Im an adventure motorcyclist and there\'s not many lighters which are windproof and hold a decent amount of gas so I say Turboflame is ideal. The locking feature is definitely a bonus for soldering broken sensor wires, heating seized nuts and bolts and warming keys in extreme weather conditions. Oh! if you fall off your bike, you can save the broken part, like the brake pedal, by applying a little heat and bending it back instead of snapping it off.

Briliant product, can\'t fault it at all! I am a venture scout and its amazing on camps and I\'m the envy of everyone having one because ITS SO USEFUL! Especially as unlike any other lighters, it works no matter what the weather (stood up to treturous Dartmoor!) and isnt a little bit flimsy. I would recommend it any day 100%. Sadly, it was so great, it got knicked on camp this year :( but well, great product - a def worthwhile buy!

My Turbostick was an essential part of my outdoor kit; sadly it got lost on an expedition earlier this year. It lit hexamine in only a second or so, far more reliably than army issue matches. It frequently got borrowed on exercise and I often had a struggle to get it back. It was very useful at firework displays for lighting portfires; when you have an audience of a thousand or two you don\'t want to struggle with matches!At home it lit wood fires, barbecues not to mention candles and larger blowtorches. It was also very handy for small scale sodering. As soon as I can find a stockist I\'ll buy another!
