Excellent deal!
Nice feeling lighter and works like a charm. Only issue is when trying to light it but I guess I need to get used to it.

One lighter didn't work at all. You have to contort yourself just to operate the lighter. Second lighter works for now. I paid for these and regret it.

It started out as an adult proof lighter. Finally got it. Thank You.

Horrible Lighter
Horrible Lighter Only worked a couple of times. The size was good, design okay but I didn't like the child proof button. The flame was weak to medium at best the few time I could get it to light. Through it in the trash in less than two weeks. Mine wasn't free I made the mistake of paying for it, don't make the same mistake Do not waste your money or your time even if it is offered for free.

Solid reliable flame, tough double lock .

Would be OK if not for the childproofing.
Got it for free so I can't complain too much. The childproofing is about as bad as the Bic lighters at one time. Other than that, it does light fine and has a good strong flame.

No Strike No Fire
The lighters have an attractive style; however, form over function never appeals to me. The lock on the push starter was a great idea to keep children from playing with the lighter. The lock also makes it difficult for adults to light their cigars.

Poor quality control, bad design!
Got 2 free w/purchase. I followed instructions. One of them works (for now)... the other one will not work after repeated attempts following instructions. They were free so one if them will get used until it fails (hopes are not high)... the one that does not work only cost me an hour of my life that I won't get back! Easy to see why they are giving them away :(

What do you want for free?
Received a free 2-pack with my order. One lighter was DOA, and on the other the flame stays lit for a few seconds after releasing the actuator. Would have rated them one-star, but they were free and one of them does produce fire.

Horrible lighter! Quit working after limited use.

Not very good
Cheap lighter gets the job done. Lighter needs to be calibrated if you have it set to low it will light and just go out and if its two high the lighter will light and blow itself out and just spew out butane. If you only smoke at home you could by this lighter and hopefully the spare will work if not hopefully you have another. If you travel and wish to smoke I would not recommend this lighter!

Great lighter ignore the Bad Reviews
I agree with Aaron, why all of the bad reviews. I have 3 of these lighters. All work great, they are not effected by the wind. The flame is easy to adjust so if it is windy you can increase the flame size to counter-act the breeze. Esay to light with the safety latch. Easy to see fluid level, easy to fill after releasing the pressure. I will buy these agin if needed for presents or travel.

Great single flame lighter
This is a great lighter, i don't understand all the bad reviews. Large viewable tank, large flame, lights everytime. The child safety lock is almost completely unnoticeable to me, very easy to work around, not quite the annoyance i was led to believe. Was using black-ops alpha lighter prior to this one, and this lighter is far superior. Nice look and feel..

Moretti Carbon Fiber Jet Torch
Works great once you figure out how to operate flaw...not intuitive to get flame.

Lousy lighter!
I was very dissatisfied with this lighter. Not only is it hard to open, it is difficult to light. Furthermore, the flame is weak. This is a poor design and I regret this order.

not a good deal
I have ordered the 2 pack of these lighters and all i can say is one of them worked great and the other is a pain to get lit and stay lit I would not recommend these lighters, check out some other brand, you might be happier

