back for the second time. Cannot adjust the flame. Only works when adjustment is set to the max and then it goes out if I tilt the lighter one way or the other. And yes, I use Xikar fuel. Xikar has made a fortune charging ridiculous prices leading the buyer to belive he/she is buying the best. Not worth the money...6 3
I got tired of cheap lighters giving out, so I bought this lighter. Yes, it is windproof - amazing. I accidently ran it over with my car and it still works great!5 6
