Bugatti Lighters

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen any real innovation in the world of jet-flame torches, but Bugatti has created a line of sleek, handheld models that solve some of the common problems plaguing even the most expensive lighters.

Take, for example, that supremely annoying issue of air pockets in the fuel tank. Ever have a completely full tank of butane yet the lighter still refuses to light? This is often due to a stubborn air bubble that leaves you no choice but to bleed the entire lighter of all its fuel before filling up again. Bugatti solves the dilemma with its replaceable fuel pods.

Rather than having to fill up a tank, each lighter gets its own dedicated mini butane canister which loads directly into the handle. When it’s empty, you simply unscrew the cap at the base, toss the spent pod and pop in the new one.

The second innovative feature is the replaceable burner unit. Clogged jets are often the cause of lighter malfunction. But with the Bugatti system, you no longer have to send out the entire lighter for repair or replacement when an ignition problem occurs. Just snap off the old burner module and snap on the new one.

The lighter, with its sci-fi design and die-cast metal case, comes in two models: Vulcan or Mirage, both of which are offered in six colors and built with adjustable nozzles to direct your flame with laser-like precision. Regardless of the model, these lighters retail for $99 each and include one spare burner and one butane canister refill.
