    This is the post that has made me finally make an account here.
    Do not, DO NOT buy a zippo blu, I've tried probably over 100 butane lighters (I collect lighters) and the zippo blu line is by far the least reliable lighter I and many other collectors have ever used, You will not be happy.

    Wow, thanks for sharing, like I said, I did not own it for long, I was mainly recommending them because of the warranty. No wonder Zippo have stopped making them, they will be repairing them for years to come.

    Im still loving my Vector lighter and Vector torch. Great quality. My issue is I can only source Ronson butane.

    The ring with the red triangle symbol should it be I guess. Is it a torch lighter or a regular one?

    It is a torch lighter - i believe the top ring is only for on/off of the gas flow, but not the adjustment...btw that on/off switch is ime really unpractical placed on some other flint wheel torches, really easy to empty them accidentially

    I super glued mine so they would not lock on any more, bloody dangerous, they would slide into the locked position by gravity while being used without realizing, near set myself on fire a couple times, these ones, good lighter once made safe:disgust:

    that's not possible with those flint wheel based models - the valve needs to be opened and closed with a switch/lever, there's no push button that opens/closes the valve ;) (that makes them indeed a bit more dangerous when dropped etc)
    as an example for bad design that can open in the pocket (and has suboptimal adjustment at the bottom):

    this one is my fav - the valve opens/closes with the top lid and nice adjustment at the bottom:

    I just checked those out, they look neat. 1 problem, the listing says;
    Kein Versand nach Australien
    I am pretty sure that translates to: Fuck off you Ozzie Yobbo.:tup:

    I think it's probably just the Gold Coast they don't ship to. Two things; why don't you buy a shit load of Dental IH's next time you play Port in Shanghai? And isn't Housos the best show evah?
    EDIT : And Rake

    @LesPlenty if you want one or two I can proxy you the stuff from Germany: be prepared to pay around 7€ / 10 USD in shipping to you.
    If that’s vivid PM me to work out details

    I just checked Dynavap and it still says out of stock, however, I just received a M starter pack in the mail today and it has the Black Vertigo 2 flame zippo, (I actually got 2 because I ordered the 2 lighter pack at the same time just to get the black zippo vertigo)

    Hey there !
    Today I received my 2 extra aomai lighters, one of which didn't function properly. For some reason it couldn't retain proper gas flow and it would stop while the switch was on. After gutting both the functional and the problematic one (so I could compare) I finally managed to get it to work. I would be more than glad to create a step by step guide in case someone gets an aomai lighter with a similar issue.
