How to maintain a lighter?

Whether you're an avid smoker, a candlelight enthusiast, or just use a lighter occasionally, properly maintaining your lighter is essential to ensure it always works properly when you need it. Whether you have a traditional fuel lighter or a modern plasma lighter , these maintenance tips will ensure your lighter stays in top condition.

How do you maintain a lighter?

1. Keep it clean

One of the first steps to properly maintain your lighter is to clean it regularly. If you are using a traditional lighter, regularly check that there is no dirt or ash stuck in the lighting mechanisms. For a plasma lighter, you can gently clean the electrodes with a soft cloth or cotton swab to remove any buildup.

2. Check the fuel

If you use a lighter that runs on fuel such as butane, make sure you check the fuel levels regularly. Refill the lighter as necessary, but make sure you only use high-quality lighter gas to extend the life of your lighter and prevent malfunctions.

3. Avoid leaks

Leaking fuel can not only be dangerous, but it can also affect the performance of your lighter. Make sure you check the lighter carefully for leaks and store it in a cool and dry place to avoid breakdowns. If you notice that your lighter is starting to leak, stop using it immediately. 

4. Protect from damage

Whether you have a traditional lighter or a plasma lighter, it is important to protect it from damage. Avoid dropping your lighter on hard surfaces and keep it in a sturdy case, bag or case when not in use. This way your lighter remains protected against scratches and breaks that could affect its functioning.

5. Maintain the ignition

The ignition is one of the most crucial parts of your lighter, so make sure it always functions properly. Clean the igniters regularly and replace them if necessary to ensure that your lighter is always ready to use.

By following these simple maintenance tips, you can ensure that your lighter always stays in top condition and that you never run out of fire when you need it. Take the time to properly care for your lighter and you will be rewarded with years of reliable use.

6. Refill as needed

Once you have completed all the steps, the last step is to check whether there is still enough fuel in the lighter. Or of course enough power for those who use a plasma lighter. You can compare a lighter with fuel to a car. Make sure that it is never completely empty before you refill it, but make sure that when you refill the lighter that you bleed it and fill it correctly. You can read how to do this on the refilling lighter page.

Followed these steps? On the right track! Your lighter is ready for a few weeks of use again.
