Great lighter, easy to fill,
Great lighter, easy to fill, strong flame. Just watch your thumbs if you’re igniting with an airflow blowing the flame towards your thumb cause that hurts.

Makes my Zippo into a great lighter
Got this about four days ago and I love it. Unlike others I've only had it fail to light on the first push once. Fits my Zippo case perfectly. Nice that you can see how much butane is left. Only issue for me is it (as too many things are) is designed for a right hander.

Great product
This is a great lighter. I have much more expensive lighters that flat out don’t work properly. These little inserts are great. They light every time on the first or second press of the trigger. The are affordable, and the ability to put it in any zippo type case means you can personalize it any way you want. Highly Recommend.

Nice but Doesn’t Light
Looks good. Fits Zippo just right (tho NOT Continental brand “windproof”). Unfortunately, strikes to a flame maybe 1 of 50 tries? It goes back for refund later today!

Hello Butane, So Long Naphtha
The best way to convert a favorite flip-top lighter from fluid to gas. Fits the case perfectly. Has a dependable piezo spark that lights nearly every time. Lets you see how much butane is in the lighter. Flame adjusts so you don't burn the rims of your pipes. Very reasonably priced. Works fine.

Works well
It works well the only issue I have had is the flame does not get to the bottom of the bigger bowl pipes.

Awkward and unreliable
I have a love/hate relationship with this. It's a massive improvement over my Zippo 'regular' lighter. This insert fits perfectly inside the Zippo case, once you remove the 'standard' Zippo insert. The 'standard' insert that comes with Zippos require you you to fill it with Ronson lighter fluid and use the flint striker. This is a very reliable means of creating a flame, but not an option for pipe smokers. This new insert is seriously nice in that it's clear so you can see how much butane is in it. Also, no worries of leaking Ronson fluid. No flints to replace. The side-port of the insert is (obviously) good for pipe smokers...which brings me to the 'cons'. It doesn't spark reliably. Sometimes you have to push the button a few times before you get a flame. Yes, I've adjusted the flame size on the bottom of the insert...but if it doesn't 'spark', then that doesn't help. I also 'bled' the insert before filling with new high-quality butane. The worst thing is that while the port for the flame is now on the side of the 'chimney' on the insert (ideal for pipes), the whole thing becomes rather unwieldy when you got to actually use it. You have to hold the button down while tilting the entire lighter to the side at an awkward angle. The button is by no means a 'light touch', and you will have to use more pressure on the button than would be comfortable for 5-7 seconds to light a pipe. The insert looked like a great idea, and it is most definitely a massive improvement over a flint-striker and lighter fluid. So as a basic Zippo 'upgrade', this one is excellent (except for the multiple times you have to push the button to get a spark). HOWEVER: using it as a pipe lighter is not something this insert does well. Not well at all. In the end, I have an upgraded Zippo, so it's not a complete loss. However, it meant I have to search for other options for lighting pipes.

Backorder
An excellent product I've used one for over a year. The only problem is that I would like another one but they have been on backorder since at least 9/24 !

The beauty of the z-plus
The z-plus worked beautifully the first time I used it. It fits snug and tight. It's great that it has a see-thru butane housing so you know how much butane you have left. I've ordered another one for my other zippo. No more messy and smelly lighter fluid. What a marvelous invention !

overall a good item.
As noted in some other reviews fit is not perfect but I'm good with it. Use this lighter everyday.

Nice Lighter
Just what I was looking for. I love my Zippo, but was weary of the lighter fluid mess. What a great alternative! It delivers a nice soft flame with no mess. My only complaint is that it usually takes a couple of strikes to get it lit

Closing the lid to make it work !
For James S who wrote " what lighter is this designed for" the Reason for the lid not closing is that the cam arm or lever (to the left of the flame hole) is probably not in the down position and touching the inside of the lid. Correct this and you should have no more problems.

Works like a trooper
This handy unit is much more reliable than some look-a-like brands. Will light with one click when it is still cold from being refilled. Almost no mis-fires. Well worth the investment.

Works great
Works great - slips neatly into my Zippo case and I sure don't miss the lighter fluid mess!

Getting the hinged cover to close
To James S who wrote "what lighter is this designed for" I suspect that your problem is that the fuel valve or cam arm (the part that goes into the hinged cap) is in the up position . This will keep the hinged cover from closing. Push the Cam arm down so that it rests on the lid, then close the lid. This should solve your problem.

Making the lid work
For James S who wrote "what lighter is this designed for" when you install the lighter insert there is a metal tab that faces the hinge. This tab must be in the down position (flip it to your left) so that it's touching the lid. This will allow you to close the lid all the way. Give it a try---it works !

Installing z-plus pipe lighter insert
For the individual who asked "what lighter is this designed For" and "the lid of the zippo won"t close over it",be sure that the fuel valve hinge is opened otherwise it won't close. I have a zippo and the z-plus insert works just fine.

Zippo inserts
I have two Zippo inserts the Vector Thunderbird pipe lighter insert which is unreliable and rarely lights on the first try; it uses a flint to provide spark. The Z-Plus however, consistently lights the first time and the flame is more than adequate for lighting my pipe.

What lighter is this designed for?
The lid to my zippo case won't close over it. When flipping the lid open the classic 'clink' sound is gone. The insert functions well, it just doesn't fit in a zippo case.
