Zippo Butane lighters have arrived. It only took them about 50 years, but Zippo has finally come out with a U.S. made butane lighter. We think it was worth the wait. From the familiar click when opening to the flint wheel sparker, this is classic Zippo. But the fuel gauge on the side, and the perfectly adjusted flame height, reveal this to be the best of new technology, too. They come empty, so you will need to pick up a bottle of butane at the grocery or drug store. These are also great lighters for cigar smokers, because they burn clean and cool – and they won’t dry out between uses.
