Various Types of Lighters
Bic Lighters were one of the pioneers of butane-filled lighters. Butane appears to have less odour and controls flames easily. But other than the butane-filled lighters, there are also a few types of lighters available in stores:
Automobile lighter. As the name suggests, this lighter is installed in cars. It is usually housed in a lighter receptacle wherein an electric heating element generates the heat without producing any flame on the lighter but is hot enough to burn.
Permanent match. This is like the conventional wooden match we use at home. The difference though is that the rod does not get burned since it is made up of metal, and so is the metal housing that is filled with fuel. Placing the matchstick back to the metal casing can put out the flame.
Decorative lighter. This is the type commonly used by the younger generation. It comes in a wide array of designs that makes it more appealing. Bic Lighters and Zippo lighters are known to be the best in decorative lighters.
Windproof lighter. This uses butane as its fuel but is specially made for windy conditions. Unlike the conventional butane lighters, these windproof lighters contain a catalytic coil that aids the flame to withstand the winds.
Naptha lighter. This was used before butane-filled lighters were produced. Naptha is the fuel for the flame, and it is more volatile compared to butane.
