    I'm hoping to receive a nice lighter for Xmas for the old Vapcap, winter is coming up and was wondering if anyone also in chillies climes has experience with the ones offered on the dynavap website/winter user suggestions.

    Hi there. Long time reader, first time poster.

    I'm about the pull the trigger on an Omnivap XL Titanium and wanted a lighter that can fit in the Dynastash. My apologies if this has been addressed before but I would like to have one box to hold the Omnivap, the smoking material as well as the lighter. Maybe there are other, third party options for a case that can accommodate a torch lighter?

    Anyway, thanks in advance.

    Look at the page of @Winegums , he has developed and produced an - nice - own case which can host a lighter.

    My maxim triple started playing up. Would not work under half full. Would not work when cold. Luckily my friend had a single. Ended up leaving the maxim on the pub table last night in frustration. So down to my backup double.

    Lots of new triples on ebay. Ordered this:

    Anyone tried?

    Little expensive but if its reliable i dont mind. Anoying going on a night out and your lighter stops working!

    You can purchase camp stove fuel canisters (like MSR, Snow Peak, Primus fuel canisters) which use isobutane. Isobutane has a lower boiling temperature than standard butane, 34*F for butane and 10*F for isobutane. They make screw cap attachments that allow you to use the stove fuel canisters to refill butane lighters (in the US most fuel canisters use the lindal valve).

    And of course keep the lighter in your pocket to keep it warm!

    Xikar Forte incoming. Abut pricey but the reviews and consensus seem awesome. I’m looking forward to the precession of a single flame torch on my Omni

    I bought a pair of these the other day for a couple dollars more than they are selling for today. They are my favorite out and about torch and they are really cheap right mow at Amazon and took all of 3 days to get to me.

    I found a 3 pack for $16 on Amazon and snagged that. Thanks for the heads up @cybrguy. They'll come in handy when I get my Cocobolo Omnivap this weekend.

    I use the triple inline lighter that dynavap sells. Though, I had to tweak it slightly to actually get it to work. I prefer the triple inline style because they happen to line up perfectly with the size of the Cap, and it's fast but not too fast. Sometimes I turn the lighter so the flames go sideways and concentrate in one area. I do that right at the base sometimes for part of my heating cycle when I want it darker. I do it sometimes like that until it clicks but it doesn't taste great and doesn't seem as efficient.
    I would love to have a more reliable torch.
