Some will argue that fire is fire, whether it comes from a high-end lighter
or a book of matches. But there’s no arguing butane fueled lighters burn at higher temperatures, resulting in a clean and efficient flame. Popular models range from single-flame to quad-flame, and sometimes even more. Any butane lighter will provide more than an adequate flame to light your cigar, it really comes down to how much sizzle you’re on the market for. Outside of fuel storage capability, a smaller pocket sized lighter can get the job done just as well as a larger table-top model. When filling any cigar lighter be sure to use at least triple-refined butane or better, as lower quality butane can clog valves and cause a myriad of problems for your unit. And at the end of the day, you can always resort to old faithful: wood matches.
