Default Ronson Jetlite still around?

I have searched every Walmart, Walgreens and CVS in my area and not a single Ronson Jetlite can be found. Are these still being made? I see them on Amazon but they are $10 or more. I am getting ready to travel and I need a good cheap lighter that I wont mind losing!

Your friendly Wal-Mart representative here I just checked with our warehouse and the Ronson Jetlite is listed as a deleted item no longer carried in our market (Wisconsin) sorry brother I'd assume this goes for other markets as well.

Ruh ro! I just lately bought a Jetlites to try out, as my luck with other (inexpensive) torch lighters lately has been bad. Two stopped working, and I lost another one in the last ten days or so. So far the Ronsons are doing fine. Guess my next trip to WM will be a hunt for more. Thanks for the heads up.

Default Re: Ronson Jetlite still around?

Might I suggest the Cigar Traveller lighter? I have one and love it, turn a soft flame (Scripto) lighter into a touch, works great and comes apart so you can spread it out in your carry on. There are other versions out there and mb on amazon now but i had this bookmarked from when I picked mine up.

Last time I checked my local Walmart (about a month ago), they still had them on the shelves for around $ 4.00 apiece.

Great idea. Can you reference one from Amazon? What would I search for?

Default Re: Ronson Jetlite still around?

I switched from Ronson to torches from DealExtreme years ago (thx, T.G.)

This is my current favorite:
http://www.dx.com/p/jet-1300-c-butan...lear-tank-1455

One tank lasts for weeks - and I enjoy 3-6 cigars a day. There's lots of other good ones, too. Shipping takes about 2-3 weeks, but is free. You can try 10 different models for less than $40.

They seem to be all gone now. Looked around hard the last couple times, at different WM locations. Asked a manager, she indeed confirmed the Jetlite is no longer an inventoried item. I didn't bother to ask about getting them through WM online. Not that big a deal to me. Darn shame though.

You may be able to get them online from WM. You can set up an "in stock alert" at this page

Default Re: Ronson Jetlite still around?

I bought several Jetlites at my local Walgreens before I left NJ in mid-June, so less than 2 months ago. Had I known there were problems elsewhere I'd have grabbed a bunch more for youse guys. Sorry.

The good news is that this means they are still out there somewhere.

I didn't buy any, but I saw a few at my local Walgreens about a week or so ago.
