|JetLine DT-101 Table Top Quad Lighter Review|
At almost 4" inches tall its presence does not go unnoticed. The DT-101 is offered in 3 leather wrapped options, black, brown, and light brown. If constantly refueling your lighters is annoying I can assure you this bad boy will ease your frustrations. DT-101 fuel tank is immense, keep a hefty supply of butane on hand for refills. The fuel tanks capacity will keep all four torches firing on all cylinders for many toasting and roastings. One of CLR's favorite features with any lighter is a single step to ignition. Pull down the thumb action side pusher, lid pops up, and four raging windproof flames emerge. It is impressive no doubt. Often times I find a mirror on the underside of a lid is gimmicky. Not the case here, this mirror is actually useful. Due to the size of the lid the mirror has a large footprint. As you are firing up your favorite stogie you can clearly see the cigar foot and touch it up if needed.
The bottom of this table top lighter has an easy to use fuel adjustment. It turned very smoothly for me using a fingernail. The JetLine is lacking a fuel gauge window, though, it would definitely compromise the overall aesthetics had there been one. The JetLine DT-101 retails for $69.99, but can readily be found sub $40. This is a solid lighter at that price point. Definitely, one of the best options for an affordable quality table top lighter.
