As with any torch lighter a little maintenance will keep it alive longer. First off, the little orifices tend to clog over time. If it lights at all the flame separates from the orifice plate and becomes unstable. A little cotton wrapped around a toothpick and dipped in alcohol will soften the crud and a quick blast of compressed air clears it right up. Second, air accumulates in the fuel tank restricting how much gas it will hold and making it harder to light. Vent the lighter every 3 or 4 fills. Add just a little butane then use a small object to depress the filler valve until the hiss stops then fill normally. Third, if it refuses to light, watch the spark. 90% of the time the problem is crud build up at the base of the electrode or the insulation on the electrode has broken down allowing the spark to jump to the side rather than to the center of the orifices. Clean the lighter with some alcohol. If that doesn't work, using a gem clip or small wire as an applicator, apply a small drop of liquid electrical tape to the base of the electrode and let it dry. I have extended the life of my Z-plus for several months that way.
Make sure you buy the blazer model, don't get ripped off like i did
I bought one of these for a Zippo lighter. Fits snugly but easily in the Zippo, looks for all the world like the original insert. Holds quite a bit of butane and the adjustable flame is just right for lighting cigars. For the first few months it worked like a champ and I was pleased with my choice.
However, the quartz ignition system needs some work. Now, after about a year, mine has reached the point where I have to press it 7 or 8 times before it will generate a spark. Its reliability has dropped to practically zero. Not good, in my opinion.
This is a super good idea that is hobbled by an unreliable sparking system. Makes it useless for me.
Update (3/10/2012): Wouldn't you know it? A day after I post a tepid review here, complaining about the sparking system, the "Electro Quartz Ignition" system gives up the ghost. No amount of clicking or pressing or cursing will get it to spark. I know nothing lasts forever and in truth I have used it daily for about a year, so I guess I got my money's worth out of it. Now off to find a reliable replacement. At least I kept the original Zippo insert.
Update (3/14/2012): Good thing I was lazy and didn't actively hunt for a replacement as this one has risen from the grave. It's back to the 7-or-8-clicks-before-it-lights stage. No matter. This latest state only reinforces my opinion that's its reliability will not last more than a year. I'll keep it but I can't in good conscience recommend it.
