Smoking cigars requires a special lighter, but many friends often think that cigar lighters are not easy to use and cannot be filled, and they think that the lighter is broken. This is a wrong idea.
First of all, you have to release all the air pressure in the fuel tank (even a new lighter); use a small screwdriver or ballpoint pen to press down on the raised ring in the middle of the lighter filling port, repeat several times, until no more Just hear a hiss from the valve.
Next, adjust the flame of the lighter to the lowest gear, which can make it more compact and effective when filling. Place the lighter upside down, align the gas bottle outlet and cover the lighter inlet, and press it several times, each time about 5 seconds.
If the gas cannot be filled, it may be that there is excess air in the gas tank. At this time, you can deflate, and use a small screwdriver to align the air inlet and deflate quickly for 1-2 times, and then perform the gas filling operation. After filling, you will find that the tank and the lighter are very cold. At this time, you need to let the lighter stand still for 3 to 5 minutes to adjust the temperature of the newly filled gas to room temperature, and wait until the residual gas attached to the outer surface of the lighter is completely volatilized. Only then can the fire be ignited.
If the ignition operation is carried out immediately at this time, the residual gas on the outer surface of the lighter may be ignited, causing unnecessary danger. After refilling the gas, if the flame height is too high or too low during use, it is a normal phenomenon, and the flame height can be adjusted appropriately.
Tip: Putting the lighter in the freezer for 5-10 minutes will help you refill the gas more efficiently. This is because it lowers the air pressure in the lighter. Sub-zero gas enters the cold lighter, allowing it to fill more quickly and completely. If your lighter is transparent, you will notice that it fills faster. quick.
How to Refill a Lighter at High Altitude
If you live at a high altitude in a country like Denver, you are using fuel that is at least four times more refined or higher. Also, make sure to keep your lighter's gas tank as full as possible. As stated above, you want to let the fuel come to room temperature. To reach room temperature, you can hold your lighter in your hand for 1-2 minutes, or put it in your trousers or shirt pocket.
In the next step, you need to set the flame adjustment ring to (-), which allows more oxygen to enter the gas storage tank, which can increase the ignition power and flame strength of the lighter, and make up for the lack of oxygen in high altitude areas.
