A versatile wind-resistant lighter that uses widely available disposable lighters as its fuel source.

SOTO says:

Electronic ignition! Strong, wind-resistant burner. Disposable lighter becomes a wind-resistant burner.

The Pocket Torch uses disposable lighter fuel. Light the Pocket Torch with a disposable lighter. It produces a flame that reaches temperatures up to 1300°C (approx. 2,300 °F). A disposable lighter increases it lifespan by 60% when used with SOTO's Pocket Torch.

CAUTION: The torch may not ignite under colder temperatures or high altitudes above 5,000 ft. / 1,500m.

 

Superb piece of kit this from SOTO - especially as a disposable lighter is available just about everywhere. Without the lighter it weighs 50g which you may think is a luxury weight - however I've wasted loads of meths in the past struggling to get my burner lit especially when only half full - I suspect with this I'll save the weight in fuel.

It turns out that it doesn't work with every lighter as there is a size variation across the world, however I can report I've taken one on trips in the UK, France and Chile and each time managed to get a lighter that fits without a problem.

wot no disposable lighters to fit?

Looks like a nice piece of kit, but unfortunately seems not to work with commonly available lighters in the UK ie BIC etc.. There does not seem to be a UK stockist for Scripto disposables. Pity.
