The Duponts tank is small, if you want a realiable lighter check out the blazer pb207 or cg-001

Duponts tank is not small as comparison to any lighter in its class..

And having said that, the Blazer is not in its class.. Infact the only thing the blazer is good for is holding an obscene amount of fuel. Its ugly and unreliable.

Duponts are OG, the best on the market for reliabilty, and have that distinctive ring when you open them that any lighter person or smoking aficionado will recognize right off the bat.

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.

BTW
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

I want a nice lighter. The use would be for end times/survival.
I'm sure a Zippo is better than a $1 plastic Bic lighter..

I want a Colibri lighter. Those things look pimp. Hopefully they're worth the $100 price tags

if you want it for survival, dont buy any of those first two crappy Colibris..

bugatti lighters are very dependable also..

after many more months of use, my ST Dupont still hasnt missed a beat
