The Zippo Classic Brushed Chrome Lighter that I received to review came neatly packaged in a little black box so you could, if you wished, store it in the box when not in use. It would make an excellent present for the over eighteens and would be suitable for male or female. You could also make it extra special and have it engraved as Zippo offer to engrave it for you (for a small charge) when ordering on their website, which is a great idea.
The lighter is made carefully in the USA and comes with a set of instructions to show you how to fill the lighter with Zippo fluid, which can also be purchased from them as well as extra wicks. The instructions which are located in the lid in several languages but the writing is small and fairly hard to read even if you wear glasses, but then there is not a lot of room to make the instructions bigger as it all has to fit in the box but you can go on YouTube to see how it’s done if the small writing was a problem.
Also in the box under the lighter is the website you can access showing you all the Zippo products tips and hints, there is a wide variety of different products so something to suit everybody and they are all reasonably priced which surprised me.
The lighter is easy to fill and a wick which is easy to replace once used. The hinged lid and windproof flame makes it easy to use.
The Zippo lighter comes with a lifetime guarantee and it states that if any Zippo lighter does not work then they will fix it for free for its entire life, so if you have an old genuine Zippo lighter from years ago and its stopped working they will fix it for free which is worth knowing! Not many products give you that guarantee but you know you are a buying an iconic product “ZIPPO ” which has lasted over the years… and it’s a name most people have heard of.
An excellent quality lighter.
RRP: £18.46 (Classic Brushed Chrome) / add £9.99 for optional engraving
