Brenden Kelly: I did this but I used one of the tips that came with my butane that was small enough to fit in the divet and big enough to cover the little keyhole slot. Just have to keep it flat when filling. The thing with the thumbtack is working so far. Or if you use metal tacks it even works as a pipe tamp.
Joseph Hintze: just get an Inferno lighter and stop wasting your money on crapty lighters. My inferno recharges and lasts for days, waterproof, windproof, and built like a tank.
Suq Madiq: Thanks for the tutorial.. I have Ben Cousin's visiting me next weekend. I need to make sure all my lighters are full...
Paco Martinez: I don't know why, but you sound like the type of guy that's racist, but you're so cool I'd want you to like me.
dave03085: What a tight arse just buy a new one
Chris 77: Sweet!
Kenneth Lyneham: This is so dangerous for such a little return. Have you ever watch when your empty LPG bottle is refilled at an authorised filling station? If so, you should have noticed that before opening the refilling valve, they open a little vent. The purpose of this is to relieve the pressure inside your bottle allowing liquid to flow as gas flows out. If you don't do that, then very little liquid will flow in. The pressure in a butane container is 2 atmospheres ie twice the air pressure at sea level, around 30psi. I would not like to risk my life on the ability of a pin not glued in to stay in place while in my pocket. In the US LPG is a mixture of propane (C3 H8) and butane (C4 H10) and is generally at a higher pressure than butane. Cigarette lighters are filled with butane at 2 atmospheres.
dylan c: Better to do this outside and don't light the bic right after you refilled it, because there's probably excess butane roaming in the air that could ignite.
MEELO 14: Wtf ill just buy a new one
BordersaneX: Home Depot?...is that like, an american thing?
Mars Seeker: secure that pin with some glue . Thank you for sharing .
DasEnigma: I was looking into this to refill a see through bic I have cause I like to be able to see the fluid left in it for backpacking. But for all this trouble and the pin stuck at the bottom of it would make it to big for my waterproof sleeve I have for it. Too much work I'll just look around for a similar one. Peelable stickers is usually a good way to tell if its clear. Thanks anyway for the video. Good to know however. As a backup in case I ever need to be resourceful. Helpful still. Thanks.
jstric2608: Just buy Scorch lighters.
4cooey: Bic's are like a buck man, just sayin
obhobo: Do not do this. Buy a lighter for a buck. Or a refillable butane. This is moronic.
tom faro: Won't work in the morning
Mästare Kalk:3:32 drops lighter as if it was the mic
