We picked this up at Tesco for £3, it's very useful for pretty much everything. The video shows how easily it lights sparklers and visco, but you could use it for anything. It also claims to be windproof, so it would be fine for BBQ's as well. It is easily re-fillable with butane gas.

How reliable is it. I've had many turbo lighters and they eventually clog up because of the crap that flies into them from fuses.

I live in rothey world now lol

If you don't do a lot of fireworks and just a few sparklers it will be fine-however I do agree with you about the usefulness of this device eventually going due to crap flinging off the visco and fouling the igniter. ;)

We had this issue at bfn, not a big issue as we had tons of portfires to compensate, and for the price it didn't matter anyway. Little tip though, if it does become clogged, run a cocktail stick carefully around the top of the lighter, which will remove a lot of the crap thats there. Ours is still going strong through doing this

My jet lighter still works but it has being clogged up a bit so I will probably have to get a new one for next bonfire night. Can't complai though considering the price, as Somer said
