What lighter holds the most fuel..?

jd50aejd50ae Posts: 7,900 ✭✭✭✭✭
I don't care what kind of flame, or how many. I just want a lighter that holds the most butane and lasts the longest between refills. And right now my Bics holds the most and last the longest. I would love my 5 Vegas lighter if it did not have to be refilled so often.

    Essential Gear Trekker Lighter
    Some of the Lotus lighters have large capacity tanks.
    And look up Vertigo Radar or Vortex.
    In Fumo Pax
    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Get a tabletop. Some arent even that big. If not, it really does matter what kind of flame... double and triple torch will eat up your butane. I have a xikar crossover that does really well, but they don't make them anymore. There are some cool looking clear lighters that you can see how much is left and the tanks look huge, I'll search to see which those were...

    This is sort of what I was talking about. These are the Xikar Tech's... says large fuel tank, but I have never used one.

    And it doubles as a table lighter with a switch on the side that keeps it lit. Cheap, too....

    Is that a culinary torch?

    Here is mine. I took video practicing lighting a candle before I tried my cigars. I have found it holds more fuel than anything I could purchase. ;);)

    I own the dual flame, lasts a good long while, and I love it. The whole reason I bought it was the tank size.

    One box of Diamond kitchen matches holds 300. They generally come three boxes in a pack, for like three bucks. That computes out to one whole craplode of butane. Light a fleet of cigars with that. Three bucks should hold you for three years.

    No, it's just a very reliable, inexpensive butane torch. The entire grip, obviously, is the fuel tank and, as I said, it doubles as a table lighter by using a clip-on base to keep it standing and a switch that locks the flame in the "on" position. In advertising I've seen for these it says the flame will burn at 2300degrees Fahrenheit. That would make it handy in the shop, too. I personally think these are the greatest thing since sliced bread.... Lol

    Not many will want to carry around a table top....esp. in your front pocket.....is that a lighter in your pocket or are you just burning to see me? Xikar makes good models that hold a lot of butane...I like the Exodus model myself.

    I'm not trying to sell this model to ya (lol) but believe it or not I usually carry it in my shirt pocket. It helps keep the fuel warm on cold days and we all know a lighter with warm fuel works better. The clip-on base stays on my table so the whole thing isn't real bulky in my pocket. And the best part is that I paid $7 for it, including shipping. For that price, if it ever quits working properly i can just throw it away and buy another one.

    There really isn't any name on it. I bought it on eBay and if memory serves it was shipped from Hong Kong. The easiest way to get info on it is to look up eBay item number 261213063443. I tried to copy it and/or get a URL for it so I could attach it to a post but that doesn't work with eBay so I suggest looking up the item number.

    When I bought mine the price was only $7.00 but I see they've gone up a bit.....

    That's a nice lighter. But, for a tenth of the price, I'll stick with mine. Thanks, my friend......
