This was my first butane torch. I mainly used for electronic applications. First, let me say that I am very impressed at how very well built this tool is even to the smallest detail. To top this, it is even esthetically very well designed. A work of art in industrial design including the case. The accessories are also well built and can be used for multiple purposes not only electronics. The only thing I wish the manufacturer would change in future units is to make the tool base a bit heavier and maybe larger to minimize toppling over if it gets hit by something while using it. All in all, this is a true high quality multi-function tool in every respect. I recommend it very highly.
Good assortment of tips for various jobs and sturdy case with inlays.Only complaint is that the Zippo fuel in the 'frequently bought together' recommendation doesn't come with any adapters and won't fill this item.
works great for heat shrink tubing.some of the attachments came looking used.I don't know why but it came with butane in the torch tho.
Wonderful product excellent packaging can't believe I survived without it
After about a month of light use the torch has began to malfunction. The gas shut off no longer works and at times will go from a torch flame to sputtering gas balls of flame randomly. I would return if I could and go back to BenzOMatic
I like the fact that it heats very quickly, its easy to refill and you can take it anywhere. I mostly use it for soldering jobs and find it just great. Well worth the price and I would recommend it for those hard to get to places with an electric iron.
Looking at other reviews, I guess it's down to luck if you get a good one or not. I filled with isobutane from my camping stove and it lights first time every time. It's VERY hot.I was initially using it just as a torch but I had a piece of oak with a dent in it and couldn't be bothered getting the iron from the house. So I put the deflector tip on the torch, put some water on the dent, covered with a damp cloth and used the back of the (now very hot) deflector tip and was able to apply heat with great precision to the area needed, and removed the dent! So pleased to get extra functionality with this.Addressing other comments in negative reviews, I agree that the use of light components (plastic and aluminium) is a bit of a let down; make it from stainless steel (including safety switch and lock) and I would happily pay twice as much.
Excellent case and stand!! Works perfectly for soldering. Igniter safety is a little tricky to get used to, but after a few uses, it works with a flick of my thumb. Trigger lock ON is also intuitive and works well. Just did some solder repairs on a 90 year old saxophone and everything went perfectly.
This torch is very nice. It has all the accessories that I might need and feels robust
Well made. Works well, adjusts for flame size easily. One quirk: refilling the tank sets the flame size to high, automatically, but it starts easier if you set it lower. So just remember to reset the flame size after refilling. Also wait a couple minutes after refilling, before restarting.
The first torch I received did not function properly so I reached out to Lexivon customer Service. They wrote me back within 24hrs with questions and possible solutions. When they corrections they suggested did not work, they immediately sent out a replace unit with a return shipping label for the original unit. The replacement unit works perfectly. Although I have not had a chance to use the torch yet, I am sure it will preform as advertised. I would highly recommend the product and the company to anyone. A company is only as good as the customer service they provide for the product they offer. Lexivon Customer Service is top notch.
A great product, very easy to use.
I filled it and tried it out. Seemed easy to use
This product works well once it's lit... I used 9x refined butane but still have a hard time getting it to light up, sometime I have to click it over 10x before it lights up... It would get a 5 star rating otherwise...
Does what it says on the tin. Good value all round product.
Easy to use. I was looking for something between a soldering iron and a propane touch that would be good for small pieces of metal and large wire. Was able to solder small pieces of metal using the torch and soldering tip for wires. I found no difficulty using the safety features.
Great tool for different heating jobs.

Well made and did a great job
Reading other reviews before buying sold this kit to me,,quality product for a great price,,shop around as the price can vary quite a bit.
Use this for fluid art but the wife keeps taking it for the kitchen .AWSOME product , easy and very durable worth every penny
So, I paid the same for this that I had paid in the auto parts store. This is so much better. I haven't done anything but fill and light a few times, but wow compared to all the plastic p.o.s.'s I have bought before. Solid construction. Great flame. Lights great and consistent. The case and accessories all seem to be nice. The metal construction is the way to go if you ask me.
After 4 years it no longer lights at all. I read that some people say it is top heavy, which is right only if you lose the stand it came with.
Had this little broken steam engine for years, when I first tried to repair it using a soldering iron and my big blowtorch it was a complete fail, so its been sat on the shelf ever since, that is until I saw this little torch, so I ordered it with the engine in mind and it's been a complete success, the flame is so small you can aim it accurately at whatever point you need the head, i soldered the engine using the bare flame and it worked great, not tried any of the accessories yet but I'm very pleased with my purchase,I was also able to use the torch to heat the boiler and test the engine
This little torch kit. It works well and has a bunch of different uses.
Product worked perfectly however I then added the wrong butane by mistake. I spoke to the customer services team and they explained what I'd done wrong. They then replaced the unit free of charge along with a guide as to what fuels to use. Couldn't recommend the product or the company highly enough
Worth every penny found it easy to use and comfortable to hold
I have used it to solder and to shrink tubing, and it worked well. The only drawback is the safety which is a legal requirement so they had no choice but to include it.
Quick and easy use with solder seal wire connectors. Much faster than using a heat gun.
Lasts forever with each fill.

