If blazing is your goal, the Primus Power Ignitor Lighter is the key.

Don't let a breeze keep you from heating up dinner in camp—pack the Primus Power Ignitor Lighter and get that stove ablaze. The uses for a windproof lighter may be limited in number, but having a flame that works anytime, anywhere is indispensable to any backcountry regular. The Power Ignitor Lighter's body is machined from solid aircraft aluminum, and features a short lanyard for clipping to the outside of a pack or to a key clip in your pocket. It refills through a bottom port with readily-available compressed butane.

Great Lighter

Purchased this lighter to place in my Primus Omni Fuel stove's carrying bag. Very easy to fill, simple to use, flames on like a blow torch, adjusts easily. Used it in Florida, cannot yet comment on performance at altitude.

Cannot Recommend

I've had mine for less than a year. Recently the igniter button would not consistantly spark. Now it will not ignite at all. It worked great when it worked. I would not expect it to last long. Always bring a backup source for starting a fire.
I emailed Primus, told them about the problem and asked about their warranty but I haven't received a response.

how do you fill/refill this lighter?

I could hardly believe someone made a youtube video to answer this, but here it is (and the music is fun too):

ah, haha thats embarrassing. all ive seen were the butane canisters for stoves, which, obviously, dont have the injecting needle.

The Little Lighter that Could!

Wow, this lighter takes a beating and never fails. It went on two very windy 3-week kayaking trips where, despite being doused with saltwater over and over because of my own forgetfulness in putting it in a safer place, always started like an absolute charm. It just spent the weekend winter camping in the Cascades with us and again performed perfectly. So glad to see backcountry.com has these back in stock; gonna order a couple more! Two thumbs up!

Forgot to add that it seems very fuel efficient as well - I've never had it run out of butane on its own so I don't actually know how long a full tank will last... on the longer trips we had to run it out on purpose to fly with it!

Great below 10k ft.

Works wonderful below 10,000 ft. MSL elevation. Above that it becomes erratic at 11,000, and won't work at all above 13,000. Read elsewhere about turning down the output at higher altitude. Haven't tried that yet. Will report findings when I have a chance.

This little bugger lights every time and with authority. I was amazed at the quality, it feels like it should cost twice as much or more. Buy 2, you will not be disappointed.

I have not had to refill the lighter yet, so I cannot comment on that aspect.

the lighter comes with no fuel in it.. you have to refill it. hold it up to the light and you should see the level of liquid.
