Golden Dragon Butane Lighter Review

draglight4

So I’m back with another review, it’s been a while since I’ve actually reviewed anything here, sure I’ve posted links to my reviews on other sites, but now I have another review and I wasn’t sure of what title to use for it.  The actual product name is a mouthful surely: Windproof Dragon Pattern Refillable Butane Cigarette Lighter Golden, so shortening that was something that needed done I think, so I’m just calling it the golden dragon butane lighter. I got it from a company called Tmart for only $3.99 with free shipping so I wasn’t expecting much, but it’s actually much better quality than you would think for such a low price.

Yes I’m a smoker, it’s the only real habit I’ve got, well except caffeine I guess, but I don’t drink or do drugs or any of that, and yes I’ve tried to quit. I tried the patch, a couple different brands, and they gave me an uncomfortable rash wherever I put them, so that didn’t quite work out for me.

So anyway, I’m accustomed to Zippos, I like my Zippo lighter, they last long and they work well, but I also like to try different ones, especially those jet flame or torch types, and that’s the type of flame in the dragon lighter. The flame on this lighter though starts out blue but then changes to green which I think is rather kinda cool, oh and the lighter actually has LEDs in that light up too! Anyway, read on to check out this lighter if you’re interested..

The Review:

 

The lighter came packaged with other stuff, so it was padded, but the only packaging for the actual lighter is just a plastic bag with an identification tag on it.

For a lighter this one is heavier than most, but it’s also rather large coming in at a little over three inches tall and weighing in at over two ounces. The lighter has a Chinese design on it that wraps around it, there’s a dragon there of course but there’s also what appears to me to be a phoenix and they look to be fighting.  Here’s three pictures of the lighter showing the design:

On the bottom of the lighter you’ll find the butane fill port which is also the flame adjustment. The hole to fill the lighter is in the center and then around the edge is the fill adjustment with a notch in it so you can use your fingernail or small screwdriver to turn it and adjust the flame higher or lower.

The top is the cover for the flame opening, you push down with your thumb and it slide away.

The cover is spring loaded so when you let go it springs back over the opening. When you open the cover there is an audible click to let you know it’s on. The click is for both the LEDs and the igniter.

As I said the cover is also the switch for the LEDs that are inside of the lighter

It looks as though there are three sets of LEDs in side of the lighter, top middle and bottom, green, red and purple and they’ll blink for a few seconds when you use the lighter and then turn off by themselves.

This lighter isn’t your typical flame, it’s more of a torch, kind of like a mini blowtorch really.

What’s really unique is that the flame starts out blue and then turns green after about two seconds

As far as lighting cigarettes it works fine, it’s a flame and it lights them.

The lighter works well most of the time. Sometimes it works on the first click and sometimes it doesn’t. Not a big deal, just click it again.

The flame is hot and you can use it for more than just lighting cigarettes, it works like a little torch so you could use it for deicing your locks on your car in the winter. I recently used it for a quick solder job to fix my sons broken antenna on the remote control for his R/C car.

There is one small issue, and it’s the actual butane fuel tank, it’s small, maybe about half an inch of the entire lighter. I guess it’s not a big deal if you don’t use it for things other than lighting cigarettes so you don’t burn through a lot of fuel.

For the price it’s not a bad lighter, it looks great and it works fine.

It’s only $3.99 and it ships free, for that little why not give it a try.

The lighter seems well made overall, it’s heavy and sturdy but it’s a bit big to put in your pants pocket as it will create a bulge….

 

 

Pros:

+Seems well made

+Very inexpensive

+Flame changes color

+Multiple uses really

 

Cons:

-Large in size

-Small butane tank