It is very hard to light one-handed and I cannot keep the flame burning.
Not bad. Work like it supposed too. Enjoy the size fits in places to Solder
Works just like it should. Gets hot fast
I used it for soldering wires outside and for soldering pipe inside, work great in both cases
I love the versatility of this torch. I bought heat shrink with solder already inside them. This works well for them and any heat shrink. Havent tried other attachments but the torch has really good heat control settings. Use at least 3x refined fuel and if you push the button until you hear gas hiss then finish pushing it, the torch will ignite with attachments every time. Hot knife also works well on nylon cord
Lo utilic para soldadura de plata y no funciona muy bien. En el catÃ¡logo dice que para joyerÃa. Pero realmente no funciona bien
Just waisted gas to fill 2 of these and not one worked.
I have been using this torch for awhile and was reasonably pleased with it. safety device for starting was a pain but I got used to it. Today I decided to try out the different tips for the first time and when I tried to remove the flame guard the whole nozzle came loose spewing butane gas everywhere. Of course I'm about 2 weeks past the return window so into the trash it went. $40 dollars wasted and lesson learned...VERY DISSATISFIED!!***UPDATE*** 1 star changed to a 5 star rating. After writing the original review Lexivon customer service reached out to me to address my issues with the original torch. They sent me a new torch that I have used extensively without any issues and I have been completely satisfied with the warranty process and the A+ customer support. I highly recommend this product and company!
Contantly have to re-ignite the butane and will only work on low. Ive tried everything to fix it and it works when it wants to.
this is an up grade of their original design. it stands up while still warm, thus is a little safer. the attachments are a little fiddley, but this thing makes serious heat, for most any solder job - and no need to plug in. with a little practice, it is quick to use, and provides heat NOW.

This has very much changed my silver smithing for the better. It's easy to use and I love all the parts that come with it.
Out of the box it was pretty impressive. It's less than a year old with less than 2 full tanks ran thru it and it's not so impressive now. Won't light
Top of the line torch by far, can't go wrong with item.
Product works great used other torches before igniter spark is nice because it's a thicker piece of metal not just a thin little wire it's built real well the only problem that I have with it is the safety latch but used every accessory and worked perfect
Great starter torch for jewelry! Able to solder multiple things and it has multiple uses for heating a variety of tasks. Controlling the flame would be nice but for the price you can't beat this torch!
jewelry its a verrrrry nice torch thanks guys.
Was surprised at the quality of the item, works as expected
The safety sux for use with one hand, works great for terminalting cabling, hearing stuck bolts and nuts, soldering etc the lock function is helpful but that safety is dumb.
It had it 2 weeks ago. I use the unit every day. So, turn on/off very often. Every time must unlock unit. I do not like it . Usually I have to to press ignition two times before start a flame. So, I have to unlock the unit two times. For professionals it is uncomfortable.

stopped working after 6 mo. of very little use. will not light, even after a complete refill when it worked it was great, not working it is junk. have no way of contacting seller. should at least last a year.
Easy to use, quality product and gets the job done.
can be used anywhere, no need for power
I noticed that the torch takes a long time to heat up... Really not sure what is the problem... It's disappointing
This is my second one of these that I have purchased. I bought one several years ago and have not had any problems. I needed a second one, so I purchased another. After using it a month it seemed like it was only getting half as hot as it should. I contacted the manufacturer (Lexivon) and they shipped me a replacement right away. I chalk this problem to just a fluke. The torch works great, and I had a fantastic experience with the manufacturer.
Not a big hit. Use it around the house and work. Pain to light sometimes, seems a bit cheap. Flame is not as strong as I had hoped.
I just want to fix everything with it
Super disappointed it will no longer work after 4 months!UPDATE !!!!!!The team reached out to me to fix the problem. They are sending a replacement and said it could be the butane I'm using. I am going to switch based on their recommendation. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!! I will purchase from this brand again because if it !

So far I don't have a bad thing to say
Worked well with what I needed
After filling with high quality butane and letting the torch rest for 5 minutes, the torch lit on first try and the flame was solid and steady. The torch has a good solid feel and does not at all feel "cheap" in any way. The safety lever that needs to be rotated to allow the trigger to be pulled ,is a bit ackward and has a bit of a catch in it's movement - but seems solid. The case is well laid out but the tips are a bit tricky to remove for use. The case is strong but the latches are probably a little on the weak side. I have only used it as a heat gun and soldering gun so far and both usages were flawless. Flame size is easy to control and there is a convenient lock to hold the trigger in the depressed position. It comes with a base that allows hands free placement of the torch on a bench or other flat suface (the bae could be heavier but is ok as is). Very happy with this purchase thus far!
Absolutely love this torch. using 11x refined butane and it works great! Great value!
I liked the way it holds in your hand. It's light weight and easy to work with. I used it on a toy car motor to solder the wires on, which are very small connections. There's a few choices of tips to choose from. Works well. It will also be very portable and no need for an electrical outlet. Would be nice if it came with a screw on cartridge system of butane, like the propane torches do. But no big deal.