Poor performance
Child lock is easy enough for me to use with one hand. The problem is the flame. It doesn't matter what I do; it goes out. I've tried adjusting it up and down. That didn't fix it. Its very frustrating clicking the thing 50 times to light one cigar. If I don't give them away, I'll throw them away.
Customer Testimonials
I got one of these lighters because I liked the look, but I hate it. It's hard to light.
I got these on Black Friday 2/$10. I didn't expect much, but these have really surprised me. Great lighters, especially for the price!
Good basic torch lighter. Has child lock, but not hard to work at all.
I always seem to misplace my lighters. This one was no different. It was great while it lasted. No fault of the lighter of course. Sorry little guy, I don't know where I left you.
Great lighter, got this in a 4 lighter bundle offer on this site, the other ones were okay, but this one is AWESOME. Best lighter in my arsenal, makes me think that 1-torch lighter are better than 2-3-4 torchers.
Horrible. Won't light, who cares about the horrible design or annoying child lock, it doesn't even work.
I have two of the Moretti lighters that I received from CI as a promotion for a cigar purchase. I would not recommend this lighter to anyone as it is very difficult to light after filling and no matter how I adjust the flame adjustment it still will not work. The flame only stays lit for a short time before going out if it lights at all. Thankfully I did not pay anything for the lighters. The childproof feature is a pain and contributes to a sore thumb trying to get the lighter to ignite.
....I wound up with 3 of these. I can see why they are practically giving them away.... One of them seemed to work okay for a month; now it's just screwy. I can barely get it to light. When I do, it sometimes fluctuates giving me more or less flame. I tried the next one; screwy right away. Didn't even get a month out of that one. I have not tried the third one because I just don't care anymore. The ridiculous safety mechanism isn't so bad once you get the hang of it.
Got two on a freebie. One worked the other not. The good one is working fine.
Nice freebie. Child lock is a little frustrating. Not Reccomended
I bought this for myself and I love it. After you refill you have to adjust the flame height which is annoying but it works every time even in the wind.
And an Update After 2 weeks of work, it is dying? No longer stays lit, goes out after a second or two. And if I try to relight it goes out faster and faster to it just showing the initial flameburst then goes out. I've adjusted both ways on the screw, no go. I warmed up the lighted in my hands, earns me a second light but still does the same thing. Good for starters, but do get yourself a reliable pricey lighter. Do Not Rely on these!
The flame adjustment is terrible. Once adjusted it works decent. Not great.
Disappointed. Lighter is very difficult to use. Rarely lights in the first five tries. Have relegated it to use only severe emergencies! And yes, i do check to maje sure toi check it for fuel every time I try to use it. I will say the lighter is consistent. It consistently fails to light.
Not bad for an inexpensive lighter. Looks pretty cool and does what it should.
Low quality, do not recommend
Looks pretty cool, feels like a solid build, no random loose sounding parts. GF bought a double pack for me, when I opened them, I guess I bled one figuring out how to operate it, not the second one. Filled both and the one that was bled worked flawlessly, the one that hadn't been bled cut off here and there. After another quick refill both are working flawlessly. I am new to torch lighters and these are pretty cool, real easy to operate with one hand once you find out how to light it. Liking the design, only con I found with it is the sticker that states "Made in China" lol
Inconsistent, but when it's working right, it's great
Nice looking but akward to hold when lighting a cigar.
It's no Xikar but it lights every time so I can't complain and it is cheap.
This little lighter is great! I had it filled at my local cigar shop and it lit on the very first try! I was told that the butane can make all the difference so stay away from that cheap drugstore stuff and you will love this lighter.
Holds a decent amount of fluid and after a little adjusting puts out a good jet flame and for the price you cant beat it.
good looking lighter, but does not work well. would like to know how to return it. a bic works better. is there any kind of warranty with this thing
Great lighter! The video definitely helped me work out the kinks and now it lights every time. I got it free with an order, but it would have been worth paying for.
Doesn't work. Tried adjusting the flame but it just spurts out at first then dies away.
Worked for one tank of butane and now will not stay lit for more than a half-second. I do like the locking lid, but lighting the thing is kind of awkward. Looks good though. Cannot recommend it because of it's lack of durability.
This lighter is extremely disappointing. Did not work consistently and after a few weeks of use now does not work at all. Definitely would recommend passing on this cheaply made lighter.
