Recommend a lighter from MF

I have $7,50 worth of unused mana points. I need want a butane lighter. Which one to get from Manafonts selection?

I don't smoke so I'm totally lost in the lighter world. I need something I can fire up the fireworks at new year with. It's usually -10 - -20C and heavy wind here that time of year and my fake Zippo does not do the job properly. So I will use the lighter seldom, but in harsh conditions. And my life does not depend on it, just my yearly amusement of blowing stuff up. Give me some hints.

I just did a Manafont search for "lighter", and then "butane".  I couldn't find any lighters that I own.  If you wanted a nice lighter from KaiDomain or DealExtreme, I could recommend several as I have at least a dozen different lighters from them.  Based just on looks, I would suggest one of these two:

http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/jet-1300c-butane-lighter-p-1633

This lighter may also do the trick, but looks kinda girly.  It has good feedback on DX (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/butane-jet-lighter-with-simulated-diamonds-3478):

Basically, you want a lighter with a blue flame because they are more windproof than standard lighters.  (DX has the largest selection and the most feedback for cheap chinese lighters.)

I think I'm gonna go for the girly one. I don't need a lighter that goes up to 1300C and I like my lighters to look more like a lighter than something from a steampunk movie. And the praise on DX sealed the deal.

Thanks for the input

I got this one also, as it was cheap enough to fit in to my mana points  and I did not find any more useful junk for that amount.

It's gun shaped! And it's got UV light! And a jet flame! What's not to like? *facepalm here*

No problemo.  By the way, one nice feature of these lighters is that the flame size is adjustable.  All you need is a flat head screwdriver.  Way more convenient than matches!

If that gun lighter is anything like these two sold out gun lighters (that I own and admire), you will probably like it.

EDIT:  Also, I should mention that many lighters with blue flames are advertised to be 1300C.  I don't think any of them are even close to that temperature; think of them like exaggerated Chinese lumens.   Wink

Yesterday I finally got my lighters. They are so much fun. Both are decent quality, they light up and flame adjusts as supposed to. They don't always light up on first click, but second usually sets them into fire. The gas container is not very big on either. I had to refill both couple of times when just playing with them. Ok, the flame was not set at lowest... But all in all, very fun way to spend 7,50 dollars, even when I don't need these more than one time per year.