It's almost impossible to light when using as a blowtorch,and I've really tried to like it but what's the point of a one hand action to light if you end up putting what's in your other hand down just to fiddle with it to light it, absolutely a waste of my time and money and so frustrating,that's why it's being returned,thank you
cheap and works great....
This torch is junk! I have tried two different torches thinking that the first one may have been a fluke or factory defect. The second is just as bad, if not worse than, the first. The torch will only light once out of about 40-50 tries. And when it does light, it will not stay lit for any longer than about 10 seconds. The torch has NEVER lit with any of the various tips installed. With the safety lock that has to be reset with every click of the igniter, this torch is completely unacceptable. Both of the torches I have tried behave in the same way. DO BOT BUY THIS TORCH!!
Nice, quality seems
Â This comes with 6 different attachments which is ideal for what I needed. Used for heat shrink on cables and also soldiering
Will have more than 1 use for this. Better than expected, quality is good. Very useful tool
All the parts of the solder kit are of high build quality, not the usual findings with imported tools. Then after checking place of manufacture, its Taiwan, which explains the Rolls Royce build quality.I do need to solder big motor vehicle connectors so the blow torch flame is nice and tight, ideal for localised heat without burning insulators.Good all round kit.

This is a well-built and versatile device. Although a 5-star product, there is room for improvement making this a 6-star item:1. Add a fuel gauge window.2. Make the safety lock optional or do away with it completely. IMO, the safety switch is unecessarry and frankly a nuisance because it must be engaged on every ignition attempt (it may take multiple tries to light). The ignition thumb button requires a decent amount of force to depress and extinguishes as soon as it is released. If a child has the strength to depress & HOLD that button and the wherewithal to simultaneously engage the flame lock, then the child would certainly have no problem figuring out the safety switch. The good news is, this switch can be easily removed by removing 5 Phillips head screws, carefully removing the housing, and removing the switch and the associated small spring (see pic). Reinsert the larger spring, align the thumb button into the recess, and reassemble.Regardless, still a great product with many uses. I mainly bought it to heat & soften Â½" underground irrigation hose lines for repair using barb fittings. Yes a heat gun can perform the same, but, the convenience of not needing to drag out a 75' extension cord and the small form factor when huddled in a small hole makes this an ideal device. There are certainly cheaper solutions, but the build quality and versatility of this unit sold me. It's excellent and I look forward to trying out the other features it offers.By the way, I have two of these units and burn Zippo butane in one and Bernzomatic (from Home Depot) in the other. Both burn fine with no issue and produce the same flame output. Neither of these butane products make any mention about the "refined" purity and and I'm a bit of a skeptic re the 3x, 5x, 11x, 99x "refined" no-name products based on some of their reviews. My only advice is to be sure the stem of the butane product correctly fits the torch. In the case of the two products I've used, no adapter is required, although I believe the Bernzomatic provided the best fit and least amount of lost butane during the filling process.
This is a fantastic tool. I was able to get into a real tight area without any problem. This butane torch performed flawlessly, better than expected. I'm so glad I made the purchase and I highly recommend giving it a try - you won't be sorry!

He soldado y va muy bien. La base soporte y la toma para la carga de gas, se pueden mejorar.
Excellent little torch, used for soldering and searing chicken from the pressure cooker and other foods... up until someone stole it, now I got to get a new...
Only complaint is sometimes could do to turn down a little more
Gave all the adult males in our family one for Christmas. Everyone loves the, a couple are using it as a kitchen torch.

Used it a couple of times very handy for tight plumbing jobs

The "start" instructions are TOTALLY incorrect??? You must push the igniter button AT THE SAME TIME you move the safety switch below it to the left? How they could screw this up is beyond comprehension?The attachments are NOT easily attachable? Again., the instructions(with the 2 small wrenches supplied) are erroneous again.
Â By far the best torch I've bought. The safety switch on it is like no others. And it's really versatile!
When I first received it, I like most of the people with complaints used a cheap butane but all was fixed one I started using Vector 11x after that all was wonderful. But about 4 months ago it started giving me trouble lighting up on 1st button press and this continues until now and its only getting worse. Another issue that arose is that now its become more of a flame thrower than a torch and sometimes just turns off mid-solder. I've tried various butanes to no avail. I really did like using it although I should of maybe gone for the 770 as that can get into tighter spaces with its more slender profile. Hopefully I can get an answer on how I can maybe fix this issue.
used my torch twice since. Having. It, every man needs this in his arsenal.
Una muy buena herramienta, se destaca su versatilidad
This product is exelent
This torch seems to be well made and has proven to be quite reliable. Its easy to fill. My only critique, albeit picayune, is I'd prefer if I could return the torch to its fitted case without having to detach the stand.
