At this time of the year I use refillable lighters often to light a fire or burning candles. Does anyone know how long the refillable lighters last? Of course, I think I am saving money purchasing these refillable lighters but it seems that once they empty and I refill them they just don't seem to work as well. I am 'clicking' away at that button to get a flame and it used to work on the first 'click'.
If your talking about butane lighters, the secret is pushing the refillable stem so that all the air is removed from the tank before refilling. I have thrown away nice lighters because I thought they were broken. After finding out this tip, I have been using the same lighter for years.
You might need to replace the flint. You can buy those at the same place that sells the butane to refill the lighters.
