I'll start with a positive - When this torch works, it's a great torch and very easy to use. Now here come the negatives -- I have purchased this torch twice in the last 6 months and both times the torch stopped working. The first time I bought it, it lasted for about 3-4 months and then something inside broke and I could hear a piece rattling. It would not light after that. The second one I purchased less than a month ago and it has already stopped working. I thought it was just out of butane, so I added more, but it still won't light. I really liked how easy the torch was to use, but very bummed out that both times the torch stopped working.
