Just a FYI, some claim Ronsonol butane isn't very pure as compared to
other brands. Some lighter manufacturers suggest not to use it in their
devices. I have no idea what trace substances they object to.
Reality? Who knows. Seems most butane comes out of Korea and could
simply be repackaged/branded.
Hopefully there are few smokers on the list, and if you do, don't smoke
near your instruments. I only use a lighter for camping. You guys in the
UK have the best: Turboflame. I've repaired (soldered) antennas in the
field with a turboflame.
Try lighting an Esbit square with a regular lighter versus a turbo.
