Vector Vulcan Triple Torch Review

Vector Vulcan Triple Torch Lighter
Vector KGM Vulcan Torch Lighter
  First thing to know about Vector KGM, like Xixar, they back their lighters with a no proof of purchase lifetime warranty. For this review, we will taking an in depth look at the Vector Vulcan Triple Flame cigar lighter. The Vulcan pictured here is shown in the gunmetal satin finish. The lighter has smooth lines and fits comfortably in my hand. Nice overall weight, most importantly minimal plastic components. There is a single action pusher on the right side of the lighter. What I mean by single action is once depressed, the lid pulls back, and the triple torches ignite. Very simple and easy to use. Below, you can see the the three jets, begging to fire up a stogie! The Vulcan produces a very powerful blue flame of torching bliss. As expected, the torch is wind resistant as well.

  Vector KGM hits a home run by including CLR's favorite additional features, a fuel gauge window and cigar punch/cutter. With triple jets, a fuel gauge window is almost a must have. Not including tabletop lighters, they generally have very large fuel tanks.
Vector Vulcan Fuel Gauge
  The Vulcan has a suggested retail price of $49.99. Even paying full boat for this lighter, how can you go wrong? Recapping, you get a triple flame lighter, fuel gauge window, cigar punch, and a no proof lifetime warranty! Those four things hit on all CLR's hot buttons, making the Vulcan a top buy. The only real downside to this lighter is aesthetically it does not "wow" me on any level. This is of course personal preference. If you like the lighter aesthetically or do not care about looks, the Vector KGM Vulcan is almost a no brainer.
