Instructions for Use

Lighters:XIKAR Lighter Ignited

IGNITING THE LIGHTER

  • A simple push on the ignition switch ignites a powerful 
    flame over 2,000 degrees.  This flame can be nearly invisible in 
    bright light, so proper care is recommended.

TAKE CARE NOT TO TOUCH THE LIGHTER TOP AFTER IGNITION.

  • To avoid heat buildup, do not use in any situation that would 
    require a continuous flame for more than 10 seconds. The lighter 
    may become too hot and cause harm to the lighter and/or the user.

EXTINGUISHING THE FLAME

  • Releasing pressure from the ignition button of the lighter 
    immediately extinguishes the flame by stopping fuel flow. 
    If flame continues, the flame level is set too high and should be 
    adjusted by turning the adjustment wheel on the bottom of the 
    lighter towards the (-) position.

ADJUSTING FLAME LEVEL

  • Turn the fuel adjustment wheel on the bottom of the lighter 
    towards the (+) mark to increase the flame and turn the wheel 
    towards the (-) to decrease the flame to achieve a desired height. 

FILLING AND RE-FILLING LIGHTERLighter Bleeding with XIKAR MTX Tool

  1. Release all tank pressure by pressing on the inlet valve with a small 
    screwdriver or a XIKAR MTX Multi Tool bleeder (shown). Hold the 
    lighter vertical while bleeding valve. Repeat this several times until all 
    fuel/ gas pressure is released. 
  2. Set flame adjustment to lowest setting (-). 
  3. Turn lighter in upside down position and insert butane tank tip directly 
    on the fuel valve.  Press down firmly for about 5 seconds.  
  4. Before igniting lighter, wait 3-4 minutes.  This allows excess butane to 
    evaporate and gas inside lighter to reach room temperature. 
  5. Set flame level to desired height by turning flame adjuster wheel.
