Cool looking cases but damn these new ones break so quickly.
2 broken within a year and I'm only an occasional user.

Can you guys recommend a differnt brand?
Not interested in bic, must be a refillable.

>>2228620
here you go, refillable butane lighter a thousand times more reliable than a zippo and doesn't make you look like a tryhard. $8 for a pack of 5

The local drug store sells pic related for 3 bucks a piece. Works flawlessly and has a big tank.

Zippos are really cool lighters and I like them, but for pure utility, nothing competes with the Bic Classic. Durable, long lasting, cheap, reliable. If they get wet they will have to dry out- that's the only downside I can think of.

Yeah man, I really want a non-chink butane lighter. Fucking hate all the junk from there.

Don't even start with "who made your cellphone" or something, you faggot apologists. You would be surprised with what can be bought from europe, the middle east, or some other asian country.

Clipper, they have a tamper for packing your dudeweed cigarettes. And are refillable. And still cheap enough to not mind losing them. But people will think your are a pothead if you have one.

Maybe I'm wrong but I dont think zippo is supposed to be the most utilitarian lighters in modern times. They are more of a nice, classic, pocket lighter that have a great feel to them. Nothing competes with the reliability/price of a classic bic when it comes to the outdoors though. This might not suit most of the hipsters' urge to be edgy though.
>check out this obscure shit I found and I'm the only one with the taste to appreciate it.
Lol this shit is so unbearable.

Anyways, it is wrong to hate on the zippo in this context. They are very well made *for what they are* which is basically a collector's type retro all metal wicked lighter. They have a great feel to them and work pretty well for non survival purposes. The fluid running out though is just a design characteristic that will always make them inferior for outdoors/camping uses obviously. Despite that I love zippos- the noise they make alone is worth it though lol.

Cheap chinese lighters. Basically like bic, but refillable and with piezo ignition. They sell 3packs for 1€ at pretty much any gasstation or hardwarestore around here.

Until a few years ago the Imcos where dirt cheap too, something between 5-10$ depending on the model. Sadly the company shut down and the machines where shipped to Japan. They still produce them, maybe even a bit better QC than befor but since then they've quadrupled in price. I hunt for old ones on eBay from time to time. The Brass No.5 is nice too though, might get one of those.

Why would you use anything else? I don’t know why anyone would have a problem with them being disposable either since half the time I lose them before using up all the fuel. In fact, I usually just keep several of them just kind of on rotation floating around in my stuff.

If you want to not look like a tool, you should have 2-3 bic lighters with the safeties removed, a few boxes of matches and a zippo

Zippos are crap

They are made from chrome and nickel which is harmful to your health
>>
>>2228620
I don't understand how you "break" a zippo unless you are an obnoxious child who fiddles compulsively, but there is a more robust zippo called armor and a chink brand called "Zorro" which looks like a zippo on steriods. Look for it on aliexpress.
>>
>>2228620
Just use a bic, zippos are for looking cool.
>>
>>2233659
Yeah I got one last week. It's pretty dope with the mod. Two take aways:
1.You need to bleed both when the lighter is "empty" and after you fill it and it stops. When you bleed it after the fill and it stops, you depress until you can clearly hear a change in tone of the escaping gas (it is very audible) then fill again until no more gas gets in.
2. Butane is not wind proof unless you get a torch, but the basic Zippo inserts are fairly windproof. Put both in front of fans to test.
>>
>>2233659
How long does that last? If it’s anything like a dab torch, you’ll be refilling it even more often than a regular one.
>>
>>2234089
Zippos are based. They smell good, they sound good, and they feel good. But they are not for the outdoors or survival kek- everyone knows that. Some people just have no taste; you have to appreciate things for what they are.

That "poink" noise and the feel of that hinge clicking, and the feel of the wheel spinning is fantastic though.

>>2237876
It was an experiment I did when I was bored, read dummy.
Anyways its large size also means that it can concentrate enough weak light into igniting a fire onto tinder. So yes, usable innawoods. Obviously shouldn't be your first or only choice but I'd rather pack that than a zippo. Being able to magnify things is also a nice plus.

the official butane inserts zippo sells are kind of shitty, they're made in china and the ignition on mine is extremely unreliable even with a fresh refill and the gas turned up, not to mention they have basically no wind resistance compared to regular wick inserts. haven't tried any other brands to see how they compare
>>
>>2228620
If you want the best lighter out there it's the Douglas Field S. The have a cheaper neo line that's great too. Been sold out for awhile.
-waterproof
-windproof
-very robust
-sealed and will hold fluid for months
-can use zippo wicks and flint in a pinch
Cons: The extra compartments are a bit gimmicky but work. It's a bit harder to carry than a zippo. Mine is a bit temperamental with wick length.

