    Zippo does make a butane torch style lighter that has the same sort of case and heft as a normal zippo but it is butane. This should help with the whole being able to not use it for long periods of time thing.

    my parents are finally allowing me to buy a zippo, but it has to has some kind of "safety" mechanism, so I narrowed it down to a normal one with a Z-Plus insert, or a Zippo Blu. Any advice on which one to get?

    I don't know why people hate on zippos so much. I don't find refilling them a hassle, and I think they have a lot of character.

    can you clarify what they mean by "safety" mechanism?
    why is compressed butane safer than zippo fuel?

    I think the only 'safety' on a zippo is the lid. Not sure how else it would be implemented.
    How is a 'safety' on a lighter going to help a 14 yr. old?
