    A big drawback of the Xikar Element is that is extremely heavy. Great table lighter, but very impractical as a pocket lighter.

    The Bugatti insert will swap out in a zippo shell as well. I found this out when my Bugatti started to look tatty.

    No soft flame options? I know they’re not as quick as a torch, especially on the larger ring gauges, but work well with patience.

    I use a Vertigo Glock. Triple flame, and just the right size to fit in the watch pocket of my jeans. Have never had a problem and it was $20!

    My wife bought me a Dupont – lasted about three months then went in for a repair that cost $75!!! I retired it.

    Many thanks for a great and accurate review. I purchased the Jetliner for 12$. Lights up perfectly particularly in the golf course. I spent a couple of years ago $120 in a beautiful Colibrí lighter…which gave me problems from day. I have returned twice. So…Many thanks!

    Hi, I am in the market for a cigar light for my boyfriends birthday in a few weeks. I myself dabble in cigars and know the names, different wrappers, etc. However I am not all that familiar with the lighter scene. I’ve been doing research and played with a few and narrowed down and would like some feedback or even suggestions. The S.T. Dupont is obviously the cream of the crop, with mixed reviews and I was one swipe away from buying the Maxijet slim. If he wants a nicer one he’ll have to marry me. Moving on, the Lotus Black label flat flame first edition. Seems pretty legit and small enough for his two cigar case. I found the Lotus Black label Kronos and I remember my bf saying the best cigar lighter he ever used had three jets. With that said, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Still love the Dupont…..I have a huge collection from Cuba many years ago. They came with Cohiba, H. Upmann and soforth logos.

    So back up a little on the zippo and liquid butane….Wasn’t there some research done with using them and whether or not they affect the flavor? If I recall, it was mentioned that as long as you let the Zippo run for a bit to expel some of the butane to burn off, that there was no noticeable difference and in fact produced less of a chance of any scorching. Thoughts?