What the fuck..? OP, you still here? Care to elaborate? I have units purchased in 2006 still going strong.

The fuel evaporation problem is annoying for sure, but I work around it by putting my fueled up Zippo into a cellophane bag, which I will then wrap around the lighter tightly to make it into a nice, airtight bundle. I have a Zippo wrapped in plastic like this right now, going for 6 weeks now without problems and without needing a refill.

Zippos are old school for sure, but I still enjoy how maintainable and robust they are. You can easily resuscitate one even decades later as long as the case is sound. They're perfect for the DIY type of guy.

As for butane stuff, I swear by pic related. I've seen them being sold under many brand names, like Torjet, Matteo and Firelight. Piezo ignition, but at buck-50 a piece you can afford to buy several as backups, and if you're unhappy with the default flame size, the top comes apart easily with basic tools and you can then adjust the flame as much as you want. Also, refillable by design, so one will serve you until the piezo dies. Highly recommended as far as chinkshit goes.

And of course, the smart individual would always carry on him/her your classic box of stickmatches for redundancy anyway.
>>
>>2228942
I have a couple original ones; they're a little overrated though I love them. One burns first flick most of the time, other usually takes 2. Evaporation still happens close enough to a zippo where it doesn't really matter. I carry lighter liquid on my keychain either way.

I've always hated zippo for it leakage in a warm pocket and the evaporation quickly leaving you without a flame. Like said earlier good for playing with and looks but thats about it..
Honestly I'd rather have a bic than a zippo.

Depends what you want. Personally, I like lighters and have several Douglas lighters. Their NEO line was $25 and is great but not as nifty. The one with the two caps to be completely water proof is my favorite. It's been in my pocket for years now. I own several Zippos too and still buy Bic.
>>
>>2245089
>until you have no fluid

These issues are at least fixable. But those plasma spark toys are down and out for good when they break. You will then have no choice but to buy a replacement, and pray you didn't get a lemon this time. A Zippo at least works in a world without electricity. I mean they literally burn anything with a low enough flashpoint that catches from the flint.

>until the wheel snaps
Has literally never happened to me with a real Zippo.

I'd say in that case you have bigger problems than your lighter not working.

I have a plasma lighter and it is something of a toy. The battery does go fast if you're using it a lot, and the arcs that light things are so small that you have to really touch the lighter to the tinder. And if the tinder touches the lighter, it's easy to foul the electrodes.
So, it's neat, and it's probably nice for smokers, but a jet butane lighter still tops my preference for /out/ stuff, followed by a normal butane lighter.

I wrap my Zippo in plastic. Last time I got 6 weeks out of it. Sure, it's a pain to unwrap it every time, but I'll tolerate it, 'cause the results are so good.

Dude just buy clippers, they are as good like Bic plus are refillable and the flint is replaceable

holy shit bro could you make your lighter any less accessible?

torjet are easily the best lighters one can buy. but they can get quite hot when using for too long

also there is dissim.com
they look cool but the price...
they are also designed to be used upside down without problems

you're supposed to use slow match (artillery fuse) in those, not just plain rope. and yes they are an absolute pain to start a fire with, I'd almost rather use a bow drill.

>holy shit bro could you make your lighter any less accessible?

It's not really that bad. I'll wrap it so that the package unfurls automatically from the weight of the lighter, when I hold on to the top of the baggy, and let the lighter drop. I find the lighter's extended service life per top up well worth it. I don't tie any knots to the bag, that would be stupid.

An added benefit is that the plastic stops the lighter from leaking into my pocket, stopping gasoline burns. I only do this when I use the Zippo casually, when I know that I won't be needing it frequently.

I wouldn't keep one burning for longer than 10 seconds.

I got something similar to this for Christmas many years ago. I dont know if your picture is supposed to be some popular thing or something, but mine was not fancy.
Anyway, I was concerned it would evaporate out. My dad and brother told me I was crazy. I told them they were stupid.
Lost it, found it like 2.5 years later, opened it, lit on the first flick and stayed "filled" for another year. I was too embarrassed to tell them.

