Last time I was out, out of my three cheapo lighters only one worked. I like stuff that works. Before I begin I will admit you can purchase many handfuls of cheap lighters for what you pay for one of these. However, all these are windproof. The three battery operated lighters have continuous ignition.
Top one is an Olympian GM-3X. Crazy long but if you like using flammable liquids on your campfire it could save some hair Relatively easy to use. I wish adults could buy non child proof lighters but oh well.
Second one is an Infinitylite. Also crazy long but difficult to use. Gloves or frozen hands would not work well with this one. I'll use it at home for the bbq.
Third one is a Bernzomatic, non battery and only sorta windproof but its the easiest to use of the bunch.
Fourth we have a Zippo. Also very easy to use and windproof.
All these are refillable butane lighters.
Finally a cheapie throwaway lighter.
Without a long term test, my favorites are the Bernzomatic and the Zippo.
Butane. Purchasing butane was interesting. Amazon (and probably others) won't ship it. Rite Aid manager told me the paper work to sell it makes it not worth carrying. Sent me to the smoke shop next door. After wandering past the bongs and assorted paraphernalia (I'm not even sure if they had tobacco) I found the butane. You have to show ID, sign a sheet with your address and then can carry out as much as you like. He looked at me a little strange when I said just one. Honey Do brand. Not very subtle
