It's not the lighter, it's you.
Yeah, if you cannot operate this lighter, you shouldn't be driving a car either. If there is a problem with the lighter, it is you, not the lighter. Be advised, before re-fueling the unit, it is necessary to completely,(note: COMPLETELY), empty the fuel tank. It takes a few tries to empty the tank, but keep at it. Then make an effort to fill the tank completely, which also takes a few tries. This unit is not a light switch, but requires a bit of correct operation.

Bad bad and worse
Horrible lighter. I own 3. 1 does not work 1 works sometimes 1 stays lit even when I take my finger off the trigger and close the top. I learned the hard way after putting it in my pocket after using.

Not so good
I understand that I did not pay for a real expensive lighter, but I have but some lower end ones that have worked fine, this did not.

Not Great
Most difficult lighter to light. Rather use a Bic.

THE ALL THUMBS LIGHTER
If you want to light this lighter you need to be all thumbs. With one finger you have to push up on the safety feature while pulling down on the lighter. Good trick with the same finger. If I could give it a negative number it deserves it.

Buy something else
Very difficult to use . Spend a little more and buy a decent lighter. You will Dred each time you have to use it.

Cheap. Luck of draw.
One worked. Other leaked. I gave 3 stars because they're cheap. I didn't expect a $50-$100 lighter. I don't like the lock mechanism you have to manipulate to light. PITA. But hey it lights my cigar.

Just Don't
Where to start...#1) Feels cheap and that's coming from a cheap guy. #2) It doesn't light half the time, while my XICAR, Vector and Bugatti aren't flawless... #3)This thing has a stupid safety just below the button that is a pain, especially when it doesn't want to light. #4) this is the big one.. This thing CAN'T take the HEAT. Literally! I left it in the car one day.. the thing blew up at the refill valve. I went to use it one day and it didn't light.. thought to myself "huh, i thought it had butane but whatever" went to refill it when i got home, Filled in 2 seconds and blew right back out as soon as i removed the butane bottle. INSTANT FROSTBITE! If its free, keep it inside. If you are buying.. Cigars Int has a lot better options for the same amount or just a few bucks more.

Needs instructions
Works fine once you figure out how to even open it. Good flame, but feels cheap.

cheap torch lighter
Hard to use, I got what I payed for, a cheap and poor designed lighter.

The worst lighter I have ever gotten from CI
The worst lighter I have ever gotten from CI, perhaps the first "adult" proof lighter as the operating mechanism is horribly clumsy

Very difficult to operate.

A cheap Lighter that performs like it.
This is a very uncomfortable lighter to use. You have to hold your thumb and finger just right on the lighting mechanism to get it to fire up. It is also unreliable. I purged it completely and it still takes several tries to get it to fire up. You get what you pay for.

Driving test lighter: If you can't use this you should throw away your keys.
If you have a working opposable thumb (and know how to use it) this lighter is easy to use and a great value.

Hard to operate
Worst operating design for a lighter ever. Difficult to operate. No wonder they give them away with certain other purchases.

Didnt last
Got 2 free and both were equally worthless and hit the trashcan after multiple attempts. Bad design, hard to open. Wouldnt refill. Wouldnt light. Would give it a 0 or 1/2.

Clumsy to operate and unreliable. Poorly designed. I only keep it as a back up to my back up lighters and if the matches get wet.

Bad lighters all around...
I would give this item a zero if I could. I have gotten several of these so called free lighters now. Specifically this lighter. My husband just gives them to someone else. Out of the ten or eleven he has gotten, one of them worked for about two weeks, then just quit working altogether. If its free, and it works for you a couple times then good for you. What ever you do, do not spend your hard earned money on one of these that is for sure.

How could this be 4 Stars?
I have 2-3 of these. Got them from the "Free" gift and or with a special that CI had a while back where you get 4 lighters for a cheap price. Well 2 of the 3 I received didn't work as with most of the other reviews. The other on worked a couple of times but I swear it takes 3 hands to operate it. Poor quality, ugly & doesn't work Glad I paid little or nothing.

Passing the test of time
This is actually a really good lighter. While I have more expensive torch lighters come and go quickly, this guy has held up now for 2 years. It took A LONG TIME though to get used to using it. It has a child proof design. It's tricky to use at first and makes it hard for me to pass around and let others use it... but whatever... its a good price and holds up well. One simple torch flame so I always get a precise light on my cigar.

Pick Something Else.
Got two of these as a bonus in a cigar sampler, they are terrible. They light 50% and they are child proof to the point of frustration.

Don't waste your money!!
Looks great but one of the worst lighters I've owned. It only worked fine for about three days. Then after that third day it would strike, but would not light up. I could hear and smell the propane, but to no avail no flame.

Poor design
The location of the fuel chamber makes it vulnerable to damage; In my case, wiping it clean with enough pressure caused it to crack...

Sometimes free costs too much!!!
I received two of these lighters as part of an order. The lighters are unreliable. This is one of those rare occasions where free costs too much :-)

1 jet saves gas
Got this for free. 1 jet saves gas and makes it long lasting, no misfires. One remark: it doesn't like to be half-charged, low gas pressure gives a small jet. It works great for cigarillos. Safety features are great - no way to trigger it unintentionally.

