Green LED Cigerette Lighter, retail $1.25
Manufactured by (Unknown)
Last updated 08-22-11

This is an LED cigerette lighter in a weighty metal body.

The cigerette lighter uses butane, and has a single "jet" (for lack of a better term) that produces a hot, blue (turning green shortly after ignition!) 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 that LED , even though I show the flame from the lighter farther down this web page.


To use the lighter of this product, flip the lid of the unit up so it's tipped approximately 85° to the side. The LED will come on at this point, illuminating a graphic on one side of the lighter's body with a fairly bright (though not obnoxiously so) green light.

Firmly press the silver plunger on the top of the unit (that you just exposed by lifting the lid) until it clicks, and hold it that way for as long as you need fire. The actual flame will turn green after two or three seconds.

Release this plunger and flip the lid 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 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 cannoņata (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 cannoņata 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.

Test unit was purchased on Ebay on 02-15-11 (or "15 Feb 2011" or even "Feb 15 Twenty Double Sticks" if you prefer), and was received at 4:08pm PST on 02-26-11 (or "26 Feb 2011" or even "Feb 26 Twenty Double Sticks").

UPDATE: 03-09-11
The following photograph shows what I believe is the cause (intentional, in this case!) of the green flame:

Note the blob of what I believe is metallic copper in the flame's path.

UPDATE: 08-22-11
The "grille" covering the window that the LED is behind has fallen off -- to wit:

It fell off several months ago, but I forgot to photograph it for documentation of this website...but you know what they say..."better late than never".
