ive had my ronson for over 5 years. it was cheap and has never failed me. i was all into the more expensive lighters but i always seemed to lose them. lost two zippo's, and three colibri lighters (from $35-55). i bought one of the zippo butane lighter's one time but they are hit or miss. the one i bought would never strike right, and i have tried other people's butane zippo, and there's worked fine.
after all of that and hearing from other forums on how well the ronson worked i bought one and it has never failed me in all the years i've used it. the added bonus is if i lose the ronson it's only $3.
and like the only other way to light a cigar is a match or strip. common sense tells you to wait till the wood part of the match starts to light up.
With your budget I'd look at an ST Dupont lighter - widely acknowledged as the best torches you can buy and built with high grade materials, not to mention classy designs.
and this man knows his stuff
Will people please stop bringing up Ronson lighters? he said High Quality.
there $3 fuc*ing dollars!! you honestly think they are good?
And before you chastize me, keep in mind, i own about 12-15 of them. They are scattered all over the place (i.e. work, boat, all my cars, wifes purse).. Never know when ill need a lighter. Ive also gone through about 10 of them, as they go bad fairly quickly.. When i am going to burn a cigar, i use the Dupont. Never fails
Colibri Quantum Xtreme II Lighters
The world's first high-altitude lighter, Extreme II, is equipped with a windproof Quantum torch flame ignition. Functional at up to 13,000 feet and waterproof to 3 ATM, it features a compass, a steel belt clip, and a lanyard. Great for outdoor activities lovers.
Though, It's not classy. Like a Porsche gold plated lighter. ha
