Ronson JetLite Torch Lighter

First off, this short review is dedicated to CS member bobarian for providing the lighter. I couldn't find any at local Wal-Marts. He was kind enough to send me one.

I was really surprised by this lighter. It's a very simple and basic lighter that gets the job done time after time. It lights up on first click. The top opens/closes very solid and crisp. It has all the standard features: adjustable flame, re-fill/purge port, etc.

It beats the hell out of my Nibo and other cheap lighters costing 2-4x as much.





As you can see, this lighter is built like a TANK.




Verdict:

So far, I'm very happy with this lighter. For $3-5, this is possibly the best lighter/deal out there. I plan on picking up a few more if I can find them. If any of you guys don't have one, go out and get one. Hell, for the price get a couple. :tu

Re: Ronson JetLite Torch Lighter

I found them at a nearby Walmart. For not too much more than the price of a Bic, they are a great deal. Time will tell how well they hold up, but my first impression is good.

Re: Ronson JetLite Torch Lighter

Thanks for the heads up all, didn't know that Walmart carried these...checked them out today and there were plenty there. Picked a couple up since my Colibri lighter is finicky at best

Re: Ronson JetLite Torch Lighter

I ran across the display in my local wally world awhile ago and for $3 decided it was worth a shot. Been using it for awhile now and I've had no problems. It's good that it's cheap and effective, but also available 24-7 even in a small town like mine.

Re: Ronson JetLite Torch Lighter

It is the best $2.94 I ever spend on a lighter, I loose them all the time and give them away and they are simply great:tu

Looks like its time for me to get a few more.. I lost one, and my other one finally decided to stop staying lit... Oh well, I've only had them for 2 years! Most reliable lighters I've ever had, and the price makes them THAT much better!

I've had a few for 2 or so years now and they have worked excellent so far... I use Vector fuel as a precaution.
