Z Plus Torch Flame Lighter Insert

I just ordered a "Z Plus Torch Flame Lighter Insert" off Ebay today for $11 after shipping and was wondering if anyone here has one or has tried one. I thought for $11 it was worth a shot and if it allows me to revive my beautiful Zippo it would be well worth it.

Here is a pretty good description and picture:

Thanks,
Lincoln

A lot of guys here use them. it is a great lighter for the price and has a nice large tank.

The tank isnt as big as it could be , I love BOTH of mine, I carry 2 as the first one seams to run out before the day is over ! Zippo is now making a butane lighter called Zippo Blue Flame, I havent used one yet, but if it is as good as the Z insert it will be a winner ! Enjoy, Vince

Maybe I missed the topic but it seems these should have been discussed somewhere for all us noobs who don't want to spend $70 on a nice torch.

It's been discussed several times - if you do a search here on Cigars 101 (where I moved the thread) - you should come across the discussions.

I just got mine the other day. Thanks again, Chris!

So I guess the next thing on my "To Do" list is learn how to use the search function. I did try to search for it but I got back like 1,000,000,000,000,000,001 results and the first 5 didn't have anything about it so obviously the rest wouldn't either.

I've used one of these for a while since I heard about them on here. I love it, I do agree that the tank could be bigger, but the price is great. I don't like taking my expensive lighters out to the bar, but this one is great for going out.

none of my local shops have the z-plus.
neither does cigar.com, CI, famous smoke, neptune cigar, cheaphumidors.com, mikescigars.com, ecigardepot.com, tampahumidor, holts cigar co., pipesandcigars.com, or any other source ive heard of.

where are all of you getting yours?

I have my Zplus and have been using it for a few weeks now. I think everyone that has seen it has asked me about it. Definitely worth the $10.
