I missed your question somehow, sorry. No, not any closer than the one photo that's posted.

RR, at least you got them :D what's your opinion of them?

I think they must have put them on the back of a MuskOxen and then used a raft to cross the Pacific and then hired a distant relative of a Pony Express Carrier to get them across the country to my post office :roll: :lol: :lol:
lol same here. Took forever to get them. I waited the recommended time and then sent an email only to find out they went on a holiday in China.

All 10 of mine work fine. They are as described by some buyers, "dirty". I stuck them all in an ultrasonic cleaner and brushed them out with cotton swabs. Some were looser than others (the fit of the lighter to the case) but none fell out if tipped upside down. The inside surface is all copper. The outside looks nickel plated. I was going to replace all the o-rings but they seemed ok (some buyers thought they were inferior).

Everyone who got one from me liked it :)

This one uses Scripto disposable lighters, found at gas stations and Walmart.



I think I saw one at REI with the nozzle extended.

I never liked Bic lighters or Scripto lighters because my fingers were too close.

* Flame temperature: 2300 F (1300 C)
* Duration: Burns approx. 20 minutes (per disposable lighter).
* Weight: 1.8 oz (50 g)
* Size: 4.3 x 2.4 x 0.9 in. (110 x 60 x 23 mm)
