I've had my Xikar Tech Single Torch for 5 months now and absolutely love it. The only reason I'll be getting a new lighter is if I want a double or triple torch version! I wanted a lighter to use my Dynavap on backpacking trips. I needed something with a large fuel chamber, was efficient, field adjustable flame, and was rock solid reliable. The Xikar Tech hits all those points. One of my biggest complaints about the triple torch sold by Dynavap was its inefficiency. It would stop working when there was still 10-15% of butane in the chamber. The Xikar fires down to the last drop. It uses virtually 99% of the butane in the chamber before it stops lighting. The fuel chamber is much larger than most other torch lighters I've come across. But the lighter itself is comparable in size to other lighters, it really isn't that much larger, just slightly fatter. It's also extremely reliable. I took it with me on a hike, and was enjoying vaping a bowl while soaking in a hot spring. Upon getting out of the hot spring, I dropped the lighter into the water. It was fully submerged for about 3 seconds. I dried it off and tried to light it, but it didn't work. I tried it again the next morning, and it worked like nothing had happened. That was 2 months ago and it's been going strong since. I do a lot of my hiking/backpacking in high altitudes (9000'+). In preparation for this season, I also bought a Xikar Cirro, which is sold as a high altitude lighter. Truth is, I haven't had to really use it yet as anything but a backup. I've used the Xikar Tech at 9500' so far without issue. I have to turn the flame up slightly to compensate, but it still lights reliably. In the next month or so, I'll be up around 10,000'. Curious to see if the Tech can still hold its own at that altitude. Add in the fact that the lighter carries a no receipt needed, lifetime warranty, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase so far. I would like to pick up the double flame version at some point, just haven't had the need yet. tl;dr: the Xikar Tech is a great lighter.
