If you are a collector of novelty items, you are in the right place. Novelty items can come in all shapes and sizes, and a popular niche in the novelty world is the lighter.
There are many novelty lighters, from those that look like cars and dinosaurs, to guns, pencils, and more.
Today, we are here to take a closer look at one such novelty lighter, the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter, which is functional as well, something that cannot often be said for other novelty items.
Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter
The Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter is a unique lighter, and it makes a great conversation starter at any party. It is a cigar lighter, so it is intended for cigar smokers, but even if you don’t smoke, it is still a neat centerpiece on any table. It may not be the cheapest lighter out there, but it has a unique design, it’s durable, and it works well.
Who is This Product For?
Of course, the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter is intended for people who smoke cigars, and lots of them. That said, technically speaking, occasional smokers or cigars, or other smokables could use it too. If nothing else, it features a cool and unique design. It’s the kind of thing you could have on a table or shelf even if you don’t smoke, just to spark a delightful conversation.
When you purchase the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter, you get a lighter that looks like a little propane burner, something like a camping stove, but of course, it’s used for lighting cigars, not for cooking. It comes with a huge fuel receptacle to make sure that it doesn’t have to be refilled often, and that’s about it.
Overview of Features
First, we cannot help but once again mention the unique design of the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter. It looks like a small propane burner that you would use to cook food at the campsite, that, or it could also resemble a teakettle.
Either way, it has a distinctive design and it makes a great conversation starter too. Remember, it is kind of a novelty item, so it is meant to spark conversations, pun intended.
Besides that, keep in mind that this is a very powerful jet flame lighter – with a huge flame. It’s designed to light cigars quickly, evenly, and consistently, providing a full light within seconds, all without a sooty or ashy taste.
Another benefit of jet flame lighters is that they are highly resistant to wind. This unit is meant primarily as an indoor piece, but if you use it outside, even if it is windy, you should still be able to get your cigars lit.
This is a butane powered lighter, and butane is a very reliable fuel, so that’s something. Moreover, the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter comes with a 1.4-ounce fuel tank, which as you might know, is pretty big for a lighter. This lighter is said to be able to light up to 1,000 cigars before it requires a refill.
We like the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter for its ergonomic handle design, as it can be lit with a single hand, almost like shooting a gun.
The Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter is very easy to use. All you do is hold the handle, hit the button with your thumb, and it will stay lit for however long you hold it down. To refill it, simply purchase some generic butane lighter fluid, insert the nozzle into the receptacle valve located on the bottom of the lighter, and hold the butane canister in place for a couple of seconds.
- Very cool and unique design
- Reliable functionality
- Large jet flame for easy lighting
- Ergonomic design and easy to light
- Refillable fuel tank
- Not portable at all
- Igniter does not always work
In case you would like a jet flame torch cigar lighter that is a bit smaller and more portable, a great option to consider is the Vertigo by Lotus Cyclone Triple Torch Cigar Lighter, with another being the TOMOLO Quadruple Flame Torch Lighter.
The bottom line is that while the Alec Bradley “The Burner” Table Cigar Lighter may not be something you use outside of your home, it works as intended, and it looks neat too.