No wonder they are giving these away.
I had received two of these lighters since I had spent a good amount on a few of my orders though when I had it filled it up with premium butane and attempted to light my cigar. The flame would start out strong and a couple of seconds would just cut off and sees received two of these lighters since I had spent a good amount on a few of my orders though when I had it filled it up with premium butane and attempted to light my cigar. The flame would start out strong and a couple of seconds would just cut off and stop working. I was hoping that this lighter that was aesthetically pleasing it would be working as well as it looks. So now I can understand if they are not giving away quality lighter such as jet line for free on orders over $100.

Moretti Carbon Fiber Jet Torch Lighter - Review
The lighter is light enough. It won't always light. even after recharge with newer fluid. The Lid does not spring open when released and is too close to the flame for use with 520 or larger ring gage Cigars.

Good for awhile
After several uses it starts fluttering flames & not lighting properly. Yes I use top grade fuel & all the purging & recommended filling techniques etc. This is the 4th lighter like this & all have performed poorly after initially being great.

Moretti Lighter.....Design Flaw
Great lighter with one exception. You have to "disengage the safety" which is a major pain. To hard to light.

Not impressed. Its easier to grab a bic lighter to light a cigar than figure this lighter out. Then once you finally get it open, when you strike it to light, half the time it dont work.

If you have kids at home...
When you take this lighter in a hand it feels good. It looks nice, too. When you want to light it, it's another story. If you small kids, they would never guess how to do it. Not every adult knows either. You have to know the trick.

Free Lighter
Not a fan of a single flame lighter for cigars due to the winds in New Mexico. I ordered the item since it was for free. After I played with it a bit to figure out how to use it, had to do some juggling, I gave it to a friend who is a pipe smoker after I showed him how to use it.

I wish it came with instructions. It's a little awkward to light. I like the visible tank and the torch flame, I haven't used it much so I'll wait to judge reliability.

Okay
Got it free, it's good in a pinch. Sitting next to my humi with a spare cutter.. 3 stars for the lighter. 1 for being free. 1 for coming from the best cigar company on earth. 5 stars is a stretch but Like I said, the price was right

Worth the discount price or added as a freebie.
Watch the video, it really helps lol. It takes a little getting used to but so far has lit every time. I kinda like the safety aspect. There is no way my 5 yr old would be able to light it. Plasticy feel, cheap, safe lighter that works well.

Average Performer
Child safety feature makes lighter difficult to operate. Also, many clicks before ignition is not unusual. I find it works best if kept near full.

Lighter OK, Customer Service Excellent!
My Moretti Torch Lighter had a problem actually lighting; it was the second instance I have observed this problem with this lighter. CI Customer Service made the process easy, replacing the defective lighter with another that DID work properly. That was all one could ask. They did the right thing and I appreciate it!

Free Lighter
As I have already responded to my evaluation of the Moratti Lighter, I am just going to send you the reply I sent to the reply I got from your customer service rep. Thank you for replying to my e-mail immediately. I did all the things you suggested prior to your comments and I use Ronson fuel. However my comments were to let you know that I think the lighter is poorly engineered. Again hard to open, hard to push the plunger, hard to fill and something I did not mention before the fill port is on an angle so that it is hard to adjust the flame and fill. Again I did not expect an expensive lighter as a giveaway but wanted to let you know the drawbacks of this particular lighter.

Torch lighter gift from CI
Great free gift, thank you CI. I really like the see through reservoir and having a torch lighter is the way to go for lighting your favorite cigar. I would have given this a five star rating if it was a bit easier to open with one hand.

Very nice lighter
I got this lighter for free with a promo code but would recomend buying the quality is high and the flame is great. Would even work well for pipe lighting
3 out of 5
Good, with a couple of drawbacks
This works pretty well, though a couple of design changes work improve this greatly. The "lock" on it is hard to use one-handed and the fluid reservoir could definitely be larger. But, as I got this as a free gift from CI, I really can't fault it too much.

Thumbs Down
This is easily the most inconvenient lighter I have ever used. The dual-function safety latch is absolutely intolerable. Yes, it lights, but it's such a hassle that it's not worth the trouble. I will actually use a Bic over this piece of junk. Might be useful to you if you have young children and can't be bothered to keep your lighter out of reach.

I have read many bad reviews about this lighter and was anxious to receive the free one with my order. When I received it, I filled it and have been using it for almost a month now and have had no problems at all. Great lighter and very reliable.

Good lighter just needs work
I received this lighter and it wouldn't stay light, needed to adjust the flame to a lower setting. Works great now, but I went out and bought another one before I figured this one out. Really not a bad single flame torch lighter for the money. Just needs a small how to manual with it

This just might be the worse lighter ever. Got it for free so I can't complain too much. I didn't like the child proof button you have to contort yourself just to operate the lighter.

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.

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.

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 :(

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..

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 hand....do 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 great...as 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.
Adroit
