Call that a lighter...
Down under they call them burnies, and the Optimum Burny is sure to come out on top during any barroom brawl over who owns the burliest lighter. This powerful butane/propane lighter ignites any camp stove with just the push of a button and is refillable from any standard butane refill can. The adjustable flame lets you dial in the perfect amount of flame, and the green plastic handle speaks to the leprechaun in your head who tells you to burn things.

Best Lighter for the Money
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
For any lighter to use cooking gas in addition to regular butane gas for most lighters is a big plus, especially when camping.
Yes, it is true in the cold weather the lighter might not light but there are two ways to get the flame. One can turn the flame to a higher setting, or put the lighter in the pocket for a few minutes to get warm.
Small enough to fit inside the cooking gear yet powerful enough to light the stove, and candles.

Although it looks up to the task it isn't. A few things about this lighter:
The flame projected from this thing is really narrow. the problem with this is that the total surface area of the object you are tying to ignite is substantially small.
The second thing about this lighter is that the flame is inconsistent, you press down the button it turns on for a half a second then goes off, making you have to click it again and again. One thing not usually mentioned about these types of lighters is that they are elevation dependent. Meaning that if you at a high elevation the butane style lighters become quite finicky. Lastly maybe this just happened to me, but after a week of use this lighter just refuses to ignite. I get those quick hundreds of a second flame then poof, its gone again.
