Default Sikaro Typhoon triple torch



Picked this off Amazon after coming across a review video of it. It really is a tank, that's all I can say so far. Looking forward to giving it a try tomorrow in above-freezing temperatures.

Look forward to hearing a review tomorrow, and a follow up in a couple months. Always good to see how they work after a couple fillups.

I always found that to be the issue with my torches in the past. They grew weaker and weaker with every refill... I use Ronson butane fuel but maybe I'll have to shell out for something a little cleaner

See if you can find a product called "Whip-It".
It is refined in S.Korea by the largest butane processor in the world.
It is also refined 9x. I put Ronson or Xigar in a lighter and I have to turn up the flame after using whip it, and vice versa.
It really is a noticeable improvement in burn, and it is usually cheaper that any of the others.

Also, as a side note, a product that falls right in between these 2 in terms of burn is Weller, which supplies butane for gas soldering devices. However it is not cheap.

Thanks for the tip. Doesn't look too pricey on Amazon, I will order a case if Ronson begins to fail me

Righto. The debut performance of this lighter was a success, exceedingly so. I very quickly became aware of my unfamiliarity with the strength of a triple torch. The effectiveness of the built-in punch in the foot of the lighter turned it into an ideal all-in-one tool for cigar prep. After some quick fiddling I was able to get an even toast in about 3 seconds, which remained so throughout the entirety of the stick. The punch wasn't as sharp as I am used to, but a little more effort yielded the expected result.

So far, I like it very much.

Very good.

Again, I'm awaiting your review after a couple months of regular use.

Sparker died after about a week of use. No answer from the company and I'm not holding my breath. I picked up a Regal triple torch with a lifelong warranty instead. Take a pass on the Sikaro

That's too bad, thanks for the test though.

Too bad about the lighter, on amazon you can just tell them it's crap and you want to return it and at least you'll get your money back. A lot of the time Amazon doesn't even want the time back and they tell you to keep it.

That being said I'm a big fan of Ronson el'cheapo torch lighters that you can get for just under 4 bucks at Walmart.

Thanks for the tip, I may try to get a refund for it. I've searched far and wide for those Ronson Jetlites (highly recommended elsewhere as well) but I'm afraid they aren't available in Canadian stores.

I redact my previous statements. Me, being the silly fool that I am, forgot the necessity of purging torch lighters. Once I did that, all is fine again. Jumped the gun a bit, I've corrected my amazon rating and will report back when she eventually dies for good

Well it's not like you dumped Gibson two weeks into the fantasy season.
