Ronson manufactures a line of electronic lighters fuelled by butane gas. A nozzle on the bottom of the lighter connects to a butane canister for quick refills. Basic safety precautions include working in a well-ventilated area away from all sources of heat and flame. This means no smoking while refilling the Ronson, and the lighter cannot be used during the procedure.
