Evolving from Butane torches used in industrial applications, the modern household torch shares a common lineage with those used by pastry chefs. While you may never use one of these to get the perfect sear on a Creme Brulee, the durable construction will ensure you never get burned. Piezo wire ignition powers the flame, creating a spark from electrical voltage, which ignites the Butane. This type of ignition is commonly favored in camping equipment, such as stoves, for its longevity and robustness.
Keep the right tool for the job, when a regular lighter won't cut it, a torch lighter can fill the void. Butane torches offer a clean burning and efficient flame which can be used in a variety of applications. The flames produced by units are much more intense than that of a normal lighter, burning at temperatures exceeding 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. Organic materials can be easily vaporized with the aid of a torch.
When picking up a torch lighter size is one of the most important factors to consider. If you’re a frequent traveler, then a smaller torch is for you as it is a little more conducive to your dab-around-the-world lifestyle. Larger torches are better suited for users who mostly enjoy their rigs at home, as they can better hold large butane canisters saving you from having to constantly order new ones. A bigger torch will also heat your nail more evenly, as the flame can encompass the whole nail (comically large nails aside).
This choice is mostly an aesthetic one but is something good to consider for the long run. Think you’ll always be into Medusa themed artwork? Awesome, snag a metallic Medusa themed torch. For those who might not be as dedicated to their niche interests, there are other options, from classic all black to something with a little more flavor. Your rig setup also will influence this choice, an all-glass rig like the Higher Standards Heavy Duty Rig (HYPERLINK) is more at home next to a toned down torch, while more “out there” rigs might be better linked up with something with a little more color.
A reliable torch will do more than just get its trigger pulled while being pointed at your nail. The main objective for a torch is to evenly heat your nail. “Hot spots” can ruin your concentrate enjoyment, as it will add a random boost of heat to some sections and run the risk of combustion. A torch lighter with a wider flame (usually larger ones) will help you evenly heat the nail every time. Some high-end torches even feature flame adjustment, so no matter the nail situation you can always evenly cover it.
While an “easy to use” torch lighter is preferred by a lot of users, an easy to fill vape can be just as helpful for your torch lighter setup. Say you’re in the middle of heating your dab nail, disaster strikes and you run out of fuel mid-heat session. It would be way better to have a torch lighter that is easily refillable in this situation rather than one that is just “easy to use” and cumbersome. If you can find a torch with a fuel indicator you’ll be able to better anticipate your fuel needs before you run out mid dab session.
A top tier torch lighter will have safety features to make your torching as low-risk as possible. Dab torches with a wide base are less susceptible to being knocked over, which will help to keep the inner workings protected from dislodging from a fall. Red safety caps also help keep novices safe, as the first torch attempt can sometimes be a little intimidating and lead to bigger than wanted flames.
