- What are the differences in types of flames for lighters?
Torch Lighters (Thin, needle-like flame--also windproof).
Torch lighters have the hottest and most powerful flame (They can reach temperatures of over 2,500 degrees (fahrenheit)!) They will keep a consistent stream of thin air propelled fire no matter what angle it's held at. For this reason, it's particularly used for pipes and cigars, but can be used for cigarettes, etc..
Windproof Jet Lighters (Wide, cone-shaped flame).
Windproof lighters' flames have a wider circumference than torch lighters (so they're less powerful), but they'll still light cigars in seconds and cigarettes in less than a second! (It can reach temperatures of nearly 2,000 degrees (fahrenheit).) The flame should always be held upwards (unlike torch lighters that can be held at any angel. Like torch lighters, windproof lighters' flames are windproof and can be used in any weather condition. Some of our windproof lighters have brilliant red or green flames (see below).
Multi-torch lighters are more rare. They produce a force, so intensely hot, that it will light anything cobustible in under a second! It's mainly used for thick cigars. But be careful, if it's used with pipes, damage may be incurred.
Red Flame Lighters (Wide, cone-shaped flame)
This flame type is just like the windproof jet flame (above) except, the flame's color is bright red! At first, it's a regular blue jet flame... But after about a second, the flame turns into a brilliant bright red "laser" flame. This occurs because
there is a catalyst on the heat coils which changes the color of the flame once it reaches a higher temperature. People love this flame, it's a real eye catcher!
Green Flame Lighters (Wide, cone-shaped flame)
This flame type is just like the red flame above, except green. Green flame lighters are increasingly becoming hard to find. Red flame lighters are replacing them. All of the green flame lighters we have left in stock have been discontinued. So get them before they're gone!
Regular Flame Lighters (NOT WINDPROOF - Does not damage pipes)
Lighters of this type have a classic "regular flame", or "natural flame". Lighters with this type of flame are ideal pipe lighters. This flame should be used on delicate or valuable pipes that should not be damaged. The natural flame doesn't burn up tobacco as quick as torch or jet flames, but it's necessary to preserve smoking pieces that should be kept in good condition.
- Is using our butane lighters bad for the environment or me?
No! Not at all. In fact the only byproducts of burning the butane from our lighters are: water and carbon dioxide. These are obviously harmless to the environment and also harmless for you to breathe in while lighting up.