The child-safety on this lighter takes a little getting used to, but it is a very slick addition to my collection. It looks cool, has a crystal clear reservoir for you to peer into to determine when to refill, and lights reliably. If you have a hard time getting it to light for you, try adjusting the torch dial on the bottom.
This thing is just about as child safe as you can get. It takes two right thumbs to open it and light it up. Very lightweight design; you could crush it.
It's okay. Not crazy about it.
A decent little lighter that seems to have gotten a bad rap. Watch the video and you really won't have any issues. Got it as an add on with an order and got free shipping. Pretty good deal overall.
I got this lighter as part of a CI deal and it works great. After I figured out how to ignite it and adjusted the flame level a little bit, it works like a charm. At a party last night I reliably lit about 20 sticks with this lighter and didn't have any issues once I turned the flame level up to a little more than half way. My only complaint is that you need a screw driver or something small to adjust the flame level, I wish it had a dial of some sort like other torches I've used. But definitely a great purchase for the price!
Not bad. I use it quite often for other things other than cigars, so it doesn't last very long for me. Other than that, it's a great lighter for the price.
Sweet little torch.
Good lighter for the price. Had to bleed it again after I filled it up and it worked fine. I think I'll be buying a few more for gifts.
Picked one of these up on a whim to get the free shipping. I must say it has been a real reliable lighter. Lights every time the first time. It has a unique look that gets attention almost anytime I break it out. The child proof feature is easy to navigate with one hand once you use it enough. Just takes a little practice. For the price I am more than satisfied. Thanks CI.
The first one did not work, but customer service was great... Got a new one next day and it works fine
They certainly made it childproof, and also managed to make it nearly adultproof, too! You have to push in one release button embedded in the trigger button that has to pulled back and down.... you can eventually learn how to use it. Otherwise, it seems to be solidly made.
I got this with a box of Fighting Cocks. I was just in the pool for an hour with this in my pocket and it fired up right away! Love it!
Does the job just fine. The carbon fiber case is really just plastic, so it can get scratched if in your pocket with keys. The safety mechanism is a bit tedious, but you can easily open & light it with one hand. Handing it to someone who is unfamiliar, however, is mean. Funny, but mean.
Nice shaped torch. Does the job well.
Well, after a few fills and purges, it works great. Great lighter to keep in the pocket and leave the nicer ones at home.
...holding it in my not like operation
I found this lighter to be hard to use. Its design makes opening with one hand a bit of a task when otherwise occupied with a golf cart, etc.
I purchased several of these and (at first) It would seem it doesn't light every time and you have to click it a few times to get it lit. Or you light it and it goes out after a few seconds. That was all true, but after I turned the flame up using the screw on the bottom of lighter, it works like a charm!!
Sometimes takes a couple tries to ignite a flame but overall a good lighter!
Not a bad little lighter. Only problem I've had was that if I have the fuel adjustment set to anything other than full, it has a terrible time lighting and staying lit. However, set on full, it works great! Be careful of the lid, it doesn't flip back very far, and can get in the way of or damage some larger ring gauge cigars if you aren't paying attention. Purge every time you refill, and it should be good for a few cigars before it starts to fizzle out.
Great little lighter for the price. It was easy to figure out the safety switch. Adjusted the torch up about a half turn and this little guy really burns!
Extremely difficult to operate.....
This lighter is long as you "bleed" it before you add fuel. If you don't, no biggie, but it will initially need more time to light. I would recommend this lighter without hesitation. But DO NOT USE ON A PIPE. A jet flame will burn the wood.
Here's a tip to you guys having trouble lighting this lighter. Watch the 42 second video. Problem solved.
I'm loving it so far. Yes, it does require some attention to ignite but I adapted easily by the time I finished the first stick and now love it. I would recommend it to anyone especially considering how little fuel it seems to use.
This is the most difficult to use lighter I have ever encountered. It has double safety locks, one to open the cover and another to depress the lighter button. It is nearly impossible to use it with one hand. I would not recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a real concern over the lighter falling into the hands of a child.
Decent little lighter. Definitely heads and shoulders above what you find at gas stations. When I first got it, it took a couple dozen flicks to really get it going longer than a few seconds, but after that it's been fine. Probably not something you want as a primary lighter. But the price is right if you need a couple spares. I haven't had any problems.
Nice...but definately CHILD PROOF, takes both hands to ignite!
Nice lighter, but it took about 50 tries to "prime" it to light everytime. After that, it works just fine.
