After spending 30 minutes filing the lighter with butane and attempted ignition and it worked but then the flame went away? This lighter is very precarious and 1/10th of a mm move left or right will make the lighter not ignite or produce a rediculous sized blue flame, and the large flame goes long and short in a rythmm and you can hear the popping of air pockets in the butane container. I was certain to follow directions about empting the butane and also burning butane out. I did this 3 times and I could never get the lighter to simply ignite and hold a flame more than 5 seconds. This lighter, forgive my lanugage, sucks!
I guess it will be a good cake candle lighter for those 4 birthdays we celebrate in my family each year.
Advice:Spend $15-$25 more money, do a ton of reasearch and read reviews because buying butane refillable lighters. Also visit YOUTUBE and see demos of lighters.
2 stars, 1 star was for the price and the other was for the fact that it does create a flame 12% of attempts.
Good luck and happy shopping.
p.s. Then there are those dispossible lighters I saw online, like 1000 for $25 I believe. :)
