Funny…colibri as a lighter stops working without a warning either.
LOL @ Carlos…how true.
That sucks for the employees, but like Carlos says… it’s surprising the company lasted this long. My 4 dollar Ronson has lasted way longer than both my Colibris put together.
I think Colibri lighters are great. When my papers start to blow away it holds them in place.
I have publically shown my hatred for colibri lighters, but that sucks for all the jobs lost. To add salt to the wound, the managment takes the easy way out and announces it via email. No class, no balls. Shame on you Colibri!
