Years ago I purchased a Z insert. Small reservoir, failed after a month or two. May have been the butane.
Has anyone tried the Zippo branded inserts?
Only had mine for a couple weeks, but they seem to be higher quality. Still a small reservior. YMMV...
4.4 out of 5 stars with nearly three thousand reviews on Amazon. It's probably worth the $13 gamble. I have considered buying one as Zippos are timeless classics.
Edit: definitely don't use zippo butane.
Got an off brand insert...My go to lighter.
Ever burns great with some 15+ year old Ronson butane I got sitting around....Which means it'll burn diesel fuel and kerosene too.....
Thank you for the answers. Spent more on lighters that didn’t work before this. So I’ll take a Chance.
Agree on fuel. Buy the best and have no regrets.
Hopefully their build quality has improved. I bought one of the original Zippo Blu butane lighters and it’s been a problem child. A real shame as I really prefer it to the double torch I’ve been using lately. Let us know how it works for you if you buy one. I’ve got an old Zippo I don’t use and wouldn’t mind buying an insert if it works well.
Traditional Zippos use lighter fluid. Makes the cigar taste bad.
I've been rehabbing some old butane lighters. Biggest problem I've run into is finding adapter tips for good butane cans. The old lighters have many different valves/systems. They do not fill very well with modern tipped butane cans.
My son bought this dual torch insert for his Sterling silver Zippo.
