I bought the Dupont MaxiJet lighter. Price went up after my order. I was glad that I purchase it. It work well, on every strike there was a flame. There is a nice fuel window. The problem is sometime the window can't close.. upon reading the net. Others also have the same problem. I figure out that those touch lighter got problem working up side down. This Dupont maxiJet if put inverted sometime window can't close. hmmm have to leave with it. Now I am admiring my Lotus made in Japan lighter. The Lotus Spartan feel very solid.
Always cover the valve at the lighter with an electric tape. When filling gas simply open the tape and pump in the gas. Later close the tape. The tape protect the dust while it is in your pocket. Usually tiny dust will stick at the valve, so when you pump the gas the dust will go in and later clog. According to one of the lighter manufacture 80% of the lighter that came for warranty claim have this problem. The valve sometime get stuck. I usually spay WD40 oil on the valve. That will solve the problem. I bought an IMCO butane lighter. When I pump gas the gas will immediately escape. After spraying WD40 oil on the valve, the problem is solved.
Warranty claim? IMCO have closed down long ago. So I fix up myself.
