Lighters are not unimportant in our current life, lighting candles, lighting cigarettes, lighting a fire… And when we look at the current lighter market, apart from various brands, the types of lighters include inflatable lighters, rechargeable lighters, and kerosene lighters. Three categories. So when choosing a lighter, people will inevitably be curious, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each of these three types of lighters?
Since there are three categories, we will explain them one by one.
The first is the inflatable lighter. Its advantages are good airtightness and low odor. And because the gas density is less difficult to compress, the lighter of the same volume can be used longer than the oil-filled lighter. Its disadvantage is that it can be used for a short time. Because the structure of the inflatable lighter is relatively complex, it is easy to be damaged due to wear and tear during use, and it cannot be used continuously.
Followed by kerosene lighters, its advantages are high safety factor, simple structure and long service life. The disadvantage is that the airtightness is poor, so the internal kerosene is easy to volatilize, so it is necessary to add oil frequently. It should be noted that kerosene will inevitably have a certain special smell. So for the more sensitive people, this is also a disadvantage.
Last is the rechargeable lighter. Its advantages are high safety, easy to carry, and it can be very telling when it can be brought on the plane. The disadvantage is that the charging time is long, which is not particularly convenient for many people.
To sum up, here are the advantages and disadvantages of inflatable lighters, rechargeable lighters, and kerosene lighters.
