What is a storm lighter?
A storm lighter can be recognized by a powerful blue flame. It is a lighter that, thanks to the filling of special butane, a flammable gas, creates an intensely hot flame of up to 1300 degrees Celsius. The gas is under high pressure and is therefore not easy to blow out. Hence the name storm lighter.
How long does a lighter last?
Differs per type and brand. Gas lighters and electric lighters are refillable and have a longer lifespan. Average lighters can be used approximately 1500-3000 times.
Where can I buy gas for a lighter?
First you have to know which gas you need. Most lighters use propane, methyl propane and butane. You will find the perfect one in our catalogue gasvulling for every lighter and especially for storm lighters!
