I juggle and dance with fire instruments (poi, staffs etc) and in the past have had an absolute nightmare trying to light the wicks even with other wind-proof lighters(Zippo style wick/petrol). Got a turbo-flame and that trouble\'s disappeared.

I have just come back from the Peak District where I was helping with a D of E award gold training expedition. We left the trainees camping overnight and arrived back at at 0900 to check them before sending them off up Kinder Scout. Conditions; driving rain and snowfall overnight. A scene of horror; despondent students unable to light trangias because they had let the strikers of their storm matches get wet...so no hot food or drinks and morale (and physical condition!) going down the tubes fast. The expedition leader\'s little plastic lighter was useless, but of course the Turbo II immediately got things going and the group were soon tucking into a late breakfast. Later we stopped at the Outside shop and she picked up a G7R.

I do a lot of high camping in the hills and mountains of Wales and the Northwest Highlands and despite being dropped, kicked, trodden on and otherwise abused, my phoenix lighter, likes it\'s namesake, always rises to the challenge again.I\'ve had it for since summer \'09 and apart from refilling it with gas, have never had to maintain it in any way.It is a totally and utterly dependable piece of kit and works whatever the weather. I\'ve even lit a New Years Eve fire just below the summit of Druim Fada at -16 degrees. One of the best pieces of outdoor kit I have ever had the pleasure of owning.
