Welcome to, I think, my first accessory review. Today is going to be the very inexpensive Jet 1300-C Butane Lighter.

I received two of these lighters from jjo along with a nice selection of cigars, in the hopes I could do a comparison review to something similar like the Blazer. I have not been able to lay my hands on one of those lighters so I figured I would just a simple review of this one and if I get the chance to mess with a Blazer I can then update with any new information.

I promise in the video I would provide a link to buy these so here it is

I hope you enjoy the video even though I hit the 4gb mark and it stopped plus I focused on the lighter at one point and then I was a bit fuzzy the rest of the way. That actually make more people watch as I am not in focus.

  1. Wow, that was a lot more in-depth than I was expecting. Mine is still working perfectly after about 10 weeks of pretty constant use. I’ve probably lit 80+ cigars with it, and have only refilled it twice – and I only fill it about 2/3 of the way up. Last refill was only a couple of days ago. As to fuel, I just use a no-name triple refined butane that ran me about $3 for a 6 oz. can. No problems in any of my lighters.

    As to the multitude of lighters on DealExtreme, about 99% of them are novelty crap, and if you don’t link directly to this lighter, you may figure on spending quite some time trying to find it, or anything else worthwhile. I found it to be worith the trouble, though, since I dug up another really good lighter. It’s sort of between this one and your creme brulee lighter in size and has also been working great at less than $8. I just ordered one that’s a more direct knock-off of the Blazer Little Buddy that’s a whopping $2.69. We’ll see how that one works out.

    My first order took almost two weeks to get to me on the west coast, but the second took just over a week, so how long it will take is anyone’s guess. Easy and secure payments through PayPal. Haven’t had any problems.

    The way I see it, is that I can spend $40, $60, or $100 dollars on a nicer looking lighter, or I can spend less than $25 on 10 of these, and if one of them craps out, I can just toss it and go on to the next one. I’d also have extras to hand out to other smokers, and if I don’t get them back, I won’t be too perturbed. I already spend more than I should on the cigars themselves.

    Glad that those are working out well for you, and thanks for the review!

    Cheers!

    1. BTW, the comparison was your idea. I just figured you might want to take a look at it. 🙂

      As for the base, I just set it on the table and push the lighter in until it’s seated – no problem.

      1. Jay,

        Sorry, but I’ve been using jet torches exclusively. I do, however, have a larger version of this Jet 1300-C that has soft flame switch. It’s maybe a little more than half way between this one and a table torch/creme brulee torch type lighter in size – I don’t have one of those to compare to – and has been working great as a torch. It’s primarily plastic except for the nozzle, but it’s solidly constructed, has been lighting on the first click everytime, and the adjustment slot is big enough that I can use my thumbnail to adjust the flame. However, I haven’t used the soft flame feature for lighting up. The only minor problem is that it won’t light in that position – you have to light it as a torch, then switch over. It’s only $7.87 (again, with free shipping), and may be worth a try, as you basically get two lighters in one. You can check it out here:

        Hope this helps you.

          1. To be honest with you, I haven’t seen a dual flame with a clear tank. I will say that this one holds a boat-load of fuel, and I can hear it if I shake it. If I do happen to run across one with a clear tank or window, I’ll let you know directly through your website.

  2. I absolutely love these.. I bought like 5 and I’m still using my first. Unreal bargain!! I’m gonna start including them in bombs 🙂

  3. I just tossed mine out after a a few months. It simply stopped lighting. There was plenty of butane and a spark every time, it just refused to light. Too bad because I really enjoyed it. I’ve had nothing but luck with other lighters from deal extreme and for $2.78, I need to try another one.

    1. Matt,

      Sorry, I should have answered this sooner. Sometimes the electrode, or ignition wire, can get out of whack. Carefully moving it in or out could help, as well as an occasional shot of compressed air to the jets. Yeah, at these prices, I would (and have) definitely put in an order for four or five.

  4. Got mine a couple of days ago, and it is pretty cool. I used to swear by wooden matches, BTW. I picked up 2… wondering if I shoulda grabbed more at that price!

  5. My friend showed me these about junior year in highschool so I bought one figuring if it was a piece of crap it was only like $2.73 shipped so big deal. To this day this thing still works like a dream and I use it just about everyday.

  6. I bought 3 of these, and they all suck big time. Press, lights up for a microsecond, shuts off. Press, lights up for a microsecond, shuts off. Press, lights up for a microsecond, shuts off. They might be good for giving to someone you don’t like maybe? If someone has an idea of what I can do to make them work let me know please.

    1. Uhhh, I needed to adjust the flame. Now they work just fine, pretty powerful actually. Thanks for your help Mike.

      1. LOL, I’m glad Mike got you straightened out. I knew they couldn’t all be duds. I hope they work as well and as long for you as they have for me. First one is still going strong after two years of constant use.
