    Hello,

    I am loving my new sticky brick jr. I have refilled my honest lighter a few times. I have been doing it next to a open window when purging. I can't go outside as I live on a main road in a flat and I have no garden.

    I feel a bit funny after refilling, I am just wondering if this is in my head or if I could be hurting myself?

    Everything I see online relates to huffing butane which sounds AWFUL.

    Can it be THAT bad to accidentally inhale a little butane when refilling? I'm obviously not huffing it but it still concerns me as I am vaping for health reasons. It doesn't smell overly strong but I can feel it a bit I think. I did have to purge it twice there as it didn't work the first time.

    I've never felt it but recently I switched to Colibri and I can smell it sometimes too and I can't stand the smell. I fill under an exhaust fan in the kitchen.

    I'm currently using this stuff - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Newport-30...TF8&qid=1515773711&sr=8-7&keywords=butane+gas

    It's not too smelly but its the odd sort of lightheadedness that puts me off. Part of me thinks its perhaps because I hold my breath when I'm filling it. I was filling it under the extractor fan but I'm thinking doing it out the window in a large room will allow more air to circulate as oppose to doing it in my fairly small kitchen.

    Now if someone can create a torch lighter that you can refil with gas that is non toxic.. that would be sweet!

    It does not seem that concerning to inhale small amounts only on occasion. The warnings you see seem to be more for higher exposure or for a much longer time. I do remember everyone being afraid of butane a while ago. Beeline and soldering irons were what the cool kids used to combust. I don't think there has been a lot of good data saying they saved themselves from any harm.

    I was thinking about this one.... put it on top of the can and be done with it until it runs out?

    Would have bought it already if it was in stock. I think I saw @ohmygodimsohigh using it in one of his awesome review vids. Maybe he'll chime in on it.

    Well I would be ten times more concerned about fucking myself up with dropping the soldering iron on myself than inhaling butane haha!! Those things scare me!


    That looks cool! If my mum came over and saw it she would have some serious questions XD I would have to say it was to do with cooking or something 'thats my meat browning tool mum, im not into crack' :lol::lol:


    I'm thinking now the fumes from the main road outside are probably more dangerous than the butane which is nice! :)
