Classic Stormproof Lighter
In the event of an emergency in the wilderness, heat is essential to survival. The Windmill Stormproof Lighter's Piezoelectric Ignition Technology has made a true storm proof lighter possible. Windmill butane lighters can withstand a 70-80 mph wind, burn at almost 2000 F and stay water tight when closed. When open, the piezo-electric ignition of the Windmill Lighter system means that it will light even when it gets wet. Unlike the Windmill Lighter, this cannot be said of “flint type” lighters. Best of all, the Windmill Lighter burns regular butane lighter fluid found at any grocery store. The impact resistant polycarbonate outer case of the Windmill Classic Lighter promotes low thermal conductivity which keeps the lighter comfortable to the touch in cold weather. This windproof lighter has it all. The Windmill Storm Proof Lighter is a very valuable piece of survival equipment, is small, 2-1/16” x 1-3/4” x 5/8” weighs 1.1 oz. and is extremely durable. Windmill Lighter Features: All Windproof 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. A. Windproof Flame While many lighters claim to be windproof lighters, only Windmill lighters can withstand 70-80 mile per hour winds. Windmill's platinum (white gold) catalyzer coil provides continuous ignition of the gas vapors creating a clean, hot flame nearly invisible in outdoor bright light. B. Piezoelectric Ignition Technology Windmill'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 ignitions. C. Water Resistant Rubber O-Ring Seals Windmill lighters have five rubber O-ring seals to ensure water resistance and keep water out when the lighter cap is closed. D. Flame Window A ceramic 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 Fuel 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 minutes). F. Performs 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 Choice 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.
