Cigar lighting is an art; what you light your cigars with is important so you must pay attention to the different cigar butane lighter designs and styles. Cigar lighters fall mainly into two categories - jet flame or torch lighters and soft flame lighters. These lighters are modern and sophisticated ways of lighting cigars, compared to match sticks or cedar spills. Torch or jet flame lighters are the commonest and loved by many aficionados. They burn around 2300F and are mostly wind-resistant; therefore, they can be used outdoors conveniently. These super-hot flamed lighters light up cigars in seconds. They can either be single jet, double jet, or triple jet, which have one, two, and three flame nozzles, respectively. Lighters with quadruplet jets having four nozzles are also available for bigger-sized cigars to achieve a wider distribution of flame at once.
Many torch butane lighter styles also have other unique features such as oversized refillable fuel tanks to avoid frequent refills, a fuel indicator or window for monitoring your gas level, and a retractable lid to prevent clogging. Some of these lighters also come with in-built cigar cutters and protective caps. An example of such a sturdy torch lighter is Xikar Tech Torch Lighter. Soft lighters, on the other hand, burn roughly 1400°F. They burn less hot than torch lighters. It takes a little while to light cigars with them. Soft lighters flame burn just in one direction and are not windproof. These lighter designs do not evaporate butane fuel like torch lighters; hence they are more economical. An example is the Xikar Pipeline Soft Flame Lighter.
