Cigerette Lighter/Flashlight, retail $TBA
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 03-15-08

This is a combination LED flashlight/cigerette lighter in a weighty metal body. The flashlight features a 3mm (T1) white LED at the bottom of of a very texturised, semicircular reflector. This reflector is there mainly for cosmetic purposes; it does virtually nothing to modify or redirect the light, since the LED's own lens does the vast majority of that.

The cigerette lighter uses butane, and has a single "jet" (for lack of a better term) that produces a hot, blue flame when actuated. Some users may term this a crack lighter, but it lights cigerettes, cigars, and pipes - I've never tried crack, so I don't know how well this lighter would work on it.

For the purposes of this web page, I'll focus mainly on the flashlight , even though I show the flame from the lighter farther down this web page.


To use the flashlight, press and hold in the black button just behind the flashlight head. Release the button to turn the flashlight back off.

To use the lighter portion of this product, flip the flashlight head of the unit up so it's tipped approximately 85° to the side.

Firmly press the black plunger on the side of the unit down until it clicks, and hold it that way for as long as you need fire.

Release this plunger and flip the flashlight head back down when you are finished using the lighter.

The striker is a piezoelectric element that produces a high voltage spark, not a flint that needs to be replaced on a periodic basis, so that's one less thing for you to worry about.

I have not yet figured out how to change the batteries when necessary - nor do I even know what kind or how many batteries are necessary (probably three cells, but don't bet the farm on this), so this section of the web page will remain blank for the time being.

To refill this lighter with butane, hold the lighter upside-down, and insert the nozzle of the butane canister into the hole provided for it. Use one of the nozzle tip adapters provided with the butane if the nozzle does not fit. Gently pump the canister up and down several times, and pull off the butane canister. It is perfectly normal for a small amount of butane to spray back from the valve on the lighter when you pump the canister and when you remove the canister when the lighter is full.

I haven't refueled a butane "siggeret" "lyter" in many years, so I'm kinda flying by the seat of my pants here.

Because this product was meant to be used as a lighter and emergency flashlight to be used occasionally, not as a flashlight meant to be carried around all the time, thrashed, and abused; I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in the {vulgar term for feces}bowl or the cistern, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannonada (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a scanner-type device on a platform with a large readout, with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannonada is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that I might inflict upon a flashlight.
So this section of the lighter's web page will be substantially more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight who's sole purpose in life is to be a flashlight.

The flashlight produces a dim, wide beam; this makes it ideal for locating dropped objects in the dark within relatively close proximity to you, and for reading restaraunt & bar menus in dimly-lit establishments.

Measures 4,050mcd on a Meterman LM631 light meter.

This light has a wide beam, and if I've told you once, I've told you 1,000,000,000 times:
Wider viewing angles always, always, ALWAYS equal lower mcd values.

Test unit was obtained sometime between late-2004 and early-2006, and was just discovered on the afternoon of 03-13-08 while looking for another product.

If you sent this lighter/flashlight combo, please pipe up so I can properly thank you for it.
