Refillable Lighterby Miss SULLIVAN

3 stars out of 5

Handy Lighter

I purchased this lighter for my Aunt as she was having trouble lighting her cooker. It worked like a dream but has now ran out of gas. I have taken it home to refill but think I will have to throw it away as I found it impossible to refill. What was even more disappointing was reading all these other posts from 2009/10 citing the same problem - why hasn't it been recitified yet? Most unlike Lakeland - I am really quite shocked. Please, please rectify the problem.

This review is for an older version of this product

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. The handy lighter can be refilled by placing the nozzle from the refill cartridge into the hole at the base. The lighter must be locked before refilling. Please allow to stand for 30 minutes after refilling before lighting. I’ll be in touch to put things right.

Like other customers I think the handy lighter is too shoddy. Please can you stock another lighter which can be filled and would be cheaper than throwing lots of handy lighters away. Thanks

Non refillable lighterby stephen Emmerson

Handy Lighter

Having been very patient with my refillable handy lighters, but finally cracked and said goodbye to my refillable handy lighters after trying for the 100th time and with the umpteenth different type of gas canister to refill any of the six handy refillable lighters that i have scattered in handy places around the house. Having given in to the fact that i would have to buy new refillable handy lighters i went on line and read the reviews, and wow i'm not the only one to have this problem. Could you please recommend a lighter refill that would be compatible with my one remaining handy lighter or change the description to non refillable handy lighter in your brochure. On the positive side they are very good value and reliable.

Re-ordering in spite of downsideby Katherine Howard

Here I go again, ordering more of these lighters. They are great apart from being impossible to refill. I did write to you some time ago asking if they really were refillable.

Good but throwaway onlyby Mrs Jaye-Jones

I agree with other reviewers. These are very good handy lighters but impossible to refill. I just buy them and throw them away when they run out. Would be better with a longer reach for lighting the oven.

Won't Lastby Mrs Steele

This lighter is very good for lighting the candles round the house. No more burnt fingers. The plastic casing is not the best quality however and it is very difficult to refill as the refill "hole" is located too deep within the plastic casing. It's not bad for the price though. Update - It eventually fell to bits as I struggled to refill it, so it went in the bin. I replaced it for a similar item I found in a supermarket which looks better and was slightly cheaper.

Excellent lighter, easy to use but not to refill. As it is reasonably priced this does not matter.

Very easy to use, compared to those slim, long designed ones, (especially when hands are not spotlessly clean and dry), easy to refill, lights everything, hob, candles, bbq.... Good

What a Find.by Mrs Phillips

Handy Lighter

Suffering with arthritis in my fingers (especially my right hand) this Handy Lighter is so very easy to use and I can put it on with my thumbs which aren't affected. I have so many handy "gadgets" which help with everyday kitchen life and this is another one to add to them. I must say my husband first bought two when he visited the store and since then we have bought more to give to friends in the same position. Thank you to whoever designed this lighter.......
