Description

Fire is fascinating, isn't it? We could stare at the orangey wobbly stuff for hours. In fact we reckon it's probably our favourite classical element. As Beavis and Butthead used to say, 'Fire rules!' But aside from its mesmerizing aesthetic qualities fire is also rather handy, especially when it comes to lighting things; a screamingly obvious fact, but, judging by the amount of times we're caught short without matches or a lighter, one which few of us seem to pay any attention to.

Turboflame
Maybe that's because lighting things with traditional lighters isn't always as easy as it seems. After all, bog standard lighters are all well and good but they don't really cut the mustard when it's windy. Most of them produce wimpy flames that need to be hand-cupped to stop them blowing out.

Turboflame That's why we were seriously impressed when we first witnessed the powerful Turboflame doing its thing. This chic little portable fire source (okay, so it's a lighter) is an essential piece of kit for anyone who likes to have instantaneous access to a roaring jet of fire. And that means everyone!


Turboflame Resembling something Ripley might use to incinerate aliens (if she was 6 inches tall) the Turboflame produces a powerful 1300°c jet of blue fire that is practically impervious to wind. Think exhaust-pipe of the Batmobile mixed with a blowtorch! Measuring just over 7cm high including its handy safety cap, the Turboflame is small enough to fit on a key ring, and its roaring jet can be locked for continuous use, making it ideal for lighting fires, candles, barbecues or even giving your mini brûlées a quick blast.

Turboflame Refillable using standard lighter gas, the macho-looking Turboflame is built to last and is guaranteed to elicit gasps of amazement from light-cadgers and casual onlookers alike. More than that, it's got hundreds of uses around the home, garden, workshop and campsite. Got a light mate? No, I've got a Turboflame!

    • You must be 16 years or over to purchase this product

    Please note:
    • We are unable to offer a colour choice for this product. We apologise for any inconvenience.
    • Refillable using lighter gas.
    • Power laser-jet flame – ideal for hard to reach places.
    • Multi-angle flame lights upside downward horizontally. Great for stoves, BBQ's and candles.
    • 1300ºC flame cuts through nylon rope, seat cord, spot heats plastic/rubber and solders/quenches metal.
    • Wax skis, seal micro-cracks, thaw frozen locks, fuse wires, and other outdoor uses.
    Warning:
    • Suitable for adults only, keep away from children.
    • Ignite lighter away from self, others and flammables.
    • Beware of flame which my be invisible in bright light. Actual heat length is longer than visible flame
    • Be sure flame is fully extinguished after use.
    • Turboflame is ideal for ignition and short-duration high intensity heat (1300ºC). If used longer than 15 seconds continuously the tip may become hot and due care should be taken before storage.
    • Never expose to heat above 50ºC (120ºF) or to prolonged sunlight (eg. car dashboard).
    • Contains flammable gas under pressure. Never puncture or put in fire.
    Care and Maintenance:
    • For long term reliability of Turboflame it is essential the burner hole – where flame comes out – be kept clean.
    • Objects should be lit at least 1 inch away from burner hole – i.e. In heat of flame and not flame itself.
    • Do not touch burner hole with the tip of a cigarette or other object. This will cause ash/debris to fall in the lighter and clog it up.
    • Keep lighter clean from dust and dirt in pockets.
    • Periodically, blow dust and carbon build up from burner hole using compressed air as follows (compressed air can be purchased from office supply or computer/hardware stores):
      • Place compressed air canister at least 1 inch away from burner hole or damage may occur.
      • Proceed with 3 short bursts of air. Allow lighter to reach room temperature before igniting.
    • When flame gets weak and low it usually indicates gas tanks is empty. At this point bleed and refill lighter (see accompanying instructions for refilling information). Constant adjustment of flame height will cause damage to lighter.
    • If gas tank is still full and flame is still weak or low, turn up flame height adjuster at base of lighter to achieve desired flame height. Never adjust height while flame is on. Do not force adjustment valve, beyond pre-set maximum and minimum levels.
    • Do not set the flame too high. Apart from being dangerous to the user, a very high flame may cause the lighter to malfunction. Lighter will not ignite and a hissing sound will be heard. Lower flame immediately.
    • If flame jumps it usually indicates trapped air in the gas tank. Bleed air and refill lighter.
    • Operate ignition switch slowly with and care. Misfiring usually occurs with fast ignition or flicking lighter on and off.
    • For best performance and longevity of your lighter, only use gas marked 'Triple/Double Refined' or 'Near Zero Impurities'. Impurities in gas may cause carbon build-up and clog the burner.
    What to do if your lighter fails to ignite after the first refill, even at the highest setting:
    • If your lighter fails to ignite after the first refill, even at highest setting try the bleed and refill procedure as noted in the instructions or see this FAQ. Make sure the lighter is at room temperature when you are doing the adjustments. If at maximum setting your Turboflame does not produce a forceful flame (or no flame), then try one last thing:

      If you have a model with a flame adjustment screw at the bottom, using a 4mm tip flat head screw driver, turn the adjustment screw 1/8 turn at a time Counter Clock Wise BEYOND the first resistance (maximum) setting. Just apply a gentle force while turning the screw, you can go as far as 1/4 to even 1/2 turn beyond what some people may think is the maximum setting (that is just a safety net set up for summer heat when gas pressure is much higher than the cooler days we normally have in the UK). After each 1/8 turn, try ignition and check flame height until desired setting is reached.
