It’s not even up for debate....S.T. Dupont makes some of the best lighters in the world. Period. Each one is a veritable masterpiece of design and function, setting the bar for luxury lighting instruments. A bar that many try to reach, but simply fall short of. But just as fair warning, once you use an S.T. Dupont it's hard to go back to anything else.
S.T. Dupont Defi Extreme is just that - extreme. Because this baby was made to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. Shockproof and lightweight, Defi Exteme's robust single-flame torch operates even in the harshest conditions. High altitude? No problem, up to 11,000 feet! Punishing temperatures? A breeze, effective from -10C to +40C. Boasting a one touch ignition, and classic ergonomic shape, it's comfortable and a cinch to use. It also features a large side fuel level viewing window, and a large flame adjustment wheel. Go anywhere, anytime with Defi Extreme.
“This has got to be the finest lighter I've ever owned! Comparing to Corona, Xikar, Dunhill, Porsche and Tonino.
Looks great, lights first time even in heavy wind and low temps, huge fuel tank with visual level, wide flame height adjustment, no flints.
Requires red canister Defi Extreme butane which is damn hard to find and quite expensive. But I've also refilled with the cheaper Dupont black canister fuel with no problems. Pay your money and take your chances I guess.
