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.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • Butane gas refill canister
  • Small screwdriver
  • Ronson butane adaptor (comes with the lighter or buy a replacement from a tobacco shop)
