Fantastic lighter. The extension is not flimsy. Make sure you pick up the adapter to fill it from hiking canisters. It is fairly wind resistant and lights on all angles of orientation.

Pay attention to the altitude rating. They are not kidding when they say it will not operate above the prescribed altitude. Carry backup firestarter.

You are paying $25 and the refilling adapter is not included? So with the additional $15, it ends up becoming a very pricy gadget for an advanced lighter. Wind-resistant is good but honestly even with the adapter, I wasn’t sure how long it would last as mine stopped working the next day even though I barely used it. Unless SOTO doesn’t include the adapter in their package, I would say to just stick to the type you put a BIC lighter in which I remember not having issue years ago when I owned one.

You do not need the fill adapter if you purchase fuel from a grocery like Fred Meyers that has canned fuel (see Bronson Multifill). Actually, few consumers purchase the fill adapter for their pocket torch.

Also, if your torch quit working please email [email protected] and we will send you a brand new pocket torch at no charge to you. SOTO stands behind their product. (We don’t check comments on the website very often, though.)

Excellent product! Even better customer service! It burns every different type of butane I’ve put in it. used it as my around the house lighter for candles, fire pit, grill igniter,etc For about 5 years until I had trouble with The igniter. I called customer service to see if there was anything I could do to repair it and they sent me a new one that day! Love this company and their products! Thank you!

Its a great lighter but within. A month of owning it it will no longer light even though it clicks.

Have you contacted SOTO to request a replacement? We do stand behind our product and always willing to provide a replacement if your current one fails on you.

The torch was working good and recently it does not switch off (This is a older model). I called the company and filed a warrenty claim. They immediately replaced with a newer model. Today I tested it and works great. Great service. I recomend it.
