To ensure that your Airlighter is long lasting, we highly recommend using Bison’s Airlighter Fuel as it is made for Airlighters. It has been ultra filtered and has been tested not to clog the microscopic jets inside the fuel line. However, as long as you choose high quality non-clogging butane you can choose other brands of butane without voiding your Airlighter’s warranty.
The fastest and cheapest way to get Airlighter Fuel from your local retailer. Alternatively it is available right here on our website. Airlighter uses butane fuel, which you can normally find at your local hardware store or super-market.
In total, with a full tank of fuel and full batteries, you can expect about 15-30 fire lightings. If you like to go all the way from cold-to-cooking as fast as possible then you can expect about 10 fire lightings before needing to recharge.
To break it down, you will get about 7-15 minutes of burn time per tank (the flame is adjustable up or down so the burn time varies). A typical charcoal BBQ requires about 15-20 seconds of burn time before switching to fan mode.
In fan mode, you will get 30-35 minutes of strong fan time with the Airlighter 520 and about 45 minutes with the Airlighter 420. A typical charcoal BBQ requires about 1 minute of fan time to be fully lit or about 5 minutes before you are ready to cook.
Airlighters are designed to perform best at room temperature. We recommend leaving your Airlighter indoors and taking it out when you need it.
NEVER store an Airlighter in direct sunlight or at temperatures above 120°F (49°C).
ALWAYS make sure the Airlighter is turned off before storing. To ensure the flame is fully extinguished, run the fan for about 3 seconds before storing.
Absolutely. We have taken great care to ensure the Airlighter is safe to use. It is CPSC compliant to avoid accidental lightings and the materials and make-up of the product are designed to ensure safety. However, it is not suitable for use by children and should always be used with care.
Airlighter can light almost anything but it is not designed for lighting tobacco. The Airlighter shoots a strong flame and should never be pointed at yourself or others for any reason.
If there is any fuel in the tank then it can’t be taken on the plane. If you plan to travel and want to take your Airlighter with you then please contact us for advice on how to prepare your Airlighter for safe travel.