I actually bought them from ClawGear for 5€ each before until someone else pointed out to me the name on the inside of the lid.
Now I buy 3 of them from amazon for around 7€ ^^

Do "kerosene lighters" on Ali Express actually use kerosene or is that just chinglish for lighter fluid? Supposedly kerosene won't work in a zippo, never tried it myself though.
>>
>>2251114
Here's a crazy idea, bud. If redundancy is that important to you, buy two lighters. If you're suggesting bic lighters are robust you're an idiot. But it seems you don't since you want to suggest carry two or more bic lighters as a practical solution.
>>
>>2228796
>Basically any lighter is better. Zippos are a novelty item. I use mine, ya, but would NEVER depend on it in a pinch.
They are for lighting cigarettes when it's windy. That's about it desu. I still have the zippo I bought on my 18th birthday
>>
>>2251161
>has never used a bic lighter just like he hasn't used his magic autismo lighter

bic lighters are pretty robust.

if you need a reliable lighter enough that you need to spend >$30 on one for "quality" then you need at least two.
the fact that this concept is alien to you means you don't actually use your lighter and are an /out/ LARPER who doesn't actually /out/
>>
>>2251252
Bic lighters are a bitch to use in the cold and won't hold a flame in wind or standalone. They're not really up for anything extreme. I learned that snowmobiling. They're fine for 99% of activities as long as you're mindful not to crack it. You're probably just in a 3 season and dry use case.

>bitch to use in the cold and won't hold a flame in wind or standalone.
that's because you don't remove the pussy clip.
meaning you don't actually use the thing.

How do you modify a bic to stay on and in the wind? I'm generally curious. You're throwing around larp and glamp like you're a pro so.

>>2251374

Oh? And here I thought it just made it harder to spark it

>>2251389
>Intentional misinterpretation
You know that's not what I was referring to.
Not unlike a larper to do such a thing.

>It's so windy everywhere
Do you not build up fuel or a shelter first?

Oh no that's right you're in a RV bus my bad
>>
>>2230672
piezos also light if you accidentally get them wet and just shake the water off. There's really no reason to not use them other than not looking cool enough for the larpers
>>
>>2228620
Yeah a magnisium block, your welcome
>>
>>2251133
>or is that just chinglish for lighter fluid?

I think it's just this. You'll generally need something with a very low flash point, before it ignites in a wick lighter. I don't think kerosene will work.
>>
>>2228702
I wouldn't even trust that shit to efficiently light a cigarette in a 1mph breeze, and you expect me to use it to light a fire in potentially a worst case scenario? No thanks. If I REALLY need a basic plastic cigarette lighter I'll just use a bic with the safety popped off.
If you REALLY want some good reliable ignition then keep a small blowtorch in a waterproof baggy. Just as cheap and you can actually refill them when it gets low.
>>
>>2229221
Picking up a bic and picking up a cheapo piece of trash lighter are comparable to picking up a beretta and picking up a taurus.
Sure theyre effectively the same thing but you can FEEL the difference. You know that one is IN FACT better than the other. One is tactile and one is clunky. One is solid one is flimsy. One will work 99% of the time and the other might leave you high and dry.
When it counts, count of something that wont let you down.
>>
>>2251133

It's Chinglish for lighter fluid. Same as "petrol lighter".

A Zippo can burn kerosene, but it gums up the wick really fast. You can also burn diesel, but it's harder to ignite and also gums up the lighter. Gasoline has the issue of flash ignition, like when you first refill with lighter fluid and it makes a fireball. It also burns hot enough to potentially damage your lighter if you keep it burning too long. Alcohol burns clean, but has the same issue with flare ups and doesn't burn very hot. But basically, a Zippo or similar lighter will burn just about any flammable liquid in an emergency
>>
>>2251672
What do you mean by a small blowtorch? I'm usually already bringing along 1lb propane bottles for my stove so I pack my blowtorch as well. The size and weight of it are basically negligible compared to the fuel. Don't know why you'd put it in a plastic bag, it works fine while wet.

Indeed. You can get a Bic 50-pack for less then $1.00 each and it will last you your entire life.

The only reason they catch cigars on fire is because you're sucking air. You don't really have that bellows action unless you pretty much make a cigarette like fire stick that you can suck air through.

I'd use matches at that point.
