Types of Lighters and Their Technical Specifications:

1. Traditional Flame Lighters (Zippo):

  • Mechanism: Utilises a flint wheel ignition system where a spark ignites a wick soaked in lighter fluid, contained in a windproof casing.
  • Material: Typically made from metal, Zippos are durable and can be refilled with lighter fluid, making them long-lasting.
  • Features: Windproof design that makes them highly effective in outdoor conditions. Zippos are known for the distinctive "click" sound when opened and closed.

2. Electric and USB Lighters:

  • Mechanism: Operates on electricity, generating a small arc of electric current between electrodes or heating an element to ignite materials.
  • Power Source: Rechargeable via USB, which powers an internal battery. This method eliminates the need for fuel, reducing waste and dependency on fossil fuels.
  • Features: Often flameless, electric lighters can be windproof and moisture-resistant. Ideal, for precision lighting needs and can be used in adverse weather conditions.

3. Hemp Wick Lighters:

  • Composition: Made from natural hemp fibres coated in beeswax, hemp wick offers a natural way to light smoking materials without inhaling butane or other chemicals from traditional lighters.
  • Usage: The wick is lit, and then used to light pipes, candles, or incense, providing more control over the flame and reducing the risk of burns from direct lighter contact.
  • Benefits: Produces a lower temperature flame for a more enjoyable smoking experience, preserving the flavours and aromas of herbs.

4. Speciality Torches (Blazer and Headchef Torches):

  • Mechanism: Utilises butane as fuel to produce a consistent and adjustable jet flame.
  • Features: These torches often include features like a lock for continuous flame, precision flame control, and ergonomic design for ease of use.
  • Applications: Beyond lighting, these torches are used for culinary purposes such as caramelising sugars, browning meringues, or for craft and repair work that requires a concentrated high heat.

5. Butane Lighters:

  • Fuel: Uses butane, a liquefied gas, which provides a clean-burning flame.
  • Features: Typically includes options for flame adjustment and can come in refillable models. Butane lighters are portable, with many offering wind resistance.
  • Variants: Includes subtypes like jet flame lighters which produce a sharp blue flame ideal for lighting in windy conditions.

6. Novelty and Collectible Lighters:

  • Design: Often feature unique, artistic designs or licensed themes. These lighters can be limited editions and are valued as collectables.
  • Functionality: While they serve as functional lighters, the emphasis is often on aesthetics and collectibility rather than advanced technical features.

Our diverse selection of lighters offers options tailored to meet various needs, from everyday utility to specialised applications. Understanding these technical details helps our customers choose a lighter that not only meets their practical requirements but also aligns with their personal preferences or professional needs. Whether you seek a rugged outdoor lighter or a sophisticated accessory, our range is designed to cater to your lighting needs with precision and reliability.
