All Windproof, now by UST, Lighters Are Not Created Equal
Only Windmill has earned the right to call
their lighters Stormproof®. While other lighters may claim
some wind resistance, none can match Windmill's performance.
While many lighters claim to be windproof lighters, only
Windmill lighters can withstand 70-80 mile per hour winds.
USTs platinum (white gold) catalyzer coil provides
continuous ignition of the gas vapors creating a clean, hot flame
nearly invisible in outdoor bright light.
Piezoelectric Ignition Technology
Windmill's, now UST's, piezo-electric ignition system eliminates the
need for batteries or flints which fail when wet. Piezo is a
mechanical system which produces a spark when the lighter ignition
is pressed. Independent laboratory tests have found the
piezoelectric system to be good for over 30,000
C. Water Resistant Rubber
UST lighters have five rubber O-ring seals to ensure water
resistance and keep water out when the lighter cap is closed.
flame window located on the side of the burner unit of the Windmill Lighter glows a bright,
white color when the lighter is ignited.
E. Refillable Butane Gas
Refill the Windmill Lighter easily in just a few seconds with
economical, clean burning butane gas. Fuel cans are readily
available at most grocery, drug and convenience stores. Burn
time of the Windmill Lighter is approximately 300 ignitions at 3-5 seconds duration (over 30
In Extreme Environments
Windmill lighters will work in extremely low temperatures
(-40 degrees F.) if the lighter is kept above freezing. Simply
storing the windproof lighter in an inside pocket will accomplish this.
Windmill lighters are optimized for use up to 9,000', but have
been used as high as 15,000' by adjusting the flame to a lower
setting to maximize oxygen content.
G. Butane - The Best
Butane gas is the cleanest and hottest burning
fuel available for outdoor lighters. Windmill Stormproof
Lighters burn at nearly 2,000° F. Butane gas is very
economical and widely available in most grocery, drug and
convenience stores. Butane gas is also odorless and extremely easy
to re-fill while liquid oil fuel used in other lighters burns at a
lower temperature, has a strong odor, and is noxious to the skin of
spilled during re-filling. PREMIUM BUTANE GAS will provide
superior performance in your Windmill Lighter.
